Clarification on Youth Shoot ammo.  USRA procured ammo last year for a shoot.  We will use it for August youth shoot in Durand.  At the March 2016 meeting the group decided to donate $300 (or $300 in ammo) to Richmond Hunt Club for their youth shoot.  Note: NRA grant application due in November.

Reviewed draft course of fire for USRA Defensive Handgun II course. Debated several specific COF items including addressing any potential safety scenarios, types of drills and how to tie everything we learned that day into the “Grand Finale”

New Business:

Buffalo Range Shooting Park, Ottawa—someone working on shoot dates?  Could be added to current shoot schedule

Discussed individuals including a donation in cards for Guy or passing the hat (like we did for Bruce S) at the instructor shoot.  Possible for USRA to donate meals for Guy and his family?  Doug F going to check with local contact
