Next Meeting:

        June 11 @ 6:30      FUN !!!   PRIZES !!!   CHEAP  BEER !!!    But no sex.

Minutes of the May 14th meeting:

Started the meeting by welcoming snowbirds Bill Sly and Ron Huber back from Florida and Arizona.  Both guys claimed the places they stay all winter are just like Exeland, except for lack of snow, cold, salt trucks and potholes.   Yeah – sounds just like Exeland in the winter time. (Not our two brightest members)

On a much more sober note, the passing of Leo Hoeft was acknowledged.  Flowers had been sent. Leo’s contributions to the local fur trapping community and actually to the entire state, were legendary.

Dean says we are “……financially viable”.  That means we ain’t broke yet, which was good news.

Daryl’s concealed carry class went really well.  The instructor didn’t charge a fee to the attendees so the club decided to mail him a check for $50 to at least cover his time and travel.

Scheduled the schoolyard fence takedown project for the 23rd (or the 22nd if you are the club president and don’t know how to read a calendar).

Robert has the Kids Fishing Expo ready to roll.  Work night Thursday and event on Friday.  In addition to a meal and fishing tackle there was a suggestion to give each kid a Poppy for Memorial Day and explain its meaning. (Note:  Diane Beise was contacted but she’d already sold out of Poppy-s for this year.  She will order 100 extra for 2018.)

Approved use of the clubhouse by the ATV Association for their June 20th meeting.  The Radisson/Exeland ATV club will host.  George reported the I-94 Trail will soon be ready for use.  Jim reported he’s been using it for months, ready or not.

Jiminey Trout is slowly pulling the Trout Fest together.  A cross county bicycle race has been added and he is actively pursuing other new attractions and entertainment ideas.  Don’t be afraid to contact him if you have a suggestion.  A little help goes a long way.

Ryan has tackled the bar rebuilding project and Robert reported working on the storage building conversion estimate.

Now that we will no longer be having a 3-D archery shoot at Trout Fest, the old targets are available to members at no charge.  Just pick one up and take it home.  The storage shed the targets presently occupy will be used to house traffic barricades/cones and orange fencing.  Any targets not taken by club members will be hauled to the dump.

Mike reported his 3 year term on the CDAC committee will expire this year and he wondered if anyone else wanted the job.  Mike is the most qualified person in the Northern Hemisphere for this position and we ain’t letting him off the hook.

Next meeting if June 11th.  Probably be a couple $100 cash tickets raffled off.  Ben Sihsman will probably win one and Rod Brown the other but if we get enough guys we can raffled a 3rd ticket so you still got a chance.  See you there.
