Jr Shooter

  • Rotary club grant – $1000. Got 10 scope mounts with grant money. Part of the money came from the rotary club, some came from a private donor.  Makes everything all the same now.
  • Raffle tickets were printed up to see for the new rifle. Browning T bolt with scope. Drawing on the last day of the gun show.

Gayel – Gun Show

  • 29 tables sold for the gun show
  • CREA – only gave $1500 for advertising instead of $2500
  • Because we’re changing times and dates – need extra advertising to make sure people know. Use extra $1000 to do extra advertising.  Motioned – passed.
  • CREA – banner across main st. They aren’t going to let gun show put in application for both advertising and banner. Banner for hunter sight in??  won’t let us do both hunter sight in and gun show funding.  They will hang banners for each, just won’t fund both.  $3k is for buying the banner.
  • City hangs the banner.
  • Banner for hunter sight or advertising for 2023 – losing advertising $$ for gun show anyways.
