If anyone has old trophies, the club is always in need of them; Jim Brotherton recycles them for the kids’ Monte Heiser shoot.

Please remember to lock the gate whenever you use the club; and turn the tumblers after you open the lock. Lock the 2 locks together so Consumers can get in.

COMMITTEE REPORTS:

 

PRIMITIVE:    The Fall Shoot was good for the Primitive Range, good turnout.

A big thanks to Todd, Tyler and Connor McCastle for working on the Primitive Range, a fantastic job of cleaning up. 

 The Primitive Committee is hosting a Rendezvous the weekend of October 20, 21, and 22.  

The Swamp Shoot will be Nov. 4. This is open to Members and Friends.  Invite friends and neighbors out to shoot.  Shooting starts at 9am, cost is $10.00 and a $ 3.00 50/50. Hosting this year’s Swamp Shoot will be Leon, who won last year’s smoothbore class, and Herb, who won last year’s rifle class.  Feel free to bring a pot of food to share.

 

Someone was smoking on the range during the Fall Shoot; some “No Smoking” signs will be posted.

 

Don will not be Booschway next year. We need a New Booschway for the Primitive next year.

 

Barry thanked everyone who helped him look for his Jag for his gun.

 

SHOTGUN:  The new roof for the Trap house is on, just a few thing to finish up.

The Fall shoot went well, with a record number of shooters and money turned in.

A thanks to Jim and Logan for helping out.  Thanks to Marty for the shotgun donations.

RANGE:  Dead until the Turkey Shoot.

 

GROUNDS:  Needs mowing and weed trimming.

KITCHEN:  The kitchen is getting ready for the Turkey Shoot..

 

Old Business:    Larry looked for the Farmall tractors for sale on M52, but found 

out it was an auction, which he missed.

              Larry reported he only had one Club 75th anniversary shirt left (XXL).  Larry said he would submit a report at next meeting.  Larry thanked Judd and his daughter-in-law Amber for making the shirt sale happen.

 

      Discussion was held on doing away with the Turkey Shoot and hosting the 3 year Michigan Muzzleloading State Rifle Shoot.  One drawback was getting help in the kitchen for the 5-day shoot. The kitchen committee said they could cover the event if they only did breakfast and lunch.  Hosting this would allow us to show off the club to a larger crowd of muzzleloaders.  Leon made a motion to hold the state shoot here, 2nd by Jim Dietrich and passed.

New Business:   Jim Dietrich asked about a budget for the archery range, after discussion it was determined that any money for the archery range would be part of the Primitive budget.

Show & Tell:   Jim Dietrich in a Pedersoli Blue Ridge Flintlock that he is in the process of redoing with a mustard finish.

                                                                         

                                                           MTAj – Barry Bohnet; 2nd – Leon Dennis

  

 

50/50 Raffle:  Leon won and donated his winnings back to the club. Thanks Leon.
