 5. Secretary Report-Kent Harris

    • Target Inventory:   60,245 targets were thrown plus 10% breakage for a total of 66,270 total targets used in August.  There was discussion that decreasing breakage such as education of new shooters and trap help could decrease the breakage number.  Keeping the traps in good repair and possibly reloading one of the lower skeet traps could decrease the breakage also.  Education to the trap kids that turning in the shoot tickets late is acceptable could also lead to a lower breakage percentage.  Directors will collectively work on those education issues.
    • Mailing Lists:  Currently there are three mailing lists to include Meat /Fun Shoot, Member List and Registered Shooters List.  These will be maintained by Lahoma once Kent gets her the information.
