Our M1s are with a guy in Pocahontas that we are trying to contact. William will contact David Joyner and ask about the guns. Gary Jobe has the scopes and the 22s. Al Alberius should know the name of the other gentleman with the M1s and he will be contacted.


New Business – discuss the winter meeting date. We could get by with a phone meeting for our next meeting. Mike Nevins made recommendation that the president set the next meeting by phone, seconded by David Mack. We will research setting up annual meeting in January. Ken Fairless thinks a letter to the state legislature stating our opinion on the gun carry law would be appropriate. He said he could get David Meeks to take it to the legislature. Mike Nevins will work on a letter and a notice to send out to the club for membership opinion. Mark Wassner recommended that we get a letter and send it out for comment.
