North State Membership Drive Brings California Hunters and Conservationists Together

The recently organized North State Chapter of Quail Unlimited held it’s first sporting clays shoot August 26, 2006, at the Clear Creek Sports Club. “We planned it as a membership drive and a way to tell the community that Quail Unlimited is now in town and doing business,” said cochairman Ric Van Griethuysen.

“We signed up 22 members, and it gave us a news story for the local papers,” added Chairman Bill Frech. We invited people we would like to have on our committees and made some new friends and contacts for the future. Frech plans to get committees organized, and set a date for their banquet this spring.

The 100-round event at Clear Creek Sporting Clays started at 8 AM and included a barbecue lunch and a small raffle, plus a year’s membership and subscription to the Quail Unlimited magazine.

“We have already made initial contacts with the Bureau of Land Management, the California Department of Fish and Game and private landowners so we can start putting conservation dollars to work for upland game birds and other forms of wildlife,” said Ric Van Griethuysen, cochairman for the North State Chapter.
