Welcome to the SandyPondSportsmans Association!
Due to weather conditions the Board Of Directors has decided to move Club cleanup day one week to the 25th of April from 9AM to Noon with lunch and beverages to follow.
With the outstanding support of Senator Pattie Richie we are very pleased and excited to announce that the Sandy Pond Sportsman’s Association has been awarded a Grant to promote fishing on Sandy Pond. That grant was passed this week and to date we do not have the total Grant Disbursement Agreement. That agreement will define our ability and direction we can use the grant to support fishing on the POND.
Through a combination of efforts lead by Sen. Richie, Town of Sandy Creek and the Sportsman’s Club we plan to establish a program to encompass all of the Pond and area business friends to promote this area as a great place to visit and fish, both summer and winter.
Leading the Grant administration is Ms. Nancy Ridgeway, Town Supervisor Sandy Creek and Lee Harvey SPSA. Due to extensive effort prior to and following the grant application and disbursements Mr. Lou Box has been selected as the grant executor. He has accomplished a lion’s share of the grant application process and follow-up and will continue to establish a team to see the grant benefits all with NYS oversight. Lou has been the main stay in obtaining the grant for both the Town and the SPSA will continue head up the success of the grant disbursements to benefit the Pond.
I cannot thank Sen. Richie for putting her support behind us and the Pond. It’s an area that not only needs support but can prove its worth to support the economy of the area.
Stay tuned for updates on use and events.
