Steve made a motion to help fund the ATV tracks not to exceed $1000 dollars, Dan seconded, motion passed. Dan e-mailed Ryan who is on vacation and will contact Anita for check.
Fish Hatchery:
The meeting on the Hatchery came up with a lot of good ideas, but with no one to implement them. We talked about a donation box for the Bark River Fry Hatchery at each boat launch. Rob will ask for permission.
Proposed Land Purchase DNR:
Mark informed the group about a proposed land purchase by Inland Drive in Sullivan. The existing DNR land is land locked; this additional 40 acres of land would allow an easier easement from Hwy 18 to get to the 200 acre DNR parcel. Selling price is $150,000. The DNR is looking for partnering funds and applying for grant application which is due in November. The club decided to think on this proposal the next couple months and see how things come out.

The next Hunter Safety class is at Sportsman Club in Jefferson, June 13th.
Fishing Derby:
The Fishing derby is at the Legion Dugout June 6th. Derby has big donors on board and the FAWC is Main Sponsor.
