COMMITTEE REPORTS

 

PRIMITIVE:  The Annual Frost in the Tee Pee, Winter Woods Walk was held January 13th ,2018.

 

What a good day.  Nice clean snow made everything clean and fresh.  Yes it was a bit chilly in the morning, 9 degrees, but rose to a pleasant 16 degrees by mid afternoon.  

 

A very special thank you to all who helped get the range ready and helping setup, and all who

brought the wonderful culinary creations!  We had nine pots:  potatoe soup, corn chowder,

venison meatballs, 2 beef stews, moose chili, chicken noodle soup, beef and barley soup,

and kraut and kielbasa.  If you had come just for the food, it would have been worth the trip.

 

We had 10 smooth bore shooters, 12 rifle shooters ,and 1 pistol shooter. 

Registration took in $262.00 for the club.

 

Again, no one was hurt, which made for a great day and another successful shoot.
