NO HUNTING ON CLUB GROUNDS!
Just to reiterate, there is absolutely NO HUNTING allowed on Club grounds! If we catch anyone hunting (this includes shooting tweety birds), we will have you discharged from the Club. It may be legal to shoot house sparrows, starlings and pigeons (live ones) but they are off limits on our Club grounds.
We will be having a work party on Saturday, November 2nd starting at 8:00AM to do some clean up around the Club. The weather shouldn’t be too cold yet so come on out and get some hours in before the end of the year rolls around. Contact Cally Morgan at 691-3427 for more information.
