Thank you to the 240 members who filled out the bottom of the sheet with their membership renewal form to help with club events. We appreciate you.

Attention Members we need your help. We are asking each and everyone of you to participate. We encourage you to attend the monthly membership meetings to participate in discussions or bringing new ideas to the table that will help generate income for the Association. With the rising cost of fuel and supplies and other items that we need, we need your help even more. Most of our operational cost like utilities, insurance is currently being consumed by membership dues, gun shows and block shoots. These events are becoming not enough revenue and at some point, it will cause us to consider raising our membership dues to offset our expenses. We take pride in keeping the cost of membership low compared to surrounding organizations. If we can get more involved, we could generate the necessary revenue to put back into the buildings and grounds, draw more of the public to participate at our events. To put another perspective on the participation efforts. Every year we have an appreciation banquet. This banquet is offsite and catered so that the invitees can sit down and enjoy and meal and comradery amongst other members. On average approximately 60 members are invited to this banquet. We are not asking for you to make East Berlin Fish and game your second home, we are just asking you to give us a few hours here or there. Lots of hands makes for little work. On a positive note, for all of you that do participate we again thank you for your time and dedication that you give.

President, Jason Trimmer
