OSTA STATE SHOOT
Willard Conservation League
Join us on
the President Jim Suttinger
Good People of OSTA,
Most of you know I cancelled the banquet on March 2. Because of the
weather my phone was blowing up that morning with folks who would not make it
because of the risk of bad roads. It was a necessary move because of the cost of
hall rental and everything that goes into the banquet. The banquet is for the
members and if they are not there it wouldn’t be much of
a banquet. I talked to Ed Jarvis, President of Apache Bowhunters, and they are
on board for allowing us to hold our banquet there during the April Shoot. We
will get started on Saturday night April 5th at 5pm with the Banquet
and do the awards about 6pm. We will have a short business meeting when we are
done with the awards. We are providing pulled pork sandwiches, drinks, and the
tableware that goes with it. I hate to ask this of you because I know so many of
you made stuff already but we will need side/main dishes and desserts from you.
Apache will allow us use of their kitchen for preparation. I was going to
announce at the banquet that this will be a two day shoot (April 5&6) with no
shooting fees for OSTA members. If you were planning on renewing your membership
at the banquet you can do so at this shoot and shoot for free. You can also mail
it in or do it on-line through the website beforehand.
I look forward to seeing you and yours at Apache Bowhunters.
Your President, Jim Suttinger

This is a
blog site sent to me by a very good friend from England, Wally Robson. We
met at Cloverdale a few years ago and he took some ideas back home and organized
this event to have the same fun with his "mates". Good to see how brothers
of the bow enjoy our
common love of archery across the pond.
