FROM PTRC President Paul Catucci
Wow, the months are passing by fast! It is already 3 months down. It is hard to believe. Your club is still running strong. We did loose a few members due to moving, and non-payment but the national average is 15% we are under 9% and we still have folks joining our great club and will be at capacity soon.
This is my last year and my term is up in December, our Vice President says he will also retire from the board this year. That puts 2 positions available on the Board, have you thought of running? I have had a great time and WE have got a lot accomplished, I consider myself lucky to work with such a great group of volunteers in the last 14 years as President of this great club. PTRC has never been stronger!
What we are working on now is fixing up some items that need attention, the in-door range is almost done, the new carpet for the bar area will be installed in the late spring, we are looking into a new heating system for our skeet clubhouse. Finishing the look of the skeet house, working on the drainage outside of the main clubhouse, New doors on the clubhouse and stairs, and we will vote on a new lighted sign for the building at the next meeting.
Our Education program is the best around and is totally self-sustaining. We will be looking,( in the near future) to invest in simulators to enhance safety for the students as well as instructors. It has been our rule no one profits from the club except the club. We have kept prices as low as possible and offer more because we want more folks that support our rights and enjoy firearms. Check club web site for upcoming classes! May 5th 2019 8-5 NRA certified Range Safety Officer Class, limited space!
Our 10th Anniversary K-9 Motorcycle ride will be June 22, 2019. Our goal this year is to raise $12,000 for the Fulton County Sheriff's Department K-9 unit. We are selling the commemorative pin and stickers now. The pins are just $7 and the stickers are $2 each or 2/$3, the shirts will be out soon for $15. All money raised goes to the event. Peter Tautznik and I have Co-Chaired this since it started. We are both looking to step down after this year. How about YOU, give it try?
