3.       Acrylic no trespassing sign for gate has been erected at gate

4.       Master plan - Mike Fedel is putting this together based on the feedback from June 9

5.       Bylaws revisions/tying together of waiver and bylaws.  Waiting for Robert Burns to get back to us.  No need to change bylaws, they already give the board the power to make needed changes as noted here:  Per Robert Burns, according to our current bylaws:  The board of directors is charged with the duty to exercise reasonable care and prudence in the administration of the affairs of this Corporation and has the right powers, duties and responsibilities.  In the exercise of these responsibilities, the Board has developed a range waiver and membership application to inform the members of their respective duties and responsibilities as a condition of membership of the Chief Ouray Gun Club.  Summary:  no need to amend bylaws...board already has the authority to make/amend rules of range use.  Does not need to set notice of meeting/vote, does not need to seek member vote.

6.       Appleseed shoot.  Jim Buske will get hold of the Appleseed folks.  Board voted to work on this as a 2014 event.

c.       Proposed new signage per Robert Burns (below).  Sign specs:  3/16" thick, red background, white lettering, size is 12" x 18".  Should have multiple such signs around perimeter of range property.  5 signs = $63.60 each.  If fewer are ordered, price per sign increases.  5 signs approved by board.  Gayle will order.

d.      Ron Avery called 7/24 to say he is taking a guy to the range for instruction from Aug 19-23.  Reiterated that we needed a copy of his insurance certificate naming COGC as additional insured.  Also reiterated that he needs to collect a $10 range fee per day and pass along to COGC.  Says he will do this.
