Old business:

The reservations for the Annual Christmas party have been secured. The Christmas party is scheduled for Saturday, December 18, 2010

The turnout for the annual extreme shoot was very good. Charlie Nelson commented he had a shoot from out of state thank the club for a great shoot.

The treestands on the broadhead range have had a safety harness attachment point installed.

The proposed change of meeting night was discussed. It was determined that plane traffic seems to be variable enough that it may be a problem any day of the week. No change in meeting night was made

New Business:

Charlie Nelson announced that the youth archery program turnout has been slow.

The road to the park has had some speeders lately. Members are reminder of the 15mph speed limit which may be monitored by local police.

A Christmas party committee was formed to contact members for notice and commitments to the dinner. The party consists of Charlie Nelson, John Guttry and Kevin Booth. Dinner is expected to be $12/plate for youth and adults, free for children 8 and under.

The next regular club meeting will be January, 2011. Date to be determined.

John Guttry suggested a special meeting for officers only the first week of December (12/1/10) to firm up the details for the Christmas Party.

Shrubbery at the gate entrance has grown to a point where it is difficult to exit the club without actually pulling out into the roadway. Allen Sparkman and John Guttry will trim back the shrubbery for a better view of approaching traffic. 

Hunting season is approaching.  Everyone is reminded that braodheads are allowed only on the designated broadhead range. No broadheads are to be used on the line range or walking ranges at any time.

Adjournment – the meeting was adjourned at 6:30 pm.
The next meeting will be held January 2011.
