Essex County League

From the Essex County League, of which ASC is a member:

After a pandemic-forced two year absence, the League of Essex County Sportsmen’s Clubs is seeking to reorganize our traditional Sportsmen’s Banquet. It is scheduled to take place at the Danvers Fish & Game Club, (20 Birch Road, Middleton, MA), on March 25, 2023 at 6 PM. The cost will be $45 per person.The banquet will feature a BBQ menu of pulled pork, ribs, standard sides and deserts, coffee, tea and soft drinks. In response to past suggestions, the event will also be BYOB, and feature a very limited number of speakers. The food will be served buffet-style. There will of course be the usual ticket and card raffles for valuable items such as a muzzle loader, and various other desirable gifts.

If you would like to attend, please let me know before December 15. The Essex County League needs to have 100 attendees to make the event worthwhile.

Thank you,
Doug Cooper
