President’s Message – August 2016

President’s Message

(August 2016)

Toni Hart, wife of Rick Hart, passed away last week. Toni and Rick were long time members of the club and contributed greatly in making this club what it is today. Toni put in a many hours cooking, cleaning, and contributing to the various registered shoots and events that were held. In honor of her memory, the club will be making a donation to the Alzheimer Association. I ask that you keep Rick and his family in your prayers and thoughts.

The Club is hosting our annual Silver Dollar Shoot on August 13 & 14. If anyone is interested in shooting in this event or helping out, please contact Dave Schroeder at 815-988-7552.

We have finally competed one target pulley system on the handgun range. The plan is to install two more systems after this one is used and tested. Thanks to Randy Scott and Greg Baylander for designing and installing it.

The Second quarter financial reports will be post on the club bulletin board this week and will be available for your perusal.
