Here is what’s going on Down Range at North Lawrence Fish and Game

Week ending Sunday, May 12th 2024

Retirees meeting: Thursday, May 2nd at 10 am – Only 20 attended.

Officers meeting: Thursday, May 2nd at 6 pm.

Membership meeting: Thursday, May 9 at 7 pm.

The Trap Range will be open Tuesday evenings at 5 pm for practice shooting. Due to rising target cost, prices this season will be $7.00 for members and $7.50 for non-members. You must have your membership card to receive the discount. I have been receiving calls about shooting on Sunday. We need more help to make that possible.

The club office will be closed on Sundays for the foreseeable future. Dues can always be paid by mail. Please get your dues payments in as soon as possible. The gate combination has been changed.

Youth Outdoor Day is just around the corner coming up on June 9th. This is a very big event for the Club and we need all the help we can get. Details will be posted on the website.

There will be a CMP registered military rifle shoot at our range on Saturday, May 25th. Details will be posted on the website. Come out and exercise your 2nd Amendment rights on Memorial Day weekend.

The lake has had its first weed and algae treatment of the season. We are using the same company, AQUA DOC, as last year. They treat about 4 acres around about half of the outside perimeter of the lake. One good thing about all the recent heavy rains is that the lake is at its full capacity. I haven’t had any complaints about the fishing so it must be pretty good. Please observe all the limits posted.

Our next Steel Challenge shoot will be Sunday, May 19th. Details are on the website. Go to the black header at the top of the page, click on USPSA and steel challenge for the full schedule.

Euchre every Friday evening at 7 pm. Plenty of room for more tables and players. Call Joe for details at 330 353 0337.

Mowing: The PTO clutch in our zero-turn mower finally bit the dust. We ordered a new one and it is 5 to 10 days out. We haven’t mowed much grass in over a week. We are getting behind again. The good news is we found a Bobcat Z7000 zero-turn at a nearby auction. It has a 72-inch deck on it and only 242 hours. It is in like-new condition. The Club purchased the mower for $13,688.00. This will give us a reliable machine to maintain our property with.

Attendance at our monthly retirees and membership meetings has been very sparse. Less than one percent of our membership attended. So to hopefully increase our membership involvement at the monthly membership meeting, the Board is considering moving the meeting to early Saturday morning. By doing so, we could open the kitchen for breakfast before the meeting and if there is any interest we could open the trap range after the business meeting. We would appreciate your feedback. Thanks.

Please shoot safely.
