JANUARY MEETING NOTES

 

Doug reports that we lost 6 trees in the south part of the range during the last big wind storm. There was no structure damage.

 

Doug has had a load of sand delivered for use on the berms on the 25 yard line pistol range. He will be putting it on the berms as time permits, so we can expect a few short pistol range closures while he does his work.

 

If you know of anyone interested in attending a hunter education class, they must register on line in advance of the class. The classes fill up very quickly, so plan ahead. If you would like to register for a class or if you have any questions, you can get more information here: http://www.pbrsc.org/HunterEd/HunterEd.htm, or contact Ken Swasey at 253-241-8995 or Rockie Walston at 253-255-2292.

 

The club thanked Darrell Behounek for his service as our club secretary for 2014.

 

Anyone who has membership questions should contact the membership secretary, Ben Locicero at 253-848-2204. He can answer all questions regarding joining the club, membership issues, badge problems or troubles with your gate code.

 

Doug has some of the new club patches and new club caps (the caps are almost gone!) for sale at $12 each. The proceeds go to the junior program. If you are interested, get in touch with Doug at 253-846-6767.

 

The shotgun guys are still shooting on the first Wednesday evening of the month, along with the second Sunday monthly. The Wednesday night shoots are very informal and lots of fun and itís a great time to brush up on your trap skills. A round of 25 birds is $5, and Rockie also has some punch cards for $30 for 10 rounds of trap.

 

The 2015 budget was approved by the board. The club will be operating on a budget of just over $183,000 for the year.

 

The board of directors for 2015 were sworn in at the meeting. Names and contact information is on the back page in print or can be found on line at http://www.pbrsc.org/index_files/Page355.htm.

Toys for Tots Campaign

 

Last December, our club held two Toys for Tots donation shoots. Between the muzzleloaders, IPSC and IPDA, the club was able to donate about $3,200 which was handed over to the Marines to be used for Toys for Tots on the last Sunday before Christmas.
