  President Martinusen brought back to the floor the letter of complaint from William Ellis.  The President had the Secretary read the letter in its entirety.  The primary context of the letter was a complaint against members of the Kingsburg Gun Club with him also stating that a CGSTA director was hostile and threatening towards him.  Also within the letter Mr. Ellis reported that he did not shoot the Sunday handicap due to the incident and he had not received a refund for that event.  President Martinusen reported that he had spoken with the parties involved and that the Gun Club had taken no action regarding Mr. Ellis and did not intend to do so nor had the Club banned Mr. Ellis and his wife from shooting at the facility as Mr. Ellis reported. 

During the discussion of the issue it was suggested that if a refund check needed to be issued then send a letter recognizing the receipt of his letter

and the Board noted its’ contents and hoped to see him at the State Shoot.

            3. Presidential pin – hand count – balance of the floor

    Discussion continued resulting in the following:

      1. Director Brasser released the artwork to the CGSTA Board.

      2. Board determination regarding restrictions of use:

                        Motion:  Reynolds       Second:  Kirby         
                        To remove the “specifically prohibited” items from
                        the letters issued to those that request to use the
                        logo.  No other changes to that letter.
                              Passed:  by voice vote

  Update regarding the Western Zone.  At the prior meeting the Southern site vote had been tabled until this meeting for the purpose of seeing if another club wished to submit a bid.  Director Sachau had contacted the President reporting that San Diego did not wish to host the shoot.  At the discretion of the President all date reporting and pocket schedule shows the Southern site as Redlands Trap & Skeet – the only other club in the South to submit a bid.
