Next week, Nov. 30, the House Tax Policy Committee will have a hearing on Senate Bill 570. This bill will give property tax exemption to all Sportsman/Conservation Clubs that are 100% members of a Statewide Conservation Organization due to the fact that promote conservation in their communities.

We need club reps to testify in Lansing in support at the hearing or at least be willing to have a card of support submitted.

If your club can help out, please email Exec. Dir. Dan Eichinger
before the 30th!

Plaid Shirt Night Thanks

Thank you to all of our guests that chose to attend our event. Our elimination of the “Chilkoot Pass” at the stairwell seemed to be a hit, as well as our Catering and table service choice of Pere Marquette Catering. We will still require some tweaking however on our long lines at the raffle items table, and the overcrowding, while still taking full advantage of our club house as our venue of choice. – These concerns will be addressed. If you have any POSITIVE ONLY comments: Please pass them along to our ” night of ” volunteers, as well as our ” behind the scenes volunteers.” In addition, please contact Gordon at GORDONGR47 @YAHOO.COM or 231 843 9471 with any and all NEGATIVE ONLY comments. ————————
