Archery Update

We picked up 5 new targets for the 3D course. Most impressive is the Grizzly bear. Targets were purchased through the generous donation made by Whitetails Unlimited – Chelsea Chapter. Thank you Whitetails and please remember to support that organization for their work. 

We have our first shoot Feb 1 which will be indoors in the YTF. All shooters start at 10am. Lunch is included.  Dave Drenth attended the Traditional Archery Expo in Kalamazoo in January. He reports a great turn out and interest in the club on many levels. He is also working on a few other promotional items for the future. Thanks, Dave for all your efforts!

Tight Lines for Troops event

Please consider this worthy cause, excerpt from from the event website:http://tightlinesfortroops.com/

Manistee Michigan – May 17-18 2019

Tight Lines for Troops (a federally recognized nonprofit organization) proudly announced its 10th Annual Charity Fishing Tournament for Michigan Veterans. In 2018 the fleet included over 50 Captains and their boats, and delivered another memorable experience for 300 Michigan Veterans. Those who received “boarding priority” were WWII and Korean War Vets, Purple Heart recipients, veterans disabled, POWs, and then any Veteran of any branch of service. In addition to the Big Lake boat fishing, the Pier/Shore Divisions included opportunities for Veterans to fish from land.

Though the fishing tournament and meal is limited to registered participants, the public is invited to join the “Welcome Back Celebration” as the boats return to the City Marina, traveling up the river channel. The riverwalk along the river channel is lined with patriotic and appreciative fans, waving their flags to cheer and welcome the fishermen back “home”. In expressing his gratitude for the event a previous participant said, “When I came home from duty, we were told not to wear our uniforms. The people were tired of Southeast Asia. Thank you for honoring these great men and women for their service. I was honored to be part of the day.” Another participant shared these feelings: “This is the Welcome Home I never received. After all these years, I cried because I didn’t realize how much it meant to me. I was proud to take part.” Don’t miss this amazing sight – be a part of it!

The success of this program is a result of the collective efforts of over 500 sponsors and volunteers. Veterans pay no charter fees or entry fees. It is with great pleasure and honor that we all look forward to hosting the “10th Annual Tight Lines for Troops Fishing Tournament for Michigan Veterans” on May 17th and 18th, 2019.
