PERSONS RUNNING FOR THE BOARD
I was born and raised in Long Beach, California. I moved to Prescott in
June of 2006 to be near my 3 children and their families. In California, I
was President of a family major appliance & TV business for 30 years until
it was sold it to a small chain. Then, I started a printing and bindery
company in 1994 with a partner and turned it over to her in 2006. I have
been on many boards of directors relating to business and community
My wife and I moved out to Prescott, AZ in June of 2009 from Wethersfield,
Connecticut. I retired from a career in the Printing industry where I was president
of a company that sold and serviced large sheet fed printing presses as well as
binding and finishing equipment throughout the southern New England states.
Prior to that experience I was a high school technology teacher in a
comprehensive high school in Windsor, CT.
I was born in El Reno, Oklahoma in 1942. My father was career U.S. Navy so my early years were spent at various naval bases where my father was stationed. In 1960, I graduated from high school, joined the U.S. Navy, married by high school sweetheart and started a family.
I am introducing myself to the Prescott Action shooters as a candidate for the Board of Directors. I have been a member since the summer of 2011. My previous background in pistol shooting is none. Firearm activities have centered around hunting big game and game birds. The membership of this club has been very helpful in my learning the ins and outs of shooting. The sport is difficult for old timers to learn but everyone needs a challenge. Recently I volunteered to be a Match Director for Thursday paper shooting. Now I have the time and interest to help the club in any way I can.
GED MCMAHON I been a club member over 10 years; was secretary for 7 and was appointed to the board this year to fill Mark Marley’s vacancy. I have been a member of the NACZ committee for several years; have scored steel challenge for over a year. This year I worked with Ron Younger and John Kim, Kolby Hunter and Jacob Hetherington to try to get more families and kids into the shooting sport. I try to assist the club in any way I can and enjoy being an active part of the club.
Range Officer Class: Our club will be hosting an NROI class on April 26 and 27. This course will allow you to become a qualified USPSA Range Officer. You will learn the USPSA rules from a national instructor who will conduct the class. The 26th will be a full day in the classroom. The 27th will be a half day at the range doing actual field practice. Learning the rules will make you a better RO and improve your own shooting. This is a rare opportunity, as these classes are very difficult to obtain, especially for a small, somewhat remote club like ours. Ideally, we need 20 students to keep the costs down. With 20, the cost per student is $40, which includes all the instruction materials. This is time and money well spent. Also, if we have enough RO’s from our own club for our NAZC match, we save money, which means more profit for our club. When we don’t have enough ROs and have to use out of town RO’s, we pay them extra (which is typically one extra hotel night stay) to offset their additional expenses. Let me know if you are willing and able to attend the class. More details will be forthcoming. But, I need to know how many I can count on to attend. Thank you Ron Younger
NAZC Stages: We are currently designing stages for the NAZC match. IF you have a stage you would like our committee to consider, please email Ron or Geoff with your ideas and a sketch. Ron Younger Geoff Ferrell
