Memberships - Steve Seals
Discussion on what the prices were going to be for 2018. Wayne suggested as in a previous meeting that the overall prices for individual and family memberships be reduced. Much input from the group. Long discussion about the pros and cons. Steve Seals pointed out other groups membership rates, such as Archers for Christ, Emory, and Cinnamon Creek. Motion was made by Jeanette that individual memberships be reduced to $50 and that family memberships be reduced to $70 Freddie Crowder seconded motion. Vote was taken. Neal Kuznar opposed. Motion carried.
Ways to advertise memberships discussed. All need to post on social media about upcoming season. Also advertised at other tournaments if attended. Promote family and free range access for practice.
Steve Seals brought up a discussion about rolling over late joiner’s memberships if they joined after Thanksgiving. Again, discussion with all about pros and cons of this. That idea received negative feedback. Randy Probst brought up that the by-laws would have to be changed. No motion brought to change. Memberships for the calendar year will stand as in the by-laws.
Schedule for 2018 –
Workdays for January discussed. They were supposed to be prior to January shoot. However Wayne pointed out that the range is in pretty good shape. Not really much work needed.
Steve Seals reviewed the dates for specialty shoots already decided upon. T.H.E. Deerman dates need to be discussed and agreed upon. The ASA date is already established. Discussion about how many club shoots The schedule Steve proposed had very little club shoots. An active and lively discussion took place about specialty vs. club shoots. Steve Seals wanted to cancel January membership shoot and make the first Deerman a membership shoot. Jeanette was highly opposed as this was to increase family membersips and also T.H.E. Deerman is such a specialty, many families would not shoot it as the way it is scored.
