Discussed who would be the Committee Chairperson for 2022. It was determined that Critter will continue as Committee Chairperson for 2022. It was noted that Fred has sent former secretary Laura Foote an email requesting all Club property be returned. Items include but not limited to; laptop computer, printer, two years’ worth of meeting minutes, Attendance pool money ($200.00 +/-) and the pool bucket. There has been no response as yet. It was determined that the next step will be for Fred to send a Registered Letter. If that doesn’t work we will then go to Mike Giangreco for legal action. Each Committee Chair is requested to provide a list of Capital Items that need to be addressed for 2022. This list is to be provided at the next monthly meeting. It was noted that the side door to the Clubhouse, for whatever reason has been found open on more than one occasion. With the brutal weather we have used a lot of fuel trying to keep up with the cold air coming in the open door. It is hoped that these events are accidental and not intentional. Discussed the possibility of reinstalling the driveway gate. The gate was removed for fire engine access to the site. Discussed the option of utilizing a key fob entry system for each member to gain access to the club house and the Trap Lounge. This would allow that any single individual could have their key fob deactivated and denied entry. Discussed the idea of security cameras. One of the systems discussed was a Scout camera system. Fred suggested getting four (4) cameras installed, two at the club house and two at the trap lounge with a hub for recording. A combo deadbolt lock was also discussed for the side door at the clubhouse as well as two door sensors. It was determined that we can have this system installed for approximately $1,000.00. There was a motion by Bob Tucker and 2nd by Jim Mayers to purchase the Scout System installed for the noted $1,000.00. All approved.
With no further business to discuss the meeting was adjourned at 9:15. Respectfully submitted,
