Wisconsin Firearm Owners, Ranges, Clubs & Educators – October Update
by Jeff Nass
Wisconsin –-(AmmoLand.com)- As we head into the fall, I encourage you to volunteer at your gun club and help out at deer rifle site in. Your expertise can help make both the site-in and hunting season a more memorable event for your neighbors and fellow trigger pullers. Please encourage membership in WI-FORCE. We are not just about competitions; we have also been working in Madison on issues, including puppy mill and cruelty to animal’s legislation, which improperly written could hurt hunters and sportsmen.
The DNR says there are over 600 clubs in Wisconsin, only 50 are WI-FORCE members. If your club is not a member, please encourage them to do so. Applications are on the website. Our progress in concealed carry has improved with the announcement that our current Governor will not run for re-election. Work is already being done on our annual convention in February. More details will be coming out soon.
Be safe in the woods – See you at some of the indoor shooting matches. Jeff Nass WI-Force President
Volunteers! by Paul Baumann
Lets talk about “Volunteers”. Webster defines a volunteer as “One who offers to enter into any service of his or her own free will”. In our organization, the people who serve on the Board of Directors, or serve as Dicipline Coordinators, Instructors, Match Directors, or any others that “Serve” for the benefit of WI-FORCE members, do so without any compensation other than the rare but much appreciated “Thank you”.
We volunteers are not special people in that we have special talents or lots of free time, we are special because we believe in what we are doing and recognise that we all need to take a turn pulling on the oars to keep our boat on its course.
We need your help! WI-FORCE is looking for nominations to the WI-FORCE board of directors. We need some good people who are willing to put in some time and effort to make WI-FORCE a valuable organization for the shooters of Wisconsin. Please consider helping by offering your unique talents to help our organization.
There are many ways to Volunteer within WI-FORCE. We need reporters for our newsletters. It seems when we put someone in charge of something, we immediately think that he/she will just take care of everything. WRONG! We need eyes and ears and typing fingers our there to help us produce informative articles that are of interest to all of our members.
PLEASE, share a little of yourself with our organization. You will feel good that you have contributed and I know that some of us will be there to say “Thank YOU!”.
Wi-FORCE promotes and protects the shooting sports, hunting, and the lawful ownership and use of firearms in Wisconsin. We coordinate match schedules of member clubs, sanction the state championship matches, monitor and recommend legislation, and provide training and educational programs for our members, competitors and Wisconsin shooters. Wi-FORCE supports the interaction and education of all individuals and groups interested in the shooting sports and the natural right of citizens to own arms. Visit: www.wi-force.org
