Jim Herin opened the meeting by Welcoming four new members: Sean Forbes, Joe Winker, Lisa and Matthew Yates. Jim asked if there was any „Old Business‟ to be discussed. Victor said that
he would like to go over the proposed „draft‟ changes to the NORVA‟s Constitution & By-Laws.
Since much time was being consumed, Irene suggested that the new executive board get together and go over those changes at a later time. Victor said that he would write up his recommended changes.
Jim then said that he had been President for the pass four years and at the last meeting, Victor Barnett was nominated for President and Bart Holzer for Vice-President. Jim called for a vote on the election of President and Vice-President. Those present, voted unanimous for Victor Barnett as President and Bart Holzer as Vice-President. With no further discussion, Jim turned the meeting over to Victor.
Victor asked if there was any „New Business.‟ Irene asked Victor if he had any changes to the
Appointed Officers for this organization. Victor said that Jim Herin would be the new Range Captain and Rich Irwin the new 3-D Caption. Jim Little, Sr would remain as Target Captain and Paul Vogel as Tournament Captain.
Irene reported that she had not received dues from some of the officers and last year‟s members.
Since our charter with VBA/VFAA/NFAA and the VBA membership dues were due this month, this may caused a delay in re-chartering with those organizations and processing VBA memberships. Irene said that the January‟s Newsletter will be the last Newsletter the ‘2004
members would be receiving. In the February‟s Newsletter will include your NORVA‟s
membership card, the new combination, your ‟05 sticker, and your VBA Official Membership
card and „2005 Schedule Shoot card. Irene mentioned that the VBA Quarterly meeting was this
weekend and there were no agenda items to be voted on. Irene mentioned that she needed the signatures from the President and Tournament Chairman for the VBA 3-D Fall Classic contract that NORVA will be hosting in August, and an up-to-date layout on both ranges as soon as possible. Paul and/or Irene would give their reports as to what transpired at the VBA Quarterly meeting in February.
Richard Irwin reported that some of our 3-D animals were vandalizes recently on two occasions. The animals have been restored to their proper positions, but may have to be replaced later. Victor reminded everyone that we are on Northern Virginia Regional Park Authority property. Irene asked that if anyone finds any misuse of property and/or misconduct of a member(s) or their guest to notify both Victor and her immediately!

MESSAGE FROM THE NORVA’S PRESIDENT
January 6, 2005
TO: NORVA Members,
As I was just elected to the position of President for our club, I thought it would be appropriate to take this opportunity to greet you all.
First, I would like to extend a sincere „Thank You‟ to Jim Herin. He has held the position of
President for 4 years. During his tenure he took every opportunity to make sure that our club did its most to promote archery. It‟s people like Jim that keep the sport of archery alive.
I‟ve been a member of our club for only a little more than 5 years, but in this time I‟ve done what I can to take an active part in club activities. For the last couple of years I‟ve been the Range Captain and have had the opportunity to oversee a lot of maintenance to the range as well as some improvements.
While I don‟t think that there needs to be any major changes to our club, I would like to try to do some things that will get some more participation from our members. We will be setting up some sort of email message system that will help to keep you up-to-date on important happenings within the club. Also, once the days are long enough again, I would like to start having some club shoots on weekday afternoons. These will comprise of some sort of abbreviated field round to get people more familiar with this type of archery. We may also have some afternoon 3D shoots as well. I‟ll be the first to admit that I‟m not the greatest organizer or “thinker upper” of ideas, so if anyone has any suggestions on potential club activities are sure to let me know. And, feel free to contact me anytime about anything NORVA related or just archery in general.
Above all remember that archery is fun, so get out there and shoot it up every chance you get.
Victor M. Barnett
Northern Virginia Archers
