This years Wild Game dinner and elections were a great success!
Many volunteers worked to set up the facility, process member renewals, manage the raffles and door prizes, make award presentations, sell club themed merchandise, cook and serve the excellent dinner, run the elections, clean up, etc. Thanks to you all!

It has been a challenging year for NEKFGA. We expanded activities and
opened a range on the new property. We are currently working on a plan to
re-open DeZarn #4 on a controlled basis that protects our neighbors. We
successfully implemented a safety orientation for new members. We
negotiated a three year lease with the property owners that will require
contract compliance and timely payments. We improved our calendar and
web site so activities are more readily visible for members.
There have been some changes that affect club activities. ATVs are no
longer permitted on the property per our lease agreement. DeZarn #4 has
been closed for much of the year. New members have been helping spread
the word about safety rules among all of our members. Arrangements for
club usage by CCW classes have changed. We anticipate training more
range officers shortly. Basically, we have been moving forward with several
programs to increase safety and enforce safety rules among all people who
are using club resources. We ask everyone to abide by posted rules and be
safe with all activities on the property. We have a wonderful facility with all
kinds of possibilities. Work is underway by a dedicated few to develop our
new property in ways that will benefit the whole organization. Please take
part in the range development work group that meets the second Monday
each month at 6 pm. We have a lot of talent and ideas among our
membership that we need to tap as we grow and evolve. Get involved. We
need everyone to move us forward. A big thank you to everyone already
working for NEKFGA’s future.
