The 2/16/2016 teleconference meeting of the Wisconsin Trapshooting Association Board of Directors was called to order at 6:40 P.M. by President Bill Simonar. Directors present were 1st Vice President Glenn Hamerly, 2nd Vice President Jerry Farnsworth, N/W: Bruce Stiteley, N/E Pat Schuette, S/W: Dan Horkan, S/E: Jerry Kaszynski, Phil Kubow, ATA Delegate Kevin Doerring, 1st Alt. Delegate Dwight Paulin, Treasurer Jim Kroeplien and Secretary Theresa Howland. Absent for teleconference meeting was 2nd Alt. Delegate Fritz Thistle.

Meeting started at 6:40


Fall Shoot: Bill started the meeting with questions about the Fall Shoot. There was talk that it should be moved because of the 4 registered shoots on the same weekend. The date was to be changed from September 9-11th to September 16-18th. If we did that weekend it would be the same as Gateway’s money shoot.

Bruce said that he agreed that it should be switched. The Gateway shoot is not a registered shoot but very well known. But he felt we should really not compete with the other clubs registered shoots.

Dan made a motion to have the Fall Shoot on September 16-18th, it was seconded by Phil. Bill called it to a vote. It was unanimous for the dates.

Zone Re-elections: Bill asked which Directors will be up for re-election this year and if they plan on running again.

N/E Zone Bill is up for re-election, he said he will not be running.

S/E Zone Phil is up for re-election, he said he will be running again.

S/W Zone Jerry F. is up for re-election, he said he will be running again.

N/W Zone Bruce is up for re-election, he said he will not be running.

SCTP Contract: Bill asked if it would be fine if he signed the 5 year contract he received from the SCTP. He was asked if he would be able to read it or send it so they could know what the contract said. Bill said it was only 14 steps and he read it to the Directors. There were a few questions and changes suggested by the Directors. Bill said he would contact the SCTP and get the changes made and bring the new contract to the face to face meeting.

Kevin: Kevin brought up that LaVern Lehmann would like to offer a free WTA lifetime membership for a Junior or Sub Junior from the State Shoot. He would like to do this every year until he is not able to do so.

The SCTP Grand Shoot has been moved from the Grand American to the Cardinal Center this year. Jerry did go to the SCTP meeting at the Mead and he asked that since the SCTP was going to change their venue this year would they consider changing their date so it would be different from the Wisconsin State Shoot. They said they would not be changing their date.

Kevin said there were some questions on the changes made for the qualifications for the Wisconsin State Shoot. Bill said we would be revisiting that at the face to face meeting in March.

Jim: Jim brought up that he has not received any quotes from any accountant firms. Has anyone sent requests out? There were none yet but a few Directors said they were going to ask around.

He asked Bill about a check he got from him and what it would be for. Bill said it was for camping. Bill also mentioned that there are only 17 camping spots left for the State Shoot and a few spots open in vendor row. Also he could put some in the parking lot yet.

Pat: Pat said that he bowls with a man from Wagner Trailers. He asked if they would be interested in giving a coupon for a free night at the Homegrounds with their camper sales. He said it would be a good idea and he would be interested. He asked how many he should give and how will we label them so they know where they are coming from. Bill told him that Denny is working on that and he would get them to him.

Motion to adjourn the meeting by Jerry K. seconded by Kevin. Meeting was adjourned at 7:20 PM.

Next meeting: The next meeting will be a face to face on March 5, 2016 at 9:00 AM. It will be held at Lake Sherwood Lodge.
