• Al picked up the Bob Evans Memorial plaque; VERY nice.

• The Spring Turkey Contest is a go, contact Al for applications if you don’t receive one with the newsletter. The application deadline is APRIL 20th, NO EXCEPTIONS! $10 per bird entry, same as last year.

NEW BUSINESS

• Something new – The Club will purchase a Mossberg 12 gauge shotgun. For a special Members Only drawing at our Christmas Banquet. Adult members will be given a ticket towards the gun at each meeting they attend. They will also receive a ticket for each sponsored event they attend or participate in, excluding Banquets. If you do not get a ticket then shame on you!

• The MAY MEETING will be held at the French Fort in Liverpool at 5:30 p.m., we need a good turnout because they are making a big event of this for us, possibly making the news. The French Fort asked if we can display our mounts with them, we voted and agreed it will be good for everyone if we do. It’s better for the mounts to be seen everyday as opposed to 6-10 days when we do our shows. We’re also making plaques to promote the club.

• Advanced Strategies had their yearly Banquet that Al and Gary attended and displayed their mounts. They thanked us for our support and had a nice slide show of their yearly outings.

• Advanced Strategies will hold a Carp Derby on June 11th, 9 a.m. – 4 p.m. in Baldwinsville, we’ve been invited to attend and asked to help. I’m bringing a rod and bait and my nephews. It will be $15 a person to enter.

• NRA is having their Banquet in June, we voted to sponsor a $150 item; the club will be buying 2 tables on a first come first serve basis. Contact Al for details.

• Al was reimbursed for postage and 2 locks for the club.

• Harvey won the door prize trap.
