BOD & GM Prior Meeting Minutes

Board Of Directors Minutes



October 9, 2019

Called to Order 6:00 p.m.

Members Present: Ken Crawford, Ed Swan, Jonathan Weldy, Tim Neubauer, Jennifer Tornero, Dina McKinney, Ray Jameson, Diana Roederer

Members Not Present: Elizabeth Stuppy


Minutes:  BOD reviewed September 2019 BOD minutes.  Motion to accept the minutes as written by Ray.  Jonathan seconded the motion. All in favor. Motion passes to accept the minutes as written.



Treasurer –  Jonathan Weldy

  1. Reviewed the register, explaining any large amounts going out.  Open for discussion. Report on account balances to include Business Checking, Capital Account, Money Market, and Scholarship moved to GM meeting.


Secretary – Elizabeth Stuppy (Not Present)

  1. Membership numbers will be given at GM Meeting


Vice President – Diana Roederer

  1. Update on Break in: Last news was that a pawn shop in San Bernardino called and they recognized the photos of the 2 men that broke in. In reviewing the cameras again, the lights were left on at the archery range.  Diana thinks they were trying to pull the plug for a light, not the camera. Tim will hard wire the plug.


President – Ed Swan 

  1. Insurance re: umbrella policy.  Jonathan and Tim had a conversation about this and Tim is getting his insurance broker to look at our 3 policies.  It would be best to engage a professional to review policies and possibly see if there is anything more we can do to protect the club and its assets.  Tim stated that his broker will look at everything and give recommendations. At this point the BOD is information gathering to see if there is anything that we should be doing.



  1. Jonathan/Dina/Ray on Status of Grants:  Ray has been talking with the NRA Foundation.  He still needs some information from Tracey to closed out 2 of the 4 grants.  Then it is just a matter of plugging the numbers in to the website. He now has an account to get on the Foundation website.  It was transferred from Patti to Ray. We have until Nov. 1 to get them closed out. Dina advised that the due date for new grants is coming up at the end of October.  After talking with the Foundation this past weekend Dina advised the BOD to get the applications in for the new grants EVEN IF the old grants are not closed out yet, then continue to work on closing the old grants.  Dina suggested that Ray focus on closing grants and that the BOD put together a small committee to do new grants. Discussion was held regarding the need to figure out what the club wants and talking to each range chair.  Due to the time constraints Jonathan suggested using some time at the safety meeting next week to see what each range chair wants/needs, then moving forward from there.
  2. Dina: Question re: governing docs- at what point should the additional revisions be put into the documents?  BOD decided that a bi-annual update would be appropriate for membership approval and printing. Any policy changes in the meantime should be printed off as an insert.



  1. Event Requests – Tim Neubauer: Tim went over several requests in full detail to include descriptions and dates.  Motion to approve events by Dina. Seconded by Diana. Jonathan recused himself from the vote. Motion passes with majority approval.
  2. Jennifer T.: RBAV class-request approval to do it off site.:   Class would be in January at Jess Ranch. $10 per person. Jennifer went over their list of requests and requirements.  Jonathan moved approval. Diana seconded. All were in favor. Motion passes for Jennifer to conduct a Refuse to Be A Victim class off-site.
  3. Tim N.: SASP Report:  1st class was last Saturday.  Tim went over the success of the event.  He will bring a proposal next month for review.
  4. Jerry Laws addressed the Board: handed out bumper stickers.  Requested financial assistance for his Senate race. Board advised Jerry the club cannot give financial assistance to a political campaign.
  5. Tim Smith: There are two emergency items for the GM meeting.  Tim wanted to make sure the Board did not need to do anything prior to presenting them to the membership.  BOD did not need to do anything. Emergency items will be brought up in GM meeting.


Ed motion to adjourn. Jonathan second. All in Favor.  6:29 p.m. meeting adjourned.


Respectfully Submitted,

Dina McKinney, Director

  1. Jennifer-Banquet reminder:  There is a change of location this year.  Banquet will be held at Empire Banquet Hall.  The change is due to our event falling on Valentine’s Day weekend.  The good thing is that the Hall does just about everything! Early bird tickets will go on sale from 11/1-11/30 for $45.  Normal tickets on sale from 12/1-1/15 for $50. The cut off for ticket purchase is Jan. 15th due to the Hall needing 30-days notice for food.  The price increase this year is because all soda is included with dinner, last year you had to pay for soda. There will be a cash bar with the most expensive drink being $7.  Feb. 15th is the banquet. Diana announced if you have anything you would like to donate, get ahold of Jennifer.



  1. Diana Roederer: Re-cap of safety concerns for the previous month:  Since remote range monitoring began, she has seen a number of issues.  She implored the membership to do better and if they see something, say something.  She gave examples of the things that she has seen -terrifying things-. The membership is the eyes of the club. It’s not confrontation to say something, it’s about teaching the right way!
  2. We have a new website!  Check it out.
  3. Introduction of new members.  Motion to accept the new members made by Gary.  Seconded by Ken. All members in favor. None opposed.  Jonathan went over the financial commitment and Diana went over probationary requirements.
