January 2006 Newsletter

Match Report

There wasn't one! Not for lack of trying, though. Match setup was in progress as the rain arrived. Several stalwarts came out with high hopes, but it wasn't to be. Several decided a day at the Ventura Gun Show was a better choice and headed west. As to be expected, by 10am it was sunny and blue at the beach, but too late. We'll try again in February.

February Rimfire Match

Rimfire steel will be offered again on February 4. Our standard format with 3 stages of pistol/revolver, then repeat with an extra plate using rifle. Juniors pay only $5 so bring the youngsters. Newbies are $10 as usual. Regulars $15. A really good time and lots of fun.

February Match

Kevin and Ron will give this one another try with the Australian Postal. We also postponed the 2005 Stage Contributor award drawing. Each stage submitted, set up and torn down earns a token in the pot. This year, $100 to the first drawn, $50 to the second, no duplicate winners.

2006 Officers

Every year at this time we make an impassioned plea for members to step forward and throw the existing board out of office. If any among you want the opportunity to influence the direction of the club and its activities, please come to the January match and toss your hat in the ring. Nominations are open until the February match, at which time we will have a show of hands and elect our 2006 Board.

2006 Membership

Membership fees for 2006 are under review after a considerable amount of whining and complaining about a possible significant increase. We have sharpened our pencils and will come up with a final number at the February match where we will take annual membership applications.
