To Our Fellow EGC Members:

We first want to start out this newsletter with a big thank you to the membership for participating in the Tom & Jerry Turkey Shoot, Dinner and Raffle in December. This was a great event, a huge success for the club and the Turkey Shoot was a big hit!! We hope to do more of these types of events in the future. Thanks to all the volunteers who helped that day!

The New Year's Day Soup Party and Fun Shoot was also a big event. Thank you to all the members that brought food, side dishes, desserts and snacks!! We needed an extra table just for all the food that was brought and if you left hungry, it was your own fault. Thanks also to the fantastic volunteers who worked that day and made sure that all of our members and guests were well taken care of and entertained with another successful Turkey Shoot!!

As everyone is aware, we've experienced some snowy weather lately. We were very pleased to see almost 25 volunteers come out this past Sunday and help to clean the snow off of all the walkways, the trap fields, the range, the clubhouse, sidewalks and the parking lot. It was an outstanding effort and a demonstration of this gun club's ability to come together and get things done.

Lastly we would be remiss if we neglected the volunteers who do the day-to-day things that keep the club running and viable as a successful enterprise. So much goes into the daily operations that are behind the scenes to make our club work the right way, which would be unsustainable without their efforts. So to the managers, RSO's, people who support the fish fries, people who work on the grounds keeping our club beautiful, our league staff, and everyone who contributes, THANK YOU!!! If you would like to volunteer in any capacity, please email the club at EGC clubhouse


On February 17 we will hold our February Fun Shoot & Pot-Luck Feast (formerly known as the Wild Game Feed). We plan on doing a Turkey Shoot this day and on the trap side an Annie Oakley shoot as well. Once again members are encouraged to bring any main dish, sides, appetizers or desserts they want to show off, and bring your guns too. Last year's event was a lot of fun so let's make this year's event even better. The SIUE Trap & Skeet Club will be supporting the Annie Oakley shoot so come out and support these young shooters as we continue our efforts to strengthen youth shooting in our area.

Lent starts on March 8 this year and runs through April 19. We want to start now looking for volunteers to help on these fish fries during Lent. These are big turnout fish fries and all the support we can get is greatly appreciated.

That's all for now. Thank you again for keeping the club strong and moving in the right direction.

Stay safe and keep shooting!!

News & Notes

  • We recognize that some of our members are affected by the ongoing partial federal government shutdown. To help support them in a small way, we would like to offer to defer the renewal date of dues for any of those members by three months past the restart of federal funding. For those members, just come to the clubhouse with your government identification and we will record your information. Thanks for your EGC membership and we have your back!
  • Looking for few good trap workers! E-mail or visit the club if you're interested in one of these fun part-time positions!
