This year Woodwise has donated a $100.00 to the winner for biggest fish. All kids 16 and under will have a prize. Remember, Woodwise has donated money to stock the river this year.

NYS Conservation Council Report: (per Charlie Parker NYS Conservation Council President)

 

The federation report stated the need for every sportsmen to support the New York State Conservation Council.  The “Council” is the oldest Sportsmen / Conservation groups that advocates for mainly for the New York State Sportsmen and Conservationists.  The Mad River Club is a strong supporter but we as individual sportsmen can do more.  There are two options that all should consider.  One is becoming a Guardian or Defender Member.  The other is for those that use Amazon. Sign up through Amazon Smile and select the New York State Conservation Council as a recipient, and for each purchase you make using Amazon Smile, a portion is donated to the NYS Conservation Council.  For information on either of the above ways to support the Council go to  http://www.nyscc.com/_index.php   NYSCC CONSERVATION EDUCATION COMMITTEE INVITES SPORTSMEN AND WOMEN INPUT At the recent NYSCC annual Spring/Legislative meetings in Herkimer, Conservation Education Committee chair Keith Tidball announced plans to survey hunters, anglers, trappers, and other outdoor recreationalists regarding their preferences for what specific issues or topics the committee should direct their focus upon. The survey is intended for wide distribution; all county federation members, sportsmen’s club members, and those interested in the out-of-doors are encouraged to participate. Here is the link to the web-based survey: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/LBQKCSC   The ability to follow legislation concerning sportsmen can be a tedious and sometimes boring task.  But it is still important that we be aware, as best we can as to what is gong on in Albany Fortunately the New York State Conservation Council does a lot of the “following” for you. With the Council’s website much of that information is easily available to you.  Just go to http://www.nyscc.com/legislativeinformation.html or http://www.nyscc.com/legislativeinformation/memoandstatements.html and you can follow legislative bills and the current positions that the NYSCC has taken on various bills.   REMEMBER SUPPORT THE COUNCIL     Chuck Parker     One of the recent bills that was mentioned at the Last MRC Meeting was   MEMORANDUM IN OPPOSITION Bill #  S 7874   Kaminsky     No same as Title: Limits educational institution’s ability to authorize the possession of a weapon on school grounds to certain officers or agents of a law enforcement agency. This is a terrible bill that the Council strongly opposes. Fortunately at this time it is only a one house bill.  Visit http://www.nyscc.

IMPORTANT RULES AND REGS CHANGE CONCERNING 4 WHEELERS:

 

Under Section 18 paragraph C the following will now be the rules concerning 4 wheeler usage on the club property:

 

  1. Each member may have one ATV with One guest with one ATV. A Members spouse may have one ATV with one guest with one ATV.

ALONG WITH THIS RULE CHANGE REMEMBER THAT THE GLAN AVE BRIDGE MUST BE USED BY ALL 4 WHEELERS. DO NOT CROSS THE STREAM WITH A WHEELER PER LANDOWNER REQUEST. PEOPLE HAVE BEEN RACING THROUGH THE WATER WHICH UPSETS THE STREAM BED. PERSONNEL VEHICLES CAN BE USED TO CROSS BY GOING SLOW.

 

SECURITY CHANGES FOR THE PROPERTY: Woodwise is requiring all vechicles have a blue Woodwise sticker on their vehicles. This includes 4 wheelers, UTVs and personnel vehicles. Security chairmen Mike Lane and John Malinowski said if you cannot make a meeting to get the stickers then you can send them a Self Addressed Stamped Envelope (SASE) to either of the following addresses and they would be mailed to you. Please note: you must include a copy of the vechicles registration along with the SASE to receive a sticker:

NOTICE OF LAND OWNER REQUESTS: The landowners are insisting that 4 wheelers use the bridge over Cold Brook (on Glan ave) instead of going through the water. Apparently some people are going full speed through the brook causing some damage. Trucks can pass through the stream because they are going much slower. Also, apparently someone let a DEC officer on the club land. The landowners DO NOT want anyone letting DEC on the property. If you are approached by a DEC officer please contact Dave Dano, Dick Palmer or Gary Crawford and they will contact the landowners.

 

EDITORIAL: As newsletter editor I am beginning my request to all members to go paperless on the newsletter. I am shooting for January1st, 2018 to stop sending out the newsletter. I would very much like to see everyone use the website. The website contains a lot of club information along with the newsletters. Please note that the newsletters are archived on the website. If we were to go paperless this would save the club approximately $1000.00 a year in postage cost. I understand some people have reservations about using a computer but we need to make an effort to change. Remember the webpage is: madriverclub.com

John Wilk is still at St. Lukes waiting to go home.

HOT TOPIC FOR THE CLUB: The club discussed the possibility of dropping both the Williamstown property and the Lafayette property. The reasons had to do with price of the lease and the hunting value of the land. The Lafayette property has some neighbors that are attempting to put in a race track just to the north of the property. Along with this the landowner has put up some buildings and has fenced off some of the land which makes it somewhat hard to hunt. There were some members at the meeting that felt strongly that the Williamstown property was not worth the price we are paying. So at the October meeting the club will vote on these properties. Please note that a separate mailing is going out to make sure all members are made aware of these potential changes.

 

 

BYLAWS CHANGE: The following bylaws change was presented to the membership:

 

4A.     BUDGET

 

  1. Financial Committee shall present a financial budget to the membership at the September general meeting.

 

  1. The president has access up to $1500.00 each fiscal year for emergency funding to pay for club business. The Club Officers and Board Members must be notified immediately of the expense.

 

Motion was made and accepted to pass the Bylaw change as written.

 

STATUS CHANGE FOR THE NEWSLETTER : A motion was made to make the MRC Newsletter the official publication of the Mad River Club. The motion was approved and voted to approve this motion. This means that for club news and updates, members will need to read the newsletter. As a reminder, the newsletter will go paperless in January. This is being done for monetary purposes and convenience of the membership. As the newsletter editor gets news between meetings, the updates can be posted to the website. So please take a minute to check the website and look at the information there.

 

Madriverclub.com

 

AVANGRID Open House: There will be two open houses to discuss the windmill project. The first one is Wednesday, September 20th, 2017 from 2-4 pm and 6-8 pm located at the Lorraine Fire Hall, which is located at 20876 County Route 189

The second open house is Thursday, September 21st, 2017 from 2-4 pm and 6-8 pm which will is located at the Redfield Fire Hall which is located at 4879 County Route 17.

 

The clubs future could be impacted by the outcome of this project so we need to have a good MRC membership showing. Thanks

 

MRC WEBPAGE: A reminder to club members to subscribe to the webpage. There are no subscription fees. As a subscriber to the website you will automatically be sent an update message so you can be made aware of any club news updates. As I get information from the board between meetings I post it to the webpage.

 

Budget for 2018: The budget was approved for 2018. The membership will increase from 275 full dues members to 300 full dues members. After some discussion, it was voted and approved to increase the number from 275 to 300 members for a three-year period. After three years the club will decide via member vote to stay at 300 or reduce back to 275. The reduction would be done through normal attrition. The club tends to lose between 20 to 30 members each year so we would not be bringing in new members to maintain the 300 level.

 

NOTICE OF LAND OWNER REQUESTS: The landowners are insisting that 4 wheelers use the bridge over Cold Brook (on Glan ave) instead of going through the water. Apparently some people are going full speed through the brook causing some damage. Trucks can pass through the stream because they are going much slower. Also, apparently someone let a DEC officer on the club land. The landowners DO NOT want anyone letting DEC on the property. If you are approached by a DEC officer please contact Dave Dano, Dick Palmer or Gary Crawford and they will contact the landowners.

 

EDITORIAL: As newsletter editor I am beginning my request to all members to go paperless on the newsletter. I am shooting for January1st, 2018 to stop sending out the newsletter. I would very much like to see everyone use the website. The website contains a lot of club information along with the newsletters. Please note that the newsletters are archived on the website. If we were to go paperless this would save the club approximately $1000.00 a year in postage cost. I understand some people have reservations about using a computer but we need to make an effort to change. Remember the webpage is: madriverclub.com

 

ANNUAL GUN RAFFLE: The drawing is underway for the raffle. Greg Maselli said 999 tickets were sold. Justin Maselli sold 90 tickets and was awarded the $250.00 gift card to Sharpshooters. The winner of the gun is Harry Crowell.

You can call Greg Masselli at 315-952-1624 or email gmaselli@comfortsystemsusa.com with any questions.

 

A ROUND OF APPLAUSE FOR THE FOLLOWING MEMBERS: The members listed below have taken charge of a club event and made them into a successful and fun event. These events take a large amount of time and energy to make happen. I know there are others out there that have contributed to the club on a large scale. If other members know of someone that should be recognized please forward the newsletter editor an email or call and that person will be recognized.

 

BILL KILLAM: Bill is in charge of the Archery event each year and it seems that the event gets bigger each year. Bill works throughout the year to make this event happen. This year the event brought in over $9000.00 to the club. Bill made it a point to thank all those who helped him make this event happen but without Bill’s dedication this event would not occur.

 

STEVE CORSETTE: Steve puts on the 4-wheeler event. He cooks the chickens and his helpers get the tables and awnings up to allow us to have quite a party on the club. This takes a considerable amount of work and Steve has made this event one of the best attended events.

 

GREG MASELLI: Greg has been running the gun raffle. This is a daunting task as it involves getting the guns, getting the lottery tickets ready calling people who win, keeping track of a 1000 tickets and other things. This is a major moneymaker for the club, which helps keep our dues low.

 

DARIEN BROCK: Darien took on the task of setting up the family picnic this year. We have not had one in several years so this was a great event for the club. It was well attended by over 100 people and the food was outstanding. Everyone seemed to have a great time and went away well fed and happy. Darien is also the Camp For Kids chairman.

 

JOE IAUCO: Joe has run the Kids Trout Fishing Derby for years. This has been a great opportunity for the kids and their families get together outdoors and enjoy some fishing and good food at the club.

 

Gary Granger: Gary has stepped up to help organize the traphouse and get a league together. Gary has given out reports each meeting on the status of our traphouse and the requirements we have to join a league. There remains much to do and Gary is moving things along to get us into a league.

 

 

 

 

 

Oswego County Federation report: Ken Burd is stepping down from the Federation board. If anyone is interested in becoming part of the Federation board please contact Chuck Parker.

Also, Chuck reminded the club the Oswego County Fair is in August and he is looking for volunteers to man the Federation booth. If you want to man the booth please call 315-427-8316.

Charlie had a chance to be on hand to listen to Governor Cuomo speak about sportsman and the affairs of New York state conservation. The governor did say that sportsman are the best conservationist as they spend more time afield then most people. Not many bills affecting our sport have been acted on recently so we as sportsman need to push our legislators to step up and get these bills moving.

Trap house: Gary Granger said there are 5 people so far on the trap committee. So far things are moving ahead to start a trap league next year.

 

WINDMILL PROJECT: The board presented what came out of the recent meeting with the windmill project. It appears that the town of Redfield has some zoning concerns and these will be addressed through legal means. The project is expected to move forward sometime in 2019 with the construction of the windmills. There are still questions to be answered such as right of way for transmission lines and zoning issues, so nothing is a sure thing yet. But the windmill people have assured the board that they are willing to work with the club so we can both use the property. They do not want to see us lose our lease of the lands. Please follow Facebook for any further updates from the club.

 

Security : If you want to set up a security workday please contact John Malinowski 315-657-7780 or Mike Lane 315-558-0888. Please follow the website as it will be posted when the gates are open for vehicle traffic. May 1st is the target date but we need landowner permission before we open the gates to all traffic.

 

Archery Raffle: Bill Killam discussed the Archery Raffles. Up for raffle are a nice Matthews’s bow, a custom fishing rod, and a tree stand.

 

Hunter safety class: A class is being set up for August 19th. Please check the DEC website for information and homework needed to complete the class.

 

Change of Address: If you have a change of address, phone number, or email please let the club know. You can contact the newsletter editor Shawn Allen or the Financial Secretary Rachael Pitkin. We have been having problems with being able to contact people.

 

Camp for Kids: Darien Brock said he has 7 kids set up for this year’s Camp for Kids, but needs people to send in their applications for next year. So far he has 4 kids on the waiting list for 2018.

EDITORIAL: As newsletter editor I am beginning my request to all members to go paperless on the newsletter. I am shooting for January1st, 2018 to stop sending out the newsletter. I would very much like to see everyone use the website. The website contains a lot of club information along with the newsletters. Please note that the newsletters are archived on the website. If we were to go paperless this would save the club approximately $1000.00 a year in postage cost. I understand some people have reservations about using a computer but we need to make an effort to change. Remember the webpage is: madriverclub.com

 

ANNUAL GUN RAFFLE: The drawing will start September 1st 2017. All members, this is a major fundraiser for the club so we need to have all members participate.

If there is a tie the money will be split.

 

Annual Trout Derby: The derby will take place on June 24th. Joseph Iauco is the chairman for this event. I talked to Joe about this event and he encourages everyone to bring out their young outdoor enthusiasts and catch some fish. Joe said people should just go out and fish anywhere in the area and come back to the clubhouse with their catch between 12:00 and 12:30 for measurements. He said prizes will be awarded to all participants and dinner of hotdogs, salad and drinks will be provided by the club. Sounds like a good time for all. Any questions please call Joseph Iauco at 487-7193.

 

Oswego County Federation report: Chuck Parker said there are many items on the table for our representatives to consider. Please check out the Oswego County Federation website to gain information about some of the issues concerning sportsmen/sportswomen.

Also, Chuck reminded the club the Oswego County Fair is in August and he is looking for volunteers to man the Federation booth.

Windmill Information: Two members from the Mad River windmill project attended the meeting to give members an update on the project and take questions from the membership. The project reps talked about the met towers going up and the plans for the windmills. Final numbers of windmills will be determined by the met data they receive over the next two years. At most they said there would be about 100 windmills involved in this project. The power lines will be run south out of the property on overhead lines to meet up with existing 345 kv towers about 20 miles to the south. The total height of the towers and blades will be around 500 feet. The land around the tower will be cleared and accessible. Some members are already suggesting opportunities for food plots. The project will be upgrading the roads and providing additional access to some areas of the property to allow crane access. They said tower construction might begin by May of 2019. The project reps said they would return at the September Mad river club meeting to discuss the progress of the project.

Deer Report: There was very little deer report given at this past meeting. All members need to be aware that our lease land prices have gone up considerably. At some point we may have to make some hard decisions regarding what lands to keep. This would be a lot easier if people would speak up and let the club know which lands are the best for hunting and fishing.

SPECIAL NOTICE: DUE TO GOOD FRIDAY WE ARE RESCHEDULING THE APRIL GENERAL MEETING TO FRIDAY, APRIL 7TH. THE BOD MEETING WILL BE MARCH 31ST

 

 

 

NYSCC REPORT: Chuck Parker gave us an update on the Kendall Tract land that was part of the
Stave Mills Sportsman’s Club. Chuck described how this land had changed hands several times over the years and, as one of our long term members pointed out, without the knowledge of the Stave Mills club. Luckily for the Stave Mills club they were able to keep their clubhouse and purchase 5 acres around the clubhouse. Chuck Parker pointed out that it took considerable effort to keep this club alive. Chuck has consistently asked people to stay informed and get involved, even if its just writing to your representatives. Make no mistake; we could lose our lease lands. Chuck urged people to subscribe to the Grass Roots News so people can stay informed. For more information you can go to

www.nyscc.com and use PayPal to join or you can get a copy of the Grass Roots News for an application.

 

MRC Elections: This is a reminder that the club elections are coming up at the April 7th general meeting. There are many positions that need to be filled. We have 3 board positions open and many officers want to step down. Nominations for these positions will close at the March meeting. Please get involved. This is a great way to learn how this club operates and to help keep it going.

MRC WEBPAGE: A reminder to club members to subscribe to the webpage. There are no subscription fees. As a subscriber to the website you will automatically be sent an update message so you can be made aware of any club news updates. As I get information from the board between meetings I post it to the webpage.

 

Deer Report: There was very little deer report given at this past meeting. All members need to be aware that our lease land prices have gone up considerably. At some point we may have to make some hard decisions regarding what lands to keep. This would be a lot easier if people would speak up and let the club know which lands are the best for hunting and fishing.

 

EDITORIAL : Several board members are stepping down this year as they have been in these positions for many years. Most have been actively involved in the club in various capacities for many years. We have many new members. Between Gold, ½ dues members and full dues members, we have almost 400 people in this club. So we should be able to have someone step up. As noted above, the Ice fishing derby was cancelled because we cannot get anyone to chair it. This is a loss of revenue to the club of between $1000 to 2000 dollars. People stepping down this year are Mark Bishop (Secretary), Kent Taber (1st VP). The newsletter editor would also like to step down. These are just some examples of positions we need to fill. Along with this, we are having a very hard time filling various event chairs. We have not had a family picnic in years due to no interest in someone organizing it. The Annual Awards banquet needs a chair. The Christmas party needs a chair. These are just some examples that are out there waiting. If you really enjoy this club then we need to have some new people step up and take an interest in keeping this club going. Elections are coming up in April so please think about helping the club and take an active part in keeping it going. If interested in any position you can contact any board member to submit your name.

 

ITEMS OF INTEREST:

 

Workdays:

It’s a new year and there will be plenty of opportunities to get in a workday this year. Dale Maclen (Build & ground chair) said there will be plenty of work to go around. As workdays are set up, the workday chairman can contact Dennis Kammers at:

Reminder to all members to contact a committee chairman to set up workdays so you can have them make sure you get credit for the workday.

 

Change of Address: If you have a change of address, phone number, or email please let the club know. You can contact the newsletter editor Shawn Allen or the Financial Secretary Rachael Pitkin. We have been having problems with being able to contact people.
