March 26, Executive Committee Meeting Minutes

The meeting was called to order by President, Jim Samsel. Officers present were Jim Samsel, Chuck Novak, George Laverick, Roger Ward, and Rick Fowler. One member also attended.

Minutes

Minutes of the February 26, 2019 meeting were approved as distributed.

Treasurer's Report

The Treasurer's report was given by by Roger Ward. Current membership is 310 (incorrectly reported during meeting as 311).

Armorer's Report

There are no changes in status of the Club firearms.

Range Report

The range report was given by Rick Fowler. Condition of the range is generally good. Members appear to be cleaning up after themselves. There has been no additional erosion.

 

Old Business

 

Plate Rack: Rick Fowler put out a request for volunteers to tear down the old baffle system. Response was so good, a second email had to be sent to say no more volunteers were needed. When volunteersare needed to install the new system, a notice will be sent out.

 

Intermediate Berms: The Range Committee meeting was totally devoted to the plate rack so action on the berms will again be tabled until after the next Range Committee meeting.

 

Rules Signs: A copy of the General Range Rules is posted on the bulleting board between the pistol ranges. George Laverick will post a copy at the rifle range the next time he is at the range [posted on April13]. Safety Rule signs for the firing lines still have to be ordered.

 

New Business

 

Barrels: two members have offered to get plastic barrels to be used on the range to use a barriers for defensive shooting practice. After discussion, the Executive Committee felt that we could accept the barrels, but only with the condition that they would be kept secured by the Executive Officer and only released for a specific event when a proper safety plan has been submitted.

.22 Range: A member has suggested that the club build a 50ft range limited to .22 caliber firearms. This would be a good place to teach shooting skills to young people without the distraction of heavy caliber firing nearby. The Executive Committee agreed that this would be a great future project, but it is not in the budget for the immediate future. There is a plan for moving the plate rack to a new "steel only" range. When that is complete, the Executive Committee may consider making the right pistol range .22 only.

Plates: The plates on the plate rack have become "dished" and cracked over time. The Executive Committee authorized Roger Ward to buy a new set of plates.

First Aid Kits: A member questioned whether tourniquets should be added to the first aid kits. It was pointed out that the kits have been on the ranges for several years with little or no maintenance. The Committee authorized $300 for refurbishment/replacement of the first aid kits.

Driving on the Range: The issue was raised as to whether or not driving personal vehicles on the rifle range is allowed. After discussion, the Committee decided that members may drive out to change targets at 200 meters, but must be careful not to damage the range. If we see that excessive damage is occurring then the policy will be reconsidered.

A discussion of ways to attract younger members was held as was a discussion of What was required to obtain FONRA grant money.

The meeting was adjourned at 7:58 PM.

The next Executive Committee meeting will be held at 7:00PM on Tuesday, April 23, 2019 at the ADPS Indoor Range, 240 Dupont Drive, Aiken, SC. All members are welcome to attend.

Respectfully,

 

George Laverick, Secretary

February 26, Executive Committee Meeting Minutes

The meeting was called to order by President, Jim Samsel. Officers present were Jim Samsel, Chuck Novak, George Laverick, Roger Ward, Kevin Lilly, and Rick Fowler.

Minutes

Minutes of the January 22, 2019 meeting were approved as distributed.

Treasurer's Report

The Treasurer's report was given by by Roger Ward. Current membership is 306.

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. Condition of the range is generally good. Stone has been spread on the driveway and along the left side of the driveway to reduce erosion.

 

Old Business

 

Plate Rack: Chuck Novak brought up concerns about the previously considered plans for repairing the plate rack. After discussion, the Committee decided to meet Friday, March 1 at the range to consider alternate designs.

[The committee did meet at the plate rack, did some testing, and measuring, and deveoped a preferred solution. That solution will be implemented on March 30. We hope that we will be able to return the plate rack into service after that date (we will send a notice out when the plate rack can be used again).]

 

 

Intermediate Berms: Action on rifle range is tabled until after the next Range Committee meeting.

 

Motion Detectors: Motion detectors have been added to the video system at the range. This will reduce the number of video records to be scanned to about 3500 per week.

 

New Business

 

Handgun Definition: Our General Range Rules (OPS. 4) allow only "handguns" using standard handgun ammunition on the right pistol range, but do not define what a "handgun" is. Members were observed using questionable firearms on the right pistol range. The Executive Committee voted to change the limitation from "handguns" to "handguns having a barrel length less than 10 inches". Please note: this does not affect the prohibition on non-handgun ammunition. .223 "pistols", etc. are still not permitted.

 

Permitted Ammunition: The General Range Rules (OPS. 7) limit types of ammunition that may be used when shooting at steel targets. The Execuitve Committee voted to ad +P and +P+ to the list of prohibited ammunition when shooting at steel.

 

Rules Signs: The signs at the range are outdated, and need to be replaced. The Safety Rules (SFT) will be posted on a large sign at each range. The Operational (OPS) and Administrative Rules (ADM) will be posted on smaller signs on the bulletin board near the connex and at the rifle range. Members should not take this to mean that the Operational and Administrative rules are not important!

 

The meeting was adjourned at 8:45 PM.

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

Respectfully,

 

George Laverick, Secretary

January 22, 2019Annual Meeting and Executive Committee Meeting Minutes

 

The Annual meeting was called to order by President, Jim Samsel. Curreent membership as of the meeting was 289. There were not enough members present to constitute a quorum. However, sufficient email votes had been recievied to certify the election of officers for 2019. Officers for 2019 are:

President:                             Jim Samsel

Vice President:               Chuck Novak

Secretary:                             George Laverick

Treasurer:                             Roger Ward

Armorer:                             Kevin Lilly

Executive Officer:               Rick Fowler

The Annual Meeting was adjourned

The Executive Committee meeting was called to order by President Jim Samsel. Officers present were Jim Samsel, Chuck Novak, George Laverick, Kevin Lilly, and Rick Fowler. Several members were also present.

Minutes

Reading of the minutes of the December 18, 2018 meeting was waived.

Treasurer's Report

The Treasurer's report was given by by George Laverick acting for Roger Ward.

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.

Respectfully,
