To strive for the purity of water, the clarity of air, and the wise stewardship of the land and its resources; to know
the beauty and understanding of nature and the value of wildlife, woodlands and open space; to the preservation
of this heritage and to man’s sharing in it,  I pledge myself as a member of the Izaak Walton League of America.


The Ike’s grounds are beginning to be back to “normal”, countless hours have been spent by many to make this happen
and I thank each and every one of you who have pitched in. The clean- up day on October 17th was a success, according
to Board member Ed. Moore “We had one of the best turn outs in some time”. Many thanks to others who brought their
chain saws and various other tools to assist in clean up. Special thanks to member Craig Hawkins for furnishing his
Bobcat with Grappler jaws to clean down trees from BB Gun trail area. This saved many man hours of work had we had
to do the work by hand. Thanks to the following and anyone who we inadvertently omitted. Chuck Strobbe, Dan Nelson,
Barry Gaarder, Ed Moore, Bob Backes, DJ Eastman, Layken Eastman, Lincoln Baker, Dick Kelly, Christy Kelly, Alyssa
Jordan, Jim Sams, Martin Reyes, Kevin Benzing, Sam Benzing, Bill Brouwer, Brad Wilkening, Anthony Briggs. In
addition, thanks to Chris Robinson for hauling away the scrap metal from the storm damage prior to cleanup day.
Quick reminder; The gun ranges close at 7 or dusk, whatever comes first, this is especially important to remember as
days become shorter. We have received reports of people shooting after dark.
 Barry Gaarder and Ed Moore winterized the clubhouse by draining and evacuating water pipes, shutting off water
and installing wood window covers. Two brush piles will be burned weather permitting. Some wildlife piles will be
left where possible and practical.
 The annual February wild game feed may need to be postponed due to lack of locations being open to public until
Covid is under control. May be later in spring when clubhouse is open again. Watch for announcements for this
popular event.
 Help is needed for the Christmas Tree Sales on December 5,6,12,13,19 & 20 from 10am to 4pm. If you are
