6 pallets of target material, frame material, a sprayer, a pull behind, and rock were purchased thanks to the grant. A discussion was had about placing foam under the targets in the bottoms in an attempt to
improve target conditions in the event of water coming up.

Last year, funds were allocated from The Boat Show to the Club Hunt for those who assisted in The Boat Show weekend – The year prior was for parking at the Boat Show – A motion to vote on this years allocation was held, we will maintain last years allocation.
