Just got word that the March 7, 2018 club meeting is cancelled. Do to the amount of snow in the forcast. See you all at April’s meeting. Enjoy the snow.
February meeting is canceld do to the weather conditions they are calling for and the mountain already has snow on it. We will see ya next meeting in march 7th at 7 pm
With new board of directors comes changes. If you want to be heard or have concerns for what goes on at BMHC, YOU as a member NEED TO ATTEND. FEBRUARY 7TH at 7pm this is a Wednesday.
Why, should you attend this meeting? The directors want to limit the number of tree stands a member can have. They want your input on what you feel would be the correct number. To do so you need to attend February 7th meeting. If you do not voice your concern or number at this meeting, you lost your chance. After February club meeting members who didn’t attend can’t complain about the decision that is made by the directors. YES WE UNDERSTAND some can not make meetings so you may email cindy at firstname.lastname@example.org if you absolutely CAN NOT make meeting with your number for stands or any other concerns just for this meeting.
Name tags on treestands still need to be placed by MAY 1st or your stands will be removed by directors.
The new directors want to make the club better, they want to hear your concerns or changes you would like seen as a member. If you do not come to meetings you are not heard. The board could of made a number for stands at January’s meeting but there was only 10 members who attened. So to be fair to all members they are holding off till February’s meeting to see what members who did no make last meeting have to say. I thank the board for that decision to give members a chance to be heard.
Please pass this information to other members.
New president , Kurt Wessner

IMPORTANT NOTICE by May 1st, each member will have name, phone number written or have a tag at eye level on your tree stands. Board members said if your name is not on treestands by May 1st the board members WILL REMOVE each stand that doesn’t have name on.

To the persons that decided to be a real sportsman like, and took my camera and tossed it and than took my straps and camera card thank you. I have had my stand there for 10 years and never any issues. Give back card and straps. I have never messed with anyone’s stuff and if I did walk by your camera never even touched camera. I hope this is just a once and done issue. If anyone else is having same issue let us know. I don’t get up often so very disappointed about this now I can’t see what was happening for the past 3 months. Usually nothing anyway just like that spot.
There will be no haunted hayride or walk thru for 2017. Do to members not having any interest in helping set up or help in the nights of the hayride. There was only a few who wanted to do the haunt we thank you but we need more members to help. I would like to thank all whom have helped in the past for your time and energy for doing the hay ride in the past.
Only kids may shot a buck and a doe ON THE LEASE.
Only if you have been a member for 5 years and are a senior licenses holder may you shoot a doe anywhere on the lease. BUT ONLY IF YOU HAVE NOT TAKEN A BUCK. ONCE YOU SHOOT A DOE YOU MAY NOT SHOOT A BUCK. OR IF YOU HAVE SHOT A BUCK YOU MAY NOT TAKE A DOE ON LEASE.
AS A MEMBER SINGLE OR FAMILY, once you have shot a buck you may not take a doe. As a family you each may take a buck but if one of your family would shoot a doe they now can not take a buck and NO ONE ELSE IN YOUR FAMILY CAN TAKE A DOE.
Anyone may take a doe in the hollow this season. Please remember once you take a doe YOU MAY NOT TAKE A BUCK. Unless your name was pulled for the doe raffle.
We have a long standing commitment to the community to clean up the roads that are around our lease and it is that time again to have it cleaned up. We also need to get no tresspassing posters up that help let others know they are on our leased land. HUNTING TIME IS THE MAJOR CONCERN to get this done. So your help is needed on September 17, 2017 at 8:00 am. We will meet at the club house to see how many of our members show to help out. We also will need firewood cut for the club house to be stacked outside by club house. So if you have a chain saw please bring it to help out. Please let us know asap if you will be making the work detail call 717-442-4531 let Cindy a message that you are coming. Thank you for your support.
There has been a lot of discussion about dues and the lease being able to be paid. Board members and members that attended the meeting agreed to have membership dues for AUGUST 2, 2017 will be $500.00 and there is no mandatory tickets sales and no mandatory work details. ( this does not mean that during the year there maybe tickets and work details, that will be available on voluntary bases or if hardship would come along and the club would need funds the board has the right to make mandatory at that time.)
The board members and members at the meeting voted that **ALL MEMBERSHIPS DUES ARE TO BE PAID ON OR BEFORE AUGUST 2, 2017 MEETING.** There is only going to be 40 members accepted at this time. There is also going to be no pro-rating dues at anytime of the year.
Doe raffle was held $5.00 a ticket with 10 pulled to be able to harvest a doe anywhere on lease and also harvest a buck.
There was around 16 members that came to the meeting.
