February 2018 Meeting Minutes

The monthly meeting of the Kennebunk Fish and Game Club was held on February 1st, 2018. President George Cressey called the meeting to order at 6:00 at the club’s office on 85 Branch Road, West Kennebunk, Maine.

Officers present included President George Cressey, Vice President Michael Jordan, Secretary Todd Cesca.

Minutes: There was a motion made to have the minutes accepted and the motion passed.

Treasurer Report:  Report was read and accepted

Old Business: All range safety officers are scheduled to be re-certified and prospective officers have been informed of the upcoming class.

A constructive conversation was had between President George Cressey, Vice President Mike Jordan and Sr. RSO Jim Rooney and our new abutting neighbor in regard to the placement of new home construction for a private residence adjacent to the 200-yard rife range.

Club leadership also met with NRA consultant Skip Lucarelli to evaluate the club facility and discuss implementing additional safe guards (both physical and in policy). Skip was very pleased with the progress that had been made since his last meeting one year ago and shared some valuable insights on how we might work on new endeavors in the near future.   

New Business: Several important dates and announcements were made including the ETA for REWEWAL APPLICATIONS.

I have had several communications from the membership regarding the annual renewal package. My apologies for the miscommunication, annual renewal packages have NOT BEEN SENT.

The delay was due to the need to rewrite several new by-laws with new policies regarding the role of the newly created Superintendents, and also the structure of the newly created dues policy.

THANK YOU for your patience, they will be mailed later this week.
