I want to thank Jaclyn Baylander for taking care of our memorial garden outside of the club house. She put in some new plants to replace some that died and did some weeding. It looks great.

Our annual spring cleanup was held on Saturday May 7. Thanks to all of the members that came out to make this day a success. The grounds and club house look terrific.

Trap field 1 is now operational and available for anyone wishing to shoot on that field. The machine has been refurbished and new parts are on order to replace some of the parts that are wearing. Thanks to Brain Anderson , Clay Buhler, and Frank Cicero for their hard work and expertise in tearing down all of the skeet machines and the trap machine to clean, lube, and repair/replace worn parts. Job well done.

The first quarter financial reports will be posted on the bulletin board for everyone’s review. The club continues to strengthen its financials position. Thanks to all of our members for making this possible.
