Meeting came to order, and all was asked to pay
tribute to our American Colors by reciting the pledge of allegiance.
Upon conclusion Mr. Laudermilk asked all attendee's to pay tribute
to our men in uniform by saying a silent prayer for those serving
our Nation in foreign and domestic lands.
Mr. Laudermilk then asked that the minutes be
provided from previous meeting of 06 October 2015. Mr. Nelson
provided the minutes as follows.
Mr. Nelson was approved to accept all monies
being given to the club for the purpose of Christmas Dinner by all
attendee's due to the confusion for the total number of past
attendee's to diner. Mr. Nelson said he must turn numbers over to
the diner provider one week prior to actual diner. Mr. Nelson said
this was no easy task as hundred of people and dollars are involved.
Discussion by Mr. Laudermilk concerning the
Archer of the Year Award forthcoming, was without conclusion as to
whom would be receiving the award. Persons without names being given
were discussed as contributors to club efforts as well, and it was
concluded that additional recognition should be given to those as
well, as well as the Archer Of the Year.
Mr. Laudermilk then made another statement
concerning the woods targets and the maintenance needed for them. He
said he will attempt to put covers on all of the woods targets. He
stated all he needed was some lumber.
Discussion of the danger involving the Youth
range and its users. Mr. Nelson said he had had problems with
archers with adult bows using the youth range and arrows were
winding up on the Bike Trails. This needs to be corrected with a
back drop or the removal of the youth range all together, as we as a
Club cannot continue ignore the danger.
Discussion of the Traditional target placement
was also an issue. It was stated that the fist 4 targets need some
kind of a back stop as well. This issue is to be investigated by
Board Members and fellow Archers.
Mr. Laudermilk informed attendee's of the
upcoming Election in Feb. 2016. He said he would run for the
President position and serve the total year. The president position
has been assumed mid year for several elections. This action By Mr.
Laudermilk will get it back on track. He then stated several
positions are needed filling. He stated that the Club is in need of
a Secretary, as Mr. Nelson is just filling in due to the
shortage and he has other responsibilities he needs to monitor. In
addition to this, the club needs another Range Officer!
The hot topic of the day is what
constitutes a traditional Bow, and what Class should all of the
different bows be in. It had been discussed at the Oct meeting and
recommended by members in attendance that some of the Bows
owned by some members should not be competing with some other Club
Traditional bows as they have an advantage. Discussion by members
covered all aspects of each bow and what advantage if any one had
over the other. Conclusion was that there is no advantage. Motion
was made to keep the classification of bows be kept as they
currently are. Motion was passed and no changes to current
classification will be taken.
Minutes as read was accepted by attendees.
It was recommended by several attendee's that
rule changes should not be brought up and passed without due notice
to all members prior to the meeting. Members suggested that changes
being considered be posted on the Web with the date for discussion
by all members concerned.
