The group had fun shooting clay birds before the meeting at 6 PM and the business meeting started at 7 PM.

Motion by Todd, 2nd by Davies carried to buy State Print of the Year, January Surprise.

Discussed inviting new banquet committee members to attend. So, anyone out there, please consider attending the next meeting.

Dick will order banquet tickets and program covers now.

Discussed that the Highland Hunting preserve would allow us to hold free of charge a youth hunting day on October 23. Any of you out there that have a youth that you would like to break in hunting planted birds on the preserve please get a hold of President Dick Grimm 726-3011 or Mike Todd 728-7718. If you don't have a dog, someone from the chapter will supply one. Just call Dick or Mike now to set it up and come with your youth Saturday morning, October 23 the day of the hunt. Must have had the hunter safety class.

Louisa County PF member Carlos Lagespi (owner of La Reyna's restaurant in Columbus Jct.) has a litter of AKC German Short Hair pups for sale. They were born July 4, 2004. He would like $200 each for them. See Carlos at the restaurant or call 728-8182.

Banquet tickets will be on sale shortly and will be $40 which includes membership in national and county, meal, and magazine. This years banquet will be Feb. 5, 2005 at the Circle of Pride Rodeo Grounds north of Columbus Jct.

Motion by Todd, 2nd by Cutkomp to buy two guns carried to buy two guns for checkerboard raffle. Bennelli Super Sport and a Browning BPS. After the meeting and through phone vote with the members, it was decided that only one gun could be put on the checkerboard, the Super Sport. This gun sells for $1650 by itself and we could not recoup our purchase price if we gave two guns away on the checkerboard. I anticipate this raffle selling out this year so get your tickets early. Only 144 chances will be sold at $20/chance or 3 for $50. If your like me, I really would like to have this gun, but don't want to lay out $1650 for it. I am willing to buy 3 raffle tickets for $50 on it however. You will get information by regular mail about the banquet and ticket purchase on the Super Sport.

The next banquet committee meeting is October 21. We are going to start out at Bill Burroughs' at 6 PM to look at a possible PF project. Bill lives on X17 south of Columbus City just South of 105th St. The business meeting will start at 6:30 PM at the Don Wilson residence 10321 W. Ave. To get to Don's, go south of Columbus City on X17 and turn west on 105 th st. W. Ave. is the next four corner intersection. Turn south on W. ave. In case you get lost, call Don at 319-728-2081.

Restrooms: New and very adequate. Heat: Well heated. The reason for changing locations is we have run out of room at the Legion.

It was decided to host a trap shoot again this year as a fund raiser at the Louisa County Gun Club. Ken Purdy was to check on conflicts with duck and goose seasons and check with Bob Hamann for availability. Ken's report: After checking with DNR Larry Desner and Bill Ohde the best date to have the shoot was Sept. 20, 2003. Bob Hamann was called to put it on his schedule at the gun club.

Present: Ken Purdy, Mike Todd, Ron Cutkomp, Dick Grimm, Brian Mc Cleary, Steve Sents,Jackie Johnson, Greg Wagner

Meeting called to order by Pres. Mc Cleary. Minutes from previous meeting read and approved.
Treasurer's Report by Steve Sents: The 2000 annual PF banquet netted $7699 on on a gross of $19000. Best gross and net ever. There were 176 people in attendance at the Feb. 5, 2000 banquet. Largest ever. 134 memberships were sold this year.

Discussion: Meal was excellent and well received. Motion by Dick Grimm, 2nd Ken Purdy carried to hold next years banquet at the American Legion in Columbus Junction on Sat., Feb 3., 2001. The CJ diner was approved as the caterer again.

Mutually agreed to continue Sponsor Gun - Browning Gold to be drawn for every 10 sponsors. A sponsor is anyone who contributes $250 to LC PF. The sponsor gets a chance on the gun, a membership and 2 banquet meals.

Discussion: Coat raffle run by Jim Wooley went well. Gasoline raffle broke even but hard to tell since a lot of tickets were given away in mugs, instead of sold. Checkerboard went well. Motion carried to have checkerboard raffle, penny raffle, and gasoline raffle with TV again. An in house gun raffle was discussed but no action.

Secretary to send thank you letter to IBP for donating sponsor gun back to raffle, thank you letter to C.J. Diner and La Reyna's for helping cook meat when our cooker didn't fire up correctly. This was above the call of duty for both groups.

Motion by Bryan Mc Cleary and 2nd by Dick Grimm carried to allow sponsorship to Greg Wagner for hosting a two day pheasant. The hunt was auctioned off at a PF chapter in Illinois. That chapter gave our chapter $600 for the hunt and then raffled it off. Greg does the work and we get $600 less motel room for the hunter's. The hunt is to be held next pheasant season.

Discussion whether there should be a distinction between merchandise given for sponsorship and cash. No action was taken. Tabled.

Motion by Ken Purdy, 2nd by Greg Wagner carried for our chapter to offer to buy back any gun we offer at the banquet for 80% of what we paid for it. The thought was that cash may be more appealing to some people.

Discussion: Need to decide what to do with Old Rivals I, II, III with same serial numbers that our chapter won. Bring up next time.

Motion carried to arrange a chapter outing to go to Dahl's shooting supply in Fairfield to look at guns for next years banquet. The idea was to arrange a time when he is not normally open.
