Directors' Notes

Nominations for election to the Board of Directors may still be made at the regular club meetings on December 1st and December 15th. To be eligible for nomination you must be a member in good standing, be proposed by a current member of the club, and be present at the meeting to accept the nomination. Terms expiring this year are those of: Wayne Cook, Bill Johnson, and Denny Meszaros. Elections will be held in January for the open positions. Nominated at the November 17th meeting were: Bill Johnson, Wayne Cook, and Denny Gligora.

Due to vendor inventory/shipping issues various items are unavailable for purchase. Therefore, they aren't on the menu as specials. Hopefully this will be resolved in the near future, and we apologize for the inconvenience.

Effective with the upcoming renewal season (2022-2023) there will be a $10 increase in annual membership dues. The last time dues were raised was in 2018, and 2012 prior to that. We feel this is necessary considering the ever-increasing expenses the club incurs on a daily basis. "Early Bird" pricing will remain in effect offering a $10 discount to any payments made during February and March 2022.

The Board of Directors and Employees of the Lakewood Rod & Gun would like to wish all our members and their families a safe and happy holiday season.
