Analysis

Included were events attendance and averages from 2016 plus a comparison with the past four years, as applicable. Although we had 122 fewer attendees in 2016, we also had 13 fewer events (the reasons for the cancellations were included).  The biggest drops were in our dove hunts, self-chartered bass fishing trips, meetings, and self-guided duck hunts attendance.  We had three fewer dove hunts this year than last, due to a lack of birds.  This dropped our attendance by 52.  Meetings were down by 15.  Self-guided duck hunts and self-chartered bass fishing trips were down 13 and 27 respectively, as Randy Rowley was busy house hunting and was not able to lead as many trips.  With the exception of meetings, which have been on a downward trend, there are no concerns.
