Pond Work Party – April 17th Big Success

I would like to thank everyone that helped at the pond today! We got quite a bit done. Our mowing group blazed it early. Jerry started mowing again at 730( he put in a day previous to today) and Scot Graham was also weed whacking away when I showed up. They kept on until the entire area was done, and looked like an estate.
Dave Olsen was head of the tulle clearing group. Dave, along with Greg Olsen, Chuck Hammond, Scott Shipley, Bill Burke, and Russ Selsor. Pulled tulles, and cleared the ramp making it safer and easier to use. Great job guys.
Gordon Simmons headed up the course division. With John Gambello bringing his boat and Captain we fixed several clips, buoys, and subfloats. We also found one of the north end gate subfloats needs the flotation repaired, which we will do at a later date.
Finally Steve Dachauer head of dock division, brought boards and supplies. Working this division was Derik Benson and Brad Conger. They replaced boards, cleaned, and stained both docks, benches, railings, and I think most everything that was nailed down. This was the last to finish staying until the job was done.
Many people worked in different areas also. Doug Klang did lots of cleaning, Art showed up and supervised, and max walked through the wet stain.
We accomplished a lot, the place looks great. If I missed anyone I’m sorry and please let me know so I can update.

Thank You to all who were able to help, especially our division and group leaders.

Club Dues

Per our bylaws, Club Dues must be paid by the November Meeting. Since meetings are done by Zoom, Members need to mail their dues and they must be post marked by November 4th, 2020. The Board decided to reduce Dues this year only to $130.00 for every membership.
