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.
to Membership Page
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
off his "work hour fee". What this means is
you can donate 1 hour to the club on workdays and receive
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

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

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