Once again, the club had a table at the Acton Fair, many thanks to those who manned the table, and sold tickets. The talking fish was a hit again this year.
A couple of members recently spent some time cleaning the range. Please remember to take out anything you bring in. Be respectful of other members, and help keep the club clean.

Club Work Day – A Great Start!
Saturday 5/16 was the 2015 Club Work Day and the eleven members & guests did a nice job sprucing up the club grounds.
Chain Saws, Rakes, Ladders & Leaf Blowers were the weapons of choice for the day. The work crew raked and removed debris from the picnic area and clubhouse area and cut down dead trees and branches. Branches, Picnic Tables and Tree Trimmings were removed. Trees were trimmed at the firing range to continue the clean up that Romeo had done last week. Gayle Polianites filled in some of the mud season ruts in the driveway that we’ve been busting our ankles on. Lou P. got the water turned on for the year. We have a sizeable wood deposit in the fireplace area that promises to be one heck of a bonfire (if we can ever get the burn permits).
Many thanks to the workers that made this day a success: Romeo & Sandra Fortin, Lou and Gayle Polianites, Bill Surette, Kevin Mohan, Jonathon Kerns, Leesa Joiner, Rick West, Clinton Staples and Neil Wright. The club grounds are standing tall.
If you missed the work day and still need to address your six hour volunteer time – please contact Neil Wright at firstname.lastname@example.org or Lou P. at email@example.com We still have chores that need to be addressed. See you at the next club meeting!
Map and Compass Course:
On Saturday April 18th, 2 members and 7 guests participated in Map & Compass Training conducted by David Duguay at the NYCRGC clubhouse on Lewis Hill Rd, West Newfield. Components of the course included: parts of the compass, Magnetic North/True North/Declination, How to use a compass (and only a compass) to enter and leave the woods, topographic map symbols and use &using the map and compass together. David provided hands on exercises to practice new skills learned. As an added bonus, as students arrived at the parking lot, David demonstrated how to locate True North using just a stick, the sun and a little patience. Students ranged in age from 10 to 60, and everyone had a good time and learned a lot. THANK YOU DAVID!
