4) President Report:
Randy Anderson reported he contacted Keith Hall about running a turkey shoot in May. Keith did not want to run the shoot, but suggested it be held in June or July, due to the number of activities scheduled for May, and spotty weather.
– Jerry Austil motioned we strike Spring Turkey Shoot until further notice. Seconded, passed.
– Randy also discussed the possibility of holding some sort of long range match, perhaps in the Terry BLM area.
5) Reports of Boards and Standing/Special Committees
– Action Pistol
Jesse Smith turned in $381 in entry fees from the last two weeks of the regular season of Action Pistol, and the Jackpot shoot that Marty Scheid ran in September. Jesse reported that since he started Action Pistol five years ago, they have collected $5,121 in shooter fees, and spent $3,365.42 in expenses, leaving a net profit of $1,755.58. He also reported that he is stepping down from running the Action Pistol, and recommends it be taken over by a committee rather than just one person. He reported that Jess Blankenship would like to be on that committee, as well as Marty Scheid, and he recommends they team up to head the committee. Jesse also reported that he thought Mark Soderquist was willing to help out on the committee as well, but he wasn’t certain of it. Randy Anderson assigned Jess Blankenship, and Marty Scheid to head the new Action Pistol committee, with Mark Soderquist as a member, if he so chooses.
– Cowboy Action
Jerry Austill reported he opened for trap shooting the last two weeks and would continue until they don’t have enough light. He reported there have been some 4H kids and adults attending the shoots.
6) Old Business
– Guns for Annual Banquet
Jesse Smith passed around a list prepared by Shane Adams, of suggested guns and prices, for the Annual Banquet raffle items. The Board chose to purchase a Glock 19, Sig 320, 6.5 Credmore rifle, and Savage .17 rifle. Marty Scheid motioned “We that rather than ask Red Rock for to work with us on the price, we instead increase our approved budged to $1856 to cover chosen guns and ask Red Rock if they will donate some extra prizes for the banquet.” The motion was seconded and approved.
– Spotted Eagle Clubhouse
After discussion about options for the clubhouse remodel, it was decided to go with a block wall, steel door, and a safe and shelves in the vault area. Jesse Smith agreed to make a floor plan drawing for the bathroom so it can be framed. Randy Anderson will contact Higgins drilling to find out how to winterize the new pressure tank and water lines.
7) New Business
– Safe area at pistol bays
Shane Adams submitted a suggestion by email to build a ‘safe area/room’ at the pistol bays, where competitors in pistol sports can handle their unholstered and/or loaded firearm rather than doing it at their cars behind the firing lines. He suggested building the safe area out of railroad ties. The Board discussed the idea and considered using car tires instead as we can get them for free. The Board will revisit the issue when plans for the 2018 rifle range work day are discussed.
– Miles City Firefighters Toy Dance request for donated memberships
Jesse Smith reported the club received a request to donate one or two club memberships to the Miles City Firefighter’s Toy Dance in December. Jim Keith motioned, “We donate a membership.” The motion was seconded, and passed.
8) Nomination and Election of Officers and Board of Directors
9) Good and Welfare
