Old Business: Tim gave an update on the trap range project. When laying out the new trap range, Tim determined that there was not room on the club property to allow for safety zones. There was no configuration possible that would provide for a proper safety zone. Since the safety zones were not adequate the new machines have been put up for sale and the club will attempt to recoup the funds spent. Funds for the project have been returned to those who donated to the project
