3. Treasurer’s report: Since the P&L and bank registered was gone over at the 29April2020 meeting the only information given was that we have about $13,900.00 in the bank account. Turner moved to accept treasurer’s report, seconded by VanEtten. Treasurer’s report approved.
4. Monthly Target Report: 15 targets were thrown since last week while repairing traps.
5. Old Business:
a. Soft Opening of the Gun Club: Today is the first day of the club being open. Quite a few shooters have shown up and some were let on to the premises early, if they had prefilled cards, to shoot with Keppinger supervising.
****Keppinger took over the meeting at this point***
b. League: After much discussion about league and how to approach how we are going to move forward to get back on track, Turner moved and Wehking seconded to do a combined Spring/Summer league to run for 12 weeks starting with reserve night on June 3. League will run from June 10 through August 26 followed by league dinner on September 2. This was passed unanimously. Fall league reserve night will resume on September 16 as previously scheduled.
c. Rescheduled shoots: Turner has submitted an amended shoot application to the ISTA for the rescheduled ATA shoots due to Covid19 and the Camas reschedule.
5. New Business:
a. Handicap Marathon: On May 2, the Pocatello Gun Club cancelled the Handicap marathon. Due to the late notice, Turner (who is also president of the ID PITA) did a phone and email vote to all directors and the majority of the directors decided that the BGC was ready to hold the marathon on short notice. Turner enlisted some volunteer scoring help and we confirmed that our trappers would be available. The program was not changed except for location and perpetuals.
b. Weed Abatement: Every year at this time we find the noxious weed “white top” growing in the target field. Keppinger will call Ray to come and spray this weed before it gets out of control.
c. Components/Reloading order: the board had discussion centered around when we would like to put in an order through Crow Shooting Supply. After much discussion centered around this capitol investment plus the need to order a load of targets Bezemer moved and Hurd seconded that we start obtaining orders through the month of June and place that order at the end of June so that the orders are available for members to pick up by the ISTA shoot at the end of July.
d. Target order: tabled until next meeting.
e. Cashier: Gerry has retired and Bobbi has given her notice.
