As I write this, I find myself hoping that winter is finally over. We have a list of new things going on at the club. We just received our clay target shipment/reloading component order for the spring and summer. Thanks to Dale Snow and Marvin Zook for their generous donations of time, machinery, and fuel. For those of you who are unaware, Dale and Marvin donate time, machinery, and fuel to enable us to handle the pallets of targets (roughly a ton each) and, in this order, some seven and a half tons of lead shot.
Dale’s brother, Keith hauled the zero turn mower out to Greenhill Farms to have it serviced for the upcoming mowing season. The mower will be fueled up and ready anytime someone might have time to help with mowing.
Mark Johnson of Johnson Electric is always helping with electrical needs as well as carpentry work, which is also greatly appreciated.
Additionally, Dale and Keith have again sponsored the Clayton Snow Memorial registered skeet competition which consisted of 100 – 12 gauge targets. The Snow family donated $100.00 in added prize money. This year’s winner came out of E class—Marie Palmer from Plum, PA, who shot a 97 to beat all the guys, Congratulations, Marie.
Dale and Keith Snow along with Mark Johnson and others also finished the paneling and trim work in the main clubhouse. It looks very nice.
Now the big news! We are in the early stages of setting up our club website. You can access it by going to: www.meadvillesportsmansclub.com. As I said, it has just been started and currently has our history and other pertinent information, but soon we hope to have pictures and the minutes of our monthly meetings for those of you who can’t attend. A copy of our membership application will be available for you to print, fill out, and mail in. We will be announcing planned activities, shoot results, and other information—so be sure to check the site frequently. Welcome to the 21st Century.
Please find enclosed this year’s raffle tickets. We need to sell as many tickets as possible this year, in the particular, as we have found that we need to address a problem with our main clubhouse foundations as soon as possible. This repair will cost in the 10-12 thousand dollar range. If you need any additional tickets, please contact one of the club officers, and they will see that you receive them. Please plan now for volunteering ½ day of your time to help sell tickets or collect money at the Sportsman’s Club booth at the annual Crawford County Fair. We will have a sign-up sheet and can use all the help available. Please call me at 814-587-3405 or sign up at the club in the skeet building.
