May 27, 2013 Executive Committee Meeting Minutes


The meeting was called to order by President, Jim Samsel. Officers present were Jim Samsel, Joe Podesta, George Laverick, David Nichols, Kevin Lilly, and Roger Ward. Several members and guests were also present.



Minutes of the April 28, 2013 meeting were read by George Laverick, and were accepted as read.


Treasurer's Report

The Treasurer's report was given by Roger Ward.


Range Report

All irrigation zones were repaired, but one has quit working (probably bad wire). There are no leaks.


Armorer's Report

The Armorer was not present, but Jim Samsel reported that there is no change to the status of the club's rifles. (See new business as Armorer arrived later).


Old Business

Jim Samsel introduced Travis Nelson. Travis is a club member and has volunteered to assist the Executive Officer in maintaining the range.

The estimated cost of each target stand (unpainted and unmarked) will be $10 for materials. Discussion was held about an alternate design proposed by the builder (after the meeting, the decision was made to proceed with the original design). Members may continue to use their own target stands, but they must support the targets high enough that bullets will hit the berm and not the ground (real estate and political lawn signs generally do not meet this requirement.

There has been no further communication with Project Appleseed.

Roger Ward made a motion that the club no longer loan out the M1 rifles except for club sponsored events where the club controls/approves the ammo used. The motion was passed unanimously. The .22's will still be available for loan to members, but the Armorer should establish the current value for them and update the signout sheets with Executive Committee approval.

George Laverick reported on the responses of Cacee Enterprises to the questions raised about the gate quote at the last meeting. The original motion from the previous meeting was modified to authorize expenditure of $11,000.00 for gate installation including electrical power (after the meeting, this was raised to $11,500.00 by email vote). The motion passed 5 to 1.

Version 8 of the SOW for the 200/300 yard rifle range has been reviewed by the officers. The only change is that a reference to in Section 3.0 to paragraph 2.1 should be a reference to paragraph 3.3. George Laverick moved that the SOW be approved for issuing to prospective bidders. David Nichols seconded the motion, and it was passed unanimously.


New Business

George Laverick proposed that the club put a first aid kit at each shooting bay. Terry Overstreet indicated that he was willing to put one on the left pistol bay at his own expense. David Nichols made a motion that we accept Terry Overstreet's offer, and to purchase additional kits for the rifle range and right pistol range with a limit of $300. Motion seconded and approved.

Jim Samsel requested that all of the members think about ways that the club could use its income to meet its obligations to the members and community so that we can discuss the budget for next year at our next meeting.

Joe Podesta moved that the meeing be adjourned. Meeting adjourned at 8:31 PM.


The next Executive Committee meeting will be Sunday, June 23, 2013 at 7:00 PM in the ADPS indoor range.


There has been a complaint from a neighbor at the range about shooting before 8:00 AM on Sunday mornings. Members are reminded that shooting is NOT permitted before 8:00 AM on ANY day.




George Laverick, Secretary
