Meeting Notes - Secretary Daniel Barnes
November Board Meeting Highlights . . .
The BIG news from the November meeting is the inaugural PCSC Annual Fishing Contest. This is in support of all the anglers who are members, since the boat ramp launch agreements previously held by the Club have expired. James Taylor announced the contest will extend from January 1 through August 31, 2022. Categories will be for the heaviest Large Mouth Bass, Catfish, Crappie, and any Legal Fish by bow. Winners of the four classes will each receive a free full ride membership for 2023 and bragging rights for a year! Get your poles and bait ready, and don’t forget a camera to record your entries. See the flyer in this newsletter for more details, or contact JT to volunteer for the Fishing Committee at pcscfishing@gmail.com.
The January New Member Orientation, which would normally be held the first Saturday, has been rescheduled to avoid conflict with New Years Day activities. It will now take place January 8, starting with Registration at 8 am. Be sure to update your calendar.
Keith called for volunteers to staff the Club recruiting table at the Fort Worth Gun Show coming up January 1-2. He will have new flags for attention-getting and needs several members to assist with on-site sign-up for prospective new members and to answer questions and provide information about all the activities members can enjoy. Contact Keith to schedule morning or afternoon participation on either Saturday or Sunday. What better way to celebrate the start of the New Year than being in a huge building full of guns, ammo, and shooting gear!

Stay Safe,

Daniel
Rifle Match
Service rifle match schedule development for 2022 is in progress.
Look for a special SRM mailing or info in the January Sportsman's Voice.
Pistol Match Information
Well, we did tic-tac-toe for November, with each shooter rolling the Texas size dice for number of rounds per magazine. It wasn't as easy as it might sound due to the reduced size scoring zones. Theme for one of the December stages - "things in hands" - 1. flashlight, 2. a child being clutched in a rescue situation (teddy bear), 3. a frozen water bottle (simulated holding an ice cold beer), and 4. a filled-to-the-rim Whataburger cup (spilling is anti-Texan) - in the non-dominant hand while the dominant hand is busy fending off threats. Of course we'll still do some of the standard stuff to exercise those draw and shoot skills.


Thanks,

Jim Groce

Safety Briefing
We need your Help!
Most years the Club will have two safety violations. This year, the Club has had 12 Rule Violations in the first six months. Most involve tactical shooting, move and shoot, shooting in front of the bench on Ranges B & C, shooting steel plates on Range A, using homemade target holders that are made of steel on the bottom and are the wrong height for our ranges, and shooting 1½ hours before sunrise.

READ THE RULE BOOK ONLINE.
 
If any of our members see this type of behavior, please get all the information you can on the violators and send it to the Club; it will get to me. Your name will not be used. If you are uncomfortable personally correcting any violation, take a photo of their vehicle with the license plate visible. If you are one of the rule violators you need to go to another gun range. We are not a tactical range.
 
When we catch you, and we will, you will dismissed and banned from the Club.
 
Phillip Mason
Director & Chairman of the Safety Committee
