Under new business Roman said a vote to accept the TSRA as an option to join HAWKS would NOT eliminate the NRA as a requirement for membership. Some discussion followed, Wayne moved we reject the TSRA option, seconded by Paul, motion carried.
Roman made a plea for someone to step up and volunteer to run for the position of Secretary. He, also, asked us to consider becoming a member of Texas Law Shield.
A reminder that the prayer page has been eliminated from the Website and that Mike was announcing those who needed prayer, meeting by meeting.
Wayne was asked if we had plans to revive the “kid shoot”, he said he had all the paper work on it but no one has offered to take it and to date no effort was made to revive it.
The meeting was adjourned.

Addendum #1 A proposal was offered to the members that the position of Past President/Vice Chairman be added, with voting privileges, and requiring a by-law change. This proposal was rejected.
Addendum #2 Additional options discussed were to remove the Information Officer, add Past President/Vice Chairman Officer and move Information Officer duties under the Vice President since there is little activity for this position. No action taken.
