Jim Cunningham reported that the grounds committee reviewed camera footage and gate records to investigate the intentional use of shotguns to destroy the target stands in the pistol pits. The investigation determined that member A604 -25269, Matthew Titter, was responsible. Such behavior is in violation of Club by-laws, range rules, and posted signage.

Secretary Lingousky will send a letter to the expelled member as per Club by-laws.
