Message from the Board

December 12, 2018

To Our Fellow EGC Members:

Thanks to all of the volunteers who continue to do great things in keeping the club running smoothly!! We have been very busy with projects and prepping for upcoming events.

Upcoming events: This Sunday, December 16th, is our 78th annual Tom & Jerry Turkey Shoot, Raffle and Dinner. All members should have already received tickets in the mail and you still have time to bring them in for a chance at the great raffle prizes. There are four superior firearms and a great Grizzly cooler. If you can come out Sunday, we will be having a Turkey Shoot beginning at 11 am for some nice prizes and if you can stick around, there will be raffles and attendance prizes throughout the day which you must be present to win. Tom & Jerry main raffle prizes don't require attendance to win. We might have forgotten to mention the fantastic turkey lunch we'll be having with all the fixings will be served around 12:30 pm. If you can bring in a dessert that would be great!! Lunch will be done by donations.

On January 1st we'll be having our New Year's Day Soup Party. What better way to recover from the night's festivities than to have some homemade soups and a Bloody Mary!! Everyone is encouraged to bring either a soup, side or a dessert. It is a great time and there's always a great turn out to meet other members.

Five Stand: The five-stand range is progressing quite well given the weather and availability of volunteers. We expect completion sometime this winter and to be ready to shoot early spring at the latest. Five-stand clay shooting will be a great addition to what the club offers and is a testament to the hard work volunteers do to continue our success.

FFL and transfers: Our FFL procedures dictate that you must contact our FFL manager, Mike Loehr, in order to make ANY transfer. This has been the club's policy for over a year but lately some members have not been following it. Effective immediately, any firearm transfer sent to the club without notification to our club's FFL will be returned. Transfers without notification and coordination will not be accepted. Please go to our website, www.edwardsvillegunclub.org, for FFL instructions. EGC clubhouse

Volunteers: With the new year right around the corner, we want to remind everyone that there are great opportunities to help your club and volunteer. First urgent one will be during Lent in the spring for our fish fries. These are big events and a great chance to help out if you are able.

Good of the Order: This month's Good of the Order winner is Joe Galvin. Come in and claim your complimentary Shot Card!!

The gift of membership: This holiday season, please consider giving the gift of EGC membership to your friends and family. Whether you choose to sponsor a potential member or you if you choose to sponsor and pay for a year of membership for a friend or family member, the joys and benefits of our great club will truly be cherished. Our membership application is available in the clubhouse and online at www.edwardsvillgunclub.com. Get applications and payments submitted now for approval at our January 14th board meeting.

Holidays: We hope that everyone had a great Thanksgiving and from your Board of Directors, we would like to wish you and your families a Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays and Happy New Year!! But we are going to see everyone on Sunday at Tom & Jerry so we can say it in person!!!

Stay safe and keep shooting!!
