June Presidents Column
by Bruce Kobara, President
The spring work party was a great success because of all
of the members that provided their skills. Many projects
were worked on and the club looks great because of all
the club members that showed up to help. We plan on
having another work party day in the Fall. Thank you to
all the members who helped out the club.
Our annual kids fishing derby was fantastic. Over 124
kids showed up with their families. The trout were
planted by the Calif. DFG at the start of the derby and
they stayed in the boat launch area. Over 190 fish were
caught by the kids, many got full limits of trout.
Our Hall rental Chairman Bill Sanchez has decided to
retire from the position. Bill has served our club for
many years in several offices including President of the
club. He will continue to give the orientation briefing to
new club member candidates. We are looking for a club
member to fill the position of hall rental chairman. If
you are interested contact me or any board officer or
board member.
Our spring raffle is for a Taurus stainless steel .44 mag
pistol. The pistol is in never been fired condition and is
ported for recoil and muzzle flip reduction. The pistol
has been donated by an anonymous club member.
Tickets will be on sale at the June dinner meeting,
at Markleys shooting range and at East Lake Hardware.
The drawing will be on the June general meeting.
The tickets will be 1 ticket for $10.00 or 3 for $25.00.

I have received reports of club members bringing their
own drinks to the dinner meeting. Wine may be brought
to the meeting, but it is subject to a corkage fee to be
paid at the bar. Any other alcoholic beverages are not
allowed under our state liquor license. I am sure that
none of us wants to have our license revoked or for the
club to be fined. Also I must remind the club members
that guests must be 21 years old or older.
We have seven new members voted in by the board of
directors; John Benich, Antonio Figueroa, Rosemarie
Fey, Steve Montgomery, Bill Nelson, Steve Remdeand
and Roger Zardo. We also have a re-enstateded member:
Mike Shaw, welcome back.
Those of you that would like to receive the newsletter
by email, please, email Mike Cigler. Mike’s email
address is; [email protected] . The club will
save about $14.00 per member per year for each
newsletter that is emailed vs mailing a hard copy.
Also the newsletter is posted on our web site

Future Range Improvement
Over the last several months, the Board has been considering
many options for improving range ventilation. At its May
meeting the Board committed to a plan and voted to
immediately take the first steps toward its implementation.
The preparations to be completed this year are installation
of the necessary electrical service, construction of a pad for
the fan(s) and removal of the deck. In that connection we all
owe a debt of gratitude to Mike Holcroft who has already
stepped up to help with the electrical work. I ask any of you
who can help construct the concrete pad to contact me. And
I ask all of you to make it a point to attend our next Club
work party (likely in August) to help remove the deck and
restore the building's lake-side facade.
Thanks to Richard Eichinger, Brannon Schell and Stu
Lawson who came out for the May 5th Club work party
to improve the range.
Semiauto Pistol Clinic on July 14th
Robert Leonardich will conduct a third clinic the morning
of July 14th. As anyone who's attended can confirm for you,
this is very worthwhile couching. And it's absolutely free:
you only have to bring your semiautomatic pistol,
ammunition, eye and ear protection and a willingness to
learn. Only four slots are left. Contact me if you want to
take advantage of this training.
Range Safety Officer Certification:
I will be conducting NRA Range Safety Officer training
the morning of June 30th. Registration closes on May 31st.
Contact me immediately if you want this certification. Page 2 of 4
