October is a big month with PCSC and PC 4H partnering to make two major events occur. A major fundraiser for 4H, Bust'n Pumpkins, on the 14th and 4H providing a dinner for us before the Election Oct 19th. Before that, on the first Saturday is a major Swap Meet at our Events Building. 

We can't stress how much we'd appreciate your support of these events, so mark you calendars,  enjoy the fun and accomplishment the events provide.

You know that "diamonds in the rough" are found at PCSC Swap Meet !  I've never been to one that didn't benefit.  Even if it is just for the lunch by Dee's Treats and the camaraderie, the Swap Meet is hard to beat.

Just when you thought there was only one event on the second Saturday, the 14th, think again. AT 7:30 AM registration begins for the continuing revival of Pistol Matches at PCSC. We have a member with a golden curriculum vitae, a fun and caring personality who is the match director - where the match is for fun AND learning !  Yes, Fred Muller is enthusiastic and dedicated to helping improve participant skills in pistol safety and performance.

Last in the month, but not least, is the David Reuter Memorial Rifle Match and scholarship fundraiser raffle.  You can read more about all in this newsletter and at www.parkersportsman.com.
We all know the club has become a great gun range, but with events like occurring in October, it is a place and time, NOT TO BE MISSED !

As always, thank you for being a member and...


Enjoy the range - be safe !

 September Meeting Notes - Secretary 

The meeting started on time with Keith Eberly presiding. A quorum was present. The main thrust of this September meeting is getting ready for October Events, particularly the Officer and Director Election and the Membership Renewal and Election Notification Mailing. There were no nominees from the floor and the board authorized an official ballot. The list of nominees and their resume' will be included in the renewal document package to be mailed out on or about Monday October 2nd. Resumes are being published via US Mail hard copy to respect nominee privacy. The election is incorporated in the October board meeting and will be held early in the meeting to respect the many members valuable time. Bring your membership badge with you to receive a ballot. We want to support the 4H club with donations as they are providing a light dinner for us about 6 PM prior to the meeting as was done last year.
All events are ready to go.
There will be a Envelope Stuffing Part on Saturday the 30th starting at 10 AM. We hope to be done by 2 with a lunch provided. We hope all members receive their LARGE ENVELOPE during the first week of October.


Facility Notes
By Jon Kitts: Please help by not putting oversized targets, targets too close to edge and therefore shooting up the wooden part of the target frames. Membership fees can go up to accommodate the excessive repair in labor and materials that come from not caring for the target frames. Read More click here.

By: Byron Miller 
We encourage all members attend a shotgun orientation, get qualified to operate the throwers and enjoy our trap and skeet facilities.
These machines sometimes break or need adjusting. I am asking for your help to keep them running properly.
IF THE THROWERS NEED SERVICE PLEASE CALL OR TEXT:
Byron Miller 817-304-9904
Henry Harwood 817-229-8625

Did I forget something? Probably, with so much going on.
 
Wow, PCSC is more than just a gun range.  With what all that's going on in October, just this one month is enough to make you proud to be a member of the best little secret in the country - for enjoying the 2nd Amendment.
 
And more...consider the fine members we have and the good time you've had just shooting the breeze !
 
This past Sunday left me with a great feeling - having my wife out to shoot with us and she got to visit with new friends at the range.
 
And, your Vice President, Ryan Donnell has been getting things done in a big way to get an Archery Range to the West of Range A, just behind the Guard Shack. Thanks to Ryan and I don't know who all just yet that is making this happen. More as this progresses.

It is easy to forget that all these events, all of them, require dedication and work. Time spent, enjoyable time, putting something together for the benefit and learning it provides members. There is a long list of folks at PCSC that spend countless hours making it all happen. For this, we say a big "Thank YOU" !
 
So, come enjoy your club and support the fundraisers that you choose with as little or as much as you desire.
 
Members, regardless of attending events, you are appreciated by the Board of Directors and Administrators - for making our club a safe and enjoyable place to be.
