Dear fellow Members, Landowners, Farmers:
We are writing to bring you up-to-date on the Associationís recent activities.
Landowners Appreciation Banquet
The landowners and members banquet will be held on April 7th at 5 PM at Crivelleroís Restaurant 1690
Morgan Hill Road. Please RSVP to Steve Warner no later than April 1st at (610) 252-8090. We are
looking for donations of door prizes; either prizes you wish to donate or solicit from donors.
Club Website & Facebook Page
The Raubsville Sportsmenís Association homepage can be found at http://www.raubsville.com/. The web page has up-to-date club notices and information, a photo gallery, announcements, links to many relevant hunting, fishing, outdoors and other interesting sites. You can also find the Raubsville Sportsmen's Association on Facbook.
Fish and Game Awards
Fish and Game trophy plaques and life membership cards will be awarded at the Banquet in April.
We want to take this opportunity to thank the Landowners and Farmers for the privilege of hunting their properties. We encourage the members to stop and talk to the Landowners when hunting their property. Reminders: No Turkey hunting at the McGovern/Pichel Farm; No trapping at Nehodaís.
All memberís tree stands must be removed from Horthís property two weeks after the deer season ends in January. All members should have their names on their tree stands.
Annual membership dues MUST be paid to Bill Rath by the April 12 meeting. However, the deadline
has been extended to May because we had changes in officers.
If you see property that needs posting, contact Jeff Grube for posters (610) 253-5961. Posters will be available at the April meeting and we would like to have land posted by the end of April for turkey season. New members are required by the by-laws to either: participate in land posting, delivery of fruit baskets in December, or boat ramp work detail.
A boat ramp pass is needed to use the boat ramp. The pass must be displayed in the vehicle. Please be courteous and abide by the boat ramp usage rules. Contact Rick Lavoie for a 2017 boat ramp pass and a copy of the rules. A boat ramp workday will be scheduled at the April meeting to clean up the boat
ramp. Contact Rick Lavoie if you are willing to help (908) 552-5084.
The annual ham drawing will be held at the March 8th meeting. Contact Mark Weidner for ham tickets (484) 256-2275. The club has been selling splatter boards for meat or cash prizes contact Bruce Rice (610) 838-0578 if you wish to sell a splatter board.
Junior Conservation School
The club sponsors a teenager between the ages of 14 and 17 years old to attend the Junior Conservation School July 15th-21st. If no memberís or landownerís or farmerís children or grandchildren apply, we will sponsor a student from the area not affiliated with the club. We would like to have applications by
the May 2018 meeting. The Conservation School needs adult volunteers to help with the camp (setting up tents or running various events during the day). Contact Bill Weidner if you can help (all help is appreciated). More information can be found at the Conservation School website: https://ncjcs.org/
Youth Pheasant Hunt
The club sponsored the 8th annual Steve Licenti Memorial youth pheasant hunt at Echo Hollow on November 5th. Special thanks to club member Mike Wagner for lending the use of his bird dogs from Dusty W. German Shorthairs and leading the kids through the day. Thanks to all of the members who worked, and made donations to make the day a success.
