  • Furniture in the trap Conex Container:  There have been a number of discussions over the years about furniture in the trap Conex Container.  Along with the current furniture making removal of trap equipment more difficult, the containers were never meant for habitation.                    The Conex Container is cold in the winter, hot in the summer and does not meet various safety requirements as there is only one means of egress in case of emergency.  Motion to remove and   dispose of the current furniture an prohibit the future use of the trap Conex Container as a habitable space by Hurd, seconded by Bezemer.  Approved.

    • The club has the opportunity to purchase 60+ additional cases of shells through Crow Shooting supply.  Price to be determined upon arrival.  Motion by Carter to approve purchase, seconded by Hurd.  Approved to purchase.
