May 23, 2017 Executive Committee Meeting Minutes
The meeting was called to order at 7:00PM by President Jim Samsel. Officers present were Jim Samsel, Chuck Novak, Roger Ward, Kevin Lilly and George Laverick. Several members were also present.
The minutes of the April 25, 2017 Executive Committee meeting were read by George Laverick and were accepted as read.
The Treasurer's report was given by Roger Ward. Current membership as of the meeting is 326.
The Executive Officer was not present. Jim Samsel gave a summary of range issues. There are some additional erosion issues primarily on the right side of the rifle range. There is also a concern with water/sand flow from the right pistol range causing erosion on the driveway. The timer/irrigation control valves are not working. Approximately 400 feet of wiring would be required to add electrical service at the rifle range. Per Dennis Eidson, some kind of retaining wall is going to be needed at the 77 meter berm to prevent soil from washing on to the right side of the berm.
The Armorer's report was given by Kevin Lilly. There is no change to the status of the Club's firearms.
NJROTC: A check has been sent to the Aiken High School NJROTC.
Dues: We are spending considerably more money for maintenance now that we have extended the rifle range. Jim Samsel suggested that we need to raise the dues and possibly offer credits for participation in workdays, etc. It has been over 20 years since the last dues increase.
Cameras: The Executive Committee approved buying security cameras for the range.
The meeting was adjourned at 7:47PM.
The next Executive Committee meeting will be held at 7:00PM on Tuesday, June 27, 2017 at the ADPS Indoor Range, 240 Dupont Drive, Aiken, SC. All members are welcome to attend.
