Welcome to the SandyPondSportsmans Association!
It was a sad day at the Sportsman's Club Tuesday, but with the help of our members, and the donations of food and assistance from club members--- We were able to have a very nice send off to our friend Lee Harvey. First allow me to apologize if I missed someone, and for those who did write down your names, if I misspelled it, again I apologize. Special thanks to Lee J, Sue and Larry who remained at the club to prepare and set up the food, and Jim Fowler for memorializing this event with photos.

There will be no breakfast in August. Thank you.
Annie Burlingame is leaving us after many years of service. Her last shift will be on 7/31/15. Come on in and wish her well as she moves forward.
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 enough 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.
