3rd Qtr 2010 – Club Results

By

We had a major improvement for the July through September quarter of 2010.  Our attendance was 153 people, which was our 3rd best for this quarter, and was 29 people ahead of last year’s attendance of 124.  If the Drott and Sullivan lease attendance was not counted in 2008 and 2006, we would have only had 147 and 89 for this quarter for those years respectively and this would have been our best attendance to date for that quarter.  We also significantly beat what was our average for this quarter (90.81).

We had 14 events, which tied our 4th best for this quarter.  The Dell Diamond cancelled their ‘Hunters and Shooters Night’ and Ducks Unlimited cancelled their ‘Fun Shoot’ (sporting clays shoot) or we would have had 16 events this past quarter.  If the Drott and Sullivan lease attendance was not counted in 2008, 2007, and 2006, we would have only had 12, 9, and 7 events for this quarter for those years respectively and this would have tied our best attendance to date for that quarter.

Our average number of attendees per event for this quarter was up significantly from 8.86 in 2009 to 10.93 in 2010.

We had one man join the Club, nine members renew their memberships, and eleven first time guests during this quarter.

We had one officers vote and one future supporting members poll during this quarter.
