  Newsletter July 2018


 
Greetings to all. Hope this finds everyone well and are surviving this heatwave we are in. The good news is that there plenty of outdoor tournaments left to participate in and the hunt seasons are right around the corner.
  July 1st Cottonwood hosted it's first ever state unmarked outdoor 3D at Prairie lake range. With a lot of hard work, dedication and planning we were able to make this event a sucess. We recieved positive coments from all who participated. We still need more members to make it.                                                                
  It's election year. I have decided that this will be my last year serving as president. Laura and Jerry Allen will be stepping away as club secretary and treasurer as well. There may also be some vacancies on the board of directors depending on the outcome of the officers election. We are asking that any member who has maintained an active membership in cottonwood for a minimum of at least two years, and is willing to dedicate themselves to a four year term please throw you hat into the ring and be part of the leadership. We will have a signup sheet at the remainder of our outdoor shoots for you too selct an office in which you would like to run. Then this fall we will have an election by currrent members. Keep in mind that these positions require a lot of time, energy and commitment, so please give serious thought. I would like to take the opportunity to say thank you all for giving me the opportunity to serve as club president over the last four years. This was my second term in the last 12 years in this office. It was a pleasure to do so. Wish all my best to our future officers.
