November and December are the months for nominations for positions which are ending.  We have five board member openings, one sergeant at arms position, and the assistant treasurer position.  Please check the website to see more information regarding this.  Any member interested in running for a position must be a member in good standing for at least six months.  Nominations should be sent via the form that will be available. ­­ The election will be held in January.  Click here for the nomination form to print and fill out, please return to by mail to the club.

We aren’t planning on a gun raffle for February, but hopefully later in the Spring.  We are, however, planning a Cash Giveaway Raffle.  The tickets go on sale on December 1st at $20 each.  There are only 1500 tickets printed.  If all 1500 tickets are sold, we will be giving away $15,000.  There are 11 cash prizes to be won. A copy of the ticket and prize structure is on the website.  If you are interested in tickets (which make great stocking stuffers), leave a message on the club phone (716-649-8202) and we will make arrangements to get those tickets to you asap.  The actual drawing will be held on Saturday, May 22nd at 4 p.m. at the Club and also Facebook Live.

We still can’t open the club for meetings.  Someday, hopefully soon, the Governor will allow us to be open to enough members to make a quorum.  We can only hope it happens soon!  The Board of Directors is meeting and keeping things rolling along with plans for our various activities.

Since we cannot currently have general membership meetings with food, drink, and raffles, and we still have monthly expenses, the funds are getting tight.  We will start to sell our annual Membership and Derby entries for next year on December 1st online and we will schedule dates/times for you to come to the club to join.  Joining early is a win/win situation.  It will give us funds to work with through these hard times, but it also gets you in on the early bird drawings.  The sooner you join, the more benefits you have available to you.

If any of you have suggestions for fundraising, we would love to hear them.  Feel free to call me directly with your ideas (716-435-9932). 

On behalf of all the Officers and Directors, please stay safe and healthy and have a wonderful holiday season! 

Sue
