Members are also reminded of the "Work Hours" obligation.  As a member you agree to volunteer for a minimum of 8 hours per year for activities and projects in and around the club.  Members still have time to fulfill the work hours of 2014 before June 1st, 2015.  Any member not fulfilling this requirement will be assessed an additional fee of $25.00 to be added onto their renewal dues, for a total of $85.00 to renew their membership.

Your membership renewals are to be turned in to/mailed to the attention of Membership Director, Bob Bonacorsi.  If you have any further questions regarding your club membership renewal you may contact Bob at 989-366-1340 or email him at rbonacorsi1340@charter.net .



                                                      WORK HOURS OPPORTUNITES

An obligation of being a member at the Houghton Lake Sportsmen's Club is to support your club by way of volunteering your time for the various events and activities going on in and around the club.  Each member  promises to fulfill 8 hours of volunteer time during the year. 

There are many opportunities to fulfill this obligation of "work hours" throughout the year.  Volunteers are always needed as range assistants (change/collect targets, ammo) during the numerous Shooting Matches currently on the calendar of events.  Other ways to obtain your work hours credits would be to help out during the annual Gun Show, Garage Sale and the Open House.  You can stop by the clubhouse to help out with range cleaning after a shooting event or meeting, volunteering to work on some of the upcoming indoor and outdoor improvement projects being planned for the club this year, stopping by with your rake or mower to clear leaves, trim or cut grass, provide treats for the monthly Monday meetings.  Any task you provide in, around and for the club can count toward the work hours obligation.   

When a member has completed any volunteer task for the club, credit is given by filling out a "work hours completed" form and placing it in the mail slot to Bob Bonacorsi (Membership Director) located inside the clubhouse.  



                                             PROJECT APPLESEED

The Houghton Lake Sportsmen's Club will be hosting the participants of the "Project Appleseed" program for 2015 on Saturday & Sunday July 11th - 12th and on Saturday & Sunday August 22nd - 23rd.  The program takes place from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. on the Saturday dates and from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. on the Sunday dates.  This is a 2-day weekend training clinic that teaches the participants the traditional skills of rifle marksmanship from a standing, sitting, kneeling and prone position.  Information about this program and registering for it can be found by going to the Project Appleseed website: appleseedinfo.org where you will find all the necessary details about this event.  

"Project Appleseed" is a non-profit organization that began in April 2006 in Ramseur, North Carolina by the "Revolutionary War Veterans Association" - a group  of volunteer instructors that developed a nationwide program in teaching traditional rifle marksmanship skills, keeping alive the history and early American heritage of the founding fathers.  The organization commemorates the historic date of April 19, 1775 and the Battles of Lexington and Concord.  

                                                "By the rude bridge that arched the flood,
                                                  Their flag to April's breeze unfurled,
                                                  Here once the embattled farmers stood, 
                                                  And fired the shot heard 'round the world."

                                                                                         -- "Concord Hymn" by Ralph Waldo Emerson
                                                                                                          July 4, 1837

Please visit the "Project Appleseed" website to read more about the organization's mission and commitment to preserving this important time in our history.
