Insurance and Under Age 18:
The response from the insurance agent and carrier regarding those underage 18 and using weapons was that there could be no weapons allowed for those under age 18. If aperson under age 18 used or carried weapons, the insurance for that event would be void. Further theagent said that if we wanted to insure those under 18 with weapons under the HRS insurance policyfinding a carrier that would accept members under age 18 with weapons this would be unlikely. Thedefinition of weapons included for example rifles, anti-tank guns, knives, and bayonets. Air softwould be included as those weapons do fire a projectile.

Don had inquired about the Treasurer position however accordingto the records he has been a member since August 2008 and therefore was not eligible. We do thankDon for his willingness to serve on the HRS board.
