Annual 2015 Newsletter

Meetings are the first Wednesday of every month



IMPORTANT -  All Members Please Read:

Due to the cost of printing and mailing a newsletter to over 400 members (yes, we’ve grown), we will mail only one newsletter per year.  THIS ONE.  We have a lot of information to pass on to you throughout the   email address, please send your email address to (you will know if I have your address because I just sent an email to all members).  I promise, I will only use your email address for club business.  We will not sell or share your email address with any other organization.  No one else will ever get your address from me.  If you don’t have an email address, hook up with someone that does so that you don’t miss out on important news and updates.  Keep in mind there are plenty of free email systems out there like Gmail, Yahoo, AOL, Verizon, and the list goes on and on.  Unfortunately, you do need to read your email from time to time.  Kinda like the mail that comes to the house, except you don’t need to go outside. 



Annual Membership dues are due January 1st . Check the address label on your envelope. The year of your membership follows your name. For example if it is ‘John Doe   2014’ or less, your dues are due. Applications are enclosed. If your label says life, 2015 or greater, pass the membership app on to someone else. Remember, Your dues can be paid online via Paypal and most major credit cards.


Membership Pins:                                                                                       

We are holding a contest to design our 2015 membership pins.  Summit your design on a 8 1/2" x 11" sheet of paper to ‘LESL, Box 45, Edinboro, Pa 16412’ or e-mail to or bring it to the January meeting for judging.  Entries can be up to 4 colors including the background color and must include the words "2015 Edinboro Sportsmen Member".  The pins will be 1 3/4" round finish size.  The winning entry will receive a free 2015 membership to the club and a $25 gift certificate to the Empty Keg.

Club Improvements:             LESL has invested over $20,000. this year to our club grounds and infrastructure. Thanks to D.J. Skelton Heating and Refrigeration we now have a new high efficient forced air furnace installed in our clubhouse. No more  Job Jonny! Water and bathrooms all year long! This makes the club more usable over the winter months. We installed four new state of the art, multi stack skeet throwers on fields 2 & 3. A big thank you to Zewe Electric for completing the wiring. Thank you to SCI Cambridge Springs,-for the use of the club grounds, their maintenance staff replaces most of the pistol backstops on the pistol range and we have plans for replacing the rest and improving drainage on the remainder in the spring. Thanks to all the club members and businesses that continue to lend a hand and to make LESL one of the premier Sportsman’s Clubs in Pennsylvania!
