Treasurers report was read and approved.

Thanks to all that helped put in styrofoam and cleaned up the grounds.
Thank you to John for cutting the lawn.

New Business:

Looking for new ideas for fun activities.
A discussion was had to come up with ideas to get more people to join that are willing to work the events at the club and not just come out and shoot up the range. An idea was brought up that we should charge a larger fee upfront and earn points to get money back at the end of the year. One idea was to charge $250 member dues and either $225 can be earned back throughout the year by earning points for working events and attending meetings. This would be re-visited annually. If not in compliance the member can be dismissed from the club. It was decided that we would table the discussion until the September meeting.

Doug brought up that the trailer we use for the tractor pull with the fryers in is being sold. We may have a chance to buy if the price is right.

Tom made a motion to adjourn and was second by Kermit.
