August 2009
A Few Words From the MAC President..

Outdoor season is winding down and everybody is starting to look towards hunting season. I’m glad to report that Massanutten made a good showing at the VBA 3-D Fall Classic. Charlie Wright is State Champion winning the AMFS Division. MAC had three women take the top three spots in the AFBHFS, Gina Nadzam-State Champion, Karen Williams-2nd and Lindsey Brown-3rd. Also of note, Jeremy Spiker took 2nd in the AMBHFS; Arthur Sommers was 5th, Wade Colton 6th and Jared Williams 11th. Great job guys!

In other news, MAC will be having its 1st Awards Banquet on September 26th at the Indoor Building . Please plan on attending. This banquet, I hope, will grow bigger and better through the years. It will be a Pot Luck Dinner, so please bring a dish and/or dessert if attending and BYOB. The banquet starts at 6:00pm for social hour, dinner at 7:00pm, followed by awards and fun.

The pot for the drawing at the Monthly Meeting is still growing. The latest member drawn was Tim Frenz. Plan to attend the meeting on September 4th, the pot is now $120.00. Another reason to attend the meeting is a chance to voice your opinion on the way the club is run and to participate in the many hunting competitions we have planned (Squirrel Contest, Big Buck and Big Doe Contest).

On a final note, the terms of the executive members are about to expire so anyone interested in running for a position or nominating someone, please plan on attending the next few meetings.
