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

Respectfully,
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

Respectfully,
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​

Letter from the President - April 2017

My fellow members;

With at least a promise of Spring in the air there are many things we all look forward to when the weather finally permits and most certainly some of those things involve ASC.
 
As such, the focus of this message is to remind everyone that we are a club of volunteers and no matter how many things are planned if everyone is not willing to volunteer their assistance from time to time, few plans will ever become a reality.
 
I implore you to make it a practice to attend the monthly membership meetings and to read every Director’s monthly Website postings. During the meetings and  in the web site you will find references to the intended events to which I refer and for which  the importance of your volunteering  to assist cannot  be overstated,
 
With respect to the membership meetings we are, through the efforts of Steve Cooper, Community Relations Director, endeavoring to have a guest speaker at each meeting and to revive the always-fun auction table.
 
Let us all work together to make this the best Spring season possible at ASC
 
Dick Reichter, President​

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”.

Sincerely,
Dick Reichter, President
