2019 Handicap League Changes

Team Score Sheets

Starting this year, all team shooting score sheets must be turned into the front desk. To help with efficiency prior to submission, please count your tickets to verify all shooters are accounted for and paid. We would also like to move away from cash being submitted with the score sheets, so please help us out by purchasing shooting tickets prior to shooting. Books and individual tickets are available for sale at the front desk.

Shoot Ahead and Bank Score Cards

If you are going to be shooting ahead for a different week, or shooting a bank score, a shoot ahead or bank score card is required to be completed PRIOR to shooting. Additionally, if shooting with a team, the team score sheet is also required to be filled out correctly indicating what team and week your score is being used for; this information will also match the shoot ahead card.

The card will be given to the trap score keeper prior to you shooting. Once shooting is complete, the score keeper will mark the score on the card and the card will then be turned in by the score keeper, not the shooter. If you are shooting ahead on a squad and you have not properly indicated that your score is designated as a shoot ahead, it will not be valid and not included as a score for the league.

We’ve had complaints in the past about teams not recording shoot aheads properly or timely. It is your responsibility to property document your shoot aheads. If you’re shooting ahead, the score sheet and shoot ahead card need to be completed and submitted to the score keeper prior to shooting — NO EXCEPTIONS!!!

There are three weeks of open shooting left before the start of the Handicap Leagues. Now is the time to come out and get a few practice rounds in and log bank scores for your teams.

Memberships are on sale and can be purchased at the club house during these nights. Prices are the same for 2019: $25 for Individual, $35 for Family, $5 for Youth under 18. Check with Heather at the Trap Desk for more information.

You can also purchase books of trap tickets right now. A book of 10 tickets will be $42.50, $25 for youth tickets, and can be purchased at the Trap Desk. Please try to get tickets for league shooting this year. We want to move away from dealing with cash in regards to the league team sheets. You will still be able to purchase single tickets throughout the year as well if you wish.

Shells and loading supplies will also be for sale in the Trap room. Stop in now and load up for the season.

2018 ANNUAL MEETING

Our Annual Club Meeting is scheduled on the second Monday of December every year. This year it was held on December 10th. Highlights of this year’s meeting include:

      Financials – Primary revenues were down about 6.0% when compared to last year. This was largely due to less loading supplies being sold as more people are purchasing box shells, less membership revenue due to the pistol/rifle range temporary closure, and less total rounds of trap shot due to a colder start to the year and one less ATA shoot.

Primary expenses were controlled with overall expenses down about 9.0% when compared to last year. This decrease was largely attributable to less repairs & maintenance expense, mainly due to the new storage shed built last years, less loading supplies being purchased as we are holding higher shell inventory, and less wages paid due to the lower volume of trap rounds. The lower expenses were offset by the purchase of a skid steer for $48,000.

Net income through 11/30/18 was negative at just over <$54,000> with the skid steer purchase making up the bulk of the loss. The loss was supported with cash balances which remain healthy at $125,000 at 11/30/18. We currently have no debt.

      Election of the Board of Directors – This year we had three Board Members terms come due:  Jason Berry, Ron Harper, and Ron Bowers. Ron Harper did not seek re-election of another term. Following nominations from the floor we had three people running for three spots on the Board –  Jason Berry, Ron Bowers, and Derek Prock were all elected for three-year terms.

We would like to thank Ron Harper for his 42+ years of service at the Eau Claire Rod and Gun Club. His dedication and commitment will be missed on the board. We also would like to thank Derek Prock for his interest in volunteering and we welcome him to his new director role!!!

Officer Position Votes – officer positons will be voted on at the January 14th  board meeting.

Big Game Contest – Winners of this year’s contests and $25 each were:

Deer Gun – Rick Davis 
Deer Gun (Youth) – no entry
Grouse Tail – Fred Krause
Deer Bow – Aaron Anderson      
Turkey Beard – Dave Linderholm             
Pheasant Tail – Doug Becker            

Eau Claire Rod & Gun Club Foundation, Inc. – Treasurer Tamy Moss presented their financial statement through 12/8/2018. The Foundation awarded $5,500 in college scholarships in 2018. They also raised $2,600 during the year through their annual steak night event, foundation lunches, handicap league hotdog/brat nights, and memorial donations.
