Shippensburg Fish and Game Association

Welcome to the Shippensburg Fish and Game Association Web site!  
Here you can learn more about our club which is located in south-central Pennsylvania.
Please check back often for updates on our activities and events.
Range Closings
Snokes excavating will be moving the water line deeper next week.
The work done earlier this fall raised the water line above the frost line.
Snoke's will be lowering the water line to a safe depth and installing a frost free hydrant.
This will be a great addition and will help greatly with clean up at the June drawing.

In order to do this work, the outdoor rifle ranges will be closed from 
Monday, October 23 through probably Wednesday, October 25 weather permitting.
The ranges will be closed from dawn until about 5:30 PM each day.
If there are workers in front of the firing line, the ranges are closed.

Negley's will be doing our Fall well maintenance on October 30 from noon until 2 PM.
The ranges will already be closed for mowing on the 30th, so this will have little impact.

The NRA is in financial trouble
Th following is a proposal to the change to the bylaws of the
Shippensburg Fish and Game Association.

Our current bylaws -Article 12 states
In the event of dissolution of this association all rightful and legal debts will be paid. 
Any assets remaining after all debts are paid or otherwise satisfied
will be donated to the NRA Foundation Inc.
(an organization recognize as tax-exempt under the provisions of the 
Internal Revenue Code section 501(c) (3),
 whose address is 11250 Waples Mill RD, Fairfax, VA 22030.)

The new proposal to the bylaws is-
In the event of dissolution of this Association, all rightful and legal debts will be paid. 
Any assets remaining after all debts are paid or otherwise satisfied will be donated 
to an organization selected by the Board of Directors at the time of the dissolution.
Such organization shall be recognized as tax-exempt under the provisions of the 
Internal revenue Code section 501 (c)(3) and shall advocate the same purpose
and principles as stated in the Articles II and III.

These changes fall under Article V- Amendments
Section 1.
The Bylaws may be amended at any regular or special meeting by a two-thirds (2/3) vote of the members present, provided further that ninety (90) days or three (3) meetings elapsed between the date originally presented and the date of adoption.
Section 2-
All proposed amendments must be presented to the President in writing.

The proposal had the first reading at a Board of Directors on
September 12, 2023 and was read again on October 10, 2023.
It was voted upon for approval at both meetings.
Both votes were unanimous.
