Corresponding Secretary Report – Sent an email reminder about 28 June 2021 General Membership meeting.

CGC Training Group Activities Report The CGC Training Group did not have CGC Training Fund data to report until later. On 28 June 2021, the actual CGC Training Fund balance was $5233.36. The CGC NRA Training Counselor conducted 6 NRA instructor courses and pre-qualifications, with help from Barbara Vanner and Bob Berrettini. CGC NRA Instructors provided 14 ½ hours of firearms safety and proficiency training for 14 shooters during end of May and month of June 2021. Bob Berrettini provided 16 hours of rifle training for 12 shooters at the Project Appleseed event at Quarryville, PA on 19-20 June 2021. The Vice President reminded members that 2020 and 2021 saw unprecedented numbers of gun sales in the U.S…many by first-time gun owners. If anyone knows a new gun owner, please remind them to get training. You do not have to be a CGC member to register for NRA training courses. Firearms training is an investment in public safety. See the 28 June 2021 CGC NRA Training Group Activities Report for additional information.

For the Good of the Club – From Trustee Phil Dyche. Beginning with the November meeting, processing new members makes General Membership meetings excessively long…causing some members not to attend some meetings. Additionally, Club member NRA instructors who in-process new members are sometimes on the range when Club business and votes are part of Club business. Discussion included considering limiting the number of new members voted on during a single meeting, conducting new member orientation and safety checks some other time during the week/month, how to activate/log/distribute key fobs, how to collect Club dues, etc. The decision was made to convene CGC Range Management to consider options.

From the Officers: In Compliance with CGC By-Lars, members are reminded that nominations for Club leader positions are due at the August General Membership meeting and voting occurs during the September meeting. Installations of newly-elected leaders is effective 1 October.

The meeting was adjourned at 7:24pm

Respectfully submitted,

Slim Connors
Recording Secretary, Carlisle Gun Club
