What's happening at our club.....

 March 

This meeting on the 20th will see us rewarding all of the winners from our Ice Fishing Derby. It’s a fun evening with lots of smiling kids and adults! Join us this Wednesday night at 6:30 for our great potluck too.

If your dues aren’t paid by the end of this month, you will have to pay a late charge of $20.00. So, PLEASE PAY YOUR DUES.

Our annual Gun Raffle begins this month, and it’s better than ever this year because we are offering two more guns to make the odds of winning even better!  For the same $5.00 as every year, we will be selling no more than 2000 tickets, and you will be eligible to win any of the 12 guns offered. Watch the next newsletter for a list of places where you can purchase a ticket, or watch the “Events” page of our webpage for the list. Please take some tickets to sell and certainly buy one or more! Alan Paradis will be distributing them.

 

April 

Hooray, this is our annual auction meeting! It’s a really fun night when you have the opportunity to almost steal somebody else’s stuff. There is fishing equipment (last year a fishing motor), shooting equipment (often bullets), sometimes reloading tools, camping stuff, baked goods, vegetables, and unimaginable other items. Dinner will start at 6:30 PM on Wednesday the 17th, followed by the auction. You might think about towing a trailer or using a pickup to take home all of the things you are sure to NEED to buy! If you don’t have a pickup, you might think of buying one just for this event.

Our club only Summer fishing derby begins. Register and you might get the biggest fish of the open water season and win!
