The Fin & Feather Club relies on volunteer work by the members to maintain and improve the facility. Some projects are contracted when appropriate and preference is given to members when possible. Any Fin & Feather Club member working in the field of carpentry, plumbing, electrical and so on, that would like to be contacted for possable work related repairs, contact Paul Petersen to have your name placed on a list. Members are encouraged to perform any helpful work on their own initiative and asked to consider themselves “on the committee”. Reimbursement is made for parts and material. However, we especially rely on those who commit to take care of a specific job i.e. keeping the club house clean.

The buildings and grounds include:

  • Main Club House
  • Storage Barn
  • Perimeter Fencing
  • Pistol Range
  • Skeet Range & Buildings
  • Trap Range & Buildings
  • Small Bore Range
  • Big Bore Range
  • Archery Course
  • Various Benches & Shooting Rests
  • Trash Containers
  • Utilities
  • Kitchen Upkeep
  • Painting
  • Brush Pruning
  • Mowing
  • Signage
  • Gate & Road Upkeep

The Chairperson of the “B & G” committee functions as a contact person, reports at club meetings, enlists volunteers, proposes equipment purchases and projects, and generally seeks to facilitate and assist. Anyone who would consider working with the buildings & grounds chairperson should contact either of the individuals listed above.

In past years the club has benefited from hundreds of hours of work performed by people in the Mason County Community Corrections program. Typically this has been painting, raking, sweeping, mopping, brush work, fence erection and repair, and general clean up. The work is usually done on a Saturday with one to four younger men. These workers have been required to perform a certain number of hours of community service work. All it needs is an individual to be the requesting contact with the Corrections Department, meet the workers at the club, direct the work to be done, and report back to the Corrections Department.

If you become, or already are a member, we rely on you to become involved and contribute in some way. You can select the level of your time and effort to fit your schedule. Our club would simply not be the great one it is without our volunteers. The Buildings and Grounds committee is an excellent area for your help.
