corrections or additions, a MOTION was made by Tom Skutnick to accept the Minutes as

read and was seconded by Karen Line. The Minutes will stand as read.

The Treasurer, Richard Line, read the Financial Statement for May 31, 2019. The

previous balance was $8.374.83. We deposited $2,182.88 and expenses were $1,696.33.

The ending balance is $8,930.38. With no corrections or additions, a MOTION was

made by Bill Benoit and was seconded by Karen Line. The Financial Statement will be

submitted to record.


BUSINESS THAT WAS DISCUSSED ARE AS FOLLOWS:

Fred said that hopeful everyone has plenty of ammo. The new law regarding the ammo

will take effect July 01, 2019. Let the representative know how you feel about some of

the California Laws.


If your do not have the new Drivers License with the bear and star in the upper right

comer, you will not be allowed to purchase any firearms. The new law takes effect

November 2020 for the new license.

Richard would like to have a challenge between all the Members. It cost would be

$25.00 or whatever you can afford. This would help us get money for some of the

improvements to the range. The money would be placed into a savings account.

Gene Roemhild we were planning on doing a surcharge on all Members? We have not

discussed that with anyone as of yet. If they don't want to do the challenger, then the

Membership dues will have to go up. Alan said that we would let the Members know

about the challenger going on and see what they are willing to do.


Bill Benoit wanted to know about a Newsletter. Alan said that we would do something

like that, but it would also include the challenger or anything else that should be printed.

Linda said that we could send the Newsletter by email, but people do not keep us up to

date when they change their emails. People would like to have the Newsletter quarterly

and just major items.


Annette Spiller would like to send a flyer about our up coming shoot in October. John

said that it is on the web site. The date will be Sunday, October 13, 2019. It will be

called the Ghost and Goblins Shoot. A MOTION was made by Bill Benoit to accept

October 13, 2019 for the shoot and was seconded by Earnest Williams. The Members

present carried said MOTION.


Alan would like to get more Members involved with the Club. He would like to find a

web master who can make the site attractive to the general public. The November sign

out from will be removed and we will put the new date up.


John will still do the flyer and the tickets for the firearm to be given away.

John said that he thought that he had the thrower fixed, but no. The man in Redlands does

not fix the Lincoln Thrower. John will try and see if Homer from Mojave can come and

fix the thrower. John will let the Members know how things are going on with the

thrower.


John said that on the Security Guards and their qualifying. Do you want to go back like it

was where you could shoot while the Guards were getting ready or do you want it where

you cannot shoot when the Guards are present? The Members decided that it should be

the old way. A MOTION was made by Bill Benoit to go back the old way, where

Members could shot while the Guards are getting ready. This was seconded by Tom

Skutnick.. The Members present carried said MOTION. NOTE: If someone does not

like the old way, then they need to come to a Meeting and voice their opinion.

John wanted to know what kind of firearm do we want to give away at the October

shoot. He said that we still have the shotgun that we purchased last year. The Members

agreed to give the shotgun away.


Alan said that the Senior Partners has been working on getting some advertising for the

Club. He already has one account and they will have their ads on one side of the building.

The cost would be $300.00 to $1 ,000.00 per month. Alan said that he told them that they

could use the south side of the building for the ad. He is also talking to Turner's and their

ad would be more due to the fact that their ad will be bigger. The money is not going to

the Club, but to the partners because they own the property. The partners have agreed

that all the money that is brought for the ads, will go back to the Club for improvements.

One thing that the partner's want done is to have the well dug. Lowell Daugherty would

do the drilling and would cost around $8,000.00. Alan thought that one of the partner's

would go the four comers to Pilot and see if they would like to advertise on our building.


We do not want to paint the building as of yet.


With all the advertising that could be going on, we will need more lights for the

protection.


After we drill the well, we want to change the fence line on the south side to have a trap

sight. We would like to get a container for the south side to house all the trap equipment.

Board needs to authorize trade outs for items instead of paying. It would be like a barter

system.


Alan would also like to see the Club 100% NRA Members. By do this we would be able

to get a grant from the NRA for range improvements.


With no further business to discuss, a MOTION was made by Karen Line to adjourn the

General Meeting and was seconded by Earnest Williams. The President, Fred Spiller,

adjourned the General Meeting at 10:34 am.

BUSINESS THAT WAS DISCUSSED ARE AS FOLLOWS:

Fred said that all he has is; to let your elected official know how you feel with regards to

the ammunition or anything that is going on with the State of California with regards to

gun Laws.


The new Law for the ammunition should have never been started. There was a case filed

in July 2018 regarding this matter. The NRA and CRP A have filed a Motion to stop the

sale until it is settled in the Courts. They should have an answer by the end of August.

Also, if you do not have the firearm that you are trying to purchase the ammo for, you

cannot buy the ammo. This does not help Law Enforcement, Security Guards or any

Correctional Officers who have to practice.


Richard stated that if you are going to do the challenge between the Members or

Business, the checks has to be made out the either Rick Line or Linda Lee Chevalier.

There are two businesses that did the challenge, also.

John informed the Members that someone is moving the rifle benches around and is not

putting them back. The benches will be fastened to the ground and welded. The benches

will be permanent.


If you see any mistakes with the flyer, please let John know. There is some misspelling

and the originals flyer will be on colored paper.

John let the Members know that we will not be open to the public. We spend 4 hours at

the range and we have only had 3 people show up. We do get a lot of calls, but most

people want to rent the guns and buy the ammo. We will not do this, due to someone

coming in using our guns and then shoot them selves. We will then be open to a large

law suit. We will try and open the range back to the public in September during the

hunting season.


Larry said that Alan was here and he asked him about painting the front of the building.

Alan told Larry to go ahead and paint half of the building. The paint will match the water

tower.


Larry is redoing the little trailer that will haul the cannon. He will need lights, a battery

and also get the trailer registered.


With no further business to discuss, a MOTION was made by Chuck Kinnear to adjourn

the General Meeting and was seconded by Earnest Williams. The President, Fred Spiller,

adjourned the General Meeting at 10:24 am.

BUSINESS THAT WAS DISCUSSED AS FOLLOWS:


Fred informed the Members about the law that Governor Gavin Newsom just passed. It is called the Red Law. So do not post your name on face book or any other place where you let people know that you have guns. Newsom has now made it where any body you know could call the Police and say that they believe that you are dangerous to yourself and other people.

The next thing that you know, you have the Police at your door taking all your guns. Just

be careful what you do on social media.


Terry said that California wants you to buy an electric car, and then they turn the

electricity off, which leaves you nowhere to go in any emergency.

Linda said the reason why we did not have a lot of people at the Halloween shoot, is

because it was Veterans Day and a 3-day weekend. There were also two different things

for the Black powder shoots to go. That was the reason for a low turn out. We can still

have a Halloween shoot, but on the 25th of October or a Turkey Shoot on November 14,

2020. Terry believes that it could be Members and their family instead of having the public come in. Fred said that it could make it a Family Members Day. Someone said

that it could be both days. We have enough time to think about what we have to do.

John said that he has nothing at this time, but he is working on a few things. Fred said

that it is tiny targets and John agreed.


Larry said that Tom Skutnick bought the green clay's and got refunded the money for

them. We are going to try the green clay's in the trap machine. We might be able to see

the clay's better. We will try the green clay's in December.

Larry said that we have not painted the building as of yet. Linda thinks that it is the

wrong time of the year now.


Karen Line wanted to know for the Annual Dinner could we have something different for

the food? Linda said that she would try and obtain a menu from Mo. What Mo has told

Linda in the past, that he can prepare just about anything. By changing the menu a little,

we could save some money. We could have a barbecue, which would include baked

beans and maybe a salad. We have sometime to think what we would like to have for the

dinner.


Larry wanted to know what kind of firearm we should give away at the Annual Dinner.

Fred said that most people want a pistol. We could get a 9mm or a 45 pistol. We could

also obtain a 357-lever action rifle. John still has the 308 rifle that Lynn won at the

Annual Dinner. So Members believe that we should take it back, so Linda will call her

and see just what she wants to do with the rifle.


With no further business to discuss, a MOTION was made by Tom Skutnick to adjourn

the General Meeting and was seconded by Chuck Kinnear. The President, Fred Spiller

adjourned the General Meeting at 10:27 am.
