According to the club's secretary/treasurer, Ray Hanson, on Saturday, Jan. 21, 75 members of the Cedaredge Rod and Gun Club took part in the club's annual banquet and selection of the 2012 board of directors. The club is one of the oldest clubs of its kind on the Western Slope, and with more than 200 members, one of the largest.
Since 1961 the club has sponsored a competitive "Senior Shoot" for Cedaredge High School seniors, providing the firearms, ammunition, instruction and a lunch at no cost to the thousand-plus students who have taken part in the shoots. The students receive instructions in firearm safety by club members before competing with each other. Those club members also serve as the students' coaches during the competition.
The shooting range, located at 1800 R75 Road, is open to members and guests and offers an outdoor pistol range, rifle range, a muzzleloading range, trap shoots, sporting clays, archery, and air-gun.
Hanson noted that the club's vice president, Chuck Dalpiaz, thanked the club members for all their help on the range, Connie's Restaurant for the meal, Leisure Time Sports for all their help throughout the year, Sportsman's Warehouse and Cabela's for their support.
According to Hanson, Todd Fairchild and Dalpiaz, "several other individuals" were also recognized for all they have done for the club over the past year.
Much to his surprise, Hanson was awarded a lifetime membership in the club and a plaque by the Board in recognition of his more than 20 years of service as the Club's Secretary/Treasurer.
Hanson noted that, "New By-laws were approved by the members, and Chuck Church, David Turner, Doug Scarlett were re-elected to the Board, along with Todd Fairchild."
Hanson said the board also noted the passing of past members: John Adams, Brad Peterson, Scott Everhart, and lifetime member Mac Gorrod.
