2014 newsletter

Greetings fellow club members. Yet another successful year has come and gone for the club. I would like to thank last year’s Board of Director’s, Committee Chairs, and the members that volunteered at different events for their hard work in keeping the club running.

The club held many successful events for youth and adults in 2013. Events included the “Intro to the Outdoors” program for the Lewiston Parks & Recreation, our 11th year in sponsoring a Kicking Bear 1 on 1 camp, three Sporting Clay shoots, three 3D Archery shoots, weekly trap shooting , a traditional Firearms Safety Training class, and 2 internet Firearms Safety Training classes.

A long term (20 year) lease has been drafted and a “footprint“ of a new building has been reviewed. We hope to break ground on this project in the summer of 2014! We would like to thank the Wachholz family for their continued support of the Lewiston Sportsmen’s Club.

Anyone willing to volunteer at Sportmen’s Club event’s is encouraged to contact myself or any committee chairperson for more information. The rifle range and Wednesday night summertime trap shooting are area’s that we will need help with in 2014. Trevor Rislow has been dedicated to trap for many years, he will work with anyone willing to learn how to operate the trap throwers and move into the chairman position.

The general membership voted in Jan. to add an attendance incentive to our monthly meetings. “In trying to promote more members to attend monthly meetings we are going to implement an attendance program. Starting in 2014 names of all members attending the monthly meeting will be recorded by the secretary.
There will be a drawing held at the December meeting and the name that is drawn twice will be awarded a firearm (yet to be purchased) of a value up to $400.00″.
We did have a few new faces at the Dec. and Jan. meeting’s, we hope to see you at an upcoming meeting as well.

Be sure to include your e-mail address when returning membership forms. Mark Reisetter has been very good at keeping Club members informed on local current event’s and will continue to keep you up to date on Club happening’s.

In closing please feel free to contact me with any ideas or concerns for or about the club that you might have. We hope you have a safe and happy 2014.
