The meeting was called to order at 6:02 pm and opened with the Pledge of Allegiance and a moment of silence for our troops.


The treasurer’s report was read by Hank Gaspari.


Minutes of the Sept. 3, 2008 meeting were read by Jim Parsons.


Discussion of old business:




New Business:


The suitability of Christmas party facilities was discussed.  They were well liked but those present.  Charlie Nelson suggested a vote on using the same facilities next year but then decided to wait on this vote until the February meeting when more club members would be present.


Bill Laudermilk is looking into obtaining new signage for the club. Signs needed include “No Broadheads” for the ranges, “Archery Shoot Today”, “Lock Gate Upon Leaving”, “Range Closed until after shoot”, “Do not move Targets” and “Broadhead Range”.


The work weekend will be January 24, starting at 9 am.  It was noted by John Guttry that there is plenty that needs done. It was noted that 8-9 of the bales need new covers and the rest of those needing repair can be turned.  Bill Laudermilk will supervise the shed cleanup and inventory.  Grover Hendel will supervise the walking range cleanup.


It was noted that club members are still moving targets.  John Guttry reminded everyone that target placement and location is the responsibility of the Range officer.


The 3-D targets need some work and repair to keep the heads from falling off.  Wood dowels or coat hanger wire was suggested.  A final solution was still being discussed at the close of the meeting.


It was noted that officer elections will be held at the February 4, 2009 meeting


We are still having a problem with non-members using the clubs facilities.  A means of identifying and notifying those persons is pending.


Adjournment – the meeting was adjourned at 6:27 pm.

The next meeting will be held on Wednesday, February 4, 2009.
