We will be having the banquet on Sunday, March 8th
at the Cardinal Center.***** The original date
had been the 7th which was a Saturday but it was brought to my
attention recently that the banquet has always been on Sunday so it was changed
to the Sunday date. Please remember
to pay for any unpaid items that were purchased at the kids auction during the
banquet. Cabin rentals are
available at the Cardinal Center for a discounted rate of $85 per night which
includes access to the indoor swimming pool.
Contact the Cardinal Center for reservations. We will begin at 11 a.m. with a
social hour followed by lunch at 12.
OSTA will provide the meat, drinks and table ware. Please bring your favorite side
dishes and deserts. Following the
meal we will have a business meeting, membership bow drawing and shooter of the
year presentations. Hopefully, the
weather will not hinder us this year but in the event there is weather in the
area please do the following in this order, check the OSTA web page first, our
Facebook page secondly or contact me by phone or text at 740-648-5493. In the event weather causes us to
cancel, we plan on holding the banquet at the fun shoot on the second weekend of
April at Apache in Lockbourne. I
hope to see you all at Cardinal Center.
