September 25, 2018 Executive Committee Meeting Minutes


The meeting was called to order by President Jim Samsel. Officers present were Jim Samsel, Rick Fowler, Roger Ward, George Laverick, and Chuck Novak. Four members were also present.


Reading of the minutes of the August 28, 2018 meeting was waived.

Treasurer's Report

The Treasurer's report was given by Roger Ward.

Range Report

The Range Report was given by Rick Fowler. A work day is scheduled for Saturday, September 29, 2018 starting at approximately 8:00AM. [Note: the work day was held on schedule and was very successful.]

Armorer's Report

In the absence of the Armorer, Jim Samsel reported that there are no changes in status of the Club firearms..

Old Business

Disciplinary Guidelines: The Disciplinary Guidelines have been published (Appendix 2 to the Member's Handbook, available on the website).

Signs: Video surveillance signs have been installed at the range.

Scout Project: Work on the campsite Eagle Scout Project should be scheduled within the next four to five weeks.

New Business

Rule Violation: Review of video surveillance footage showed a member violating rule OPS.2 (which requires that all bullets strike the berm). The target, estimated to be about seven yards from the firing line, was placed very close to the ground, and bullets could be seen ricocheting off the flat ground. This is considered to be a serious violation. The Executive Committee decided to go into a "private" session following the regular meeting to deal with the issue. [ The Committee suspended the member committing the violation until such time as that member attended and successfully completed the New Member Applicant Orientation.]

Video Files: The video system creates a very large number of small files every day. The way the system is set up currently, only 4000 of these files can be downloaded at a time. This makes it a very time consuming process to download the files for review. Rick Fowler is working with the vendor to set up Network Attached Storage with swappable hard drives to reduce the time. He does not know how quickly this can be accomplished.

Work Day: George Laverick will send an email to members reminding them that Saturday will be a work day.

Badges: George Laverick asked about using 7 mil lamination instead of 10 mil for the badges to save a little money. The Committee decided to leave it to his discretion. [It turns out the savings would be only $.04 per badge, so we will stay with 10 mil.]

The meeting was adjourned at 7:38PM.

The next Executive Committee meeting will be held at 7:00PM on Tuesday, October 23, 2018 at the ADPS Indoor Range, 240 Dupont Drive, Aiken, SC. All members are encouraged to attend.



George Laverick, Secretary
