December Meeting Minutes - 5 December 2016

Meeting convened approximately 7:00 PM in the upper floor of The Deep. 14 members attending.

Old Business

The club officers for the next year are:

  • President - Ed "Big Daddy" Maslin
  • Vice President - Scott "Jester" Jeffery
  • Treasurer - David "Moneybags" Lanteigne
  • Secretary - Ray "Redhorse" Bushnell
The club is officially re-chartered for 2017. Tom Clark (as his final act as club secretary) thanked everybody who responded to his query about IPMS memberships as part of building the charter package for renewal. He also took the time to update the club roster.

After asking if the store will be open, it was decided to go ahead with the scheduled meeting on Monday, 2 January, which will be the club's annual swap meet and exchange.

New Business

The annual New Year's club dinner has not been scheduled yet, but the club voted to hold it at El Coyote. Details to follow as soon as we make them up. 

Show & Tell
