    Default Club Sponsorship Young wood

    Hi all just moved here about six months ago from Michigan to New Stanton. Club I joined in Michigan was sign up pay and take a class, and your in. I used to do shotgun and rifle shooting, and need to join a club it seems to shoot here. My issues is I am a traveler, usually on the road during the week and can never make that third Wednesday or fifth Mondays that clubs have meetings. Where I have to as my phone research shows I have to hope I can find two sponsors. I miss shooting outdoor club and need some help, I'm closest to Youngwood but at this point would love to join somewhere. I am an NRA RSO, and lifetime member with NRA , VFW and DAV. if any of that helps sway some favor.

    No guarantee however I think if you can locate and explain your situation to a club officer, most will work with you. I recently joined the VSC. I was unable to attend the first meeting do to a family situation. The club president went out of his way to work with me. VSC would not be the best choice for you a little far. I think some of the smaller clubs are having trouble filling vacancies and are a little less stringent on the application process.

    If you live in New Stanton and like to shoot Trap, Skeet, or Five Stand, Pistol, Archery, or Rifle, then you really should consider Pitcarin-Monroeville Sportsmen's Club. http://www.pmsconline.com

    From New Stanton you would just jump on the Pa. Turnpike and head west, get off at the Monroeville exit, make a left onto Rt 48 and from there it's anywhere from 10 to at worse 20 minutes to the Club.

    To join you have to come to a meeting where you will find two members who will sign your app form. The initiation fee is $30 and the annual dues are $70. Cheap!!

    Check out the web site and PM me if you have any questions.

    At PMSC you don't physically need to attend a meeting. They permit a proxy.

    http://www.pmsconline.com/


    From here:http://www.pmsconline.com/pmsc/?q=membership

    "I can't make it to the club during the monthly meeting to apply. What do I do?
    It is required that you attend a monthly meeting to apply and introduce yourself. If you cannot attend, your sponsor will attend in your place and present your application for you. "

    So I guess the next question is there someone here willing to act as my proxy.

    Yeah. I'll proxy for ya. Hawk is known to be...well....slim at meeting attendance. Yeah...slim is a good description. Download the application and draw a check to PMSC and (providing you want to do this) PM me that you do, and I'll send you my home address to mail this too. Then I'll go to the next meeting and stand up there and tell 'em what a "swell" guy you are.


    BTW....your gonna need to attach a pic of you. Like the size of a passport photo. Don't give 'em the one you had your last booking photo done....that won't go over real well with your jail house ID on it.
