The Sportsman's Voice vol. 73

President's Welcome

Hello Chuck,

Happy Holidays Everyone

As the year draws to an end I reflect on

all of the improvements our dedicated volunteers have accomplished this year.

Range A received new benches. A new Archery Range was added. An electronic New Member process rolled out. The New Member Orientation classes have been revised. The Swap Meets and Matches have had good attendance. The safety committee worked tirelessly on the rule book. All in all I say it’s been a good year for PCSC.

Looking forward to 2023, we are by no means finished. A major project we already have on the schedule is the refacing of the berms and parking lot repair. The berm issue has plagued us for quite some time, so I am happy to see us get moving on a solution. In the past we have rented earth moving equipment and did it ourselves thanks to volunteer equipment operators. We are taking a different strategy this time a contractor will begin around January 17th by removing the led saturated surfaces of ranges A,B,C, and F then replace with fresh dirt from the back of the property.

We believe this will cure a list of problems the club has experienced. Unfortunately the safest and most efficient way will require that we completely close for the three possibly four days needed to complete the work. So please be patient and plan accordingly and let’s go into 2023 with a fresh set of berms along with some sprucing up of the parking areas.

And as always, we from the board thank you !

Enjoy PCSC,

Ryan Donnell

PCSC President

Meeting Notes - Swearing In New Leadership

Short meeting notes this month as we had normal business, but considerable time was spent on two members having serious rule and or behavior violations. An executive session to settle decision on expulsion or education commenced mid meeting.

The board allowed Jan 17 - Jan 20 to allow for TOTAL RANGE CLOSURE to allow for major restructuring of the berms and parking lot. Mark your calendars as the gates will be locked and no shooting allowed for safety of those working for us to improve our facility.

Also we had our new officers and directors take the oath of office.

They are Ryan Donnell, pres, Keith Eberly VP absent, Daniel Barnes Sect, Phillip Mason dir, Michael Hogue Treas, Chase Gardner dir, Richard Cookus dir, George Admire dir.

No rifle match in December nor January.

Closing Copy

I noticed a news article concerning carry of weapons and large number of convictions of illegally carrying. Might be worth a read, keeping up with the current laws could save us of a big problem.
