c.         4/10/20:  It was moved and seconded to move forward with hiring Paychex to do payroll and monthly and quarterly taxes.  The BGC accountant feels it is a worthwhile expenditure with the changing of the board and the amount of work it takes off of the treasurer and also adds peace of mind that the work is getting done timely and correctly to avoid penalties and fines if done wrong.  Passed with reservation because of lack of monies being collected due to closure.

Discussion was centered around whether we should rent a generator for the state shoot or if we should advertise for shooters to bring their own generators for the shoot.  After much discussion and concern over the lack of monies in the checking account due to Covid closure, the board decided to advertise in the program to have shooters bring their own generators.
