Last Chance for Advance Nominations
Allow me to bring you up to date with named candidates for Club Officer Positions. The absentee ballots must go to the printer soon so if you have an interest in a position on the Board, please contact me and the Club Secretary within the next week. Nominations can still be taken from the floor. Remember that if you can’t attend the annual meeting, you may request an absentee ballot from the Secretary.
President – Eric Kennard (incumbent) & Dan Yelverton
Vice President – Jim Flynn
Secretary – Jim Beachboard
Treasurer – Jim Watson
Chief Instructor – Tom Kehoe
Executive Officer – Keith Kessler
Director of Range Development – Tom Monaghan
Youth Director – Kevin McSparron
Rifle Director – Francois LeBreton
Public Information Officer – Duane Charter & Tom Long
Some notes on all of this. During the course of this year, the Board took a que from our Parliamentarian, Jim Isaacson. Jim suggested that we were all over loaded and perhaps we should vote in some new positions. Last summer the Board voted to add a Youth Director and a Public Information Officer. The SOP was passed for the Youth Director and Kevin McSparron was elected for the position. The Public Information Officer SOP has not been approved yet. If it is then the PIO will be on the ballot.
When Tom Zamparello resigned from the Executive Officer job, the Board decided that we really needed two people to fill this position. The Board elected Keith Kessler for Executive Officer. The new position of Director of Range Development was created and Tom Monaghan was elected into the position. All of these positions will need to be confirmed by the membership at the annual meeting.
I also want to announce the retirement of our Club Secretary, Jim Beachboard. He announced at the last Board meeting that he would be moving out of state Mid-Year. Jim has served in this position with great distinction. We all need to thank him for his service. So we will be looking for a new Secretary. This position does get a stipend for services rendered. I think if we have a member interested in the position, that we may start them working with Jim at the beginning of the year.
It is important that you take an interest in your Club and the Officer positions. The future of your Club is in your hands.
Eric Kennard, President
PMRPC needs contractors in several trades
The Port Malabar Rifle and Pistol Club is building a contact list of contractors. We have several projects coming up and would like to consider contractors in our club member family along with bids from contractors in our local community. To allow us to solicit bids from our club member family we would like contractors in our club to email their contact info with their skills or business area to email@example.com. We will compile the list separated by category so we may contact the club member businesses as the need arises.
We are looking for:
-- a concrete contractor

-- site development contractor ( excavating)
-- structual steel contractor (metal roofing)
-- a pressure washer that does roofs
-- a block mason
Thanks in advance
