The Erie National Wildlife Refuge (ENWR) and The Friends of the ENWR are having their 14th Biennial amateur nature photo contest !!!. The contest is to promote and raise the awareness of the Refuge. The Friends of the ENWR is a non-profit group not unlike Black Ash Sportsman Inc. dedicated to protecting and improving the natural habitat needed for the wide variety of plants and animals that populate the Refuge grounds as well as providing public recreation and environmental education opportunities. The ENWR is great Federal Facility in our backyard and may not be truly appreciated by the citizens of NW PA. So help raise awareness and support a common cause, grab your camera and click to download the Photo Contest Flyer with more information.
As all the members know, our Black Ash Sportsman Club is now officially a members only club. What does this mean ? Well for starters in means we are getting quite a few new members each month. It’s been very exciting to see so may new faces at the club meetings and to see the renewed enthusiasm for the club. Second it’s a reminder that it is OUR club and we all must work together to make sure ALL activities and events are safe and welcoming. We must also all continue to welcome new members and to remember that we are the ambassadors of the things we love, hunting, fishing, shooting, conservation, the outdoors In these trying times it has never been more important to introduce folks who live in an increasing ”virtual” world back to the outdoors.
At the March monthly meeting the club Directors announced the Sportsman of the Year Award recipient for 2011 is Harold Smith and recipient for 2012 is Carl Pelino. The award is presented annually by the Board of Directors to a member who has provided years of dedicated service to the Club and whose service stands above that normally contributed by its members. Hats off to both Harold and Carl for all of their tireless work supporting the club !!
