A few items came up during the Monday Board of Directors meeting that was also then brought to the D.R. Wilson meeting on Wednesday. I’m taking the opportunity to bring this to your attention now as we need to get right onto these.
1. The club as a whole depends heavily on member volunteers to run our programs and keep the club in business. We need to do something to let people know when help is needed and where, and we are looking for suggestions. Email blasts get limited response, and those I send are only going to D.R. Wilson members, where help from any club members could help for most general opportunities. Perhaps central volunteer/opportunity lists could be maintained by the office or posted online somehow. We have to do something.

2. We need to encourage greater use of the bar and restaurant. Any time we have events going on, please encourage the participants to use our facility rather than heading out to the bars and restaurants up and down Dixie Highway or elsewhere. We have new cooks in the kitchen, and the food is better and cheaper than most of the other nearby locations. Sure, alcohol is prohibited before and during your shooting, but is fine afterward. “Shots ‘N Shoot” NO, “Shoot ‘N Shots” YES.
3. New name for the Bar & Restaurant. We NEED one! The “Oakland County Sportsman’s Club Bar etc.” is just way too long, and confusing a name. People keep confusing us with the “Sportsman’s Great Northern Bar and Grill” down the road at Dixie Hwy and Waterford Rd. We are looking for suggestions.
