APRIL MEETING NOTES

 

The next club meeting will be the 5th Friday of the month (5/29) to accommodate the Memorial Day weekend.

 

All ranges will be closed May 22 thru May 25 for the annual muzzleloaders rendezvous. Some ranges will also be closed May 20-21 for the muzzleloaders set up.

 

Doug has a new order of club caps, selling for $12. The hats are solid front/mesh back with the club emblem on the front. Doug also has the new club tee shirts for sale .They’re blue with the club emblem on the front. They are selling for $15. He still has some of the new club patches for sale at $12 each. The proceeds on these items go to the junior program. If you are interested, get in touch with Doug at 253-846-6767 or see him at the range.

 

Darrell Behounek asked me to remind everyone to please deposit all brass, including 22LR and 22 Mag, into the red brass containers on the firing line. A lot of this brass is being thrown into the trash or swept forward into the dirt where it is difficult to retrieve. Although 22 brass is not reloadable, it is turned into the recycler with the proceeds supporting the junior program.

ONE OF OUR OWN

 

As many of you may know, Darrin Williamson, our executive officer, suffered a devastating stroke a year ago. Since then, he has been unable to return to work and has had countless medical complications, which now include kidney failure. His wife Janet has volunteered to donate a kidney to Darrin. While transplants are lifesaving, the expenses incurred outside of the insurance coverage are overwhelming to the family. To assist with the uninsured expenses, Janet has started a fundraising campaign with HelpHOPELive, a trusted non-profit organization that administers donations for kidney transplant patient expenses.

If you would like to help, go to www.helphopelive.org and search for Darrin’s name. Donations can also be sent in Darrin’s name to:

Darrin is a long time member and has spent countless hours in support of our club and could sure use our help right now. All donations are greatly appreciated. Janet is also planning additional fund raising events soon. I will post the information here. If you have any questions or need additional information, email Janet at jaddw@comcast.net.
