Club Champion 2023-2024 Trevor Smith

At the AGM it was incorrectly announced the new Club Champion was Derek Street. This was incorrect due to a counting error, for which I sincerely apologise.

My apologies also go to Trevor Smith. Trevor now retains the title of Club Champion and the cup will be returned to Trevor at the next shoot.

Thank you

Many thanks to all those who stayed after the shoot to help clear away. It made a huge difference and we got cleared away in record time. Your assistance is always appreciated even though it might not have been said at the time.

Thank you as well to everyone who helped set up.

Apologies

Our apologies for the lateness in issuing the Christmas shoot handicap prizes. I hope all those who attended Sunday’s shoot have received their prize. If not, please mention it when you pay at the next shoot.

Updates

Over the past few months, we have been experiencing a few battery failures. It was discovered that not all the batteries were being charged due to loose connections. This has now been rectified with thanks to JD. We have also purchased 6 new heavy-duty batteries suitable for the traps. This now gives us a few spares should the need ever arise. We have also experienced some controllers failing. These have been replaced with new ones.

One of our members asked why the membership fees had increased, and whether it should have been voted on and approved by the membership.

The membership fees have always been matched to cover the costs of insurance and land rent. I am sure everyone has experienced the increase in insurance over the past couple of years and we also expect an increase in land rent as we have not seen a rise in the past 5 years. Regarding membership voting, this only applies to the election of the committee. The committee you elected meet up and makes all decisions regarding the running of the club. Club matters are discussed and voted upon during these meetings and throughout the year. Only items that get the majority vote are passed for action. The committee will always welcome any observations, ideas and constructive criticism. Your comments on how your committee can improve the club are appreciated as always and we are always looking for more committee members.

Reminders

Shooting now starts at 10.00 am. There will be an exception at the next shoot due to holding the AGM before starting.

Member fees for rejoining or wishing to join were due at the end of March. There will be a grace period until the end of April. Thank you to all who have rejoined.

We hope to see you at the next shoot.

We Need Your Help!

Dear Members,

As a not-for-profit volunteer-run shooting club, it is incumbent upon the membership to help out when they can.

Some of you already do this during the set-up by loading clays, setting up the cages and setting out the layout. Thank you.

Everyone helps by breaking down the cages and taking the bins back to the clubhouse at the end of the shoot and we are very grateful for your help. However, I know in the past, this is all we have asked of you – but now we need a little more.

At the end of each shoot, it takes at least 5-6 people to pack away quickly and efficiently. Recently, there have been as few as 2 people packing away and this takes hours. This is not sustainable and unfair on those left to clear up.

We believe we have 2 choices:

Option 1)

More members to help clear away. We need at least 2 volunteers, preferably more, to supplement the committee members who are in attendance. These volunteers will be asked to drive the buggies and collect the traps to take back to the containers. The traps will be loaded into the containers by the committee or other volunteers.  They will also be needed to collect the cages and stands. Easy work – it only takes a little effort and about 30-40 minutes of your time.

Please note, that when you volunteer, it is only for that day’s shoot. We are not looking for you to commit for the whole year. With 50 members regularly shooting, it will only require each of you to volunteer once or twice per year. I believe this is a reasonable request to keep the club going.

To ensure we have enough volunteers, please state on your booking form in the ‘comments’ section, that you can help clear away. If we do not get at least 2 volunteers, it leaves us with option 2.

Option 2)

This will only occur if we don’t get volunteers to sign up to help clear away. Regretfully, we will have to cancel that week’s shoot. This is not an option any of us wants to do. To ensure there is enough time to evaluate if we have enough volunteers and advise membership accordingly, we will be closing the shoot bookings on a Wednesday night. This way, if we don’t have the numbers, those who have booked will be informed on a Thursday.

All of us like to shoot and a volunteer-led club is the only way to survive and to keep costs down. Please help your club and volunteer.

Please let us know if you have any comments or suggestions.

With kind regards from The HansonCPC Committee

Committee Members Needed

This is a not-for-profit shooting club run by volunteers.

Over the past couple of years, we have struggled to get volunteers to join the committee (an ageing committee). A committee is vital for any club to survive, without a committee to carry out the administrative duties, there is no club.

Being on the committee does not mean you have to be at every shoot, it does not mean you have to set up or pack away after every shoot. What it does do, is allow you to give your suggestions for improvement, opinions and vote on how the club is run. Yes, there are some duties to perform, but these are voluntary and some duties are just alternates should another committee member not be available at the time due to holidays, etc.

There are not many duties to carry out and we only convene a committee meeting 2 to 3 times in the year. As a small incentive, we give all committee members free membership after serving their first year and each year after that while serving on the committee.

If you want to join, please contact any existing committee member or shout out at the next AGM.
