Happy 2017 Everyone.

Well, here it is, almost Spring.   Time to pull those six guns out of the gun safe, polish them up and get ready to come out and have some fun.   The 2017  calendar has now been posted and is ready for your reading pleasure.   The new Board of Directors has been seated and are working hard on the State Shoot scheduled in July.  A big thank you to Sweet Caroline for stepping up to be the director for the State Shoot.  She has completed the application (it has been posted) as well as a tentative schedule.  Please check out the State Championship tab for more information.

Here are some events that are fast approaching:

Concealed Carry Class – March 8, 15, 22, and 29th at St. Judes Church in North Pole.  The classes will begin at 6:00 p.m. and end at 9:00 p.m., and will cost $50.00 per person payable to Golden Heart Shootist Society.    The class will be taught by Wind Drifter with help from Brasspounder and Montana Kid Hammer.   If you need more information regarding this class or directions to the church, please contact Wind Drifter at gjsearles@gci.net.

Diamond Mac and Lead Spitting Rusty are gearing up for the spring shoot at their house.  It is currently scheduled for March 25, 2017, with registration at 12:00 (noon) with shooting to begin at 1:00 p.m.   This will be a pot luck, so if you are going to attend, please plan on  bringing a dish to share.     It would be helpful to Lead Spitting Rusty if you could let them know if you plan on attending.  You can contact Diamond Mac at diamondmac@outlook.com.

Other Stuff:

The Club would like to thank the following former Executive Board members for their service:  Kootenai Brown – Territorial Governor for three years, Callie Crossfox – Banker for three years, and Light Rider for his service as a Trail Hand.

The Golden Heart Shootist Society would like to welcome the new Executive Board:

Drover Knutts – President or Trial Boss

Wind Drifter – Vice President or Ramrod

Pokin A. Long – Secretary or Telegrapher

Sally Alaska – Banker

The Club would like to thank Montana Kid Hammer for his service as Top Hand and wish him a speedy recovery and return to Fairbanks. Because of issues beyond the Kid’s control, he has had to resign as Top Hand, so we are currently seeking someone to fill the rest of his term (2017).  If you are interested, please contact the Trail Boss or any of the board members.


REMINDER:  The monthly general membership meeting is now being held at the Hometown Restaurant on South Cushman Street, the last Tuesday of each month starting at 7:00 p.m.   Hope to see you there.
