Notice to ALL CSA members
The Annual meeting has been moved to the month of September. (Specific Day is pending at this time)
The reason behind this change is that the Board would like to make the Annual Meeting more of a meeting which includes the family, with a big potluck cookout. Also offering some fun activities. A FUN day for all. Another factor is we will not have to move snow for the meeting in September. NOTE: this does not move the fiscal year dating for CSA. Membership fees will still run from Jan 1 through Dec 31 each year. Another change pertains to the term of the officers (President, Vice-President, Secretary and Treasure). The By-Laws as they are written today require all 4 officer’s positions be on the ballot each year. The change will change the officer’s positions to 2 year term. Only two of the position would be voted on each year (President, Secretary and the following year Vice-President and Treasure). As CSA continues to grow and increase the shooting activities, this change will help maintain a balanced leadership team. Thank You for being a member of CSA

Long Range Shooters,
Reminder. The Saturday Long Range League Shoot for CSA members and non-members Saturday at 9:30 AM going through the winter and spring as weather permits.
[Always check the CSA calendar to verify if the league is being held] Painted steel at all yardages and paper at 600 yards weather conditions permitting.
Additional steel has been added to the range. Specifically we added a 24"x24" plate at both 350 and 600 yards. This helps greatly to get on target fast at 600 yard. The plate at 350 will be very helpful for those shooting AR15s and 223's.
And the plate at 350 will be good for hunters, those wanting to make sure their hunting rifles are ready for that 350 yard shot this fall. With the added steel, additional clay pigeons and golf balls placed at 600 yards.
Need to remind everyone to be courteous of others.
Please shoot the clay pigeons and golf balls near your target and those placed under the large steel and know-your-limits steel targets.
Any target suggestions, let us know. We want to add to your shooting enhancement. Thank you.
Also, if any of you need to renew your membership or become a CSA member please let our club membership director Beth Schabert know, she will coordinate with you.

The competition [if you elect to participate] again for this shoot for those wanting to participate is the best score of two five shot targets at 600 yards.
