I sent letters requesting payment to the 75 members who have yet to pay for the 2016 Gun Raffle tickets. Just to set the record straight; Every member is responsible to sell 5 $10.00 tickets each year. You can sell them or pay for them yourself. This is a condition of membership. Payment is due prior to the raffle.
In the News
As I understand the incident two individuals kill a deer illegally on a farm they didn’t have permission to hunt.
The hell of it is that the posers announced themselves, to the farmer, as LaGrange Hunt club members just before they fled. The conservation officer confiscated the deer to donate the meat.
Rumors spread like wildfire and our club’s integrity suffers among the farmer community. Your board members have the unenviable task of mending relationships.
I know I am preaching to the choir, but please wear your badge when hunting. Only hunt on the farm where you have permission. Ask your host farmer to show you the boundaries where you can hunt. Should your quarry run onto an adjacent farm after being shot you need to get permission to retrieve your animal.
