Reports of committees

 

2011 Gun Show Committee Report

 

·         Food update for gun show.  Ryan at Best Western doesn’t have anyone available to staff the show for serving but he can make the food and the club can buy it and sell it.  Can sell food to us for $100 - $150/day.  Last year he did about 50 meals per day.  That comes to about $3/meal, our cost.  We can sell for a markup.  Moved and passed that we go with this option.  Also moved and passed that we buy coffee from the 4H center and sell this as well.

·         Discussed the flyer hanging done by Phil Passopulo in Naturita, Nucla, Norwood, Placerville, Hotchkiss, Paonia, Cedaredge.  Need to compensate Phil for the work.  $200 was moved and passed.  Sue wrote check to Phil for $200.  Gayle delivered check.

·         Dick Frantz is on vacation until the 26th.

·         His office was contacted last week – we have 47 tables sold and 14 remaining to sell.

·         Insurance for the show has been purchased.

·         A couple more volunteers are needed for Saturday and Sunday of the gun show

·         We need to talk to Dick about tables – do we need to borrow any?  Check on Friday of the show

·         Need a donation jar to set on the registration table and salt it with some cash

                Trap Shoot Committee Report

 

·         Trap shoot committee is being renamed to the “special shoot committee”

·         Idea was floated to do a mini “Top Shot” (like the TV show) for the COGC.  Would be on a smaller scale.  Initial ideas:

o   Whomever is on committee and helps set up and design the shoot cannot compete

o   Allow only 50 shooters and charge a $100 entry fee

o   Final winner gets half the entry fees we take

o   Spring may be a good time to do this type of shoot

·         Over winter the committee needs to work on the shoot
