Tiadaghton Sportsman’s Association
We would like to remind all members about the Annual Running Deer Shoot and Gun Drawing which is always held the Sunday before Deer Season. The date is quickly approaching, and this year it will be held Sunday, November 29th. As a reminder, if you purchased a membership in 2015, your name will go in for the Gun Drawing. We give away one gun for every “even” 100 members. Good Luck to all of you. Please be sure to read the attached Range Rules, and you are asked to observe all Rules. Thank you.
We now have a “Blog Page” where Club information is posted when needed. The address is http://tidaghton.blogspot.com Please check out the page.
If you engage in Facebook, there is also a Facebook Group set up for “Tiadaghton Sportsmen’s Association”. Please search for the group, send a friend request, and you will then be able to access information.
The clubhouse now has a telephone on site: 570-769-6089. This is to be used in case of emergencies. There is not always someone on site to answer the phone.

Another note to all members: PLEASE shoot at the rubber targets instead of the target frames. Remember!!!!

The clubhouse grounds have been used this past year for other things too. A local Boy Scout troop used the grounds for a weekend to camp and work outside to earn badges. We even had one Boy Scout, LJ Boone, who completed his Eagle Scout Project by building and installing “Bat Boxes” on our clubhouse grounds.
Another weekend, we had The Lycoming/Clinton County Young Marines complete an Encampment teaching them vital survival skills, like building their own shelters to sleep in over the weekend. This allowed them to earn ribbons and awards.
