ITEMS OF INTEREST:
Future new members: To help alleviate some of the problems regarding rules violations the BOD’s have decided that after January 1st new members are to come to the board meeting at 7:30 on the night they are to receive their membership. This is to allow the board to explain some of the rules and expectations that come with club membership. This is meant to be a meet and greet with a chance for the new members to ask questions and meet the board.
Trap house: The list of people authorized to use the traphouse has been deleted. Gary Granger has said that because of some new equipment and rules regarding the traphouse, he wants himself or Jim Walker contacted before some one uses the traphouse going forward.
