Message from the President

January 20, 2018

To my fellow EGC Members,

First Happy New Year and welcome to 2018 which will be a great year at EGC!!

I want to start out as I usually do thanking the volunteers that keep our club vibrant and running. Our club continues to exceed all performance expectations due to our volunteers and Board of Directors who I can attest, perform all of their duties with our 1,100 plus members in mind when they take on any project or action. I am humbled to be a part of a team like this that is focused like a laser on making the club better for everyone.

When it comes to volunteering, we have some great opportunities in the near future to step up. Once again Lent fish fires are right around the corner. These are huge events that require volunteers to make them successful. Even if you are only able to help out for one or two nights during Lent, that is a great help to the club. Also, if you would like to back up the weekend managers and learn the ropes, you are welcome to come out and help. You will be trained on how to run the shoot counter, pour some drinks and really help out the primary managers because come spring time, it will be busy again and having two people staffing the club is really important.

The other area for volunteers is as Range Safety Officers. RSOs keep our range safe and operating. Without RSOs, our rifle/pistol range doesn't open. We will have an RSO class on March 10 and 11, which will be upon us quickly so lock those dates down now so you support the club as an RSO. This is an NRA certified class and this is to build the RSO pool for EGC. EGC clubhouse

One area which is a paid area is the shooting/trap help. We are looking for reliable applicants to apply as trap help. Trap Help is a great way for young folks to have a job and work for a great organization. Minimum age is 16 and we are looking for help on Thursday days, Thursday nights and weekends.

I want to announce the newly named February Fun Shoot and Pot Luck Feast on Sunday, February 18. This replaces the Wild Game Feed and Fun Shoot. After the New Year's Day Soup Day, which was a huge success, this should be even bigger. There will be live bluegrass music, so bring out your favorite or signature dish for all to share. Come out and get to know other members, meet your club leadership and have a great time.

Our first registered shoot of the year will be March 18. Don't miss this event as it will be the first opportunity to start getting your targets and practice in for the registered shooting year.

As we roll into to 2018, I see great things on the horizon for our club to continue making it the Best Damn Gun Club Ever!! Thanks to everyone for your help. Stay safe and keep shooting!!
