We do reserve the right to change the guns offered based upon availability and this is not necessarily the order in which they will be drawn/awarded.
Range Clean-Up Day
July 25 is our next scheduled range clean-up day. If you are ready, willing and able to help us continue improvements to the clubhouse and range, please plan to show up. We will be having a barbecue lunch for all those willing to get their hands dirty.
We are looking for volunteers for: painting the fence, brass clean-up and sorting (this funds the scholarships), shooting bench and target stand repair, installation of new clubhouse lighting and ceiling repair, shed and range clean up. We will begin around 9:00 and continue until about 5:00. There will be a barbecue and brush-burn bonfire. If you are interested in helping with any of these items, please let us know. It was requested too that if anyone has old, but still working, water garden hoses that they no longer need and would like to donate to the club, we could use those to keep the brush fire under control. And just to have on hand in the event of an emergency. Please note that the range will be closed to shooting during this time so please plan your outings accordingly.
EOC Offers a $500 Scholarship
Making a commitment to enter a Law Enforcement or Wildlife Management career in any capacity is an honorable and selfless endeavor that shows true dedication to community service and deserves to be recognized. The Enfield Outing Club acknowledges that dedication.
Therefore, it would be our honor and privilege to award a $500 scholarship to a 2020 high school graduate who is pursuing a degree in some form of a Law Enforcement or Wildlife Management career field (i.e. Forestry, Game Warden, Marine Biology, Law Enforcement, etc.)
Since the school was unable to promote this due to the COVID-19 interruption, we will be accepting applications for consideration directly. If you are interested in applying, please contact Peg Howard to obtain an application. She can be reached at: firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com, or 603-523-7677.
Elections are Coming
All EOC positions are open for election including President, Vice President, Secretary, Treasurer, Chief Range Safety Officer, and the six Board of Director positions. Only self nominations are accepted. Nominees will have a chance to speak at the August meeting (8/12) and elections will be concluded at the October meeting.
All positions are for a 4 year term. There are no prerequisites or qualifications for any of the positions with the exception of the Chief Range Safety Officer. That position requires that you are a currently certified NRA Range Safety Officer in good standing.
If you would like to run for an elected position or have any questions regarding the specific duties for a position, etc. please send an email to Jake Fowler, Election Manager, at firstname.lastname@example.org with your name and position you wish to run for.
Volunteers are Needed
1) We are looking for volunteers to help with the Friends of NRA Banquet on 9/20 this year.
2) Also looking for volunteers interested in serving on the Annual Children's Christmas Party Committee.
If you are interested in helping with either, please get in touch with Peg at email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org or 603-523-7677.
In The News
Being there for the community has always been part of the Enfield Outing Club's mission, whether acknowledged or not. But sometimes, it's nice when someone does notice. Massad Ayoob did just that with his 4/24/20 blog in Backwoods Home Magazine. If you have a moment, please take a look to see what he had to say about the EOC.
Thank you Massad for your kind words and support.
