March 27, 2018 Executive Committee Meeting Minutes


The meeting was called to order at 7:00PM by President Jim Samsel. Officers present were Jim Samsel, Chuck Novak, Roger Ward, Rick Fowler, Kevin Lilly and George Laverick. One member was also present.


Reading of the minutes of the February 27 meeting was waived.

Treasurer's Report

The Treasurer's report was given by Roger Ward. Current membership is 304.

Range Report

The Range Report was given by Rick Fowler. The range is in generally good shape. Since there has been little rain, erosion is not yet a problem and the grass has not started growing. The posts for some of the steel targets have been shot up and need replacement. Aiken Systems is scheduled to visit the range and provide a quote for installation of a security system.

Armorer's Report

Kevin Lilly reported no change to the status of the Club's firearms.

Old Business

Infrastructure: Chuck Novak has not yet located a reasonably priced equipment housing (box). George Laverick has redesigned the membership cards to make them more readable by security cameras. Roger Ward asked if the card could be printed both sides. It is not possible since the cards are thermally printed. Roger Ward suggested printing two cards so they could be carried back-to-back. The question was raised about putting sensors for the keycards at the firing lines. George Laverick stated that this might work for the pistol ranges, but not the rifle range since sensors must be within 300ft of the controller which is located near the gate.

FONRA Banquet: Kevin Lilly reported that the FONRA banquet went well, but he has not heard how it did financially.

Camping Area: Chuck Novak reported that the Eagle Scout candidate needed a little more time to prepare his presentation so it will be delayed until next month.

New Business

Target Mounting: Someone has been mounting targets directly to the supports for the steel targets. This is not acceptable. It damages the support, and it also means the the target is to low, and the bullet will likely hit the ground rather than the berm.


77 Meter Berm: Dennis Eidson has requested widening the 77 meter berm.


The meeting was adjourned at 7:20PM.

The next Executive Committee meeting will be held at 7:00PM on Tuesday, April 24, 2018 at the ADPS Indoor Range, 240 Dupont Drive, Aiken, SC. All members are encouraged to attend.



George Laverick, Secretary
