Vice President - Diana Roederer

  1. Request for membership refund:  Due to unexpected move out of state, a refund is being requested.  Discussion held-These probationary members haven't received membership cards, nor have they done orientation or trainings.  Diana made a motion to refund the money, Dina seconded the motion.   Ed with further comments: since they never received the gate code, there is no issue with them coming on property; he sees no problem with the refund.  Vote taken.  All in favor.  Motion passed to refund the money.  Jonathan given the address for the refund.

  2. Golf cart for sale: Deborah Kardos brought to Diana’s attention that there is a cart for sale in Spring Valley Lake.  Diana contact the seller and it is a 15- passenger cart.  Seller was asking $2k but the batteries are dead.  Diana got her down to $1,600 BUT it needs 8 batteries and that would be $1,000, for a total of $2,600 to purchase the cart.  BOD reviewed photos and held discussion on pros and cons.  Discussion brought to the audience in attendance at the BOD meeting-George Ellison expressed his thoughts on the batteries.  Tim Smith expressed his thoughts as well.  All things considered, the BOD decided not to purchase the cart.

 

  1. AVGC SWAG: Strong Women & Guns.  This would be a new group of women who meet once a month for social interaction, teaching, shooting, and competition.  Diana went over the program concept.  She is requesting approval and funds of $1,000 to start the program.  After the initial start-up, the program should support itself.  Jonathan discussed financial logistics of how to keep the SWAG money with SWAG.  Diana advised it would be like a normal event, turning the money in to the club for proper reporting of revenue and expense.  The new group would like one Thursday a month for their meeting time.  Tim discussed his SASP program just getting off the ground and the possibility of needing Thursdays on P1.  Diana said SWAG would be flexible if Thursday is the only day SASP can operate.  Ed presented a question on the competition portion of the program.  Jennifer advised it would be IDPA as a representative of Apple Valley Gun Club.  Ed also questioned whether the “training” would interfere with the programs already provided by AVGC.  Diana explained the “training” would just be a 30 minute lesson.  Jennifer expanded that they don't want the women to just throw lead downrange, that they want to build and work on a skill.  It will not infringe on the training program we currently have.  Motion to approve the program and give $1,000 to start the program made by Jennifer. Second by Diana.  All in favor.  None opposed.  Motion passes.

  2. Diana canceled the coaches meeting on 8/16.  It will be replaced with a combo Coach/RSO meeting to be scheduled in the future.  

 

President - Ed Swan 

  1. Non-member waivers:  The events that we hold that are open to the public have non-member participants.  It is imperative that the non-members sign the waiver!  Some events are turning in no waivers.  Match directors that run the events are responsible for this.  George with a comment-the waivers that are filled out at the clubhouse are left in the book.  Ed: They should be signing in at the event as well.  Either way it is up to the event chair to make sure this is happening for each non-member.  It is part of our insurance policy!
       

OLD BUSINESS- 

  1. Jonathan-Update on Verizon Cell Tower: over the last 30 days we have received 3 months’ worth of rent!  We should see a cell tower coming soon.

  2. Dina-update on governing docs revision: they are done and on the website and printed off for the new member packets.

 

NEW BUSINESS

  1. Event Requests - Tim Neubauer: went over a couple of requests to include descriptions and dates.  Jonathan advised that the club has approved the SB County District Attorney Investigators Association Scholarship Fundraiser every year.  This year is it on October 19.  Anyone that wants to shoot in it can, and there is a BBQ after.   Also, Sonic Ear Protection has come for the past couple of years.  This year he will come on 9/18.  Motion made by Tim to approve the event requests.  Diana second.  All in favor.  None opposed.  Motion passes.

  2. George Ellison: Axiom media offer- they stopped support of the Site Builder program earlier this year and that is what we have been using to make our website.  WordPress is what is now used.  They mirrored our website with the Word Press package.  George sent a draft of the new website for BOD to review.  For $500 they will complete and switch over our website.  George made a motion to approve the $500.  Jonathan second.  All in favor.  Non opposed.  Motion passes.  George will complete the transition.

General Membership Minutes

August 14, 2019

Called to Order: 7:00 p.m.

Presentation of Colors and Pledge of Allegiance - Boy Scouts

Review July 2019  GM Minutes. Motion to accept made by Jonathan Weldy.  Second by Dina.  All in favor.  Motion passes to accept the minutes as written.

Quorum Confirmation - Jonathan Weldy confirmed

Reports 

Treasurer- Jonathan Weldy

  1. Report on account balances to include Business Checking, Capital Account, Money Market Account, and Scholarship Account.  BOD reviewed check register; no questions presented.

  2. Request for Funds/Bookkeeping:  Jonathan reported on moves taken to stabilize the club.  He proposed a change to the Treasurer's job by hiring a bookkeeper.  Sherry Oros is an outside bookkeeper by profession and prior member/treasurer of the club.  A job description was created by Jonathan and Sherry and it was determined she would need about 6 hours a month to do Quickbooks management, data entry, and posting of the finances to accountant for taxes.  She will have no check writing or banking authority.  It would be a cloud-based version of Quickbooks, so Jonathan would still have access.  She is $40 an hour as a 1099 independent contractor.  This change would help other Treasurers rotate through if ever Jonathan is no longer the Treasurer.  The future of this will help us get to the point of taking credit cards as well.  Jonathan made a request for funds of $3,000 for next year to get through the transition.  Motion made by TJ.  Second by Bob.  Further discussion held that this will be revisited in 12 months; Jonathan will calendar this.   All in favor.  None opposed.  Motion passes.

 

Secretary- Elizabeth Stuppy- no report

  1. Membership numbers presented by Diana Roederer: 628 regular, 484 senior, 129 associate,  total 1,241

 

Vice President-Diana Roederer

  1. Report on Education and Training: Defensive Pistol class coming up this Sunday.  Sign up on Eventbrite.  Basic Pistol is a prerequisite.  Women on Target on 8/31 and we need volunteers!   Basic Rifle and Basic Pistol coming up as well.  Check the calendar for all events.

  2. Announcement: 8 members passed shotgun instructors class!  Congrats!

  3. SWAG Announcement:  Strong Women & Guns. New AVGC women’s group meeting once a month to socialize, learn a skill, shoot, and complete.  Look for flyers and contact Diana or Jennifer if interested.

 

President- Ed Swan

  1. Change to the Range Monitor Program: the program has been met with mixed reviews in the past.  Monitors weren’t received well and have been treated poorly.  As such, there will now be a remote range monitor program with our current video system.  In the past we’ve only reviewed video if there were reports.  Now, random remote monitoring will be taking place because there are things that are going on that are extremely unsafe.  A policy will be written and only a small group of people will have access.  Since we already have the technology, we should use it to the best of its ability.  Any unsafe behavior will be handled as though a range monitor had reported it.

  2. Report on success of Train-A-Teacher Day/Thanks to Volunteers.  There were positive reviews and we will likely continue to do this every year.  A post-event meeting was held and there were great suggestions on how to streamline the event next year.

  3. Rylee Dawson: scholarship awarded.  Congrats!!!
