Due to the high volume of applications being submitted, we are doing this special meeting to vote in new members before the summer hiatus where we do not hold meetings during July and August.  The CUT OFF DATE THAT YOUR APPLICATION MUST BE RECEIVED IS JUNE 9th. At this meeting, you will be voted in and directly after the meeting you will be split into smaller groups and receive your Range Safety Orientation.

Any other applications received after June 9th, 2016 will be held for the September membership meeting.  Once September is full, applications will be rolled over to October, November and December.

Please read the March Director's Update for Membership on the website and this will explain why we are limiting new members to approximately 20 per regular membership meeting.  If you have ANY questions, please email membership@andoversportsmensclub and I will be glad to help you.

2016 Children's Fish Derby

Our biggest community event of the year, the 2016 Fishing Derby, is almost here! It will be held on Saturday, April 23, 2016 and will start at 6:00 am at Sudden Pond, and will run until noon.

It is free for children 15 and under. We provide light breakfast and lunch, trophies, raffle prizes, and bait. You just need to bring your child and gear. There will be a very limited number of rods to borrow, if one is needed, so please don't rely on them.

I am looking for volunteers to help make this fishing derby a success. Please email me at matt.lavoie@andoversportsmensclub.org if you are able to assist.

Date: 
Saturday, April 23, 2016 - 6:00am to 12:00pm
