Annual Meeting & Election 2018 Minutes

Posted by Nellie Blue on May 26, 2017 at 8:34 PM

Howdy Folks,

The Up the Creek Gang had its annual meeting this afternoon after today's match.

Flash gave a Treasurer's report which indicated the club is in good financial shape, with a slightly higher amount of money that has come in than has gone out.

We voted to continue to allow Legally Armed America to use our range to take videos, which appear on the Legally Armed America cable TV show (KVHP Fox 29 in Lake Charles, Sunday morning at 9:00am) as well as on the internet.  The club gets some publicity on the show.  Hellbender volunteered to  send Paul Glasco some videos he has taken during our shoots and ask that one be shown from time to time on the show also.  For those who are not aware of what Legally Armed America is, here is a link to their website:  https://legallyarmedamerica.com.

No one was in favor of getting another old piano (for free) for the saloon stage.

All those nominated to hold Office and Board position were approved unanimously.  Here are the election results:

President - Possum Skinner
Vice President - Rambling Grey
Treasurer - Flash
Secretary - Hellbender

Board Members:
Navasota Kid - re-elected to serve a 2nd year
Graybow Slim - newly elected
Texas Gator - newly elected
Hellbender - newly elected
Staybolt Bill - newly elected


Secretary, Up the Creek Gang

Annual Meeting & Election 2017 Minutes

Posted by Nellie Blue on June 17, 2017 at 10:25 AM

Howdy Folks,

Nineteen Up the Club Gang Members attended today's Annual Meeting which was held following this morning's shoot. Here are the minutes of the meeting:

1. Elections were held and the following members were elected:
President - Possum Skinner
Vice President - Rambling Grey
Treasurer - Flash
Secretary - Hellbender
Board Members:
  Choctaw Slim
  Navasota Kid
  Nellie Blue
  Stonewall Willie

2. The idea of not having Bayou Blast in 2018 was brought up and discussed. The  majority of those voting voted not to have Bayou Blast in 2018 so there will be no Bayou Blast in 2018.

3. The idea of our club having the State Black Powder Championship and the State Wild Bunch Championship together the same weekend, along with a long range match, was discussed.   This concept most likely will be voted on during a special meeting to be held later this year (see item # 4 below). If so, advance notice will go out.

4. Two issues were discussed that would require changes to the By-Laws if enacted.  One dealt with dues increase and the other with preventing persons from joining just to use our range with no intention of participating in club activities.  The Board will meet to discuss these two issues and should By-Law changes be proposed as a result of their meeting, a special meeting of the membership will be called to vote on the Board's  proposed By-Law changes [such notice will go out by email no more than 60 days and no more than 10 days prior to the special meeting, as stipulated in the By-Laws]. 

5. Staybolt Bill volunteered to fix the leaking sink in the women's restroom.

Five (5) Board Members:

Board Members have voting rights to determine the direction of the club and decide how the club's funds are spent.

Grayboy Slim
Nellie Blue
Choctaw Slim
Stonewall Willie


Officers carry out the day-to-day responsibilities of the club.

President: Possum Skinner
Vice President: James Moore
Treasurer: Flash
Secretary: Hellbender


Navasota Kid requested that a new Territorial Governor be selected so the club voted to have Flash take over this position.  Thank you to Navasota for all the years he has represented the club!

We will be holding Bayou Blast in 2017 and the date will be March 10-12, 2017.

James Moore will be holding a range work day, Wednesday, June 15, 2016 for anyone who can help.  They will be cleaning out the south storage building and basic range clean up.  They will start at 8 am and plan to be done by noon.

The outgoing board approved a 20'x36' shed to be built south of the current  shed.  This will save the club by not having to rent a tent each year.

We have honey bees in the shed wall again.  If anyone knows of someone that would be willing to remove them, please let us know.
