President’s Report (Wayne Sluhan)

Wayne is working on revising & updating our SCA plaques that we award to winners in our 3D tournaments.

In late January a few board members met to discuss our clubs digital footprint. Topics discussed were how we can improve our online presence including website & content, promoting our club socially. Our website menus are being revised and website content being rewritten. Changes will be published once completed.

-St. Louis Boat & Sport Show event February 8-11. Sign up to help staff the shooting booths like before. –Our club should make around $700-dollars for this event.

-Indoor League started January 23, 2018 at The Bow shop on Old hwy 21. Everyone is having a good time shooting this event. If you didn’t make it this year put it on your calendar for next year.

-Range Work Day for February 17, 2018- was pushed back due to weather. Our back-up work day is March 3, 2018. Meet at the archery pavilion at 6:00am.

-Seckman NASP Tournament is February 24, 2018. See Wayne if you can volunteer.

-March 25, 2018 SCA Awards Banquet at Genesis on Telegraph 63125. $25/per person. We need to get a final count. Don’t miss out on this year’s event & attendance prizes. Hope to see everyone there.

Treasurer’s Report (Henry Drane)

Henry mentioned that this time of the year is our clubs lowest period financially. We have bills going out but do not really collect revenue during the winter months due to inactivity. Lastly, thanks to our solid members & our sponsorships our club remains financially strong.

More details to be announced in the coming meetings but the cost will be somewhere around $25 dollars for dinner & drinks. Spouses are welcome. We will have awards and will have attendance prizes.

Need more participation from the membership to assist with setting up and taking down the 3D targets on our Wednesday night fun shoot events and other club sanctioned events.
