Message from the President

September 18, 2017

To my fellow EGC Members,

I start this newsletter like I do most others thanking the volunteers that support the club and keep it up and running. Without your efforts and contributions, we don''t open or succeed.

So far this month, the club has started with a great Shriners Shoot, High School Fall League kick-off, a super fish fry, Thursday Night Fall League (23 teams) and weekly pistol target shooting at the range on Saturdays at 10 a.m. We ended the Thursday night Summer League crowning the Bassett Hounds as Summer League Champions. Congratulations guys!!

We also have a lot going on with some upcoming events and projects as usual. We have our final registered shoot of the season on September 23 and we have another fish fry coming on September 22. We have also set the date for our annual Tom and Jerry Fun Shoot and Raffle, which will be December 17. This year it won't interfere with hunting season, so we expect a big turnout. We have already purchased the guns for this event, which you don't have to be present to win. Those that come on the 17th of December will have extra opportunities for great live raffles that you can only win if you are at the club. EGC clubhouse

The trap field light project will be underway here shortly since the lights have arrived. We can't wait to show off the best lighting for our trap fields and I am sure you will all be proud of what has been installed. The club has also awarded a contract to address the excess drainage and silting into the south lake and will stop that process to preserved or favorite fishing grounds. We will also be looking into a new stocking of the lake with fish.

We are holding an NRA certified Range Safety Officer (RSO) class at the club September 30-October 1. There is still time to sign up for the course. This is a course designed for members to get an NRA certification and work at the EGC range as a volunteer. So if you have a desire to RSO at our range, this is your opportunity. The sign-up sheet is inside the club on the display counter. We also still have raffle tickets available on the Tristar V2 12 gauge semi-automatic shotgun. Those can be purchased at the shoot counter inside the club house.

Thanks to everyone for your contributions to our club and let's continue to make this the Best Gun Club ever!!

Stay safe and keep shooting.

Phil Melcher, President
