Hunting season is approaching quickly. We have a $5.00 processing fee for anyone using the kitchen & club facilities for any kill that you have. Pay the bartender the day that you use the Club.
You are required to totally clean the kitchen & cooler areas. Please note that the facilities will not be available on Tuesday, December 3rd & Wednesday, December 4th, because the kitchen
will be needed for our Annual Dinner.
You may leave your deer hearts @ the Club.
Also make sure that you have plastic bags & trays when you are hanging anything in the cooler, because we offer that as a convenience (perk) to the members. You
are responsible for any cleanup.
The deer hide bucket will be near the pavilion. We use those hides to make gloves & other necessities for needy veterans. We coordinate this effort with the
