Summary of the Annual Members Banquet:
- We had a great turnout, even with the COVID restrictions that were put in place. The food was catered by the Deerstand and was as awesome as usual. There was a nice amount of Silent Auction items donated along with a few door prizes. A big "Thank you" goes out to the people and businesses that donated these items, and to those who generously bid on them.
- League Awards were presented by President George Carleton. Click here to see the list of winning teams, top guns, and team sponsors in each sport competition. Congratulations to all the teams.
- The Cash Raffle tickets were completely sold out! Thank you to evryone for selling them and for buying them. Congratulations to all the winners. Click here to see the list of Cash Raffle winners.
- The Annual October Meeting was short; given by President George Carleton. He gave a "State of the Club" report which indicated that, even though we were shutdown for a couple months in early Spring, we faired very well; we're actually better than we were last year at this time. I believe this is because of our gun club members, as they are the ones that make our club possible, and are the key to its success. The many volunteers, board members, participants, youth, and community give our club purpose. Thank you to everyone.
- The one open board position was also filled during the meeting. This fills all open board positions going into 2021.
