The Bob Sinkeiwicz Hall 
Following the last general meeting, with Bob’s family present, the executive board recognized Bob Sinkiewicz’s dedication to the Weymouth Sportsmen’s Club by dedicating the upstairs classroom to Bob with a commemorative plaque.

Bob was a true pillar of this club and responsible for its re-building. From now on all our general meetings will be held in the Bob Sinkewicz Hall on the second floor. WSC has purchased several rifles for the junior program with money the club received through multiple donations in Bob’s name since his passing. This was Bob’s wish.
