Charlie Nelson talked about the possibility of having an ongoing youth program.  He said there were plenty of kids and groups who would like the chance to have an introduction to archery.  He also mentioned that we would need to keep the size of the groups to manageable limits. A nomination was made and seconded that North Florida Archers would support an ongoing youth program.

North Florida Archers dues  are not expected to increase for year 2009

Jim Parsons raised a point that in light of recent target movements and broadhead usage problems maybe a set of "Safety and Membership Guidelines" should be made available to all members.  Discussions arose as to how do that.  Suggestions included new member mail outs, website, etc.  A suggestion was also made to have a sign made so the guidelines could be posted at the club.
The club needs replacement broadhead targets.  Bill Loudermilk and John Guttry will look obtaining new targets.
Adjournment – the meeting was adjourned at 7 pm.
The next meeting will be held on Wednesday, March 4, 2009
