October 10th, 2017
called to order by President Bill Fowle at 6:58 pm.
Minutes to September
meeting were read and accepted. Treasurer’s report for September was read and accepted.
The Youth Shoot held on September 16th had 24 shooters. The group was
broken into 2 classes of 12. Brian was the instructor for the 22 and Paul and John Stone were the instructors
for the Rifle. We will need more volunteers for the next Youth Shoot. There has been
a lot of positive feedback from the parents and the kids. We are having trouble finding a solar light that
will light from dust to dawn. The suggestion has been made to get a “Christmas Timer” light
to stay on for a few hours that will be plugged into the electricity.
Trails Report: The brush cut will stop on Sunday. The
post for the bridge have been pre-cut.
Old Business: Ed and Bill met with the Logger. The trees
along the parking lot and others that have been marked will be take care of. One Tree by the parking lot
will be left because it is too big to get. Nothing will be left on the range when it is completed.
From start to finish it will take approximately 1 ½ - 2 weeks. The will not be any slash
piles. The Range will need to be closed for a couple of days during the week. They will
give us a few weeks notice for the Range closure. If logging is done during snow season the trail will
stay open. The loggers do not work on the weekends. The new signs are $443 per sign.
The Trailhead already has signs that need to be hung. The sign is a double sided aluminum sign to be purchased for
the Clubhouse/Range. The Electric will be $100 more for the box that was installed in the Clubhouse.
John Dole brought up the expense of $650 for the tree removal without member notice. The bylaws
state the limit for the Range Master is $500 but it does not specify per purchase or month. This will need
to be revisited when the bylaws can be changed in April. The tree was approved because it was an emergency
situation. The tree removal should have been split between the Range and Trails. Trails
will reimburse the Range for 50% of the tree removal. The were 11 shooters for the Pistol Shoot that was
held on the 1st.
New Business: There will be a Women’s shot on November 11th from 9am to 12pm.
There is a limit of 12 women for this shoot. Refreshments (coffee, water and donuts) will be provided
for the shot. The OHRV class will be held on December 2nd from 8am to 5pm. We
will provided lunch (pizza and drinks) for the OHRV like we have done in the past. Fish and Game Commissioner
Tom Hubert is leaving and they are looking for a recommendations to replace Tom.
Meeting adjourned 8:20 pm
