Membership renewal

Greetings, Membership! This email is required reading, so please take a few moments…:)

Four Point’s membership year runs from Sept 1st to Aug 31st. We have begun our annual renewal drive with a mailing to each of your home addresses (with the exception of those who have joined since June 1st). Please be on the look-out, and we encourage you to renew as soon as possible to enjoy uninterrupted membership with Four Point Rod & Gun Club.

Those who joined PRIOR TO JUNE 1st : Please follow the instructions stated in the letter you receive to renew, including full completion of the Membership Application (check “Renewal”), re-affirmation of our Safety and Operating Rules on the backside of the app, and payment of dues. If you leave a field blank that previously contained data, the data we have on file will be cleared. For example, if you omit an email address, your email address will be cleared from our records and you will no longer receive email from us. You may either mail a check OR renew in person at the clubhouse by cash, check, or credit card.

Those who joined SINCE JUNE 1st: You will NOT receive a mailing, as the membership you applied for includes the following year and your dues are paid. You will be included in the NEXT renewal drive for the 2019-2020 membership year.

LIFE MEMBERS: You’ll receive the same mailing as everyone else. Although no dues are required, please complete and return a renewal form so that we can keep your information current. Complete the form in its entirety and re-affirm the safety and operating rules, as well.

ALL MEMBERS WITH PAID DUES THROUGH 8/31/19 will need to obtain:

A new range badge. You DO NOT need to take another certification course. New badges are available and can be traded in at any time upon verification of renewal.
A new key. The gate and trap and skeet house locks are changed on SEPT 1st. You’ll be notified when new keys become available prior to that date. We ask that you trade in your old key. However, if you intend to access the property prior to the lock change, we’ll assign you a new key but ask that you return your old key at a later date.

If you renew by mail, please allow at least two weeks for our records to be updated before you pick up a new key and/or badge. RENEWAL MUST BE VERIFIED AT THE CLUBHOUSE IN ORDER TO ASSIGN NEW KEYS AND BADGES. I am unable to confirm receipt of payment, so please don’t ask me…sorry…:)

If, for whatever reason, you do not receive a renewal form in the mail, you are still responsible for renewing before the 8/31 deadline.

ALL RENEWAL DUES MUST BE PAID BY AUG 31ST. Otherwise, you will have to re-join as a new member and re-pay the $50 initiation fee.

Please read the letter you receive in your renewal mailing carefully and let any of the officers and directors know if you have any questions. Here’s to another great year! Thanks for your cooperation and continued membership and support!

Regards,

Wendy Suhanov

Member Appreciation Day

Four Point’s Annual MEMBER APPRECIATION DAY will be held on Saturday May 26th from 12 noon til ?. Every year, we’re pleased to offer a discounted day for our members! We’ll have reduced trap and skeet shooting prices for $2 per round (purchase tokens at the bar the day of the event for use that day only). Check in at the bar upon your arrival on the day of the event to purchase discounted food and beer tickets for draft beers and ham or hot platters!

There will be a tent with tables and chairs for outdoor seating. Your guests are welcome! Please feel free to bring some outdoor games for your kids or grandkids to enjoy during our picnic-style day at the club! Be armed with dollar bills for 50/50 raffles! If we can get some volunteers, perhaps we can get some organized shotgun games going for cash prizes, as well!

Four Point is a fantastic club, and we have our Four Point members to thank for it. Please come and enjoy the day with us!

Shotgun Patterning Day

From Director Jeff Newhouse:

4PT Members–
A few years back, the Board of Directors decided, due to its misuse, to remove the large steel plate that was located next to Trap Field 2 that was being used as a patterning board for shotguns. On April 21st from 11 am to 3pm, we will be hosting a patterning day located next to Trap field 2 for members to come and pattern their shotguns. Members will supply the targets or paper and ammo for which they wish to pattern their guns with, and there will be two target holders to affix them to. Normally we don’t allow anything larger than 7-1/2 shot, however, for this day at this temporary venue only, anything up to BB will be allowed. This means, for this day only, turkey, waterfowl, and bird hunters, skeet and trap shooters can come and pattern their guns at 4 Point at the distance of your choosing.

Range Guest Policy

Greetings, Membership! As you know, the Range Guest Policy changed on Mar 1, 2018.

The guest fee was increased to $5.00 per person, per visit, and the maximum number of guests per member, per visit, is now restricted to 2. Cash payment is to be made to the guest fee box located on the wall of the pavilion using the provided envelopes on which the date and guest name are required to be noted. The member and his/her guest(s) are to occupy one station only, with the guest(s) under constant supervision of the member certified to use the range. Guests are never to be unsupervised under any circumstances, as they have not been certified to use the range, nor are they to visit the range without a certified member. Guests are also required to sign in, noting the member they are accompanying.

Four Point’s Officers and Directors continue to evolve the club’s rules and regulations to protect the safety of its members and the value of your membership. Please let any of the board members know if you have any questions or concerns, and we thank you for your cooperation.

Trap Field Closure and Request for Help

Trap Field Closure and Request for Help

We are in need of the commitment of some volunteers for an upcoming trap league being hosted at Four Point:

Inland Waters Trap League Apr 7-8 Sat and Sun 9am-3pm

Please consider helping out with loading houses, picking up shells, and scoring. If you can/will give a day or two, or even as little as a couple hours of your time, it’s always appreciated, and we’ll feed you, as the kitchen will be serving up both breakfast and lunch.

The trap fields will be closed to the general membership during league hours specified.

Please email League Coordinator Guy Slack at gohunt@rochester.rr.com with questions, interest in learning to referee, or your commitment to volunteer as soon as possible. Much thanks in advance.
