ENF Shooting Matches
We have two shooting matches scheduled for this month. The first match was held Sunday, January 15th at Crazy Joe's Fish House and made over $1600 for ENF. The second match will be Sunday, January 29th at Shiloh Hill Tavern. Registration starts at noon. Only standard 12 gauge shotguns are allowed (no scopes or pucker guns - no choke smaller than .670). There will be raffles, 50/50 drawing, meat wheel, and free food. Volunteers are needed. For more information, contact Rick Ehlers at 618-534-1689. Proceeds go toward our ENF contribution. If we make our contribution goal, our Lodge will qualify for ENF grants we can use to help our local community.
