RR&GC 2021 Memberships
Early this year, the Executive Board voted to transition our annual memberships from the current system (very labor intensive) to a calendar year format. Annual memberships for 2021 will be valid from the date of purchase until December 31, 2021. We will start selling 2021 memberships on December 1, 2020.
Per our Club Bylaws, the Executive Board must review and approve membership fees annually. The Board reviewed the current membership fee structure at the November, 2020 meeting. It was decided to have an annual family membership only. Premier memberships will not be available. The cost of an annual family membership will be $125 for 2021. Annual memberships will not be prorated during the year.
Holiday Meat Shoots
Holiday Meat shoots for 2020 have been cancelled.
The entire community, members and non-members, look forward to our annual holiday meat shoots which are generally held a week before Thanksgiving and Christmas. The wellbeing of all our members and visitors is our first priority. If you’ve been to our past meat shoots, you’ll remember how crowded the Trap facility becomes with people buying shoot tickets, picking up meat prizes and trying to keep warm by the wood stove. COVID-19 is still with us and seems to be increasing at a greater rate each week. I think you all realize how difficult it would be to maintain social distancing and enforce wearing masks.
The banquet for 2021 has been cancelled.
RR&GC always schedules our annual fund raiser, banquet and social night for the first Saturday in February. Once again, COVID-19 has forced us to change our plans. We normally have more than 200 guests and staff in attendance for our banquets. This has made it difficult or impossible to find and schedule a reasonably priced facility. Additionally, procuring firearms and ordering shooting or hunting related items for raffles and prizes is extremely difficult at the present time. I’m sure you all have found this out trying to buy ammo lately. Once again, the wellbeing of our members and visitors is our first priority.
