Old Business


Plate Rack: Final cutting of steel baffle plates should be completed the coming weekend, then the final installation can be scheduled. (NOTE: Installation was completed on 6/15/19, and the plate rack is now available for use.)


Signs: Rick Fowler has obtained the new Safety Rules signs for the range, but he has not yet had an opportunity to install them.


First Aid Kits: Replacement/Refurbishment of the first aid kits is still a work in progress.


Barrels: No activity.

Driving on Rifle Range: No problem observed at this time.

Erosion: Water flowing through the cut next to the right pistol range is causing some damage along the side of the driveway. Chuck Novak suggested putting a "swell" into the cut.



New Business


Bob Dandridge: Member Bob Dandridge passed away on May 24, 2019. Our condolences to his family and friends.


Future Projects: Chuck Novak suggested we need to look at what is needed to build small pistol bays between the current pistol ranges and the rifle range. Chuck also recommended we investigate the feasabilty of putting in permanent bathrooms. Jim Samsel and Chuck Novak will do a preliminary survey/layour for the small pistol bays.


The meeting was adjourned at 7:42 PM.

The next Executive Committee meeting will be held at 7:00PM on Tuesday, June 25, 2019 at the ADPS Indoor Range, 240 Dupont Drive, Aiken, SC. All members are welcome to attend.
