Old Business: Steve announced that he got 15 new pistol target stands for the outdoor pistol range.
New Business: Steve will be modifying some of the old pistol stands with a spike on the bottom so shooters can stick the stand into the ground closer to the shooting pavilion for a closer shot. NOTE: If you plan on using the target stands closer to the pavilion please remove any stands behind it to prevent ricochets. Jim made a motion to purchase a few barrel or stand fans to have in the main hall to move some air during rentals and hall usage. Was a unanimous second. Fans will be bought and available to use by next meeting.
Good of the Association: Remember to police your brass and keep all shots within target holders. Also feel free to replace any shot up target holders at the rifle range. No need to ask.
