Our General Work Day was a huge success. Approximately 30 volunteers showed up to help. During the day we completed hanging of additional berm walls, the frame was put up for the new overhang at the Rifle Range, and the interior of the Education was cleaned. After the work ceased, lunch was provided for all the volunteers. Our work isn’t over yet, but we have come a long way in just a short time. Amazing what can be accomplished in a few short hours with organization and your volunteer support. For all those individuals that helped: THANK YOU AND WELL DONE. On this note, paint has been purchased for the storage out buildings, some work still needs to be completed on the new berm walls and the roof needs to be put onto the rifle range overhang. Keep in mind this is just phase 1 of our upgrades. If you do have some ideas on what you would like to see build or upgraded, please let Frank or the Board know so your ideas can be taken under advisement and voted upon.
Another successful Ladies Day Shoot. The chapter held our Ladies Day Shooting event on Sunday, April 29th. We had about 60 ladies show up for this event. Everyone had an excellent time, from the participants to the volunteers. Even Mother Nature helped as we couldn’t have asked for better weather. After shooting hotdogs and hamburger were provided with all the fixins. What a great day for all!
Daniel LaGasse Scholarship forms are still being accepted for the summer camp at Fork Retch. Don’t delay if you have or know someone who would like to send their child to camp. This is a fully paid scholarship along with spending money.
Just a reminder. Please remove your trash or shell casings after shooting at the ranges and take along with you when you leave. Also, if you see illegal activity, report the issue to one of the board members.
On March 29 Johnny Goebel, Barbara Tyndall and Jeff Fink gave a Wildlife presentation to the students at Palmetto Bay Elementary School. All the students and presenters had a great time.
HCWLA Skeet and Trap shooters made a fabulous impression at National’s Fur, Fin and Feather event held earlier in April. After the first round the other teams ceded the contest.
The Chapter will be holding 2 Pioneer events are upcoming. The first will be held May 12th and the second event will be held on June 9th. Both will be held from 9AM until 2PM.
On a down note, a few memberships were terminated due to unsafe shooting practices. Their keys were collected and they were sent home. Remember, there are to be no rapid fire, automatic fire or bump stop firing at our ranges. This is not our rule alone, but set by National. Keep in mind that any Board Member can warn or remove those involved in unsafe activities at our facility.
Let’s not forget our sponsors: First Choice Heating and Air; Anderson Brother’s Bank, Rivertown Gun Depot and Frank and Betty Pate. We really appreciate their support. We should also mention our printer for the monthly Newsletter. The UPS Store at 3761 Renee Drive (by Kroger in Carolina Forest), gives us excellent support with their timely printing each month. If you need copies or just need to mail your packages, see Joe and tell him Horry Chapter WLA mentioned them for their excellent service. We would also like to acknowledge David Quante of Myrtle Beach Coin Store for his generous donation of 2 shotguns and lots of ammunition.
Lastly, the raffle was held at our meeting for the Judge. It was won by Ed Witner. The 50-50 was won by Gavin Furlong.
Roses are Red, Violets are Blue, but they don’t get around like the Dandelions do
