December President’s Message

We are in the middle of a great Holiday Season and soon it will be the beginning of 2018.

The work in the clubhouse is about complete, which includes the indoor range ceiling being insulated, the clubhouse ceiling being insulated, and two walls framed out and insulated to allow the clubhouse more use in the winter and have bathrooms with running water. One of our club members, John Fairchild of Fairchild Construction, has donated time, expertise, and materials to complete this project.

The indoor .22 rimfire league shoots have begun with events every Thursday night. Lots of fun!!

The Shotgun 5 Stand indoor shooting is off to a great start. With the new Target Manager System, members who have been oriented can shoot anytime during the week. Saturdays are open to the public from 10 am until all shooters are finished.

As another reminder, it is also that time of year to renew your club membership. Please go online to Cedar Hills Gun Club, then click on the Renew Membership 2018 link and pay online.

For those who wish not to use a credit card, contact our Club secretary, Chris Jenneiahn, at (208) 681-3584 and she will arrange with you to pay for your membership dues. Remember, your gate card will not be activated after December 31, 2017 until your dues are paid.

I hope and wish all a Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays.

Thank you,
Jed Taylor, President

December 6, 2017

Board members present: Jed Taylor, Terry Hansen, James Martin, Mike Curnutt, Stuart McKim, Larry Taylor, Ron Weaver, Bill Kelleher, David Davids, Jake Black, and Chris Jenneiahn

The meeting was opened at 7 PM by president Jed Taylor.

Treasurer’s Report: James reported that we have $19,427 in our checking account and $33,710.97 in our savings account.

Exciting news was given to our membership concerning the 5 Stand event. This Thursday evening will be the first time night time shooting will be tried. 2 large banks of lights, operated by generators, will hopefully aid in visibility to shoot this event at night. This dry run will determine whether this is a feasible activity or not. If it is, a league is a probability. The regular Saturday shooting, from 10 AM to about 2 PM will continue.

Jed told the members present that the insulation of the clubhouse, done by John Fairchild, will be completed soon. The clubhouse, pistol range and crawl space is being insulated so the water will not freeze in the bathrooms and we will have use of the clubhouse in winter.

The security cameras are being installed. Four have already been put in place and the other four will be installed by the end of this week.

The NRA grant application has been submitted and we will be notified, possibly by the end of January, as to whether we have been selected to receive or not receive the grant we requested.

The service gate had a glitch this week and would not close. A repair person is coming to assess the problem and repair it if needed.

A comment was made about the necessity of railings for the steps to the 5 Stand building. Jed will contact Butch DeForest about making and installing railings.

The meeting was adjourned at 7:35.

Respectfully submitted

Chris Jenneiahn, secretary
