Hello ASCE FRV Members,
We have another great meeting planned for the new year. On Tuesday, January 30th, 2018 we will be having a lunch meeting at The Marq in De Pere.

Previous Meeting Summary
September Meeting - We held our September meeting at Little Creek Lodge in Little Suamico, WI. This meetings intentions was to get members to bring non-members and to get non-members interested in ASCE. We had a pretty good turn out, but we are always trying to get more people to spread the word about ASCE. Members and non-members got to have some fun shooting sporting clays and to enjoy other members and non-members company. After shooting sporting clays, everyone enjoyed some drinks and dinner at Little Creek Lodge. From talking with everyone, it was a great time had by all. Please see some photos of our participants shooting sporting clays. https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B4cPIcTYf8QzTjVNZ0RXNWtybDQ
