Old Business
Discussion continued regarding clearing trees or branches for the purpose of developing some view of the river from the clubhouse. A motion against "clearing trees for a view" was voted upon and approved 5-2.

Bill Eichbaum volunteered to pursue an on-going club concern regarding the deterioration of the path down to the island.

More discussion and some good ideas were put forth regarding having the club sponsor some events for members both large and small. It was suggested that members be contacted that might be willing to help promote and organize such events.

The meeting adjourned at 9:15 p.m.
