November 27, 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, Kevin Lilly, and Chuck Novak. One member was also present.


Reading of the minutes of the October 23, 2018 meeting was waived.

Treasurer's Report

The Treasurer's report was given by Roger Ward.

Armorer's Report

Kevin Lilly reported that there are no changes in status of the Club firearms..

Range Report

The range report was given by Rick Fowler. The range is in generally decent condition; however, we are continuing to see erosion from runoff from the right pistol range onto the driveway.

Old Business

Scout Project: Work on the campsite Eagle Scout Project will probably be rescheduled for February or March.

New Business

Camera Update: The motion detectors on the cameras are too sensitive so they trigger unnecessarily which produces large quantities of video files. The contractor is looking into installing separate motion detectors that have more adjustability to better control the cameras. The camera that was reported as "down" last month is back in operation after rebooting.

Rifle Range Status Lights: The Range Committee has proposed installing Red/Green Status lights at the rifle range to indicate the hot/cold status of the range at an estimated cost of $226. After a short discussion the Executive Committee approved the proposal. Some discussion ensued as to what the colors mean (other ranges are not consistent). This will be researched before final installation.

Workday Incentives: The turnout at the most recent workday was excellent. The Range Committee is discussing incentives that might be used to insure good turnout in the future. No action needed at this time.

Renewals: As of Sunday, 11/25/2018, 54 members have renewed for 2019. If you haven't renewed yet, go to the club website and click the BLUE button to fill out your Renewal Form.

Small Bore Matches: The Executive Committee approved the schedule for the Small Bore Silhouette Matches for 2019 (second Saturday of each month).

 The Executive Committee also voted to wave the annual dues for the Match Director because of the effort he puts in and because the matches actually pay money into the Club treasury each year.

The Executive Committee gave permission to the Match Director to store targets in the end of the rifle range shelter that are secured for use only by shooters authorized by him.

December Meeting: The normal date (4th Tuesday) for the December meeting would fall on Christmas. The December meeting will be scheduled for the 3rd Tuesday (December 18, 2018).

The meeting was adjourned at 7:31PM.

Following the meeting, the Executive Committee met in "closed session" to consider violations of the General Range Rules (observed on video) by a group of shooters on 11/05/2018. As a result of these discussions, one member was suspended pending further investigation.

The next Executive Committee meeting will be held at 7:00PM on Tuesday, December 18, 2018 at the ADPS Indoor Range, 240 Dupont Drive, Aiken, SC. All members are encouraged to attend.


George Laverick, Secretary

Remember to renew before 12/31/2018!
