Need A Volunteer:
We are in need of a volunteer who would be willing to score deer, measure other game, and measure fish caught by our members. We have plaques on our club walls with names of members who have the largest harvested game and fish for a number of species. We currently don’t have anyone in the club doing this measuring task so we are not able to get names added to the plaques. If you would be willing to volunteer to handle this important task, please let us know by e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org.

Eliminate Archery Tower?:
We have begun to discuss whether to keep the archery tower up or remove it this coming spring. It seems that no one is using it any more and it needs some rebuilding that will cost the club money. If you still use the tower to shoot from, please come out to a meeting and let us know. Also, if you use the tower please indicate that in the log book when you sign in at the club. Instead of noting indoor or outdoor range, just put archery in the column of the log book. We will continue to discuss the issue through next spring so we can make an informed decision about removing or not.
Through a donation of books and videos by Ort Burleigh’s family, we have set up a small lending library at the club. If you wish to borrow an item just sign the book with your name, date, and what you borrowed. The books and videos are located on the table next to the small refrigerator. There is a VCR Player there to lend too if you don’t have one to play the tapes on.
We now have t-shirts with the club logo printed on the front. They are available at meetings at $20 each. Here is a photo of the actual shirt, they arrived 2/22/19. All profits we make from selling these will be donated to the Verona Food Pantry.
