January 2009

A Few Words From the MAC President..

Well, it’s a new year and a new indoor season. Our Sunday League is almost full with 11 teams, and Thursday League has 9 teams. If you do not have a team and would still like to shoot, show up-- there are always open spots.

A lot of thank you’s go out this month. Aaron Benson for donating insulation and drywall for the heat room addition, Vance Cave and JR Kirby for opening the wall to the addition, and Keith Maddox for donating light tubes and ballists. Gina Nadzam has been running the kitchen on Sundays, and Jeremy Spiker has been running it on Thursday nights. Thanks also to JR Kirby for donating firewood, and Melissa Sisk, Barbara Cave and Heather Kirby for cooking for the money shoot. Dave Robinson has been doing cleanup around the building and building a roof for wood storage. Michele Sommers designed and printed our new membership cards, and Arthur Sommers updated the plaques for the Indoor Leagues. Thanks to everyone for their help, and for supporting your Club…

Also, in closing, I would like to formally welcome our new members and new shooters!

See ya at the Range,


For Your Information..

Still need some help wrapping things up with the heat room addition, see Dave Robinson if you can lend a hand…

Always nice to get help before shoots, rotating and making up targets, show up a little early and help out if you can…
