The next Business Meeting will be on Monday, November 13th.

Remember that Sight-in days will be November 4 & 5th and 11 & 12th. Saturday hours will be 10:00 am until 4:00 pm and Sunday hours will be from noon until 4:00 pm. The cost is only $5.00 per gun so please tell all your friends about this event. Lunch will be provided for volunteer workers. Please contact Dean Councilor (231-632-0968) to volunteer your services. Dean will be able to tell you if additional help is needed on certain days so we don’t have to many volunteers on some days and not enough on others.

The Hunters Supper will be on Saturday, November 11th from 4:00 pm until 7:00 pm. KSC member and executive chef Jim Buie will once again be preparing both the sight-in-days lunches and the Hunters Supper. The cost for this delicious meal is only $7.00 for a single, $14.00 for a couple and $20.00 for a family. Volunteers for Friday night set up, Saturday food prep, serving and cleanup will be needed. Please help out by calling Ted Hentschel @ 231-313-0720 to volunteer.

As part of the Sight-in-days and Hunters Supper, there will be a raffle for the exquisite knife made by professional knife maker and member Bill Behnke who donated the knife to our Club. This knife has a retail value of $275.00 so be sure to get your tickets. Many thanks Bill for your craftsmanship generosity.

Many thanks for the Young Marines who graciously donated $100.00 to the KSC.
