February 2009

A Few Words From the MAC President..

By the time you get this newsletter, indoor season will be more than halfway over. We’ve had a great turnout this year and the competition is really stiff.

Our monthly meeting is on March 6th, plan on attending. There is a lot to be discussed and many items to be voted on, plus a chance to win some extra money (see details below- MS). Thanks to all those who clean up after the shoots and show up early to rotate targets. Also, thanks to Chip Mathias for donating a load of wood to heat the indoor building.

Remember, the VBA State Indoor Tournament is Feb 28th – Mar 1st . Good Luck to all those from MAC who will be competing.

See ya at the Range,

For Your Information..

* Come to the meetings! We are encouraging and rewarding attendance by having a raffle at each meeting. All paid members’ names will be put in a hat… a name will be drawn at each meeting, and if that member is in attendance they will win $20. Each time someone is absent, the pot will be added to and rolled over till the next meeting.

* There is a right of way through the indoor range driveway now, so please be aware of it and use the parking lots at the bottom and top of the hill. Please keep the driveway clear. Thank you!

* Lots of new members, WELCOME to you, and if you have any questions or problems, please feel free to mention it to one of your Club Official in person, email me at, or even better, come to the meetings, first Friday of every month at 6:30pm, indoor building. That’s what the meetings are for! It’s YOUR Club, let your voice be heard…

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