This past year has been good for the Club, we currently have 549 paid up members. This fluctuates because of new members and the loss of members who are more than sixty days in arrears with their annual dues. We now send a reminder, to those with an email address, in the month prior to their due date. Unfortunately, we simply cannot devote the time and expense of a reminder to those without an email address.

The annual Voters Meeting will be held Monday, Feb 13th at 7:30. On the agenda is a change to Article II (a), of the Club By-Laws, to include marijuana in the items prohibited at the Club.  Also, three Directors have reached the end of their term; two have agreed to serve another three years. There will be an opening on the Board of Directors, anyone wishing to serve the Club in this capacity should contact the Club President for information. Ballots will be mailed to all Voting Members in mid-January.  

As you know, the Club supports the trap and skeet shooting programs of local organizations. We have nine High Schools, Pettis County 4-H, and State Fair Community College (SFCC), shooting regularly at the Club. In the past year, 833 shooters participated in various events

The International Defensive Pistol Association (IDPA) conducts matches monthly on the third Sunday. Last year there was an average of 11 shooters per event. These use the 25-and 50-yard ranges. Set-up normally starts at noon, anyone using the ranges on those day should be prepared to give up those ranges.

Our Thanksgiving and Christmas dinners were enjoyed by the few who attended. A special thanks to Jim and Darlene Hayes for entertaining the group at the Christmas event. The poor attendance, however, is not worth the preparation time and effort of those who prepared the turkeys and hams and cleaned up the Club afterwards. Consequently, the Board of Directors is considering discontinuing these events.

Participation, in the ATA registered shoots, was such that the Club has decided to not schedule any for 2023.

Increased costs of soda will be reflected at the soda machine in the Club house.
