What a month!

Wow...it has been quite a month. While typically club activities slow down a little during the hot-weather mid-summer months, this has been a hopping July. We'd like to give you a quick run-down on what's going on.

FISH FRIES GOING STRONG!

We have an unbelievably strong customer base for our fish fries (second and fourth Friday of each month for the members who have not come out to enjoy or support), but thanks to the great efforts of Officer and Board Secretary Lyndsay Cardinal, we had a great turn-out of volunteers who delivered awesome service and product to those customers this past Friday. If you haven't joined us for one, please do so as a customer or a volunteer. They are fun and very important to the club.

SWEATING IT OUT ON THE RIFLE/PISTOL RANGE!

We have been working on improving the drainage situation on the rifle/pistol range for some time, but thanks to the leadership of Vice President Mike Loehr and project lead Ron Williams, along with a group of about 10 other hard-working members in extremely hot weather, we made a big improvement last weekend. In fact, it got a good test Saturday afternoon when big storms came through, and the new work performed excellently. Thanks to all who contributed! EGC clubhouse

5-STAND ON THE MOVE!

As we've reported before, we are introducing a whole new type of shooting at EGC. 5-Stand shooting is a form of sporting clays shotgun shooting in a more compact space. Thanks to the great leadership of Director Dale Steinmetz, we have architectural drawings in hand, and with a few minor modifications, we will be ready to submit to the county for approval. While a lot of things can change, we are looking to have our new range open for shooting sometime in the fall.

INVESTING OUR MEMBERS MONEY

Director Rich Renner has tee'd up a great system to take a long-range view of improvements to our club and prioritize where we should make investments. We view any expenditure of club money as an expenditure of your money, so we take this very seriously. Our new focus will ensure we are investing that money in the right things at the right time. We appreciate his leadership on this.

We'll close on that as we take a break to catch our breath. Please enjoy your club, be involved in your club and contribute to your club. We are 1,100 members strong, and with everyone's contribution, there is almost nothing we can't achieve.
