FROM PTRC President Paul Catucci
We just got out of the hottest days this year, hope you all kept cool. What is going on at the club…..let me tell you, still running strong. We have been doing some repair work on the skeet building, front and back porches, work is starting soon on the front porch at the clubhouse, we need some work on the back steps and the back door. There some trees that need to be taken down as well as work on the shed near the range shack. The club is in great shape but there is always work to do. Thank you all who work so hard for all of us, we do appreciate you!
Last week we had the annual Lobster Dinner and it was a great success. We served 234 folks in about 35 minutes! This must be a record for us. The more things we do the better we get, just like shooting! Get ready for the annual Chicken BBQ, the tickets are already out. The cost is just $8.00 each and pre-sale only. The dinner will be August 21 @ 6:30 PM.
It's that time again! Time to turn in your raffle tickets or hopefully the ticket stubs and money. If you tickets are not all sold please call Paul Christman or myself ASAP. Many folks have asked us for tickets and they are all out. Please if you cannot sell what you have get them to us. We can sell all 1000 numbers again! That maximizes profit and gives us a winner every night.
I wish to thank everyone that donated, supported, or helped in anyway with the 10th Anniversary K-9 ride. We had a record 177 bikes, (3 never left the club for the ride) and raised $10650 for the K-9 Division of the Fulton County Sheriff's Department. The K-9 unit is not funded by the County, it relies on private donations.
