NMSSA Board Meeting Phone Conference Minutes; May 4, 2020

The Reason for the conference was to discuss the registered shoots.

Attendees: John Moen - President

                    Charlie Gates - Vice President

                    Brad Thompson - Chief Referee

                    Ron Shoemake - Board Member

                    Brock Hammond - Board Member

                    Marty Tressell - Sec of Roswell Club

Due to current restrictions, the consensus was that Changes had to be made to the schedule and in the way shoot are conducted.

Brad researched the need for new shoot numbers, if we had to reschedule shoot dates and what had to happen to report shoot results with a I-Shoot format. As it turns out, Shoot Number will stay valid no matter what date we shoot the event, and result from each club would be reported to the home club and they would report results to NSSA.

John suggested that our I-Shoots be for honors only, at a cost of $28 per 100 targets. That was seconded.

The following Shoot will be I-Shoots:

  HOST CLUB            DATES          NAMES

MVSS                    May 30-31      MVSS OPEN

High Desert          June 13-14     RED or GREEN OPEN

Roswell                June 27-28      ALIAN CITY OPEN

MVSS                    July 11-12       FIRECRACKER OPEN

The following shoots will be normal shoots if conditions allow, if not we should be up to speed with I-Shoots. Some Dates have been changed:

  HOST CLUB              DATES                   NAME

Roswell                      July 31-Aug 3       Legends

High Desert              Aug 21-23             Thunderbird
