48th Annual Meeting (Election of Directors)
&
Club Championship Shoot


Note From the President – Leonard Wehking

Welcome shooters to our annual membership shoot! Come and enjoy the fun competition and the good food. We hope you have noticed the gradual improvements to the club. The skeet range looks fantastic and we have acquired a remote (cordless) skeet controller and hope to eventually have one on every skeet range. They save a lot of wear and tear on dragging a big chord around. We are also starting to host some official registered skeet shoots.

Soon you will notice some trap pads work (when the weather cools off). We acquired some grant monies for this improvement. It’ll mostly be re-tarring and sealing some of the cracks. We also turn over a couple of trap houses roofs that were beginning to sag. Hopefully they’ll last a while longer.

We continue to apply for grant dollars to improve the shooting range. As mentioned in an earlier letter, we can only use grant dollars on the shooting portion of the club (i.e., north of the sidewalk). Clubhouse facilities and parking lot improvements have to be done using club monies. We are getting some cost estimates for some various projects such as upgrading the RV area and other 5 year improvement plans. We’d love input on things that you think would be nice, such as AZ in the clubhouse or an actual gas furnace. There is a suggestion box on the front counter, or email us using our website contact form to submit your ideas.

Currently we are doing well in our bank account and will still be doing quite well after we order our next load of targets which runs about $15,000. My goal is to have at least $20,000 in reserve for our projects and buffer most of the time. We will have that much easily after the next target load is paid.

We have several more registered shoots coming up, along with some corporate shoots and the annual turkey shoots…. Ca-Ching Ca-Ching!!!

On another note, to encourage membership we have decided to allow members to buy bulk items (Shells by the Case, and reloading supplies) at our cost plus sales tax. Non-members will continue paying marked up prices. Just another incentive to be a member!

Last notes, we value volunteer help and continue to encourage others to participate. It doesn’t take much time, but it seems like it’s always the same ones helping out so others can shoot. Remember, if it wasn’t for the volunteers, you nor I would have Boise Gun Club to recreate at or enjoy. Please make it know if you have time to help or a desire to be on the Board of Directors.

See you at the club, Leonard Wehking.
