President’s Message – July 2013

President’s Message

(July 2013)

The berms for the hand gun range continue to be built as a lot of dirt was brought in this past week. At this time we still do not have a completion date.  I will keep you all updated as things progress.  If you have any comments or questions, please contact the committee chairman, Greg Baylander at 815-494-7321or email him

As the conceal carry law comes to fruition in whatever form that will be, the BOD will be discussing and issuing guidance on carrying concealed weapons on club property. If any of you have any suggestions, please contact me at or any BOD member.

The sporting clays venue has been expanded to 8 stations. If you haven’t already, I encourage you to give it a try. It’s a lot of fun.

Through a number of initiatives over the past few years, the club is doing well financially. As always the quarterly financial reports are hanging on the closet door bulletin board for your information.

The club will again be a sponsor for the Boy Scout Shoot at the Upland Hunt Club on September 14, 2013. If you interested in shooting in this event, contact Chip Bartel at
