We had our BOD MTG on Tuesday and recapped events in April. Most importantly the renovation of the indoor pistol range has begun. All the duct work for the heat and A/C in the main hall and bathrooms has been ripped out, replaced and relocated to make room for the new ventilation system for the new range. There is still a lot of work to be done and help is always welcomed. From here on in there will always be something to do on this major project.
The border walk and fishing derby was lightly attended. All that did come enjoyed a great day, burgers, hot dogs ice cream and a beautiful MSC cake that Paul and Maya picked up for the day. Again, the pub nights have been doing very well and I think the informal “come and go as I please” night is a hit. Another thing that is being discussed is the start time for regular dinners, and we’re looking into serving the food at 6:30 instead of 7:30. There will be a survey coming out soon, please respond, but also let me know your thoughts on adjusting the start time of the regular Thursday dinner nights. So far, among the members that I have spoken with about a potential new start time, there seems to be a 50/50 split.
Congrats to Dennis Ford and Matt Lewis – they have both been elevated to regular membership. The newsletter will be getting back on track. We have a person to take on that job and it will be back up again soon. Not a lot scheduled in May and in June the veterans cook out & fishing day will be having their 10th event. More on that to follow.
A disturbing incident happened recently was discussed at the BOD meeting. A few days prior to the last pub night, the kitchen crew took inventory of food that was at the club for that Friday night. There was one full case of chicken breasts in the freezer that was going to be used to make chicken sandwiches, On pub night they went to get the chicken and there were only 3 pieces left. We have had a lot of things disappear lately, not only the chicken, but utensils, pans, tools, and stuff from all around the club. This behavior is totally unacceptable and will not be tolerated. Please treat and respect our surroundings, fellow club members and club property. Do not take something that is not yours. If you need to borrow something please ask or tell a Board Member or Committee Chair Person. There will be a sign out/in sheet at the information station if you need or want to borrow something. That is not a problem as long as it comes back and it’s not needed for a club function at the time.
On a more positive note, come on by and throw a line in the pond as the fishing has been great, or just come by and enjoy our club. Lastly, a huge thanks goes out to Petey for building a new fish grate to keep our fish in our ponds.
That’s about it.
Hope to see you all at the club!
