Treasurer's Report

Old Business

Rule Violation: The member who was suspended for violating General Range Rule OPS.2 has attended an orientation and has has been reinstated.

Scout Project: Work on the campsite Eagle Scout Projectis still pending.

Work Day: The fire hose needed for supporting steel targets has been donated to the Club (our thanks to the member and his friend responsible), and Roger Ward has replaced the supports on all but the 200 meter target.

New Business

Swap Meet: A member has suggested that the Club sponsor a "swap meet" or "gun show" for club members only. The Executive Committee agrees that it would be a good idea, and has instructed the Secretary to contact that member to see if he would be willing to organize the event.

Dues: The Annual dues for 2019 were set to $125.00 (same as 2018).

Video Surveillance: One of the cameras has failed at the range. It may just need to be rebooted, but if it is defective, it will be replaced under warranty. Some of the equpment needed to upgrade to an NAS system is in, but the contractor has been short-handed due to illness. This will result in a delay getting the upgrade installed.

Erosion: There is some erosion on the left side of the driveway where water is running down from the right pistol range. When the Scout project is ready we will spread crush-n-run and regrade as needed.

Wedding Days: Or neighbors continue to hang signs at our gate asking us to refrain from shooting during certain hours. We have repeatedly asked them to give us advance notice so that we can put the information in the calendar on our website. They have said the would, but never have. This is an inconvenience for members who drive significant distances. Although we want to keep good relations with our neighbors, we have to take the position that, without advance notice, it is at the discretion of the member whether or not to comply with the signs.

The meeting was adjourned at 7:26PM.

The next Executive Committee meeting will be held at 7:00PM on Tuesday, November 27, 2018 at the ADPS Indoor Range, 240 Dupont Drive, Aiken, SC. All members are encouraged to attend.



George Laverick, Secretary
