NOTICE UPDATE

Attention Club Members,

I have an update on the club being used for a personel event this month. The dates have changed from a Thursday and Saturday to a Tuesday and Thursday. So, the club will not be unavailable on Tuesday, February 24th and Thursday February 26th 8am to 3pm each day. Please mark that on your calendars. Sorry for the change in plans, but I believe this will work out better for other members. Freeing up a Saturday should cause less conflicts for members.

Thank you for your understanding.

Later,
Mark

P.S. I still plan on disabling any keys tied to memberships that have not been paid in fill within the next 2-3 weeks. Just a reminder.

 

NOTICE

Attention everyone . . .

Please pay your 2015 dues as soon as possible. I have to pay just over $1500 in property taxes and the club could use the money to cover our expenses. If your dues are not paid by the 15th of February, I will be deactivating your keys. If you need to work something out or have any questions or concerns, just get in touch with me.

If the members who are running any of the league nights could please follow up with your shooters to make sure they pay their membership dues, I would greatly appreciate it. If you could get me a list of who is shooting in your leagues, it would be nice. (Tuesday Nighters are all paid up! Thanks Guys!)

If anybody out there has any suggestions or concerns about the club be it ever so small, please speak up! I will try to do whatever I can to make everyone happy.

I can see that our backstops will probably last through this year but that will be about it. We paid around $2,500 for the backstops back in May of 2009. So, they have lasted for 6-seasons. We have to come up with a way to raise some money to replace them or figure out a way to tighten them up and re-band them. I could use some feed back on this with any suggestions you might have. I have checked the cost of new backstops and the cost will be between $4,000 and $5000 depending on which ones we purchase.

Later,
Mark

 

Leagues and Other Stuff

Monday Night League is starting on Monday, December 1st for whoever is interested. I will not be running the league this year. Hopefully someone else will take the responsibility but I am not going to worry about that. So, if you are interested in shooting the Monday Night League, please show up at the club around 6:30 if possible and we sill see how things shake out.

I am not sure about the the other league nights. If the people in charge of those nights want to let me know, I will send out a mass email to notify everyone.

Bill Astell and myself have been running the club pretty much by ourselves for the last how many years? I think I have been doing this for close to 20. There are of course others who have helped us out and we do appreciate it. I really don't want to mention names because I am sure I will forget someone. Matt Meidl comes to mind because he does take care of all the electrical issues. Kurt and Matt Armstrong are always there for the heating issues. I am sorry if I have not mentioned more that have helped out in the past. My memory is not what it used to be.

The bottom line is it has mainly been the two of us doing most of the work. I do not have the motivation to take on this responsibility much longer. I have other things that are more important to me at this stage of my life. So, I am open to any suggestions that you may have on how to get the club back on track with some other responsible people in charge so the club does not go down the crapper! I think a meeting of some of our stronger members would be appropriate. By stronger I mean people who want to take on some responsibility and not just throw out suggestions without the willingness to help!

If anyone has some ideas on how this could be done, I would really appreciate it. Something has to be done soon! I am willing to show someone the ropes if they step forward. If not, then I am going to drop this responsibility off on someone who may not take the same pride in running the club as Bill and I have done in the past. Sorry to make this sound so doom and gloom, but I am tapped out!

I am not sure I have all the members emails, so if you know of any other members that may have not received this message then please forward it to them . . . Spread the word!

I'm tired.
