Friends of the NRA held their annual Banquet this past Saturday the
21st. The Club bought a table for $1,911 which entitled us to a
full size Kimber 1911 and a number of raffle tickets. We won two
prizes in the raffle. First was a bust of a whitetail deer and
the big second prize was an STI NRA marked 1911 style Guardian pistol
in 9mm Luger. This pistol has an msrp of $1,299. Both
pistols will be raffled or auctioned to raise money for the Club.
Hadley and her merry group of volunteers deserve recognition for this
fine event. It was a well attended enjoyable night. Also,
the Mohave Sportsman Club would like to thank The Gunshop and Bank
Street Guns for their participation. Both made significant
contributions to the Banquet and raffles.

Esquibel made a proposal for the Club to be a sponsor of the Veterans
Sportsman Alliance 3-D Archery Shoot scheduled for August 13-14,
2016. His request was for the Club to provide either $400 or the
use of 40 of our 3-D targets. The Club readily approved a motion
to support the shoot by donating the use of the targets for the shoot.
The Club is glad to support this worthy cause where all proceeds
will go to support veterans.
