The Sportsman's Voice vol. 54
Parker County Sportsman Club
President's Welcome
Greetings!

Memorial Day, a day to devote to those citizen soldiers that gave their lives for the freedoms and quality of life we've long taken for granted in our beautiful America, is here again. Our club's location puts you driving right by a monument honoring soldiers who gave their lives...going back to the Civil War. There was a church there that is no longer, but the monument still stands. You might visit there this day or the next time you are heading to the club.

With the current Texas Legislature providing for Texas citizen carry pistol, and Governor Abbot expected to sign into law, we find our own Ron Woods is halting LTC training at our club. Many thanks to Ron for providing us a LTC class for the many years.

Ray, Daniel, Ruben and Chuck are getting QR codes for key points at the club. Look for codes to rulebook, shotgun equipment operation videos and the like will be at various spots soon.

The Parker County Sportsman Swap - ONLINE Swap Meet - board authorized in April - is being utilized to great degree. Simple, secure...click the link and join MeWe and the PCSS group.

The Swap Meet June 12 will likely be PACKED...get your $10 tables reserved by emailing via this LINK: RESERVE YOUR TABLE

Meeting Notes - Secretary Daniel Barnes
May Board Meeting highlights . . .

Larry Baber presented the newly printed Z-fold Club flyer at this month’s meeting for inspection, and all agreed his new design is a hit! We will use these at the Ft. Worth Gun Show Table as handouts to continue to increase Club visibility to the shooting public, and copies are now available in the sign-in shack and in the Clubhouse for members to distribute to friends and prospects. Pick up a handful when visiting the ranges and check them out.

Michael noted that the property insurance for the Club is up for renewal in November and recommended we prepare an inventory of all the property, plant, and equipment that is Club-owned to ensure we have appropriate coverage in case of any loss. Larry, Michael, and Daniel volunteered to serve on the insurance committee to arrange a workday in June/July for members to identify and record pertinent information so proper coverage can be negotiated. Please contact any Board member if you will help, especially if you have any experience with appraisal or valuation services.

We had 34 shooters participate in the May 22 skeet match, and some very high scores were recorded while members had a “bang up” time! Director James Taylor turned in the high score of 49, one short of perfection. Way to go, JT! Continuing with the effort to include more shotgun activities, Ruben has a Trap Match planned for June 26, and the flyer in this month’s newsletter has all the details.

One last reminder that the Swap Meet for this month is June 12, so come out to the Club to buy, sell, or trade some of your good stuff for fun and profit. As always, stay safe . . .

Thanks,

Daniel Barnes, Club Secretary

Rule Book QR >>>>

Lately, I have had the pleasure of shooting on range B and C and have to say the Yellow and Red Flag system works fine for me.
Seems like it is second nature to move the flags when going hot to cold and back...better than the one flag. There is always a flag in place...helps remind one to change it as conditions dictate. I like it.

We Need Your Help
Orientation: a most important function of the club. It takes a dedicated crew to handle the mechanics of the class. We have that crew but we need one more. The concept is to have two crews that cover for each other, likely alternating as a group or individuals covering for one another. The club has provided much to you over the years as a member. The more experienced of you...are in a unique position to serve in this capacity. Please contact us...let's get you involved in a great group of like mined members that do something great for the club. Select the link below to open an email to:
