VACATIONS/TEMPORARILY AWAY FROM HOME?
Are you going to be “TEMPORARILY AWAY” (maybe for the winter, an extended vacation or job demands)? More and more monthly newsletters are being returned to the Club marked as “TEMPORARILY AWAY”! When you notify the Post Office that you are going to be “TEMPORARILY AWAY” they will ONLY HOLD or FORWARD 1ST CLASS MAIL. All other mail is returned to the sender. Your monthly newsletter is mailed to you using Bulk Rate Postage. Consequently, your newsletter is returned to the Club marked POSTAGE DUE @ $ .39 which the Club has to pay to retrieve it. The Club then has had to put another $ .39 stamp on it to resend it to you. Your monthly newsletter has now cost your Club an additional $ .78 plus the time and inconvenience for each newsletter returned this way. Your Club does not know if you are going to be gone for 1 month, 6 months, or how long.
THEREFORE, EFFECTIVE IMMEDIATELY, ALL RETURNED “TEMPORARILY AWAY” NEWSLETTERS WILL NOT BE FORWARDED TO YOU AND YOU WILL BE PLACED ON THE NO NEWSLETTER LIST UNTIL YOU NOTIFY THE CLUB SECRETARY THAT YOU HAVE RETURNED. ANY “TEMPORARILY AWAY” HELD / RETURNED NEWSLETTERS WOULD THEN BE FORWARDED TO YOU!!
If you notify the Club Secretary of any planned extended stay away from your residence before you leave, your mailing address can be updated so that you can still receive your monthly newsletter, as some members have, while on that extended stay away from your home.
Mauser Match rules are casual center-fire off-hand rifle matches at 50 meters for rifles with open sights and pre-1964 military bolt action repeaters.
