Welcome our new members: Robert Lakstigala, Dan Tromblee, Robert Meyer, Hiram Oliversa, and Thomas Graham.

Archery: We are in the process of setting up an archery shooting program for our members. Full details to come later. If you would like to give input, please contact Ken Casler at

Trudeau Big Buck Contest: A chairman is needed. This is a small event and once it is set up, very easy to administer. Please contact Jim Jones if you are interested. This is one of the oldest events for our club. Please be the one to step up to keep it alive.

I want to sincerely thank everyone who assisted in making this a successful event. The event raised a little over $6000.00. These funds pay the major expenses for keeping the facilities open.

POT LUCK COMING BACK TO THE CLUB:Beginning October 7, 2016 our club will re-start a long lost tradition of the POT LUCK SUPPER. We are doing this in the hopes of revitalizing what our club is all about, camaraderie and sharing with our members and guests. Our common interests can easily overflow into a once a month get together where we can share food and information. Okay, maybe some wine or beer too! LOL

What are we asking you do? First, please make a point to attend the event, without you we are losing out. Second, bring a dish to share. Ideas for you to bring, include main dishes, stews, vegetables, bread, rolls and/or desert. If you like, bring your favorite wine or beer. I suggest you make dishes that would normally serve your own family. We should have plenty to go around.

The club will provide plates, utensils, napkins, coffee, and other non-alcoholic drinks. In addition we will have a very short presentation of on goings at the club and what our future will bring. It will be a good evening and we look forward to seeing you.

When: October 7
Where: Saranac Lake Fish and Game Club
