Any one a member of the Rapids Archery Club??

Ok first off it isn't that I really mind joining two different archery clubs or organizations, but to be forced into joining one club just to be a member of another is down right unfair.

I can see asking the membership to support another larger or smaller group, but requiring them to be a member is not right.

Any memebers of the Rapids Archery club care to reason with me why I should join that club when it requires me to join one of three different state or national clubs??

It would seem I get no benifit to be a member, the range cost is the same and from what I was told second hand even the league shoots cost the same as nonmembers.

I will more than likely join the Minnesota Bow Hunters any way, as they represent the DNR and get in on the metro hunts all the time.

But now I have reservations about Rapids Archery.

What Benifits does the club offer, if I decide to become a member and do the volinteer work needed to keep the working memebership going?

I know absolutely nothing about this specific club but occasionally smaller regional clubs receive some financial support from the larger organizations to keep their smaller clubs going.

I wasn't able to access their ".org" website, but I was able to look at teh geocities website and I don't see any requirement there to join one of the larger organizations. What I would do is go to the contact info and speak with some of the officers of the club and discuss their requirements.

I guess I never thought about that.

That would make a differance for me, if my membership in the larger club directly benifits the secondary club I am looking at then why not join both and have extra benifits.

Thanks for the inlightenment.

I'm not involved in the club but if I were to guess I'd say it has a lot to do with in general just promoting the sport. Being involved in a club is more of a two way relationship. Its not just about what the club can do for me, but also about what I can do for the club and sport. Supporting other organizations with something in common might be one of the ways to do that. Just my opinion. I've also contemplated joining the club this year. But I have a baby due this summer (our first) and I honestly don't think I'll have the time available to put towrads much else.

I did attend the 3D shoot on Sunday and had a fabulous time! It was my first ourdoor shoot and I had a blast. grin.gif

      Heard that too. Also heard 38 was closed for a but north of rapids due to flooding.    I know the water really came up when I was up last week compared to when I was there in April.

      Someone said 4 inches in the past week, more expected this weekend. A few roads, including county roads that are asphalt ended up with sink holes. Lakes are the highest I've ever seen in the 30+ years coming to the area and now living here. Several people lost trees Tues night

      Dang Kettle  that bites. Great to hear fishing was good though.   How much rain you get up that way?

      50 in 6 hours is great. Boat issues really put a damper on a great day though. Hope you get it fixed quickly.

      Well boat finally got "fixed" and I picked it up Saturday. Last week worked 96 hrs so Sunday wanted the day to fish alone. Boat ran great out to the spot, 4 miles or so. Fishing was great boated over 50 walleye in about 6 hrs. Caught them lindy rigging, jigging and bobber fishing watching them on the live scope. Kept 6 between 18-20 inches. After using the trolling motor for the entire time fishing, go to fire up the tiller and it bogs down and dies. Another 4 hours running the trolling motor back to the launch. Fortunate it's under warranty. Bummer of a day but fishing was great landed one about 7 lbs too

      Terrible news for that area especially this being such a prime time for tourism. We can only hope for dryer days ahead so they can get back to normal.

      For those not in the area, the Lake Vermilion area got anywhere from 5-10" of rain the other day (depending on your source). The lake is rising rapidly affecting docks, shorelines, and cabins. The Littlefork River that runs through Cook overran its banks and flooded the town. It's not expected to crest until at least Saturday, which means things will get worse. Places such as the Comet, the Muni, the library, and many other businesses are flooded. Many roads in the area have been destroyed by flooding as well. There's lots of damage. Below are two quick links.   https://www.northernnewsnow.com/2024/06/20/floodwaters-inundate-city-cook-evacuation-location-open/   https://www.mprnews.org/story/2024/06/20/cleanup-continues-flooding-in-northeast-minnesota-southern-minnesota-rivers-rising

      Apparently just the motorized portage.   If you paddle you are good to go.

      The only way I could do it is running parallel to the shoreline on the "L", but with the wake from the boats and my rocky shoreline, the waves just bounce it around too much, even with bumpers tied off. My neighbors dock is recessed off the main channel, I'm going to sweet talk him into letting me dock it there.

      They closed the Trout Lake Portage down washed out.
