Guest speaker was National Advisor and past president, Bunny Beeson. He spoke regarding new land acquisition for Horry Chapter. It has been agreed by the HCWLA Board of Directors in concert with National, that we will acquire approximately 7.2 acres of surrounding property. Agreed price is $5500 per acre. Bunny explained the 501c3 tax status, in that purchased property will use National’s ID status. National has pledged $20,000 towards the purchase, since all property is owned by National. HCWLA becomes the trustee and manages the properties. If you would like to donate toward the land acquisition fund, you should also know that your donation is tax deductible. Please make your donation by check or money order so you will have a record of your donation for tax purposes. Unfortunately, the Aynor EMT’s scheduled to speak on the new AED and Trauma kit were unable to attend. Jeff Fink spoke a bit about each. The orange bag is an NRA Range Trauma kit designed for gunshot wounds. There are cards contained within the kit explaining how to use. The defibrillator is there in case someone has a heart attack. Again, follow the instruction cards to apply the electrodes. The unit is designed to only shock IF that individual is really experiencing a heart attack. Always call 911. The telephone has been moved next to the front doors next to both kits and the medicine cabinet. Keep in mind that if you are the only folks at the facility, you may also have to open the gate for emergency personnel.  Also announced is that the new Military Monument stones have been placed by our flagpole. The utility trailer has been repainted and has a new bed, the fence installation has been completed and signs rehung. In addition, new signs have been placed on the Trap Tower.
Donations: John Fink donated $500 to use so another Pioneer may attend camp. Claude Dey again donated 1000 rounds of ammo. We also received assorted ammo from Mark Orr, Stu Chan, and Farris Hunt. Also, Donald Reed, donated 7 boxes of high power ammo, Ashley Meyers donated a sleeping bag; Mark Bara, 500 targets for pistol shooting. Wild animal mounts from Jaylene Reiners (turkey); Bonnie Guiton, a bobcat; and Jeff Fink (bear) were also donated.
The 50/50 was won John Fink, who in turn regifted winnings back to the chapter.
