New Business:

Our club was been vandalized.  Investigation is ongoing.  Police report filed. List of items removed provided to Police. This is very costly to the members of the club.  In order to keep membership dues affordable we must help and provide suggestions/recommendations/comments for the future security and protection of our assets at the club.  If you have a suggestion/recommendation or comment please provide as much information on the detail as possible and costs associated with the action.  If you have a recommended solution please volunteer to follow up on it.

     The Club will be having Rim Fire shoot 1st Saturday of every month  from 0800 till finish on the 50 yard rifle range. Cost is $10.00 per person with 2 classes: Open sights and scope. Contact is Alan Derrick (423-507-7710) for more  information.

•  Club purchased new skeet machines at cost of $6600 and an additional $800 for skids.  This was approved by membership.

•  Lake survey still in progress with an accredited organization.      


     Chilhowee Club Banquet will be January 16, 2018 (Third Tuesday in January) at 1900. Need volunteer to establish location. Club approved spending $250.00 for the Banquet.

     The Club will be having Rim Fire shoot 1st Saturday of every month from 0800 till finish on the 50 yard rifle range. Cost is $10.00 per person with 2 classes: Open sights and scope. Contact is Alan Derrick (423-507-7710) for more information.

•  Club renewal forms can be printed from the Chilhowee website or obtained from Russell at a meeting.  Even if you meet the fee exemption criteria you must still fill out a renewal form.    
•  Two new members were approved Mike Matheny and Paul Trandel.    

NOTE:  The secretary has had several inquiries about attendance and work days.   Many folks are not getting their newsletter.  For the ones that have spoken with the secretary about these issues please be patient and she will get to your concerns as promptly as she can.  What you can do to help speed up the process is make sure your newsletter is not going into your SPAM, trash, or some other place that you don’t check.  Also you will have to make sure you have “cookies” updated to receive some email depending on your computer securities.  As for the hard copies of the newsletter the updated address will be put in the database and you should begin to receive the newsletter.  Again, be patient because this may take a few weeks
