Treasurer’s Report:

  Treasurer Fleming reported that he was finalizing the financial information that would be presented at the annual meeting.  Copies would be available upon request.


Committee Reports:

  Juniors – Director Sachau provided a recap of the Junior Day held Sunday.  Reported that 276 Juniors had participated and they shot 60,000 targets.  Reported that donations were down this year but they still hoped to provide the Juniors shooting the State Shoot week with reduced target prices.  The committee would continue soliciting donations while on the grounds during the week.

President Martinusen reported there were problems with some of the voice release units.  He reported that the possible long term storage of the units was causing the problems.

New Business:

  Treasurer Fleming brought to the floor the Big 50 shoots.  Secretary reported that the ATA had decided not to charge the day fees for these shoots and when the CGSTA had one club decide to host these shoots the President had polled the Executive Committee members to decide if the Association was going to follow suit.  The resulting telephone poll showed that the majority of the EC agreed to not charge the State day fees as well.

  The Directors present were informed that Director Brasser had taken on the duty of assisting with the Trap & Field article for the State Shoot.  A member of the Trap & Field would write the final article but Brasser would keep track of names, scores and accomplishments and assist with the article.

  Director Sachau brought to the floor:

                  Motion:  Sachau         Second:  Erwin

                        Passed:  by voice vote

Old Business:

  Director Bunch brought back to the floor the Zone Shoot criteria.  Reported that since the Board had adopted the revised criteria he felt that all clubs should receive a copy of the new criteria.  Discussion ensued with no motions being presented for action.

With no further business being brought to the floor:

                  Motion:  Reynolds       Second:  Edwards
