March 18, 2014 Member Meeting Update

  There was a great turn out at last nights member's meeting and an even better discussion on changes for the club. It was unanimous that member's meetings be held once a month.  The decision will help the Board get information to the members as well as give members the opportunity to bring questions and concerns to the Board. The Board voted to waive the $50 non renewal fee for past members who wish to renew their membership before June 1st.  The cost of the membership will also be prorated for anyone wishing to join. All items the Board brought to the members relating to the By-laws were brought to motion and seconded; By-Law, Article I, Membership, Section 1 (C), Senior Memberships will include grandchildren 24 years of age or younger.  By-Laws, Article I, Membership, Section 1, (D), Family Memberships include spouse and children 24 years of age or younger for which you are the parent or guardian. The Board also heard much discussion on the prices for both members and non members as well as for trap, skeet and for sporting clays.  The Board's main goal is to do what is best for the club, both for its members as well as for the club's financial stability.  The Board has taken into consideration the changes requested by the members and believe a mutual agreement can be made in the upcoming weeks. The members all have a common goal, to make the club the best they can.  With that goal in mind, members continue to step forward to volunteer.  It's that help that will make Sportsmen's Gun and Reel a successful club.
