History

  • The club, originally called Sherwood Rod and Gun Club, was organized in 1940.  At that time, the club did not own any facilities, so meetings were held at a store in Sherwood.  The dues were $3 per year, which included a subscription to the Northwest Angler Magazine.

I took this photo about 10 AM, but since it was in the shade of one of our trees, I decided to use the flash and it made it look more like I had taken it at night.
YouNews Spider from space Spider from space
While plucking dead blossoms from my Petunia plant I noticed this unusual spider so decided to take a photo of it. After loaded the shot in my computer I saw that the design on it's back looked like some sort of 'space alien'. Interesting. Enjoy.

Saw smoke from a lightening strike in the hills above our place. Flew my RC plane with camera to check out the smoke. At the same time we alerted the fire department and explained we had a drone checking out the situation.
