Members, please follow the link to the forums to review the proposed bylaw change. This change will be voted on at the March Membership Meeting. An email was sent out to all members and the proposed change is also on the clubhouse bulleting board.
Membership at Putnam Fish and Game Club has reached our max capacity, meaning that any new applications have been added to a waiting list and tabled until after February 2018.
Any current members that wish to continue their membership are urged to make sure your renewal dues are paid in full by the February meeting otherwise, your place will be fortified to people on the waiting list. There will be no grace period as there has been in past years.
There is no penalty for getting your renewal fees paid early. 😉
Renewal fees can be reviewed here. Contact Dave Foisy (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you have any concerns/questions about what you owe for next year.
If you can’t make it to the meeting, fees may be mailed in to:

At the end of this year and the current term, Reed Vander Schel will be graciously stepping away from his position as club President. Reed’s tireless efforts serving as club President have helped improve the Putnam Fish and Game Club and provided lasting benefits to all members. The Board of Directors would like to express our deepest gratitude to Reed for his efforts.
That being said, he’s left some big shoes to fill and we’re looking for someone to step up and fill the role as club President. If this sounds like something that interests you, or if you’d like to run for any other position on the Executive Board, please contact Theresa Lacasse who is the Election Committee Chair. If you have any questions on what being Club President entails, I’m sure Reed would be glad to talk. Shoot him an email or give him a call.
