10/5/11 Through God’s Crosshairs

By

The January – March quarter of 2011 was a very good one for FCS. Our attendance was 152 people, which was our fourth best for this quarter (we missed tying our third best (last year) by one). We blew away what was our average for this quarter (93.00).

We had 15 events, which tied our third best for this quarter. We did not cancel any events.

We had five men join the Club, 12 members renew their memberships, and 18 first time guests!
