Greetings members,

We had a great turnout today for the St. Nick Shoot. Despite the cold weather we had about 30 members show up to shoot. Sue Trindle won the women's trophy with a 39. Jason Klingele, John Klingele, and Rick White all tied for the men's with a 47. After the shoot off Jason went home with the trophy.


As a reminder, the club will be closed next Sunday for Christmas. We will be open on January 1st and that will be the first week of the button shoot. Don't forget to pay your dues.


Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas and we will see you in the new year!
