President’s Report (Wayne Sluhan)

No report

Vice-President’s Report (Mike Gapsch)

Wayne is doing daily therapy and making progress. No meeting in November due to peak rut hunting season. December meeting will be on December 6th and also the club christmas party.  Encourage everyone to submit ideas for the canned food drive. Gun Raffle winner was Charles Ruggeri (sp). Almost 600 tickets were sold. Motion to send $50 to Gateway Armory to cover costs. Motion was passed by majority. Looking for ideas for another raffle for 2019–guns seem to be the most popular and best ticket seller. Club hunt is 10-11-18 through 10-14-18. 25 paid with 3 pending. 17 sponsorship renewals–please get out and support these business. Harvest contest continues.

Secretary Report (Malcolm Grundy)

Share your pics & stories in the woods on our club Facebook site: South County Archers
St. Louis. If you are not already on there go to the site and send me a request to join.
Also, please invite other to like and join our site as well. Secondly, you can also email
your harvest photos to pics@southcountyarchers.com so we can upload to a gallery site
that we are putting together. Be on the lookout for updates to our website and social
media pages. Lastly, if you know someone who you feel would be a good fit for our
club please invite them to attend our functions and help sponsor them to become
active members. Also, if anyone would like to purchase SCA apparel we have hats,
polo shirts & T-shirts available for purchase. See Jon for details & to check available

Treasurer’s Report (Henry Drane)

The club is very sound on the target fund. Also in good position on the club side. Genesis Bow and gun raffle was once again very successful, as well as solid sponsorships.

We have a need for some new inserts for 3D targets. We have unused credit with Rinehart. Motion to allocate $3500 to purchase necessary targets and inserts. Motion approved by majority.

New Business/Old Business


Henry Drane suggested first time shooters for club shoots get member pricing if they
provide us with personal info (email/phone #) to be added to contact lists.  Ken  Winkelman suggested we need to get an assement of gravel/rock for the range lanes. Tony Taylor suggested we get details together on spraying honeysuckle at the range before the spring green up.


The only contested officer position was membership secretary, won by Jon Adams (13)
over Mary Taylor (6).  All other officers approved by majority. Thanks to everyone who
attended and helped with the Fish Fry at the last fun shoot. We had a great turnout.
