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. Members appear to be doing a good job of picking up brass, and the range was clean in general. The is still some erosion where water runs off the pistol ranges and down the driveway toward the rifle range. The range comittee is considering how to fix the plate rack ricochet issue. Aiken Systems is planning to install motion detectors in the week following the meeting to cut down on false triggering of the security cameras. The range committee is developing a work list for a spring work day.


Old Business

Plate Rack: Terry Overstreet expressed concern about whether or not the ricochets heard at the intersection of Kirkland and Old Chalk Bed could have come from somewhere other than the plate rack. George Laverick stated that the Sheriff's Deputy reported hearing pings immediately before hearing the bullets overhead, and rick Fowler reported that the videos showed a shooter at the plate rack (who was not violating any rules). There was no other identifiable source for the ricochets.

New Business

Intermediate Berms: Dennis Eidson pointed out that the intermediate berms on the rifle range need some refurbishment, and the 60 meter berm needs to be widened by about 3 to 4 feet. The range committee wil review the problem.

The meeting was adjourned at 8:23 PM.

The next Executive Committee meeting will be held at 7:00PM on Tuesday, February 26, 2019 at the ADPS Indoor Range, 240 Dupont Drive, Aiken, SC. All members are welcome to attend.
