A big hello to everyone from the Board of the Sioux County Sportsmen’s Club. It has been an exciting year for everyone to be able to celebrate 20 years of the club’s organization.
First of all we would like to thank everyone who has been a part of the Sioux County Sportsmen’s club over the last 20 years. Here is a very interesting list of accomplishments over the last 20 years of where all of your proceeds are going to.
- Over the last 20 years SCSC has spent $776,393 helping with the acquisition of 2146 acres. Go and check these public grounds out. They are quite impressive. Also if you get a chance, thank the Sioux County Conservation for maintaining these grounds and as always leave these grounds cleaner than when you came.
- Over the last 20 years SCSC has spent $97,850 just on kids. This would be events, gifts and prizes for events, youth education events, etc. Remember this is all for the kids and there future in the outdoors.
- Over the last 20 years SCSC has spent $31,150 for stocking fish in our ponds throughout Sioux County. Go out and spend time with your kids, grandkids or take other kids out to these places.
All of these accomplishments are done only with all of you as members, businesses, sponsors, volunteers and board members. We all have something very special in our county that will always be there for our future generations.
Our 20th anniversary banquet was once again very successful. This year we have cleared around $63,000. Once again thanks to all of you who made this a great success.
Our 2018 banquet has not quite been set yet. Keep looking at our website at www.siouxcsc.org for an update on the banquet. This will be posted shortly. If anyone has questions or ideas for our banquet please contact one of the board members so we can address that at our board meetings.
