A Message from the Association President

​Presidents Message 
July 7, 2018

Greetings to all.
July 7 2018 WMLA meeting was held at Deerfield pistol and archery. Attendance was good and we got a new member thanks to Chuck Baum. Reports were given on the events that we had this spring all went well. We need more people to get involved.
We lost another rifle shoot due to lack of help and shooters, Reedsburg will no longer hold a rifle shoot with the trap shoot in July.
It was decided to give DPAC a free add in the Badger State for the use of the classroom for the meeting.
Joan Kamholtz presented us with a poster of photos of the cancer shoot, and thanked us for the shoot. We raised about $850 for cancer.
The shooting season is on so lets get off our butts and burn some black powder.
Have a safe summer.
Don Ellis
President WMLA
