COMMITTEE REPORTS

 

PRIMITIVE:    Don said the Rendezvous went great; 32 people showed up (24 men, 6 women, and 2 youth).  A women vendor from the UP selling some real nice pelts

and a variety of other things wants to join the club; I’ll have her name next newsletter.

Barry said his Trade Gun Presentation at the Rendezvous went well.

The 1st time Rendezvous made $811.00  and they are already planning on having  the 2nd Annual Rendezvous next year. A suggestion to have a youth

Hawk & Knife prize was made by new member Pat.     Don thanked everyone who helped out.

 

The Swamp shoot only had 4 people show up and no one bothered to shoot.

 

Don is not going to be Booschway, so the Primitive Range needs a new one.

Larry put more Membership applications in the club house, if you need a PDF of the file let me know.

 

Jim Dietrich brought up discussion on getting a used ATV for the Primitive Range to help take care of the targets and make it easier to take care of the range. Jim

said a good used ATV could be had for less than $ 1,000; it was decided the way to do this was to present it as part of the Primitive Budget.
