Rocky Mountain Flycasters - Board Meetings

Board of Directors Meeting - January 16, 2007

Attendees: Greg Evans, Ron Sheets, David Piske, Chris
Sheafor, David Coulson, Paul Fromme, John Frazer, Frank
Cada, Ken Eis, Chuck Connolly, Mike Frey, Lee Evans Meeting
was called to order at 7:10. The meeting was held at
Cipoletti's since the Sports Station was unavailable.
Positive response to this new location suggests that future
meetings may be moved, pending response from Cipoletti's
restaurant. Minutes of the November meeting were approved.

Treasurer's report: Balance in RMFC account is
8492.54. Balance in Projects account is $2533.35. Receipts
from last meeting raffle were $275. Admission tickets to the
Xmas party netted $590. NTU sent $60 for new memberships.
Xmas party cost was $649.

Membership: Current membership is 924. Methods for
increasing e-mail list were discussed. Possibly the
inclusion of a method for registering an e-mail address on
the Web site is worth considering. An expenditure of $40 was
approved for plastic name-tag holders.

President's report: Greenback recovery efforts have
been placed on hold while discrepancies in taxonomy of
existing populations are resolved. Funding for this research
is not available.

CTU Rendezvous will be held April 13-14 in Redstone.
Attendees are sought. Tentatively these will be Ken Eis and
Chris Sheafor.

Suggestions for CTU mini-grants were solicited. Bring ideas
to next meeting. Habitat enhancement opportunities or ideas
were solicited.

Payment for web master is required. Greg and Doc will
determine amount based on minutes of summer retreat.

A web site report submitted by Paul Wehr is included as a
part of these minutes.

The status of the handout for the Fly Shops, and inclusion
of this handout in the Web site was discussed.

Fund raising will depend on the establishment of projects
requiring funds. A 2008 banquet has been proposed, and
details will be developed.

The quarterly raffle report was submitted.

CSU Scholarship: The members voted unanimously to
support a $2000 scholarship to CSU. The funds will be
obtained from a membership drive that will seek to match a
$1000 challenge grant. Any funds above $2000 will also be
applied to the scholarship. It was agreed that the
scholarship should be named to reflect the participation of
Rocky Mountain Flycasters and to honor Dr. Robert Behnke.
The grant will be defined to support Graduate Research in
cold-water fisheries. The grant application will encourage
research devoted to salmonid species, Colorado, the Front
Range, and Greenback recovery. The May General meeting
should complete the scholarship fund drive. Appropriate
publicity in the Web site and local papers will be sought.

Youth Camp: A motion was presented, seconded and
passed to support the annual CTU youth Camp, with Chapter
funds of $375. Camp will be held June 10-16 at Peace Ranch.
Greg Sheets will be contacted for advice about soliciting
participation in an essay contest to determine the
participant. Donations of gear will not be solicited.

Programs: The next general meeting will be an
exposition of fly tying. Tentative participants include Rick
Takahashi, and Vince Wilcox. Other tyers might include Dave
Coulson, Don Davis, Greg Sheets, Greg Friedman, Jeff Wagner,
or Tim England. Ideas for programs were solicited.

Raffle table: Donations for the raffle table will be
solicited. Suggestions to purchase items for the table were
discussed, and a decision was deferred until donations have
been solicited.

TU movie: A TU fishing movie made by the Trout Bums
group will be shown at the Lory student center at CSU at
7:30 on Feb. 15. Admission is $12 at the door. The movie is
recommended.

Web site report from Paul Wehr: The web site
continues to receive about 2000 page hits each month, no
great change over the past few months. By far, the greatest
percentage of visitors continues to be search engines such
as Google, Yahoo, Excite, and MSNbot. Our site is often
visited by people clicking on the search results from these
search engines.

We also get visitors directed from Colorado Trout Unlimited,
St. Petes, Bobs Flytying, National TU, West Denver TU, Front
Range Anglers, and a few generic fly fishing sites. From the
web logs, it is impossible to tell when and if our members
frequently visit the site. I have only received a few email
messages from links on the site.

I continue working on a new color design based on Trout
Unlimited's guidelines but before releasing it, I want to
work out a backup program for all the RMF files and change
the menuing system a bit to reflect more of TU's emphasis on
conservation.

I also plan on adding some of the information passed around
about water temperatures, but I need to study it a little
longer to put together some of the highlights and then link
to the more detailed information provided by Mark Coleman
and CTU.
