As most of you will not read this until after Thanksgiving, I hope and trust that you are all fat and happy after your turkey feast. Just try to stay awake long enough to get through this month's newsletter.

The SPE Sporting Clays event held last month was another huge success. This is an important fundraising event for our section scholarship fund, and thanks to your participation we were able to raise over $8000. This is especially commendable give the economic times we are in. I'd like to give a big thanks to Mark Carr and all the other volunteers for putting on another great shoot.

Cold air and jingle bells aren't the only thing the end of the year signifies…it also means your SPE membership dues are likely up. Please make time this month to renew by visiting

That's all for another month. I hope everyone has a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year; and remember, it's not too late to get off of Santa's Naughty List.
