September 2019  Presidents Letter


President’s Message

September 2019

 Hunting seasons are upon us already. Seems like only a few weeks ago that I cleaned all my ‘stuff’ and put it away. Now I’ve got several shotguns that need cleaning. I thought the dove shooting on opening day was a little sparse this year. Perhaps that little rain event that went through a couple of days before moved some of them out. Regardless, I enjoyed my time with good friends and good food.

Another reason my shotguns are dirty is the Sporting Clay fundraiser that the Chapter sponsored in August. We had a great time and enjoyed the fellowship of fellow hunters and shooters. More and more hunters are taking up this fairly new sport. Many of them are pretty good shots but all have the passion to learn to shoot better and Sporting Clays is the game that will allow you to practice, practice, practice. I need to thank several Chapter members that worked very hard to make our Sporting Clays fundraiser the success that it was. Ed Garret is the master mind and the shoot would never happen without his tireless work. Joel Castelo and Maddux Hobbs (Black Betty) fed us well. In no particular order, Jaylene Wenner, Commissioner Robert Corn, Hud Rhea, Diana Garret, Phil Kloppenberg, Dustin Davenport, Kim Talbot, Charlie Thompson, Gary Hebert and the ECSRA “crew” (Danny Denson, Jerry Rackley, Bill Rogers) and several others were noted setting targets, helping with registration, working the gun boards and silent auction, supplying the bottled water on the course, and taking care the myriad of tasks associated with an endeavor of this size. I’m sure I left somebody out but know that I appreciated the help and hope you had as much fun as I did.

September 26th5:30 PM is our next Board Meeting to be   followed by our General Membership meeting at the Roswell Country Club. At  the Board meeting we’ll discuss the financials from our Sporting Clay event and hear a proposal from the Lincoln Co 4-H Shotgun Team on building a practice field that they can use in preparation for 4-H shooting events, YHEC, and SCTP events that they are involved in. This month’s program for the General Membership is a report by Robert Corn, Michael Moore, Brandon Arnold, Joel Castelo, Colt Gipson and yours truly on a recent trip they took to South Africa. Expect pictures on MANY trophies and great camaraderie as they share their experiences.

 As I write this I’m reflecting that today is Sep 11th 18 long years have passed since this senseless attack on US soil and the perpetrators remain committed to their cause. And now we’ve got  the homegrown idiots that massacre innocents at Wal-Mart, schools, and movie theatres “just because”. Please take a moment in your busy life to remind our legislators that there are plenty of laws on the books to prevent homegrown murderers and foreign terrorists from committing these acts. Perhaps a more robust application of existing law is called for. And, please pray for the victims, the police, and our leaders as they try to restore normalcy in the face of stupidity.
