Due to problems with the postal service, we have been experiencing many problems with members either not receiving their membership renewal forms or their new card if the form was submitted. All members should have received their forms by now. If you have any questions concerning your renewal, please reach out to our membership secretary Evelyn Claymen at 267-664-1798.

Volunteers Are Needed
Great Swamp Fish and Game is doing quite well, overall. Our only downside is getting volunteers to come out and help. We are in need of volunteers for the kitchen, bingo, and mowing the grass/ trimming. Please contact Tony Kulp for the kitchen, Jim Leberknight for bingo and Earl for mowing the grass. Without volunteers to help the club, the board will be forced to contract outside help which, in return, will force us to raise your dues.
Update from the National Deer Association
The Pennsylvania Senate recently amended and passed Pennsylvania House Bill 1300 (HB 1300) – the state’s annual budget bill that determines spending for all state programs. When amending and passing HB 1300, the Senate included a line-item that would transfer $150 million from the Pennsylvania Game Commission’s (PGC) Game Fund to another fund used for Chesapeake Bay restoration. This transfer not only undercuts the PGC’s budget – funded by hunters and excise taxes on hunting and shooting equipment – but it also puts at risk the agency’s eligibility for federal funding in the future.
If there is anyone interested in purchasing cut firewood from the club, please contact Walt Sinnwell at 215-939-1381 to make arrangements.
