March Meeting

I'm beginning to sense a pattern here... This Monday, March 7th, is our monthly club meeting of the board and members.  It will begin at 6:00 pm with the board meeting.  Once that has been concluded it will be followed no later than 7:00 pm by the members meeting. Competition season is almost on us, our first ATA event is going to be held April 9th and we still need volunteers to help out with the scheduled events, (schedule to be posted soon or you can find it at the ATA site).  So if you can, please be at the meeting and bring your ideas, willingness to volunteer, potential candidates for hire, donuts, etc. Finally, these club meetings are held according to our by-laws, once a month, every month on the first Monday of the month.  In case you want to book those dates in advance, just trying to be helpful here...


We did our best to have a meeting Monday evening, really, we did.  But there are times in life when circumstances just get in the way of your best plans and it all just kind of sits there looking, well, kind of silly.  We didn't have enough board members present for a quorum (simple majority) so we couldn't conduct any official business, especially the election.  The board members did get together on Monday and made the decision that we should have a ONE TIME ONLY special Saturday meeting and election. The board members will be meeting at 8:00 AM and after they are done there will be a members meeting.  That should start NO LATER THAN 9:00 AM.  Once that business has finished, the election for club officers and trustees will take place. For anyone reading this who is NOT a member, first off shame on you; join, join now! Second we will be open for business at the regular time, 9:00 AM.  Please get your tokens and coffee as you would normally and ignore all the arguing and possible throwing of furniture.  And be jealous of the fact that you are not yet part of all this excitement. And another one of those annoying reminders about annual dues.  Pay them, pay them now!

Members Meeting and Elections

It's that time again!  On February 1st, 2016 there will be a board meeting starting at 6:00 PM.  Following that, around 7:00 PM, there will be a member meeting.  At the end of the member meeting we will be holding elections for a number of positions at the club. This is the most important meeting for us as members and if you can attend please be there. And just a reminder to those of you who enjoy procrastination, there aren't many days left until the end of the month and that is when your annual dues must be payed in full.  If you miss that date you'll have to go through all the paper work, the hazing, the odd looks from others who have already paid up.  It can get uncomfortable and even cause such emotional stress that you can't shoot at the highest levels we all know you can.  Why take a chance? Again, please make every effort to be at this meeting.
