Nominations for the positions on the Executive Board of Directors will again be postponed until the Covid Restrictions will permit us to open in a way we can have a meeting either indoors or out, to address business issues. Your understanding, co-operation and assistance once opened will be greatly appreciated.

 

Constitution Changes

Again, the same as our nominations, we will be postponing the call for any changes to our Constitution. Should anyone have any suggestions on changes to our bylaws we can look at it anytime. There will be no changes to our Constitution for this time.

 

Big Pond Storage Shed

If anyone has noticed, we have a storage shed located up near the big pond. This shed has been cleared out and with thanks to Frank Hendereck it has become usable again for our Junior Club to store some of their fishing equipment in. Frank has put many hours in volunteering his time and resources towards this project, and it is greatly appreciated.

2021 Hunter Regulations Hard Copies

GBHA were graciously contacted by a local couple John and Shannon Moffitt who live in Tay Township that are partners and operate an outfitter company Buck Lake Lodges and Outposts. They are located out of Hornepayne where they offer fly-in fishing and moose hunts.  Shannon contacted us over Facebook and offered us 200 hard copies of 2021 Ontario Hunting Regulations. As most of us are aware, these are very difficult to find especially during a pandemic. We will be at the clubhouse on Saturday May 08 2021 from 11:00 till 12:00 am to hand these out to members whom maybe interested in coming to do a drive by and pick one up. Please stay in your vehicles and in line and we will come to your vehicle.  Please bring your 2021 membership card to verify your membership, this will be on a first come first serve basis. Thanks again to John and Shannon Moffitt for considering our club for these hard copies.

 

“Adopt-A-Road” Clean-up

With the current stay at home order set to expire in mid-May, we'd like to move forward with planning our annual clean up of Vindin Street in Midland on Saturday June 5th. We will meet 10 am, at the Armond Forget Auto Body parking lot located on Vinden street just before Hwy 93. This will take place rain or shine, so be sure to dress appropriately and bring gloves and any other equipment you think might be handy to have. Trash bags will be supplied.  

As with everything during this time, planning and logistics are very important. With this in mind, we ask that anyone interested in volunteering in any way, please contact Craig Lalonde in advance. Craig can be reached at (705)427-3542, or craiglalonde@hotmail.com

 

 

Editor’s Note:

 

We are hoping that after the Stay-At-Home order is lifted, we will be able to get a few volunteers out to the club to help clean up the yard and range areas. Please watch for notices on our website, Facebook page and emails. More hands make less work!

Stay Safe, Stay Well!
