Frank Allen, of Allen Arms, talked about issues with the Greenville Gun Club in the latest newsletter of his. It seems The Greenville Gun Club is about to end up like Grassroots:
Last, I have some disturbing news concerning internal problems in the Greenville Gun Club. When the ballots for annual officer elections were sent out last month, it seems that a number of candidates for club offices were not on it, myself included, having filed for Director of Pistol. When the club president, Mike Harris, inquired as to the situation, he was informed that the candidates had been determined to be "unqualified" for the positions, though they met all the listed qualifications and followed all filing rules. Mike directed that those ballots were improper and should be recalled and replaced. They were not; in fact, the Board of Directors took the unprecedented action of removing Mike from his elected office, in a meeting of which he was not informed, so as to defend himself, for activities "not in the best interest of the gun club". It sounds as if there are elements in the Club management who are determined to prevent any other members from being elected to management positions, and it appears that legal action will result. I'll try to keep you posted as developments or more information becomes available.
