May Announcements

OSC Members: Iím a little early getting this email out but have to go downstate to a funeral and want to remind you about these events.

Youth Pistol Team Spaghetti Supper:

Spaghetti Supper for the Youth Pistol Team which will be Saturday, May 11, 4 to 7 P.M. Prices are adults $8; 65+ seniors $7; and kids under 12 $5. This is a great opportunity to take the whole out for Motherís Day. Members are asked to bring a dessert for the OSC dessert table that always magically appears and then disappears. Contact Bob Gardner 338-2834 or rgardner@up.net if you have questions.

The second item of business is that the two winners of the 'Members Only' raffle for two Springfield Armory 1911 Mil Spec pistols will be drawn at the close of the dinner on May 11. You need not be present to win, but wouldnít you love to take one of the pistols home with you or back on the range to do some target shooting!! If you would like more tickets simply go on our webpage www.ottawasportsmen.org and print as many as you would like to and send along with your check to OSC Membership Secretary, 32185 Emily Lake Road, Toivola, MI 49965 or take them to the clubhouse.

Lawn Care:

From Ken Snyder, OSC President: Ottawa Sportsmenís Club needs volunteer club members to do lawn care at the club grounds on M-38. Equipment and fuel will be furnished. You may use your own mower if you prefer. Each time mowing needs to be done it takes approximately 8-10 hours. Several volunteers could get it all done in a couple hours by coordinating their efforts. Respond to the board of directors no later than Monday, May 13, 2013, via email to ottawa_sportsmens_club@yahoo.com The mowing season is fast approaching so after May 13, the lawn care job will be put up for bid.

Press Releases:

The OSC is considering sending press releases from the DNR and UPSA (Upper Michigan Sportsmenís Alliance) to those members wishing to be kept informed through email of current activities as well as legislative bills being considered. These emails will not be sent to the general mailing list but will only be sent to those members who reply to oscsecretary@yahoo.com

Concealed Carry Pistol class will be offered June 15 & 16 at the OSC grounds. Class is limited. You must be pre-registered. Contact Jeff Stroud for details 906-370-8288, or email ottawaccw@att.net
