Special Membership Meeting and New Member Orientation

Please note that the scheduled membership meeting on Thursday, February 9th was cancelled due to there being an insufficient number of members present to reach a quorum. For this reason, as no members were voted in, there will be NO new members orientation on Sunday, February 12th.

A Special Membership Meeting will be held on the following Sunday, February 19th at 9am for the sole purpose of the membership voting in potential new members. Directly following this meeting there will be a new members orientation for those new members voted in.

Letter from the President - February 2017

My Fellow Members

As you will note from the respective department reports January saw all ASC departments getting off to a solid beginning for 2017 with only a few weather induced inconveniences typical to this time of the year.

A number of events are planned throughout the year. The details of each will be posted when appropriate on the ASC Web Site.

The first event will be a presentation by the Head of the Massachusetts GOAL organization at the February 9, 2017 membership meeting. I strongly encourage your attendance as current Massachusetts and Federal political circumstances make it important that we all have a better understanding of the legislative forces at work and what they might mean to ASC.

I also encourage members and their families to consider making Sunday breakfast at ASC a regular part of your weekly routine. You will get an excellent breakfast for the princely sum of $5.00 for adults. There is no charge for children under the age of eight or for youth between the ages of eight and eighteen that have an ASC Youth Badge.

Perhaps more importantly, the social setting will provide an opportunity to mingle with, and get to know better, your fellow members

Consistent with our mission as a family oriented club, and as the above photograph will attest, the Sunday morning environment is very much “children friendly”.

Dick Reichter, President

Letter from the President - January 2017


Although this will be the fifth year during which I will have served as President of our club it is only my initial 2017 monthly message. As such, my first order of business on behalf of all ASC members is to thank all 2016 members of the BOD for their contributions to the continuing development of ASC. The amount of voluntary time and effort that is required of all Directors is immense and must always be appreciated.

I wish to first thank Jimmy Hehir for his many years of service as the Club’s Secretary and to Mark Klove not only for his service as President but for his willingness to serve as Jimmy’s successor..

In addition, there are two new members of the BOD. One is Cheryl Crawford who is the new Membership Director. I have known Cheryl since she the day she joined ASC when I had the pleasure of providing her initial trap shooting lessons. Subsequently Cheryl has willingly undertaken every task asked of her including having been of significant assistance to Steve Harsfald who has been an outstanding Membership Director the last two years.

The other is Steve Cooper as our new Community Relations Director, a role that has been redefined in a manner such that it may well become the single most important of all BOD responsibilities. That being said we are indebted to Matt Lavoie for his prior efforts as Director; Community Relations and especially for his willingness to remain the ASC webmaster.

On behalf of your 2017 BOD I assure all members of your BOD’s continuing commitment to do everything possible in order to provide maximum service to all ASC members on a financially responsible basis.

In addition, commencing with the January Membership meeting:

  1. We will encourage any member to become more actively engaged by posing appropriate questions to any Director when they deliver their monthly department reports.
  2. We will explain at each meeting selected Protocols and Procedures that govern how our club is managed
  3. We will endeavor to have at least on an every other month basis guest speakers on issues of interest to the membership

In closing I encourage all members to make a genuine effort to attend the monthly membership meetings in order that you can become better informed as to your club’s current and planned activities

Dick Reichter, President
