We need more members to be involved and participate in keeping our building and grounds in good shape. And not necessarily in monetary donations either. If we could get enough people to come and donate a few hours of time and labor we could get these projects done. If we don’t get the repairs to the building done, then we won’t have a place to go and enjoy ourselves with the friends we have made over the years. It seems that many of the same people are doing all the up-keep at the club. As a member, please make a choice to step up and help. Monetary donations may be sent to the club at the above address, please note with “Building Fund” on the envelope and check.
If you would like to host an event at the club pavilion, there is a 100.00 deposit and a $30..00 Non- REFUNDABLE Fee will be deducted for the Pavilion Rental.

Here is an Important Message that we need to tell our Assmebly Member to vote NO on.
Yesterday I shared a link to a petitions to tell our state officials vote NO on A00722 banning hunting contest as this bill is a broad spectrum bill it allows for other regulations to be adopted more easily once it is in place, but in this round it will also put an end to field trial testing of hunting dogs as an effort to end the use of dogs for hunting, including those who have their companions assist in water fowl season. This also fits into the proposed state ban on organizations raffling off rifles and shotguns, essentially killing all the NYS Ducks Unlimited chapters and Hunting Clubs that make 80-90% of their yearly budget through the raffles, and then other funds from other hunting competitions including seasons largest coyote, or largest turkey or even a multi-club contest where the most deer meat donated to shelters or food pantries. They could all be illegal and will out an end to these clubs. Here is some more information and below is a list of all the sponsors of A722, most are from NYC, one is from Cortland and represents Tompkins County. One is a republican, and the rest are democrats. Why is NYC deciding what is best for the rest of NY?
BILL NO A00722
