              ~ SCOTT EDICK ~

POSITION: Current Vice President

MEMBER SINCE: 2009

DISCIPLINES: Sporting Clays, 5-Stand, Pistol & Rifle

ACTIVITIES: I have been on the Board of Directors for two years, and currently hold the position of  Vice President. I continue to volunteer for shooting events, such as the Spring Deuce and the NYS Sporting Clays Championship. I am heavily involved in club maintenance activities including the mowing of the Rifle / Pistol Bays last Fall and road maintenance and snow removal. This year has been unique due to COVID,  but we have been able to keep the club operational and open for the members. I have 20+ years of IT and Operation Management experience, in which I have worked with both small and large companies. Aside from my professional career, I have experience operating and maintaining equipment, and general construction.  I am usually at the Club every Wednesday evening and encourage members with questions / ideas to stop by and discuss.

PRESENT & FUTURE INITIATIVES: While spending this year has largely been put on hold due to COVID, I have been working with the Sporting Clays committee on a plan for course improvements. Moving forward I would like to get an updated “5 year” plan for the club.  This would include maintenance and improvements on the Rifle / Pistol ranges and the Skeet/Trap fields and look at what additional shooting sports the membership would be interested in: Bunker Trap, Helice, Field Sporting, 3D Archery, etc.

           ~ HEATHER BROWN ~

POSITION: Current Secretary

MEMBER SINCE: 2018

DISCIPLINES: Sporting Clays

ACTIVITIES: I have served on the Board of Directors as Secretary for the last 2 years. For the past 12 years I have been implementing and managing Financial Reporting, Planning and Consolidation systems into fortune 500 companies. I am experienced at driving change management in large companies. Prior to my consulting career, I was responsible for planning and executing corporate and customer events at both Constellation Brands and Chase-Pitkin.

PRESENT & FUTURE INITIATIVES: As a Rochester Brooks Board Member, I would like to continue to grow awareness of Shooting Sports and continue to grow our membership! I would like to see continued partnership between members of different disciplines of the sport of shooting. I believe we need to focus on continued improvements to our grounds and clubhouse; for example, a new point of sale system which would allow us to better manage inventories and memberships and provide better reporting. I would like to see our club open more often to better serve our members, and I would like to expand our events to bring more variety and make them a go-to event for the entire family! My career experience of complex problem solving, team building and inter-departmental organization skills allow me to manage diverse personalities to best drive results that are most beneficial to all.

POSITION: Current Director

MEMBER SINCE: 1991

DISCIPLINES: Pistol and Rifle

ACTIVITIES: I have been instrumental in accomplishing multiple range expansions & upgrades over past 10 years. I introduced the Steel Challenge to the club in 2010. I am very involved in range safety protocols and procedures for rifle and pistol.

PRESENT & FUTURE INITIATIVES: My philosophy is that all club members across all shooting disciplines should share equally in the many benefits our Club has to offer. We are fortunate to have one of the best facilities anywhere, and we need to ensure that it is here for shooting enthusiasts to enjoy for many years to come. As a Board member, I believe my responsibility is to make decisions that are best for the club’s membership regardless of shooting discipline, and that ensure the future success of the Club.
