Gayel Alexander advised that they have 55 tables sold for the Gun Show to date with 18 confirmed vendors. The banner application is ready to go. There was a typo on the flyer so new
flyers are currently being printed. Remember, the Gun Show will be April 17, 18 and 19.
Mike Upchurch provided an update on our Gold Medal status. They are putting the stuff together and we should have our plaque sometime in March. There are only about 200 Gold
Medal Clubs in existence. He would like us to consider being an NRA Recruiter Club and the Club would actually get money back by recruiting.
Luann said membership renewals are going good with Choice and RDF Guns and they are getting it figured out and going more smoothly.
Jim Kingery was not present but did submit notes to Joe. He did speak with Cortez Electric about changing the lights in the Range. It would cost $500 to change out the lights in the actual
range and $300 to change over to LED lights in the meeting room. Empire Electric would refund half. A motion was made and approved to replace the lights in the meeting room for now. It was
decided to hold off on the range. Jim also mentioned in the notes about the possibility of purchasing a cabinet for the bathroom to house cleaning supplies, toilet paper, etc. This was
tabled until the next meeting.
