Meeting Minutes for December 12, 2016
7:02pm – Board of Directors met prior to the general membership meeting. These are the list of issues that were discussed:
- Bills for Range rules sign and trap parts were given to Jon to pay.
- Stephen again mentioned the Gun Law Seminar that will be given at the club Jan 14th that will cover laws regarding use of deadly force. It is free to members and people can sign up online at gunlawseminar.com.
- Steve also wants to go over budget to see where we can do some improvements to the club.

Election of Officers: All positions of BOD will remain unchanged except the vacancy of Recording Secretary where Jim Hacke will fill until a replacement is found.
New Business: It is suggested that we need signs to state that this is a private club “members only” since the pistol and rifle ranges are so close to the road we are finding more and more nonmembers using the facilities. We also need gravel down at the Trap parking lot. Rich Hoover mentioned that the gutters on the main clubhouse need cleaned out and fixed properly.
