Ottawa Sportsmen's Club Announcements for September

Fellow Members of the OSC ..... The biggest event of the year for the Ottawa Sportsmen's Club is coming up in two weeks. Our 49th annual Turkey Shoot will be on Sunday, September 26, 2010, beginning at 11:00 a.m. and running to 5:00 p.m. Round up your friends, neighbors and relatives and head them over to the clubhouse and grounds on M-38 to participate in the activities. There will be activities for all ages and good food available all day. New this year are muzzle loaders and a 36 inch fire ring which have been added to the raffles along with the usual shotgun, truckload of wood, and the 2010 quilt made by Sue Dyke. Tickets are $1 each or a book of six for $5. Dime raffles will be going on in the large room of the club house all day long. Support your sportsmen's club by participating and/or volunteering in some way at this year's Turkey Shoot. The money generated is what operates the club for the upcoming year.

There's still need for people to handle various jobs that it takes to make this event a success. Ticket sellers, help in the kitchen, or, help on the various other activities ... ask whoever is chairing the project what you can do to help. Don't wait to be asked, just step up and volunteer ... you will be glad you did! See you all on Sunday, September 26, at the OSC clubhouse and grounds.

Help will also be needed on Saturday before the T.S. to set up beginning about 9 a.m. until it's done. Bring any sponsorships you have gathered at that time.

Below is also a note from John Stenvig, President of the OSC.

Ottawa Sportsman's Club members,

The weekend of August 27, 28 and 29, 2010 saw 63 students successfully complete their Michigan Hunter Safety Program at the OSC range and clubhouse. This year, once again, saw a mother and daughter take the course together. How cool is that! We certified fifteen girls and forty eight boys. Shooting sports continue to attract more and more females as a percent of young hunters. It is great to have them hunting in the field and forest, too, while enjoying the company of family and friends.

The OSC puts on a top notch program with lots of outdoor hands on shooting including archery, muzzle loader rifles, shotgun, and rifle, as well as coursework indoors. The course is free to all students, as the OSC covers all expenses and provides the volunteers needed to put on the program. This year the OSC had twenty volunteers, fifteen of which are certified Michigan Hunter Safety Instructors.

Thanks to all the volunteers, OSC members, and supporters. This is what its all about.

John Stenvig
OSC President
