Karl Eschbach noted there are numerous trees throughout the 3D course that have blown over and will need to be removed prior to the 3D season. Karl noted that it will probably require more than one day to remove all of the fallen trees. Karl also noted that one 3D target was left out over the winter.
TRAP (Officer Fred Guyette) Fred was not in attendance. It was noted that the skeet high house is in need of repairs. There are holes in the roof and door area. The upper trap house is in need of electrical work, also the trap machines are in need of service. It was also noted that the water line from the clubhouse to the trap lounge has frozen on more than one occasion. This problem will need to be addressed and corrected. Karl noted that he will provide a cost estimate to provide ductless heat/AC for the Trap Lounge.
INDOOR RANGE (Officer Tom Blackman) Tom not in attendance. It was noted that we still need to find someone to reclaim the lead from the old backstop rubber and remove.
GROUNDS / BUILDINGS (Officer Ron Walter) Ron noted that the clubhouse basement needs to be cleaned out. Also the ditch from the trap house needs to be finished.

The club entrance sign needs to be cleaned and repainted. It was suggested that whoever made the sign may be able to renew the sign. The rifle range needs to be policed. There is a lot of brass over the area. This will be a Spring Work Day project. Need to make a sign to notify shooters to police their own brass.
