|Officers Meeting Location: Pine Belt Sportsman Club - The meeting was called to order by Ben Galioto at 10:45 a.m. Four officers and one club representative were present, for a total of five voting members.
Treasurer's Report: Nick Pino, Treasurer, notified the officers and club members that our current balance is a staggering $2,670.50. This is after incurring a $389 net loss from the 2016 State Shoot. This figure includes all payments for State Shoot and payouts. The Treasurer's report was accepted.
Old Business: Ben Galioto introduced a motion for a second vote to modify the state minimums in order to qualify for the State Team. The mandatory state minimums will be lowered to 800-600-600-600 respectively. A total of 300 targets in each gauge are to be shot in the state of New Jersey. The only mandatory tournament will be the NJ State Shoot, and shooters will be expected to shoot all four guns (12ga, 20ga, 28ga, and 410 bore)in order to qualify for the State Team. The motion was passed by a vote of 5-0. There will be one more vote on this motion.
Open Discussion: The current officers will work diligently to prepare next year's 2017 schedule, by contacting Joint Base (Ernie Yeager & James Garrett), Bill Shanok (Wayside Skeet Club), Ed Whitman (Florham Park), and Ed Amaty (Central Jersey Gun Club).
During the open discussion, it was agreed by the officers to have our by-laws reviewed, discussed, and potentially updated in order to make them more functional, given our current skeet environment.
