Please join us at the summer Ducks Unlimited District meetings planned for DU Volunteers and those who want to get involved in a fun and rewarding activity! This is our summer training session for current DU Volunteers and a chance for those who want to join us to get involved!
We'll all enjoy a dinner together and have some fun discussing DU. There will be prizes to win at each of these meetings and lots of great information about DU, DU fundraising, and what DU is doing for wetland habitat right here in Missouri! Feel free to attend any meeting you choose.
All start times are 6:30, except in St. Robert where we'll start at 1:00 pm. If you want come early and eat at the July meetings you are welcome to do so. Sorry but no food is available at the Baymont Inn in August, but snacks and drinks will be provided. Also, if you wish to shoot at the Andy Dalton Shooting Range (near Ash Grove) on July 10 be there by 5 or 5:30 pm. Shotgun and pistol ranges are available.
Special Note to current DU Leaders: We all know many of our important DU Volunteers do not monitor email during the summer, and some not at all. Please consider this email as a request to you, as a MO DU Leader, to call all the volunteers you mentor and lead and invite them to this important gathering for DU Volunteers. Encourage everyone to invite a friend to join us too!
Also for existing DU Chapters, please bring a chapter check to order the 2015 MO DU Gun Raffle Calendars. Our Regional Director will have some to distribute to chapters at these meetings. Each calendar has two chances to win a gun every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday in 2015! More on the 2015 DU Gun raffle calendars will be explained at these meetings.
