Letter from the President - January 2018

I hope all ASC members had a wonderful Christmas Holiday, and on behalf of your Board of Directors, I wish all ASC members a happy, healthy and prosperous New Year.

As we move further into 2018 considerable information concerning all ASC activities will be provided on a regular basis.

As such, the purpose of this message is to announce changes in BOD responsibilities effective January 1, 2018 in order that all members can better communicate with the director responsible for any questions you may have:

Letter from the President - December 2017

You will find elsewhere on the website year-end status reports from each of the club’s operating departments covering key aspects of our 2017 operations.

In addition to those reports I am pleased to add that during 2017 your club continued to operate on a financially sound basis while at the same time upgrading and expanding our facilities in order to serve our growing membership requirements.

With respect to membership we have continued our effort to be known as a dedicated friendly and welcoming family oriented club.

A dedicated Community Relations effort has continued with the objective of our club being thought of by the communities we serve as a “Good Neighbor”. Those efforts, among others, include; providing continuing education scholarships to local high school graduates, sponsoring youth summer camp attendance, holding the annual fishing derby for all local community youth, holding weekly tours open to the public for prospective members, providing monthly military veteran’s assistance financial support, supporting local law enforcement organizations by providing them training important facilities, supporting scouting and numerous other youth program and an extraordinarily extensive educational curricula.

On behalf of your entire Board of Directors we wish all ASC members and their families a Merry Christmas and a healthy, happy and prosperous 2018 New Year.

Dick Reichter, President​

Letter from the President - October 2017

As we enter the fall season numerous activities are planned for the balance of the year, the details of which are addressed in the reports of the various Department Directors. As you read about each event, each training class, etc. you should never forget that they exist for your enjoyment as a result of the efforts of your members.

The next general club event will be the fall clean up party next Saturday. I thank in advance those members that participate.

With respect to my having also assumed the temporary mantel of Director, Trap Operations I wish to thank those members that continue to assist every week in all of the numerous Trap, Skeet and 5-Stand support activities. I especially wish to express my appreciation for the recent efforts of Mike Pasco, Membership Director, who has stepped in to handle all special events and in many respects act as de facto Trap Director

Dick Reichter, President​

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

Dick Reichter, President​

Letter from the President - May 2017

The beginning of Spring at ASC has again been kick started by the annual Spring Clean Up held on April 29, 2017. All ASC members owe a significant debt of gratitude to approximately 35 of your fellow members for the great work they performed preparing the club’s facilities for the enjoyment of all members now that the weather is becoming increasingly receptive. Those 35 members are to be applauded for making the effort to give something back to the club rather than simply enjoying the results o the labors of others.

A special thank you is owed to Mile Pierce, facilities Director, who coordinated all of the numerous projects undertaken and completed.

The next annual Spring event, the free community youth Fishing Derby, will take place on May 6, 2017. A big thank you should also be given to everyone involved in this complex undertaking.

Separately, thanks to Tony Capone, who recently resigned as Director of Trap operations,  for the services he provided during his tenure in that position. Although a successor will eventually be

appointed I will temporarily assume the Trap Director's responsibilities.

I conclude this message by reminding all members that there is an implicit responsibility to volunteer to assist on the numerous additional projects scheduled during the remainder of 2017. Without your help those plans cannot succeed. Every Director, especially Steve Cooper, Community Relations Director, can use your help and their contact details can be found elsewhere in the club's Web site. Conversely, the monthly membership meetings offer an excellent opportunity for you to discuss in person with each Director their respective needs and how you might be helpful.

The next Membership meeting will be on May 11, 2017 at 7:30 PM preceded by dinner at 6:30 PM. As usual there will be a guest speaker that evening.

Dick Reichter, President​
