This year we are selling some of our fresh cut Christmas trees we have been growing. There are 40 christmas trees for $30 each. They will be for sale every Saturday and Sunday in December starting on December 2nd until we run out.

This past year we had a great fireworks display the club is looking for donations for this coming years 4th of July fire works celebration.

The Meat Shoot was a great success we would like to thank all who came to support the sportsman’s club. We look forward to seeing you next year.

MEAT SHOOT October 8th 11 a.m to 6 p.m. There will be beer, raffles, assortment of meats to win. Everyone is welcome to come out.

Octobers officers meeting September 28. Octobers members meeting October 5.

Thanks to the fireworks team for giving us the best display ever. It was a great picnic, despite the rain.

Our current social media content volunteer will be leaving our club in July. He has developed our website and Facebook page, bringing them back to life. To keep the marketing and information flowing, we need someone to take over as content creator. This is an opportunity to take control of these social media sites and make them your own.

We have seen several new members join the club as a result of Bill’s efforts, and we would like to continue that forward movement. It takes Bill 1-2 hours a month to maintain the two media resources.

This would be a great opportunity for a high school student to add to their college application. Duties include: updating the website with meeting minutes every month, announce news on both platforms, and collecting photos to add to the media sites.

If you are interested in taking on this responsibility, please contact a club director, or you can call Bill at 618-520-3551. (posted 6/18/2023)

We have a few albino catfish in both lakes. Since they are rarely caught, we are offering a reward. Get a $25 gift card with photo proof that you caught one. We ask that you catch and release the albinos. (posted 6/18/2023)

The club’s Fall Meat Shoot will take place on Sunday, October 8th. New (2022-2023) members will need to volunteer some hours on this day to maintain their membership. More information will be provided as the event date draws nearer. (posted 6/18/2023)

Hay for Sale: Contact Roger at 618-789-1625. This is the first cutting of the season. Next cutting will be around the third week of June. (posted 6/1/2023)

I (Bill) will be leaving the USA in July. For the past six months, I have struggled to get the club’s social media back online and active. We now have a vigorous and updated website and a Facebook page that gets many views per month. In order to keep this success moving forward, we need one to two people to continue those efforts.

It will require maybe an hour of your time per month. Our club secretary will email you the monthly meeting minutes to draw information from. During events and Saturday work parties, you might want to be available to take photos to post online.

If you are interested in helping, please see Bill or John (club vice president) within the next few weeks. Both are usually available during Saturday morning work parties. (Posted May 23, 2023)

One way to help improve the club is by annually reviewing and changing the club’s by-laws. If you think something should be changed, added, or deleted to help move the club forward, then you can make suggestions to the club directors. This process is coming to a close by the end of May, so contact your directors as soon as possible. (updated May 23, 2023)

We had a full house for the Hunter Safety Training this weekend. Always good to see the younger generation getting into hunting. Thank you for our trainers, and those who prepared lunch for the class members. (posted 4/15/2023)

It is that time of the year that requires weekly cutting of the lawn. Well, the club’s lawn is acres and acres. Who cuts it? It often comes down to two of our great members. Let’s send a special thank you to Bill Goodman and JP. Come out during the week and you might find them on the tractors. Without these two guys, we would not have such a great looking property and a comfortable time fishing around the lakes. Thank you, gentlemen. You are recognized for your efforts on behalf of the club.
