Work Hours

Each year when the dues slips are mailed out our Work Hour Chairman gets call after call about work hours fee. I will try and explain what work hours are.
History

Some years past the Board of Directors was looking for a way to encourage members to use the club and they also found work hours could keep the cost of yearly dues down by keeping the cost of maintenance down.

They started a work hour fee. Each member of the club 62 or younger has a choice of donating 10 hours of service to the club in exchange for deleting
$100.00 off his "work hour fee".  What this means is you can donate 1 hour to the club on workdays and receive $10.00 off your work hour fee for each hour donated. Normal work days start at 9 am on Saturdays and go to at least 12 noon.

"Work Hours" are meant to be hours you work during a SCHEDULED WORK DAY, or another work day the cub has. Normally the club has scheduled work days at least two times a month on Saturdays all year long. See the Calendar in the front club house on the door to the back room.

It is not meant to take the place of helping do things you would be doing anyway if you were there. Like helping at the bar during a meeting, or a monthly/weekly trap shoot. Things that you would be doing as you enjoy the club. IF YOU HELP DURING AN EVENT IT MUST BE A BOBWHITE CLUB EVENT.
Example: "youth shoots" are not a Bobwhite Club event, They are not sponsored by the Bobwhite Club. They are an approved group using the club grounds and do not count toward your work hours.

The Board of Directors or General Membership would have to approve an event outside of a Bobwhite club event for work hours.

IF YOU DO ANY WORK HOURS YOU MUST FILL OUT A PAPER STATING

NAME and BADGE #
DATE OF WORK
HOURS OF WORK,
WHAT YOU DID

LEAVE IT ON THE SHELF BEHIND THE BAR IN THE FRONT CLUB HOUSE.

If you do not fill out this paper you will not get credit for your work. No one else is going to fill this out for you. Work Hour Chairman will pick them up and record the information.  Because annual Due slips are sent out in December work hours start Dec 1 and go to Nov 30th each year..

Our Work Hours Chairman keeps track of all works hours. For more information contact him directly at 
SPLEWKE@GMAIL.COM

Work hours after November 30 will be recorded on the following year's records.

If you need things to do outside of a normal workday contact the Caretaker and he can assign you jobs to do. Please do this during convenient times for the Caretaker. He is off on Sundays so please contact him during the weekdays not on Sundays.

Workdays are sometimes scheduled by Bobwhite Club event chairmen so they may at times contact members for help during the year.

If you have any questions about work hours contact Work Hours Chairman
