WGC September News Update

Range Open Saturday; Closed Tuesday and Wednesday

The barrier structure is finished so the gun range will be open Saturday, Sunday, and Monday but then closed on Tuesday and Wednesday to finish painting. The pistol area is not yet completely reinstalled so do not shoot at or in front to the steel plate racks. As you can see in the above photo, the barrier looks great but the recent storm made it difficult to finish the project this week.

Agenda for October Annual Meeting and Special Meeting

Wednesday, October 6, 2021, at 8 PM

Special Meeting: Bylaw Revision
At the Sept 1st meeting, the Board voted to hold a Special Meeting to be held concurrently with the Annual Meeting. The purpose of this special meeting is to vote on whether to revise the Bylaws Article Section XIV. Indemnification. The Club’s attorney recently recommended these additional Bylaw changes after reviewing the Club’s Articles of Incorporation. The proposed wording change is included in the September meeting notes–see below for link and login information.

2022 Club Improvements and Repairs

The Board plans to propose a vote to approve funds for range improvements to be worked on through 2022, which may include:

  • Replace the rifle and pistol range roof: $20,000
  • Install replacement roll-up window in the pistol and rifle huts: $5,000
  • New security camera system: $5,000
  • Improve range berm using extra tires onsite: $5,000

Annual Club Election
Members may nominate themselves and all nominees for each position should confirm their intention to run for a position to the Secretary at least two weeks prior to the annual meeting (reply to this email or email info@westwoodgunclub.com). Members not confirming their intention to run in advance can still announce as “nominations from the floor” at the Annual Meeting. Regular and life members in good standing with at least one full year of membership beyond the probationary period are eligible. All terms begin serving on January 1, 2022, and elected officers and directors are expected to attend the Board and General Meetings typically held in person on the first Wed. of the month starting at 7 pm. Voting on October 6th must be made in person–there is NO mail-in or absentee ballot provision. Currently there are seven positions for which members can nominate themselves:

Officers (1-year term)
Vice President
Directors (3-year term)
Director (2022-2024)
Director (2022-2024)
