President’s Reports: Greg P. outlined the letter from NSCA revoking the MSC’s charter and indicated that he had written the NSCA requesting four things.  He had not yet heard back from the NSCA.  Greg indicated that he had heard the NSCA sent Mike Haas a letter removing him as National Delegate and heard from Haas that he was no longer on the MSC Board.  Randy Voss forwarded an email copy of the NSCA letter to Haas.  Greg recapped the NSCA National Delegate election process/timing for Mike Haas’ Delegate seat.  In light of the communications and NSCA delegate election, all seemed to be in agreement that Mike Haas is no longer on the MSC Board.  Greg confirmed the receipt of Shooters’ late fee check.  Greg indicated that he had heard from Mark at MGC that the Beretta semi-automatic raffle guns were in, but Mark had not responded to Greg’s inquiry about picking up the guns/payment.  Bob Steffen indicated the MGC had sold the guns.  Greg indicated he held off on surveying members about bundling state shoots in light of the NSCA’s action.

Vice President’s Report:  None.

Delegate Reports: None

Financial Report: Dick indicated there was no change from the January 23, 2017 report in the amount of $20,217.02.

Raffle Committee: The 692 was at the MGC.  Nate was going to look into obtaining the gun for display at his upcoming shoot.  

New Business:

New Business – Non Agenda items for discussion only:  A round table discussion was held surrounding 2017 fundraising and support for state shoots.  Many expressed the MSC is in flux/limbo in light of the NSCA pulling the charter and not providing a clear path to regaining the charter.  The consensus was to sell all the raffle tickets for the 692, but hold off on purchasing any additional guns for the raffle.  The consensus was also to support the state shoots in a similar manner as in prior years.  

A round table was held regarding everyone’s view of the MSC moving forward.  Several people indicated that they wanted the MSC to regain its charter, but NSCA guidance was needed.  At one point, Gregg L. asked Greg P. to resign as President.  That invitation was declined.  

A motion was made and seconded to adjourn the meeting.  The motion passed unanimously.  The meeting was adjourned at 8:10 p.m.
