was called to order by Pres. Van Drake at 7 pm.
introduced and welcomed the new members of the Board, Gary Wise, Barry Kelly
and Louise Terry. Louise had another
commitment during this time but has been in contact with the board on the
financial report by Gregg Nelson
Gregg sent the financial report out to the Board previously this week.
There were no comments and report was accepted by all.
2. State Shoot evaluation and discussion.
Van asked the Board individually
to comment and express their views on the performance of Ancient Oak as host of
this year’s State Shoot. Board reactions
were generally very positive on the hosting of the shoot. The most common statements from the Board
“Well done!”, “Parking was a problem”, “food was good”, needed
better signage”, needed more to do on Sunday”, “portapotties were
insufficient”, “needed to get shooters out of bad weather sooner”, “great
targets”, “course management (flow though stations) could have been better”, “more
effective weather contingency planning”
Van also asked all the attendees during the state shoot banquet to
evaluate our job and the hosting club by going to our website and completing an
evaluation survey. The survey was
created and ready to use the day after the state shoot but our website managers
did not put the link up.
Van reported that the new FSCA website
managed by ScoringPro is ready to use.
The old site is no longer accessible to members. Typing the prior URL
will now redirect to the new URL that was picked by ScoringPro. Very soon, Van will have control of content
in that new site.
4. Proposal for increasing fees
Van discussed raising our current $.01 per
target fee to .02 or even beyond. There
were spirited views both for and against this proposal. With no short term
resolution forthcoming in this meeting, Van tabled the discussion until the May
5. Ratifying FSCA Bylaw Amendments
Roger sent out an email prior to this Conf
call describing the need to have the entire Board vote to approve the Bylaw
Amendments that have been adopted by the Board over the last ten years. NSCA
rules require all amendments to be reviewed by the NSCA before being adopted.
Unfortunately, we just recently heard about that rule. Brett Moyes and Rollins Brown (FL NSCA
Delegate) have agreed that if we put the current Bylaws with all amendments to
a vote by the full Board (and that the NSCA favorably approves the Bylaws),
that would suffice. All Board members received the current Bylaws the summary
of changes through the years and Minutes of meetings where the changes were
discussed and approved.
10 of the 11
voting members were present and all voted to approve the Bylaws.
At the end of the meeting, on a new subject, the Board discussed
support for the SCTP program in the state of Florida. We agreed to have Dennis Wagner, director of
the SCTP in Florida, invited to join an upcoming FSCA conference call to make a
proposal for what they would like us to sponsor.
