The meeting was called to order by President, Jim Samsel. Officers present were Jim Samsel, Joe Podesta, Roger Ward, George Laverick, and Kevin Lilly. One member was present in addition to the officers.


The minutes of the March 22, 2015 Executive Committee meeting were read by George Laverick and were accepted as read.

Armorer's Report

One of the Garands has a bent op-rod. Kevin Lilly is investigating repair options.

Range Report

No range report was given since the Executive Officer was not present.

Old Business

Range Fence/Survey: There is no progress as yet on the survey/fence project.

Range Officers: Range Officer training will be held on 5/8 and 5/9. (Secretary's Note: Since the meeting, eight SRRPC members and one ADPS officer have been certified as NRA Range Safety Officers).

Plate Rack: Jim Samsel and Dave Eggenberger took measurements at the plate rack to determine necessary shielding requirements to prevent ricochets from leaving the range. It was determined that a ricochet as low as 3 degrees will clear the berm.

New Business

George Laverick presented a re-write of the Guest Waiver that could be used as the annual waiver for members as well as the Guest Waiver. It is based on the waiver used by the Boy Scouts. Joe Podesta moved that we accept the new waiver form; the motion was accepted unanimously. The date of approval will be added to the form.

The meeting was adjourned at 8:00PM

All members are invited and encouraged to attend one of the New Member Orientation sessions. The next orinetation is tentatively scheduled on June 20, 2015 at 9:30AM at the left pistol range. Please notify the Secretary if you plan to attend.
