Minutes of prior meeting:

Motion: Fleming Second: Reynolds
To approve prior minutes as presented.
Passed: by voice vote

Correspondence:

President and Secretary reported that there was no major correspondence to report. The gun clubs received notification of the new rule pertaining to eye and ear protection for field help. Secretary reported that the only other correspondence was copies of emails between committees as things were being setup and finalized for the State Shoot.

Delegates report:

Delegate Williamson reported that there was problem with shooters that were signing up after having not shot for several years. ATA rule states that they must shoot at their last known yardage and do not get to restart at the 20 yard line. Reported that directors should ask what yardage they thought they shot and handicap them at that yardage - discourage them from playing any money in case that yardage is wrong - contact ATA on Monday to find out what the yardage should be.

The new rule regarding to eye and ear protection pertains to shooters as well as field help.

Reported that she would be handing out a survey on possible rule changes that would be brought up at the Grand this year. Several comments were made regarding the wording of some of the questions and their meanings - Williamson reported that the wording was to be changed at the Grand but at this time this was what had been given to the Delegates.

New/Replacement Directors:

Secretary reported that the Northern Zone was the only zone with open slots and Zone Vice President Reynolds reported that they had no changes to report at this time.

Treasurers report:

Treasurer Fleming reported that we had a record number of presquads this year - 459 vs 224 last year. Reported that the cost of the State Shoot program was $7000 and with the advertising this year brought the cost down to $4800 within reason of the budget. Also reported that on Sunday we signed up $51,000 in preshooter and we were off to a great start.

Reported that all invoices that needed to be paid under this years expenses should be turned in before the end of the week.

Committee reports:

Committee chairs reported on workings of their committees. Media chair reported that they were putting together a media shoot to be held on Wednesday in the hopes of generating some positive media - stated that Director Bunch was working on a trophy award for this event.

Directors were reminded that help would be needed on the handicap and shootoff committees.

New business:

Treasurer Fleming and Secretary Crawford brought to the floor the need for the association to have a storage facility that is dry. Current storage being used on the grounds at Kingsburg has created enough moisture to destroy some of the financial records that are being kept there. Secretary reported that she and the Treasurer were asking the Board if they would agree to the creation of a monthly charge to acquire a unit in a local storage facility in Kingsburg. Director Beer had been asked to check into pricing and availability.

Motion: Edwards Second: Yamaguchi
To approve CGSTA finding funds for the renting
of a storage facility for corporate records.
Passed: by voice vote

Director Kirby brought to the floor the need to add a AAA class at the Zone Shoots. Reported that he felt that it was unfair that the AA shooters were having to compete against the AAA shooter and since we had AAA at the State the Zone should reflect the same classification. Also stated that if we didnít add the AAA to the Zone then the team should be made up of the five highest scores. Discussion ensued on the topic and resulted in no motion being presented.

Old business:

None was brought to the floor.

With no further business being brought to the floor:
Motion: Kirby Second:
Erwin
To adjourn meeting at 11:48 a.m.
Passed: by voice vote
