2019 Memberships Due

All 2018 club memberships expire Dec. 31, 2018. However, you may renew your membership for 2019 anytime between Dec. 1, 2018 and Feb. 15, 2019. The cost for a 2019 membership is $40. Even if you have not renewed for a few years, and even if you were previously told you owe a late fee, you are welcome to renew your membership during the Dec. 1 – Feb. 15 renewal period for only $40.

ALSO, there is a one time special this year only: If you did not turn in your HID Key card when your membership expired, and have lost it since, you can replace the card for only $5 (plus regular $40 renewal) when you renew before Feb. 15 2019, instead of the normal $25 lost card fee. This is a ONE TIME OFFER THAT WILL NOT BE REPEATED, in order to clean up some of the confusion from the first couple years after we transitioned to the HID key card system. After Feb. 15, 2019 a lost key card, or a key card that was not returned when your membership expired, will continue to incur a $25 fee, and no new membership/key card will be issued until the unreturned key card has been paid for. NOTE: If you still have a key card, it will be renewed or reactivated for no additional fee when you renew before Feb. 15 2019.

As of today (11/6/2018) CR&GC has 429 members. Managing this volume of members and maintaining the range facilities has been a time consuming and costly task on part of the volunteers handling it. Please help them as much as you can by submitting your renewals on time and helping out at the range. Remember, this club is maintained by its members, it is not the responsibility of the board members to maintain it and we do not have a range custodian. Please remind people of this if they complain about our range, it’s their responsibility too. And THANK YOU everyone who does help out!

Please do not go to Red Rock for any club membership issues as they no longer sell our memberships or renewals. To renew your membership you can simply mail a check of $40.00 to the address below or renew online via credit card or PayPal at the clubs website www.custerrodandgun.com You may also renew your membership at the 2019 Annual Banquet and Meeting Jan. 19th. If you chose to mail your renewal in, please provide your clearly printed current mailing address, phone number and email. If you do not wish to renew your membership please mail the HID card to the address below before February 15th, 2019. If you have any questions regarding membership please email us at email@custerrodandgun.com

2019 Annual Meeting and Banquet

The Custer Rod and Gun Club will be holding our annual Membership Meeting and Banquet at 6:00 pm on Saturday January 19th, 2019 at the Town and Country Club (S. 4th St. and Eagle Ave) in Miles City. The banquet starts at 6:00 PM followed by the Annual Meeting at 7:00 PM.

In traditional CR&GC style, the club will provide roast beef, potatoes, and dinner rolls. Attendees A thru M are asked to bring a salad or dessert, and N thru Z a main or side dish. There will be door prizes and raffle items including a Sig Sauer P365 9mm, a Ruger PC Carbine in 9mm, a Ruger 10/22 in 22LR, a Ruger American rifle in .270 WIN, a Rugar SR90 in 9mm, a S&W M&P Shield in 45 ACP, and MUCH, MUCH MORE! All present with a 2019 paid membership will be entered in the door prize raffle, just for attending. Eligible members must be present to win. Membership renewals will be sold at the door, but if you renew online before the meeting please bring your membership card with you, as the attached stub is your entry for the door prize raffle, and the membership card is required to vote.

More prizes are accumulating as we speak. Please keep in mind that the meeting space, servers, and food provided by the club is paid for by the raffles held during the banquet. If you have any items you would be willing to donate to the raffles, please contact Jesse Smith at 853-2556 or email@custerrodandgun.com to arrange for them to be included in the raffles, and picked up before the meeting if necessary.

Also consider nominees for board positions that will be expiring and filled during the meeting. Please consider serving your club by serving on the Board of Directors. This year we will be electing three Officers and five Directors. The Officer positions that are expiring are currently held by Jerry Austill (Vice-President), Jeff Faycosh (Secretary), and Marty Scheid (Treasurer). The Director position are currently held by Shane Adams, JD Arneson, Daniel DeLong, Chris Schlepp, and Lee Wankel. All positions are two year terms except Treasurer and the Director position held by Lee Wankel, which will both be one year terms. If you would be interested in serving on the Board but won’t be able to make the meeting, please contact Jesse Smith at the number/email above to have your nomination entered, or to suggest someone else who may be interested in accepting a nomination.
