2021 Children's Christmas Party

On December 12, we held a kids Christmas party for the children and grandchildren of our members. And a good time was had by all! There were crafts, coloring, and refreshments.  We even had a delicious cake made by Donna … that was (almost) too good-looking to eat! 

The star of the party was Santa Claus, of course. He took time out of his busy schedule to give presents to the children in attendance.  It was a small crowd of eighteen kids. 

This party would not have been possible without the capable assistance of member-volunteers. I would like to thank:  Frank Bleszinski, Bob Cochran, Steve Cooper, Natalie Medici, Kevin and Kim O’Leary, Talia Pasco, and Lee Anne Webb. 

Here’s hoping that everyone at ASC has a Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, and a Happy New Year!

Doug Cooper, Community Relations and Development 

President's Message (December 2021)

Dear Members:

Although uncertainties caused by the COVID virus and new variations continue to cause disruptions in certain key ASC areas such as the scheduling of certain training classes the year 2021 was nonetheless a highly successful year in every respect.

Although the number of Training Classes taught was substantially less than the 125 plus classes taught annually “before COVID" the classes that could be held were highly successful.

In addition, all pistol and rifle ranges offered a full schedule of activities throughout the year including a major increase in archery participation as a result of adding the excellent 24/7 all weather indoor range to the three-range archery complex.

 Project management accomplished an extraordinary number of more that 100 projects that serve to maintain ASC facilities at the highest level and initiated the development of new range facilities.

 We continue to support numerous local charities and participate in community activities in a manner that emphasizes our dedication of being widely known as a friendly, family oriented organization with an unrelenting dedication to education safety.

We were also able to offer an expanded number of member social events on virtually a monthly basis. 

We continue to receive a steady flow of new membership applicants and a continued enhancement of our sound financial posture.

It goes almost without saying that the number and content of the foregoing activities require a tremendous amount of voluntary time and dedication by your Board of Directors. 

In closing I must emphasize that although as much information as practical is published on the ASC web site the only way any member can have a full understanding of the club’s activates is to attend the monthly membership meetings.

On behalf of the Board of Directors we thank the membership for its support doing 2021 and look forward to an even more robust year in 2022.

We wish every ASC member your families a wonderful Christmas Holiday and a healthy and happy New Year

Dick Reichter, President

Gene Zalla  (member for 69 years) 

I am the Community Relations director and historian at the Andover Sportsmen's Club. Gene's son Steve was kind enough to reach out to me and share some of Gene's memories about his years at the club, including the fact that he used to walk to the club grounds (several miles from Ballardvale) and help with the construction of our rifle range. Gene was a stalwart at our fishing derbies. We at ASC appreciate Gene's efforts and they will not be forgotten. May he rest in Peace.
