WORK HOURS OPPORTUNITY
DUES - As a reminder, work hours are due to be completed (8 per year) AND correctly documented no later than 30 November. Dieter Bromkamp, the Membership Chair, is collecting work party sheets and other forms of work hours documentation. The chairman responsible for the location of the work completed is accountable to provide the documentation to Dieter. Failure to complete the required eight hours will result in an assessment on the 2018 dues invoice $25 per hour.
INDOOR PISTOL RANGE - Both the Large Bore and the Small Bore Pistol Ranges will be secured 0800-1300 on Sunday, 17 September 2016 for deep cleaning. New members interested in completing work hours should contact Greg Gardella or Matt Marriott to participate. All cleaning materials will be provided. Come in work clothes and any personal protective equipment you believe you may need (gloves, eyewear, etc.).
FALL WORK PARTY - will be conducted on Saturday, September 30 from 8:00 am until complete.
The Work Party Coordinator (yet to be determined - if you would like volunteer please respond to this email) will be in charge of pointing members to where the work needs to be accomplished. Volunteers please be sure to check in AND out with the Work Party Coordinator to document your work hours. Range Chairmen please let the Work Party Coordinator know exactly what work you have to do and the help you will need. Also, when all work on a range is completed please ensure the Work Party Coordinator is informed. Work is complete when all work has ceased and all equipment has been properly put away. The Work Party Coordinator will be the authority to call all work complete and reopen all the ranges.
Everyone on site are reminded to dress for the occasion (i.e.: work pants, shirts, gloves, hats, sunscreen, bug repellent, eye and ear protection).
ALL RANGES ARE SECURED UNTIL ALL WORK AT THE CLUB IS COMPLETED.
The club will be providing lunch to those who work at least a majority of the time - Mike Rinne will be coordinating that effort. Please do not show up to hang out and expect a free lunch.
It looks to be a great day - let's get some good work accomplished. Most importantly - BE SAFE!
VOLUNTEER GUIDANCE FOR STEAK SUPPERS AND OTHER MEAL EVENTS
Members needing work hours are recommended to volunteer to serve, bus tables, and clean up.
Basic guidelines for volunteers:
You’ll be serving food, hygiene is important (please stay away if you are sick).
All the cooking has been arranged, please don’t show up expecting to volunteer to only cook.
Steak suppers serving begins at 7:00 pm sharp, please arrive early (at least 10 minutes, 20 would be better). Help is needed to stage the food for serving. Other meal times are set as published.
Clean up gets done quicker if all the volunteers stay until all the cleaning is completed; usually not later than 9:00 pm.
Eating before you get there is recommended. Although volunteers may be able to get something at the end after all has been cleaned up, it’s not a guarantee.
It’s your responsibility to ensure you sign in and sign out of the work party sheet. The work party sheet is maintained in the kitchen, see Dave Lapointe or Mike Rinne as soon as you arrive and prior to your departure.
Season appropriate attire for serving food is recommended.
This is not an inclusive list. You will probably be given additional guidance upon arriving.
BE SURE TO SIGN IN AND SIGN OUT TO GET CREDIT FOR YOUR WORK HOURS! Ensure all volunteers are documented by name. Print legibly - we have to be able to read your information.
Contact Dave LaPointe or Mike Rinne for further details.

The rain was pouring and there was a big puddle in front of the pub.
A ragged old man was standing there with a rod and hanging a string into the puddle.
A tipsy- looking, curious gentleman came over to him and asked what he was doing.
'Fishing,' the old man said simply.
'Poor old fool,' the gentleman thought and he invited the ragged old man to a drink in the pub.
As he felt he should start some conversation while they were sipping their whisky, the gentleman asked,
'And how many have you caught?'
'You're the eighth one so far,' the old man answered

Tim decided to tie the knot with his long time girlfriend. One evening, after the honeymoon, he was assembling some loads for an upcoming hunt.
His wife was standing there at the bench watching him. After a long period of silence she finally speaks.
"Honey, I've been thinking, now that we are married I think it's time you quit hunting, shooting, hand loading, and fishing. Maybe you should sell your guns and boat."
Tim gets this horrified look on his face.
She says, "Darling, what's wrong?"
"There for a minute you were sounding like my ex-wife."
"Ex wife!", she screams, "I didn't know you were married before!"
"I wasn't. "
My wife was hinting about what she wanted for our upcoming anniversary.
She said, "I want something shiny that goes from 0 to 150 in about 3 seconds."
I bought her a bathroom scale.
And then the fight started......
