Road Work Complete

All ASC members,

I am pleased to inform you that you now have unimpeded access to the club property from all three approaches. All paving work has been completed and for the first time in more than a decade we can now look forward to not doing a bit of harm to our cars each time we drive to the club.

The only negligible warning is that although all paving work has been completed, there is a stretch of road commencing near the Ranger station when heading towards Middleton where they have yet to paint the yellow center line. It is my understanding that this minor task should be completed tomorrow (June 21st).

Dick Reichter, President

Club Access (Road Closure) Update

Steve Cooper (ASC Director of Community Relations) has been looking into the situation we reported late yesterday concerning Middleton Road repairs and the effect that will have on members gaining access to ASC property. After having had discussions with the North Andover and State Police authorities, Steve also had an on-site discussion with the head of the work crew.
 
The result are as follows:

  1. That which is taking place is a State and not a North Andover project
  2. Because they are repaving the entire length of Middleton Road the work will continue through this coming weekend,
  3. The repair crews have no problem allowing members to gain access to ASC property. They only ask that you be patient.
  4. Generally they are working on a single lane at a time allowing permitted traffic access. However, when paving commences (probably tomorrow) they cannot guarantee 100% that one lane will always be clear. They describe the odds of the one lane used for traffic being closed from time to time as being "spotty"
  5. I again suggest that when trying to access the club that you do so from the Jenkins Road direction.

Further information will be posted as it is available, including when the project has been concluded and normal access is restored.

Dick Reichter, President

"Steel Crush" Family Competition

The "Steel Crush" Family Competition is a family-based event with 3 categories: Kewl Kids, Wicked Awesome Women, & Frontiersmen. All youth participants must have a Youth Badge. The Club will provide 22LR bolt-action rifles, ammuntion, hearing / eye protection, and Range Safety Officers. In this timed event, participants will attempt to knock over small steel silhouettes (10 shots in three minutes). At least one target must be toppled in order to advance. Brackets will be utilized to determine a winner from each category.

Notice of Road Closure

Middleton Road was closed today without our having received any advance notice.

The reason is laudible involving the badly needed road resurfacing. As soon as we have reliable information regarding the length of time the road will be closed we will post that here on the website, as well as a notice when the road is officially reopened.

In the meantime, inasmuch as access must be available to residents (and ASC is a resident), they may allow you access. It also appears as the work crew finishes around 3:00pm and although posted with no-one on site I was able to get access a short while ago (3:55pm June 13th). No guarantees but these efforts may be worth a try.

Finally, it is likely if you do try to gain access that you will have an easier time if you do so from the Jenkins Road direction.

Letter from the President - June 2017

The primary message I wish to express in this report is that of offering to all ASC members the best wishes from your Board of Directors for a safe and enjoyable summer holiday.

As customary, there will not be regular membership meetings, nor will there be regular monthly website posting of each Director’s activities, during the months of July and August.

However, there will be special membership meetings in both July and August. A reminder notice of those meeting will be posted prior to each special meeting and notices of important events will be posted on the website as required

I encourage members to attend the pre summer June 8th , 2017 membership meeting when we will have a special speaker (see Community Relations Report for details) and we will be awarding student scholarships.

I also encourage all members to review the Community Relations report which mentions a number of community initiatives that will take place during the months following the summer holiday break.

Your volunteering a small amount of your time needed to make those initiatives a success is absolutely required

Respectfully,
Dick Reichter, President​
