Craig attended the WI Deer Advisory Committee Meeting in Stevens Point. Craig is the representative for Jefferson County.

Ron Mehring offered to let us use, or purchase gun racks. They are wooden stands that would elevate the firearms so that they are both more visible and so that they take up less space than being laid out flat on a table. The Board decided to try six small gun racks to see if they work well before purchasing any. They will be used on the stage tables only noting that there is little room on the other raffle tables.

Mike Stevens has aprons, towels, and truck ready for banquet.

Jerry Jackson will contact R and M Small Engine about buying a chainsaw or other small items at cost for possible raffle items at banquet. Jerry will get back to the Board with pricing by next meeting.

Anita will get banquet ticket applications to Rock River Bait Box (new bait shop near the Bark River Hatchery) to have available to distribute to customers.

Craig made a motion to adjourn, Anita Freeman seconded.

Next meeting is Thursday, February 25th at Paddy’s
