SEPTEMBER MEETING NOTES
The start of demolition of the existing clubhouse has been pushed back to November as the final plans on the new facility work their way thru the Pierce County permit system. This will also change final completion of the facility to sometime in February 2016.
President Mark Curtis was contacted by folks representing the Outdoor Channel about an upcoming television show to be called The American Marksman. In this series, there would be several matches around the country, mostly postal matches, with competitors using smallbore, pistol and rifle, cumulating in state/regional matches, where the winners would go on to compete in a national match to crown the overall winner. The show producers have expressed interest in our club as the venue for the state match that would be held July 2016, with an estimated 300 to 350 competitors plus spectators over a three day period. At this point, Mark is in preliminary talks with the producers to see if this is something we would be able and willing to host and if it would be beneficial to our club. He should have more information at the next board meeting.

The juniors are shooting on the pistol range Tuesday nights with several new shooters from the ROTC program at Rogers High School. The ROTC shooters normally shoot air gun, but are shooting smallbore while here at the club.
The juniors would like to thank club member Al Barie for his very generous donation of smokeless and black powder. The proceeds from the sale of the powder will go to support the junior program to buy ammunition and much needed supplies.
