At the last meeting, there was a suggestion brought up regarding hunter site-in and changing the

After discussion, it was decided that he would not be charged for his use.
Shooter’s World is closing and will no longer be taking memberships. They are hoping the Club
will be contact them regarding the background checks for the gun show. It was suggested that
we contact Jane at Goods for the Woods and RFD Guns for membership locations.
We have our annual election coming up. Joe appointed a Nominating Committee of John, Kelly
and Don Cook. The Committee is to survey the current officers about re-running and to recruit
individuals to run. Joe will talk to Tim regarding running the election for us again.
Roger advised that Windy Gap Regulators are no longer shooting at Martin’s Range. They
would like to use our facilities at the outdoor range. At one time, Mike Kelso was opposed to
them using the upper end of the 500 yard range. We don’t know if our insurance would cover
them as an “outside entity”. The Windy Gap Regulators are requesting that we enlarge the
parking area, install a storage shed for their use, provide cleaning of porta potty. They have
matches the first Saturday and Sunday of the month and offered to pay us $5.00 per shooter
(which would run approximately $1,000/year). Joe would like Mike to come and speak to us
regarding this request. Roger said that he doesn’t see any conflict. Joe feels that the Club should come first then we accommodate others. It was decided to table this until the January meeting.
Anita advised that we got approved for another raffle license.
There being no further business, upon motion duly made and seconded, the meeting was
adjourned at 7:15 p.m.
