The next Tuscaloosa Shooting Sports workday will be on Saturday, June 24, 2017 starting at 8:30 AM. If a good number of members come and help, we should be done around Noon.
If you have any of the following tools, please bring them with you: string trimmers (weed eaters), power pole saws, chain saws, leaf blowers, post hole diggers, and shovels. We will be installing a number of 4×4 posts for signs around the property, as well as taking care of a number of cleaning/general upkeep tasks.
Hope to see many of you on the 24th.

I hope you all had a great Christmas! I would like to pass along some information. First, at our last Board Meeting in early December we reviewed dues collections. Our plan worked better than last year, but there is room for improvement. Because we were a little late in the roll out of the new plan, the Board voted to waive the $25 late charge for members paying in December this year. So if you haven’t paid your 2017 dues yet, be sure to get a check in the mail before the end of December. Send your $250 check to Tuscaloosa Shooting Sports, P.O. Box 1242, Northport, AL 35476. Call me if you have any questions. Second, in an earlier email we stated that the gate combination would change January 1st. The Board wants to wait until after our Annual Meeting January 23rd. Our plan is to have new identification cards with the 2017 gate combination at the meeting for those in attendance and mail the remaining IDs out. The new combination will be effective February 1st.
Also, consider this to be the official notice of the Annual Meeting on Monday January 23, 2017 at 6:00 pm at Mr. Bill’s in Northport. We will discuss Club business, elect two Board Members, and distribute member cards. We look forward to seeing you there.

Greeting fellow members and Merry Christmas.
Our annual club meeting is scheduled for January 23, 2017 at 6:00 pm at Mr. Bill’s restaurant in Northport. During this meeting we will vote for and elect two board members who will serve for the coming four years. In addition, there are four officer positions (President, Vice President, Secretary, and Treasurer) available and intended for two year terms that are appointed by the board. While all four positions are under consideration for new appointment, we have a definite need to replace the resigning Vice President and Secretary. Officers are responsible for handling day to day matters of club business such as membership and records maintenance, financial management, and assessing responding to club needs. Our desire is to have as many club members as possible serve in varying capacities of club management. This helps us to always stay connected with the desires and needs of the membership and helps provide experienced people for continuity of operations of the club. The board would like to ask each member consider submitting his or her name for consideration for any of these board or officer positions. With the support and involvement of our members we can keep Tuscaloosa Shooting Sports operating on a sound footing and provide recreational shooting opportunities for members and their families and guests far into the future. Please take time to respond to this message if you’d like to be considered.
