Dear Friends & Valued Customers,
Winter is upon us in Northern Michigan and the staff at FIELDSPORT is preparing for another busy season. Many important issues deserve notice:
20th Anniversary: It’s now 2014, and as they say, as we age - the years seem to pass by faster and faster. I wholeheartedly agree. It has finally dawned on me that FIELDSPORT is now entering its’ 20th year of operation. The past 20 years have seemed to fly by as quickly as a flushed grouse. Thanks to you, the dream of establishing this business has come true. Owning and operating a “Premium Grade, Destination Gun Store” has been an absolute joy. Not many men or women can honestly say that they truly love what they do for a living. I am blessed to say I can! Thank you all for your continued business and support. We must be doing conducting our business correctly.
New, Gun Department Manager: With the dawning of the new year, I am pleased to announce that we have finally found a suitable replacement for retired Michael Eberhardt, who is now enjoying sunny Florida. Our new, gun department manager is Jim Patrick. Jim is a retired Michigan State Police Captain who has passionately spent his days off pursuing pheasants, grouse & waterfowl all over our country with his beloved Labrador retrievers. He also brings a very good working knowledge of firearms and the shooting sports to our business. I believe his addition to our team will be a true asset to our customers and the future development of our entire gun department. Welcome Jim! I hope you enjoy your new career.
FIELDSPORT Quail Hunting & Wingshooting School Combo: Lastly, we are pleased to announce that our very first March Wingshooting School held in conjunction with a guided Bobwhite Quail hunt hosted by the Wild Wing Lodge in Sturgis, KY has sold out. We originally offered just one, 3-day school, but the demand was so overwhelming, we decided to offer a concurrent program and it too has been well received. As I write this home page, we have only one tuition left in the second school planned for March 20th thru 22nd. If you wish to attend, please call today. This combo School & Bird Hunting program appears to have all the ingredients of being offered every March. If you are interested in attending next year, please simply contact Katrina, and she will place you on the call list for next season.
Thank you for your continued business and support.
Best Wishes for a Healthy & Prosperous 2014…
Bryan, Katrina, Scott & Jim
