    2. Orientation Manual
      Board members were reminded that each member needed to make updates to their particular area of expertise.
      Dropbox use and Maintenance -reminder to review read only text file that describes how to correctly add items to drop box.
    3. Reminder that we agreed to set up a booth at the Lory State Park 40th Anniversary (Sat., July 11) and demonstrate fly casting. Wil, Linda and Dick were the only volunteers for the booth.
    4. The topic of volunteers for New West Fest on Aug. 15th and 16th was brought up. Since no new volunteers were forth coming, the board scratch RMF participation with the previously approved and budgeted booth.
    5. Project Healing Waters - Dave Morse
      Dave reported that fly tying classes are finished up, but he is still meeting with a group wanting to firm up a Colorado-Wyoming Alliance.
      The first big fundraiser for Project Healing Waters will happen Labor Day weekend. The event will be sponsored by the Developer at Water Valley. The event hopes to raise $40,000. The event will include several categories of tournament fishing events. Dave requested that RMF spend $300.00 to fund either the Kids or the Biggest fish tournament.
      Dick Jefferies moved to fund the event. The motion was seconded and passed
    6. Revegetation on the Big Thompson
      Planting on the North Fork of the Big Thompson River is scheduled for 11/2015 and 2/2016.
    7. Funding for multi-basin Grant.
      Dick moved that RMF initiate a Kick Start Program using financial details to be clarified once Chris Sterm (CWCB) confirms what if any of the current multi basin funds may be used in this campaign.
  3. New Business

    1. Wil brought up the fact that Sean Cronin has resigned from the board and asked the board to consider replacements.
    2. Dennis Cook recommended that we formally sever our agreement with Larimer County Boys and Girls Club regarding quid pro quo agreement for van use during Youth Camp. LBGC is no longer able to provide a van for our use during day camp. After discussion, board members agreed to vacate the agreement.
    3. The board decided that we will not participate in The Day of Kids on Aug. 29th.
    4. Colorado TU status report - David Nickum
      • A new Fund Raiser - Outfitter Round up for Rivers- was discussed. This is a fund raiser that would work through outfitters, where customers could donate funds for river restoration through their outfitter, There was general agreement that our chapter would like to investigate this fundraiser.
      • The Long Draw litigation is closer to settlement. A fiscal sponsorship role is possible for CTU, and there will be plenty of volunteer opportunities. There is hope that the settlement might occur within 2 months.
      • There was discussion of the positive and negative impacts of the Northern Integrated Supply Project.
        David offered the support of CTU for whatever decisions RMF makes with respect to NISP
      • It was decided that we should reach out to Ken Kehmeir of Colorado Parks and Wildlife and John Stokes of the City of Fort Collins Natural Areas and River Sustainability Dept. for presentations on NISP.
      • David formally recognized Dick as the CTU volunteer of the Year.
