OSC Plans Buck Booyaw

Ottawa Sportsmen's Club will meet on Monday, Dec. 4, 2000, at 7:30 p.m. to elect officers and fill the chairs of board of director members whose tenure is up.

Any club member in continuous good standing for at least one year may have his name placed in nomination by calling Past President Harold Mitchell or by being nominated from the floor. Members are encouraged to attend to nominate and elect those who will lead and direct their Organization for the coming year.

Members are also reminded of the Big Buck Booyaw to be held Saturday, Dec. 2. Mike Mickus and crew are cooking up a fabulous feast which will be served promptly at 7 p.m. The club doors will open at 2 p.m. with professional scorers on hand to measure any racks, new and old.

If convenient, it would be preferable for racks to be brought in for measurement early in the day to allow scorers to complete their task and enjoy the evening hours. Dinner reservations for members and invited guests are being accepted through Thursday evening by Ron Haka at 353-6383 or Carole Williams at 338-2507 or by signing up at the club. The Booyaw Committee is planning to make this an evening of good food and fun for all who attend.

The Sight-In Days Committee reports an excellent turn out. Many compliments were received on the range improvements, especially the shooting station shelters. They were very much appreciated during the rain and snowy days. More range improvements are planned through the donations received, in particular more cement ground work and handicap facilities for shooters. The Committee especially wants to thank the Range Masters who braved the nasty weather each day to advise and help shooters. And many thanks are given to the ladies who donated food and kitchen help so that there were more happy bellys than belly achers.

Sight-In Days winners were Pat Rehak, a new camp owner in the Silver River Reserve. Pat, who won a coveted limited edition print donated by McCabe Distributing, has also become a member of the OSC. Second prize, a hunting knife donated by Carl Patterson, was taken by Dave Mercier who hunted out ofWayne and Sylvia Heikkinen's camp. Third prize of a compass donated by the OSC went to club member Tom Clisch of Alston.

Membership Secretary Mike Williams is accepting 2001 dues Club members are advised that the membership voted for a dues increase at their November meeting to $25 a year. Dues may be payable to the OSC. and mailed to Mike at PO Box 61, Pelkie, 49958 or dropped off at the club.

As always, OSC meetings are open to the public and new mem- bers are welcome.
