Rocky Mountain Flycasters - Board Meetings

November 28, 2007

The board meeting was called to order by President Ken Eis. New officers Jim Lilly, vice president, Dave Coulson, treasurer, and Lee Evans, secretary, were present. Chris Sheafor, Guy Turenne, Frank Cada, and Bob Streeter were also present.

Minutes of last board meeting were read and approved.

Dave gave the treasurer’s report and told about the progress of switching over signature cards with the bank. He needs published minutes of the general meeting where new officers were elected to file with the bank, since they treat us as a corporation. Lee said he would type them up and send them to Dave.

Lee reported membership at 869 with 12 new members. However there were 77 members that needed to renew. Bob suggested calling those to remind them. The idea was floated as a goal and a way to involve more members.

Ken gave the president’s report. He noted that the mining act had passed the House, without support of our representative Musgrave. A number of board members reported hearing from senators and representatives, but there was no response from Musgrave.

In old business, the Christmas party was discussed and planned. It will be held at Manno’s Restaurant on Dec. 14 starting at 6:30. A white elephant gift exchange will take place and the cost will be just enough to cover the cost of the catered food.

The bylaws committee reported they had rewritten the bylaws in such a way to need 12 members to fill all of the positions. After discussion about the difficulty of getting members to commit, a new set of bylaws were drafted that are more in line with present practice. The committee will meet again after the first of the year to get them ready to present to the board.

Discussion on the Data Loggers to monitor stream conditions in Phantom Canyon and Eagle’s Nest showed that Larimer County is not opposed but The Nature Conservancy wants a more elaborate device. Mark Coleman continues to work on this.

The difficulty getting speakers for our general meetings was discussed. Chris reported that St Peter’s Flyshop was scheduled for the January meeting, with a fly tying expo for February. Doc Sheets was trying to get Chuck Prather to talk about fishing Central America, and perhaps we can get Peter LaDue to talk about fishing Granby, Fraser, and the upper Colorado. Both Guy and Dave said they could do a presentation if it was necessary.

Bob reported on the latest SWIG (Strategic Water Information Group) activities. We did donate to them $100 to help maintain their website. The various representatives were doing a shared values process to try to find common ground on the Seamen/Halligan expansions. The involved cities have expressed an interest in helping with the fish habitats. CTU and our chapter are working on a joint resolution to present to the SWIG group.

The sale of the Big Thompson properties was presented by Frank and Dave. Our biggest concern is losing access to the river, but it was difficult to tell if any of the parcels were involved with access. We had a good roundtable discussion about the process. The Larimer County Parks Advisory Board, of which Dave and Frank are members, is the place to speak publicly about our recommendations.

The meeting adjourned.

Respectfully submitted,

Lee Evans
RMF Secretary
