2018 Event Matrix

Help is always needed on the different ranges to continue our improvements. 

IF YOU ARE SHOOTING TRAP AND THE SKEET FIELD IS ACTIVE, YOU “MUST” CHECK WITH THE SHOOTERS ON THE SKEET FIELD AND ENSURE THEY ARE IN A CEASE FIRE OR BETWEEN ROUNDS PRIOR GOING FORWARD AND RELOADING OR SERVICING THE TRAP HOUSE.  WE WILL BE GETTING A FLAG THAT WILL BE PLACED AT THE TRAP HOUSE AND WILL BE SHOWN WHILE THE TRAP HOUSE IS BEING SERVICED.   WHILE THIS FLAG IS BEING SHOWN, ALL ACTIVITY ON THE SKEET FIELDS WILL CEASE.


See Range Info Page for scheduled Matches, Results and Events!

We are asking members to assist in maintaining the range by putting your weed eater or mower in the truck when you come to the range and cut a little grass after you finish shooting.  If we will all do this, the range will always look good.

Minutes of Cleburne County Shooting Club, Inc. Meeting:            May 7, 2018

The meeting was called to order at 7:00 pm by President Jim Murray.

The Pledge of Allegiance was recited.

Members present: Approximately 45 members were present, including Officers: Jim Murray, Clyde Gates, Karen Swain, Darrell Magby Sr., Darrell Magby Jr., Donnie Hyslip, and Scott Swain.

President Jim Murray reported that the Executive Committee has met once since the last quarterly club meeting, however he explained that the Executive Committee is very active through emails and texts.

Karen Swain summarized the minutes of the previous CCSC meeting of February 5, 2018.  Motion was made to accept the minutes, it was seconded and passed.

President Jim Murray called attention to the patriotic NRA statuettes which were donated to the club by David Hargis.  These statuettes symbolize the spirit of the American people and the freedoms sacred to us all.  Clyde Gates built shelving to provide an appropriate way to display these.  

Jim Murray then called on each director for their report:

Secretary Treasurer Karen Swain gave a financial report on both the “Membership” and the “Shotgun” bank accounts, detailing the beginning and ending balances of each account for the last 3 months.  

Information included in the report: $9,211.55 deposited into the “ membership “(including annual fees for 57 seniors, 23 regular adults, 11 new senior members and 12 new adult memberships). 13 checks and/or drafts were written from this account in total amount of $6,164.45.  These checks included 3 non-usual checks to: Cleburne County Taxes, Sportsman’s  Insurance Agency Inc., (general liability) and MGM Targets.  Monthly deposits for skeet and trap into the “Shotgun” account for February, March and April totaled $1,364.00

She also reported that approximately 84 renewal notices have been sent to members with renewals due in Quarter 2: months April, May and June.  Approximately 73 notices were sent via email and approximate 11 notices were sent by mail.  As usual, notices sent by mail included a form requesting email addresses (if they had one), to be included with their check.  Currently, the email addresses have been obtained for approximately 85 % of current members.

She discussed an important change: The club is in the process of establishing an annual  membership period in which all members will have the same membership  year : July 1st through June 30th   Please note: Membership numbers will not change.   

This transition began with all Quarter II renewals, with members paying a prorated amount for their annual membership fee, and their membership year is now paid through June 30, 2019.   Members with annual April renewal paid for 14 months, May members paid for 13 months, and June members paid the regular annual renewal fee.   For the upcoming months of July through December of this year, those members will be billed for a lesser, prorated amount of annual fee, and then be billed for full year in the next annual billing cycle.  In January of 2019, those members who currently have renewal months in January through March will be billed, and have the option of paying prorated amounts for membership EITHER through June 30, 2019 or June 30, 2020.    By sometime around March 2019, all members will be established in the new annual billing cycle/membership period of July 1st through June 30th.  Please note: At any point, instead of paying for a partial year, (less than 12 months), members can choose to pay for their membership to be extended through the following membership year.

Membership cards with Expiration Dates of June 2019 have YELLOW backgrounds.  Membership cards with Expiration Dates of June 2020 will have a different color (to be determined soon.)

Karen explained that benefits to the club of changing to the same renewal date for all members are numerous, and will save countless hours of work, involving many record keeping activities.  She briefly described some of the following benefits:

·         SIGNIFICANT time reduction for determining and sending membership renewal notifications.

·         SIGNIFICANTLY fewer trips to the post office and bank will be required.

·         Preparing and mailing annual membership cards will be managed more efficiently.  The majority of envelopes and membership cards will be printed, as opposed to written by hand. Receiving only handful of renewals a week is very time consuming.

·         Everyone will always know their membership expires each year on June 30th.

·         Changing the gate code will be coordinated to occur annually in conjunction with the new annual membership year.  With this new membership system, paid members who are eligible to receive the new gate code can be easily identified.

 

Chief Range Office Clyde Gates discussed the club’s ongoing pursuit of acquiring power to the range.  He has already met with all of the necessary property owners needed for right of way consent.   All property owners involved have given their consent to allow right of way through their properties for power poles/lines.   He also met with representatives of Entergy, and is in the process of determining the cost the club will have in order to clear the right of way.  Entergy states they can’t provide a cost estimate until the right of way is cleared.

Vice President Darrell Magby Sr. and Pistol Director Darrell Magby Jr. reported on the new steel targets.  They will be used during organized club functions.  They will be holding “Fun Shoots” on the 3rd Sunday from May through November, 1 to 4 pm.  Magby Sr. discussed various safety rules and regulations, for both shooters and spectators, including the minimum distance required for the new targets to prevent ricochet.

Shotgun Director Scott Swain reported that the Pat Trap machines on the trap fields had been serviced recently, and were now working at specified parameters.  He mentioned that service to the skeet machines will be performed in the near future.  Maintenance on the Deutz generator was scheduled for the upcoming week. 

Scott reported that Young Life held a trap shoot competition at the range on April 14, 2019.  61 shooters competed in this competition.   

New Business:.22 Bench rest fun shoots were discussed.  They are very popular at other clubs.  We are looking at having some at our club. 

Target frames need to be constructed.  The need for these frames was discussed, several members are looking into materials needed and acquiring some volunteers for labor.

A Motion to Adjourn was made, seconded and passed.

The meeting was adjourned at 7:35 p.m.

__________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

On the first Monday of August, CCSC will have its annual meeting. At the annual meeting, in addition to the normal business of our quarterly meetings, we will have the election of club officers. Please think about becoming an officer. At this time, we have two slots that are vacant, and it is possible that some of the current officers may decide not to run again.

The first vacant office, Secretary, was newly created by the change in the bylaws that was done earlier this year. This change split the old Secretary/Treasurer position into two separate jobs. The Secretary/Treasurer job was the most labor intensive job in the club. By splitting it into two jobs, we can take some of the labor off of the Treasurer, which will remain the most time consuming job. The Secretary will be responsible for Minutes at both the regular club meetings and meetings of the Executive Committee. In addition, the Secretary will be responsible for club correspondence and several routine reports that are filed annually. We anticipate that the Secretary job should not require more than a few hours a month. The Treasurer will retain responsibility for all of the membership records and club funds.

The second vacant office, is Woman’s Director. You do not have to be a great shot or winning competitor to hold this position. There are many female club members who would enjoy getting together to shoot and exchange information. Someone who could schedule this time and be the facilitator is needed. The range you choose to use for your meetings (handgun, rifle, shotgun; your choice) will be reserved for your exclusive use during the time period. This is an officer position and attendance at regular club meetings and Executive Committee meetings is expected.

While the greatest need is to fill the vacant offices, members are encouraged run for any office. New blood, with fresh energy and perspective, is a good thing.

Please see Article 7 of the CCSC bylaws for further information. Bylaws are available on the CCSC website www.ccscar.com under the “bylaws” tab. Contact the Secretary/Treasurer at secccsc@gmail.com for more information, or to express interest.

NOTE!!

When using Pistol or Rifle Ranges members are expected to work together to insure SAFETY! Make The Line Safe when others need to visit the Target Line downrange. MAKE THE LINE SAFE! .. means all guns are to be unloaded, actions open, "grounded" and no gun handling until line is declared Hot! If your/another shooters report sounds "wrong", misfires or a squib load is fired.... Call CEASE FIRE!! That also means Make the Line Safe! .... make sure the bore is clear!
On the Shotgun Fields make sure your gun is unloaded, action is open when not shooting and practice safe muzzle control. If having a gun malfunction, slow down and think twice before doing anything. If your/another shooters report sounds "wrong", misfires or a squib load is fired.... CEASE FIRE!! .... make sure the bore is clear!

SUNDAYS!! ............ No shooting until 12 NOON!!

Note: Green Tipped M955 5.56 (223) Ammo is Armor Piercing

Please be safe when on the range.  

GENERAL INFO:  

We have recently had issues concerning both trespassers on our range, and the gate being left open with no member on the range.  These trespassers seem to be the worst in the days and weeks prior to hunting season, but can come at any time.  Please do not give the gate code to anyone.  Guest must be accompanied by a member.  You may not send a non-member as a guest unless you are with him/her.  On arrival, please lock the gate behind you unless a club event is scheduled.  Examples of these events include Trap, Skeet, scheduled fun shoots or matches on the rifle or pistol ranges, and club meetings.  When you leave, please lock the gate behind you even if others are on the range.  Members will have the gate code to get out, others won’t.  

Failure to lock the gate is grounds for suspension or expulsion from CCSC. Officers will be checking IDs.  

Please have your current membership cards with you.  Please do not be offended if you are asked for ID.  It is simply wrong for trespassers to use our facility without participating in the membership process.  At best they get for free what everyone else pays for. At worst, we have had vandalism and disregard for range safety.

Every month the newsletter will be posted on our web site. I have had a few requests to send out a copy by mail. If you know someone that does not have a computer or access to one. Either send me their  name or have them send me their name and I will get a hard copy to them. Please don’t just start sending me names, I only want the names of people who do not have a computer or access to one.

Please be aware of fire on the range! Only lead or cooper clad bullets are allowed. No tracer or steel core ammo is to be used on the rifle range because of the fear of sparks that could start a fire.

Please have your membership card with you when you are at the club. Our range officers will ask you for proof of membership. If you do not have your card you will be asked to leave or pay a $5 guest fee.

Please, we have stated this before. No shooting of shotguns on the pistol range.
