The board confirmed its electronic vote to give free membership to the Newsletter Editor/Web Master.
The patio and stairs were formed ready for pouring prior to high water; work will continue when the lake recedes.
The board confirmed that a source of potable or at least clean wash water at the club is a high priority and will continue to obtain ideas and information regarding how to address this matter. There will be a review of that information in the fall when the financial condition of the club for the year will be clearer.
The board was informed that A-1 Fixall is still looking for carburetor parts for the old generator and decided that action on a new generator should be taken next month if the old generator cannot be fixed.
The board reviewed the workday and was pleased with the results.
The board reviewed the spring launch and expressed appreciation to the Hancocks for a job well done. It was the consensus of the board that a larger and quieter venue would be good in the future.
The board voted to establish a budget line for all the fuels used by the various directors of the club for mowing; the barge and the committee boat.
Commodore Martin reported that he had received the offer of a Chrysler Bucaneer 18 for youth sailing. Secretary Otto in his capacity as Skipper of the Sea Scouts stated the boat would not be added to the fleet but would be accepted for resale. Commodore Martian will report back to the potential donor.
The board was informed that the lake level could rise to nearly the 1100-foot level (top of the dinghy park) and plans were made to evacuate the all boats and equipment to above that level.
Secretary Otto moved that the board authorize the painting of a compass rose around the base of the flagpole and either a compass rose or sailboat silhouette on the new patio when completed. It decided to paint compass roses in both places. Secretary Otto charged to proceed with the project.
The board had received an inquiry regarding the cost of storing an empty boat trailer when the boat is not on a mooring. It was decided that it should be treated the same as a stored boat and trailer.
Rear Commodore Mullen reported that the June social event he is sponsoring will be a ribbon cutting for the new patio construction schedules permitting.
The meeting was adjourned.
Henry Otto, Secretary
