A large crowd showed up on Sunday June 28th to help celebrate our MEMBERSHIP APPRECIATION day. Well over 90 people were in attendance. Lots of Families were there to help us celebrate. It was a great day, the weather was dry for a change.
The grounds looked great , the clubhouse was very comfortable, and the folks seemed very happy with the way the club has handled itself. Burgers, hot odgs, baked beans, dessert, and lemonade or tea were served to all of our members. Lots of Door prizes and the Ruger raffle were held
I want to thank everyone who played a part in getting the day going. Amanda, Ralph, Ken, Jerry, Waylena, Ken, Tom, Mike, Jim, Jeff,Tricia, and anyone else I have forgotten. It takes a tremendous amount of labor (& love) to run the Foosland Sportsmens Club. I greatly appreciate all of you, and the work you all put in.

Thanks to the Champaign County Pheasants Forever, NWTF Piatt County Double Beards, and the Foosland Sportsmens Club for all of the support for this event.
My thanks also to Curt, Wendy, Tom, and Michael for the help in teaching these classes.
