4/3/12 Through God’s Crosshairs

By

The January – March quarter of 2012 was a very good one for FCS. Our attendance was 108 people, which was our fifth best for this quarter. We blew away what was our average for this quarter (68.96). We had 16 events, which tied our second best for this quarter. We would have had 20 events but we canceled three self-guided hog hunts (no place to go) and a guided upland bird hunt (rained out).

We had seven members renew their memberships and one first time guest.

We conducted one officer vote.
