You may have noticed that we now have an AED (Automatic Electronic Defibrillator) in the Club House. It is located in the main hall, right by the kitchen door.
There will be an AED/CPR training session for members of the Range Safety Committee on Saturday morning, April 7, in the club hall. There are also a small number of slots available for any other club members interested in this training.
If there is sufficient interest, we will schedule an additional training session. This could save someone’s life.

It was perfect weather for the 2018 Ice Fishing Derby. Check out photos from the day!
We started with a delicious breakfast prepared by Pattie Brick and Vern Eshbaugh, and then it was down to the frozen pond for the derby to start at 8am.
Lots of 13″ inch fish were caught, but Jeff Kinney took the day with his 13-3/4″ trout. We’ll give an honorable mention to Adian for his 14″ fish, along with a reminder that you’ve got to be in the competition to win!
Thanks to the Pond Committee for pulling together a great event, and for all the fishermen for coming out!
LSC members are invited to the 2018 Ice Fishing Outing on Feb 17 (weather date Feb 18)! Start the day with a hearty breakfast in the clubhouse at 7am, and fishing starts at 8am. This event does not require a fishing button, though buttons for the rest of the year will be for sale. Instructors, bait, and equipment will be available, and coffee and hot chocolate will be served by the pond.
Members will be receiving their 2018 membership renewal notifications soon, either by email or a letter in the mail.
If you get these by email and don’t see it this week, please be sure to check your spam folder.
Also, if you have been getting the renewals by mail, please consider saving the club postage and printing costs and opting to receiving your renewals by email.
Again this year members have the ability to pay your membership dues online. The Club set up a Paypal account to facilitate online payments, and members are welcome to use this new method or send in a traditional check. Please note that there is a small processing fee with online payments to cover the Paypal charges.
If you have any questions about your membership, dues payments, or membership of the Lowell Sportsmen’s Club in general, please contact Membership Secretary Darlene Parker at firstname.lastname@example.org or 978-479-0469.
As of 12/12/17, the Pond Committee has closed the Trout Pond. With cold weather starting to freeze the surface, there will be no fishing until the ice has frozen solid enough to be safe to walk on.
The Pond Committee will determine when the pond will reopen based on weather conditions. Until then, the pond is closed.
