The DSRPC Bylaws Committee has proposed changes to the club’s bylaws.
If you have any questions concerning the changes, come to the next General Membership Meeting.
… 4. A member terminated from the club will forfeit all rights, privileges, benefits of membership and any associated fees or dues that have been paid.
- A terminated member is prohibited from entering the club property for any reason unless approved by the Executive Board in advance.
… ARTICLE IX Number (16) Section (b) (6) with a new heading titled Reinstatement After ‘Termination’.
[ NEW LANGUAGE]:
- A person whose termination anniversary was 2 years or longer 3 years may submit a new application for membership and be reviewed by the E-Board, with these rules.
- Will be on probation for one year
- May never serve on the E-Board
- Can never be an employee at DSRPC
- Will be terminated if they break any DSRPC rules and can never be a member of DSRPC again.
Reason/Rationale for this new language: The DSRPC Bylaws Objective effectively states:
- The primary objective of this organization shall be to encourage the expansion of organized marksmanship for developing knowledge of safe handling and proper care of a firearm.
- DSRPC acknowledges it has a civic responsibility to the government groups, agencies and departments and will allow them range time as it becomes available.
- It shall also be our objective to:
- Establish a youth program known as the Desert Sportsman’s Youth Rifle and Pistol Club (DSYRPC) and to provide supervision guidance and encouragement.
- Promote the development of honesty, good fellowship, self-reliance, self-discipline, and team spirit.
- Promote hunter safety, hunting as a shooting sport, foster the propagation, growth, conservation, and wise use of our renewable wildlife resources, encourage the protection, and restoration of waters, wildlife, forest and fields.
