Vice-President’s Report (Mike Gapsch)

We are still effectively selling tickets for the gun raffle. We have already sold enough to pay for the cost of the gun so any additional sales will be profit for the club. The raffle continues until the last fun shoot.

Share your pics & stories in the woods on our club Facebook site: South County Archers St. Louis. If you are not already on there go to the site and send me a request to join. Also, please invite other to like and join our site as well. Secondly, you can also email your harvest photos to pics@southcountyarchers.com so we can upload to a gallery site that we are putting together.
