July 5th, 2022
Hello Everyone,

  It's already July the summer is already flying by, it seems we were just shoveling snow a few minutes ago. It won't be long before Our August raffle will start, there are still tickets available just contact Mr Christman, 518-568-2623 or catch him at the clubhouse. We are already planning on next years raffle, we're thinking of raffling off a gallon of gasoline, but we don't know if we will be able to afford it. It's definitely getting pretty tough. The good news is the club is doing pretty well and we will not be raising dues this year!

  There are a few tickets available for the lobster dinner July 20th. The tickets are $20 per person. The chicken barbecue is right around the corner in August and those tickets are $12 each. I would strongly suggest you get your tickets early because they should sell out.

  We are having and information on meeting July 25th with Assemblyman Roberts Smullen, Fulton County Sheriff Richard Giardino, and Montgomery County Sheriff Jeffrey Smith. They will be there to answer questions you may have about Governor Hochul's overreach on changing the Supreme Court ruling about Concealed Carry rights. The meeting will start at 6:30 and will be open to the public. Weather permitting we will have it outside.

  With help from our friends Kingsboro Lumber, Brown's Ford, Brown's Collision, Frank Grillo, and Blood Eagle Weaponry, and our 13th Annual K-9 Ride, the club was able to raise $27,000 for the Fulton County Sheriff's Department K9 unit. This blew our last record away by over $13,000. Peter Tautznik has chaired the ride since its inception. Of course he had help from about 100 club members without whose effort we could not succeed in such an undertaking. We are really lucky to have volunteers at our club. If it wasn't for the volunteerism this club would not exist.

  We are once again part of the Salute to Service Coalition the annual veterans picnic will be held on August 25th at the Paul Niagara Center 4:00 p.m. to 7:00. Great food entertainment and camaraderie. You must RSVP online at http:// 2022vetsdinner.rsvpify.com

  We have a lot of new members, and it's up to every one of us to make sure everyone stays safe. If you see something that's not right, please say something. We try to get out as much information as possible at orientation meetings, but some things don't always sink in. The greatest thing about Pine Tree Rifle Club is that our members are willing to help each other. If you see someone that needs some help or explain the proper way of doing something please do it. That will make things safer for everybody

  There has been a lot of projects that we have completed this year. The Wednesday work party group is still in full force and we thank them for all the work that they do around our club. The club invested in a new roof recently, as well as a new freezer for the kitchen and a little bit of remodeling in the kitchen back room. This will make things better for all of us. Over the years we have tried to improve the club every year, and we are very proud of the things our volunteers accomplish.

  When is the last time you attended a club meeting? The next members meeting is on July 13th, and August 10th, both are at 7:00 p.m. we hope to see you there!
