a. Get rid of building – update – Morss will get track hoe up there this winter (March/May depending on weather) and begin demolishing the building.

The committee suggests we drop the Ouray and Ridgway Chamber memberships as they typically are not revenue generators. The only planned improvement this budget cycle is the completion of the rifle range, which was approved in Sept of 2011. The bulk of the printing and postage costs are for the membership mailings and redo of the club’s membership cards as well as misc. ink and paper used by the secretary.
a. Rocky Mountain Armament shoot
b. New sign for front gate – approved $100 for materials. Jim Buske will make sign.
To-Do items for future:
a. Finish rifle station (when we can) $1500 was approved at Sept 2011 meeting
c. Revise SOPs
a. Muzzle down?
d. Post lane rules on each lane at range (when we can)
e. Weeds - ongoing
f. Post signs on each lane noting what the lane is approved for (i.e. pistol only on north range, etc.)
g. Put ribbon around post by road or put up a flag on same post
h. Get longer chain for gate
i. New gate – add to master plan
j. Fix roof on trap house – add to master plan
