It was decided that if we run out of meat prizes that the cash prize will be $15.00.

Kent Graham stated that each director should try to get members of the club to help with the shoot.

Abe Wilson will work on getting porta pottys for the shoot.  Abe will also get cones and caution tape to help direct shooters and try to keep the areas safer.

Other Business:

Ed Van Etten asked if the Club was going to participate in the Sportsman Show in early 2022.  After some discussion Don McFarland moved that the BGC participate in the Sportsman Show.  Ed Van Etten seconded the motion.  Motion passed.  Cost and exact details to be determined in future meetings.

Chester Carter reported that there are 15 control boxes for the voice release systems for the trap line, but that the club is short speakers and stands for the additional needed.

Abe Wilson is researching the cost and feasibility of converting the Pat-Trap rubber springs to metal springs.  Abe will report to the board the anticipated cost and other considerations at a future meeting.

Leonard Wehking was working on weed spraying by Ada County Weed Control.  Brian Francisco mentioned that he had not received notification from Ada County that they were going to spray.  Kent Graham will follow up with Leonard to see what the progress is.

Brian Francisco mentioned that there needs to be a system for the cashier to insure that new shooters read and sign the rules of the Boise Gun Club.  Kent Graham will discuss with the cashiers about getting new shooters and people who rent BGC shotguns, to read and sign the published rules of the BGC.

With no other business Don McFarland moved to adjourn the meeting.  Calvin Kidney seconded the motion.  Motion passed.

Respectfully submitted

Calvin Kidney, Secretary Boise Gun Club
