A SPECIAL THANKS YOU TO ALL OF THE CLUB VOLUNTEERS WHO HELPED WITH THE YSSI WEEKEND IN LATE APRIL. YOUR TIME CONTRIBUTION MADE THE EVENT A GREAT SUCCESS. SORRY THAT I DID NOT GET THIS INTO AN EARLIER NEWSLETTER.
FAMILY MEMBERSHIP: A clarification of our Club’s Family Membership policy is: A member’s family, spouse and minor children, and family guests are entitled to the use our facilities when the member is present and only when the member is present. Minor Children upon obtaining their drivers license are eligible to become Junior Members, $5.00 per year, upon application. Children upon graduation from high school/18th birthday are expected to apply for their own ANNUAL MEMBERSHIP, subject to the Club’s Membership By-Laws, if they desire to continue using the Club’s facilities. There have been recent occurrences where members have permitted their minor and older children to use their gate key to obtain entrance to the Club Grounds without the member or spouse being present. PLEASE DO NOT GIVE/LEND YOUR GATE KEY TO YOUR CHILD/CHILDREN/OTHER GUESTS TO USE THE FACILITIES WITHOUT YOU, THE MEMBER, OR YOUR SPOUSE BEING ON THE GROUNDS WITH HIM/HER/THEM. Individuals who are not Club Members without proper escort will be directed to leave the Club’s Grounds’.
The CSC Attorney checked out the Illinois Statutes and determined that a MINOR is any individual under the age of 18.
Hunter Education Class: A class will be held on August 12-14 in the Club House. For information/reservation contact Lowell Bennett @ (309) 274-5586.
NEED WORK HOURS: Saturday, July 17, is the delivery date for a semi-trailer load of Clay Birds for the Shotgun Range. Dale Schroeder, 309/369-6569, will appreciate any and all help unloading this load of Clay Birds into the new storage garage located just behind Range #1.
Work dates are still tentatively set for the weekend of July 30 – August 1. The bullet impact area at the rear of Range 1 needs to be cleared of rocks and built up to preclude rounds from going thru the trees behind the Range. We are trying to obtain the use of applicable heavy equipment for this weekend.
Mike James, our Club House Maintenance Director, needs individuals experienced in tuck-pointing (club house walls) and plumbing (faucet repair/replacement). His phone is (309) 274-6473. If you have any other skills that would be helpful in building maintenance/repair, please contact Mike and offer your services.
Individuals with weed whackers are needed to trim around areas (buildings and trees) where the mowers cannot reach. This project will be ongoing throughout the summer season. Contact any Board Officer or Board Member for crediting your hours for doing this project.
