People are still wanting to start a Trap League, we need volunteers to run a league.
Rifle Pistol Range construction is progressing well, Pistol range concrete slab is done, steel roof supports are up. Rifle side underground work is done, concrete slab should be poured by June 7th, and steel roof supports installed the following week. The berms and ranges have been contoured and graded according to our plans. The 12,000 volt PG&E line is scheduled to be re-routed in July, after that is complete we can start the Range office building construction.
We are asking all members of all clubs to not go into the construction area which is the rifle pistol parking lot or on the range itself, if you are in the construction business and would like to offer your expertise and thoughts please send me an email to initiate communication, we value all the professional input and help you may offer.

Secretary Ed Collins read Section 4.09 of the Bylaws for the third time in successive meetings. This was done in order to properly change Section 4.09. The Section is written as follows: “The President, with approval of the Board, shall appoint no later than March of each year, a nominating committee of at least two members in good standing, whose duties shall be to present the names of candidates for each elective office. These names shall be submitted to the membership at the general membership meeting in May and shall be voted on at the general membership meeting in June. Nominations for all elective offices shall also be open from the floor at the time of election. “
Secretary Ed Collins then read the proposed change to Bylaw Section 4.09. Again this was the third reading in successive club meetings. The proposed Bylaw change as motioned at the March 16th meeting, “The President, with approval of the Board, shall appoint no later than March of each year, a nominating committee of at least two members in good standing, whose duties shall be to present the names of candidates for each elective office. These names shall be submitted to the membership at the general membership meeting in May and shall be voted on at the general membership meeting in June. Nominations for all elective offices shall be closed at the meeting prior to the election meeting.
Vice President Brophy motioned that the change to Bylaw Section 4.09 be adopted. Bill Vencill gave the second. The vote was called and the motion passed with 15 members in favor and 1 member opposed.
As to the coming year, Nomination Committee Chairman Ron McCurry addressed the membership present and opened the nominations for the offices of President, Vice President, Secretary, Treasurer, and Board of Directors. Outside of the current officers and directors no one else expressed interest in the positions. Chairman McCurry then nominated Peter Llama for president, Richard Brophy for vice president, Jackie Collins for treasurer and Ed Collins for secretary. Chairman McCurry also nominated current Directors Gary LeRoy and Dorothy Bayer to the Board of Directors. Ms. Bayer and Mr. LeRoy were not present, but it was assumed that they would continue on… As per Section 4.09 of the Bylaws all nominations were closed at the close of this meeting.
There was discussion about changing the club meetings to the second Sunday of the month, subsequently Vice President Brophy motioned that the meetings be changed. Mike McIntosh seconded the motion. The vote was called and the motion carried with 15 members in favor and 2 members opposed.
