Discussion of old business:


The new “Range Finder” signs have been received and will be posted ASAP.  These signs remind everyone that the use of Range Finders at organized shoots is strictly prohibited.


New Business:


Charles Laughlin received the Eagle Landing Christmas menu folder from Charlie Nelson. Decisions about this year’s buffet style menu will be made at a later date.


Charlie Nelson announced youth instruction at North Florida Archers is running approximately 50 youths per month.


The menu options for this years Extreme shoot luncheon were discussed. Chicken and Pork were the favorites. There will be a $5.00 fee for this luncheon. Lunch tickets must be purchased ahead of time, at sign in for the shoot.  All participants are invited.


John Guttry presented Charlie Nelson with the “Alzheimer’s” award for his donations of equipment to the club.


The elevated tree stands are in need of repair.  The stands will be closed until repairs can be made.  Please observe all posted notices.


It was decided that a “Certificate of Safety” or “Safety Audit” form should be generated to assure that various aspects of the clubs facilities are inspected on a regular basis.  It was decided by those present that this would be a monthly inspection. This inspection is to be performed by the N.F.A. Range Officer or other N.F.A. officer as needed.  Jim Parsons will develop the form.


The recent rains have caused an increase in the mosquito population. The property will be fogged later this week to help control mosquitoes.


This year’s Traditional Rendezvous budget was discussed followed by a short and informal inventory. It was discovered that there are two boxes of plaques that can probably be made useable for future events.




Adjournment – the meeting was adjourned at 6:45 pm.

The next meeting will be held on Wednesday, July 1, 2009 at 6 pm.
