Highlights of May Board of Directors Meeting RFF


Conservation Committee Report: Jack informed that new monthly-withdrawal memberships to Water Watch in the month of May will be matched by another donor. Upon motion made and seconded, it was agreed that the club will contribute $50 per month to Water Watch, with Theresa to make the arrangements to have it automatically deducted from the club’s bank account. As a result, the club’s $600 donation will become $1,200.
We also discussed the upcoming fund raiser, co-sponsored by Siskiyou-Wild and the Rogue River Keeper, to raise funds for litigating the violations revealed by the study of the Medford water treatment plant outflow. The law firm needs money to hire expert witnesses before proceeding. Upon motion made and seconded the board voted to contribute $500 to the fund, either to the Rogue River Keeper or to the law firm, with John M. to advise Theresa as to which.

Raffle: Keith thought that his first raffle went well, but he needs to be sure of the arrangement for the rod and the reel. One raffle is to have a made-to-order rod made by Bob Claypool, and the next one is to have a nice reel. April was a rod, and June will be a reel. The club pays Mr. Claypool $125 for the rods, which is sufficient for a nice 4-piece, 9-foot rod. If the winner wants a more expensive rod, he or she will need to negotiate with Mr. Claypool.

Summer ScheduleWe discussed club’s schedule for the summer. There will not be a club meeting in May since we have the auction scheduled. There will be a regular club meeting and regular board meeting in June. Will is getting the July speaker for the June meeting. There will not be a club meeting in July, and there will not be a board meeting unless some unforeseen need arises. The wine social will take the place of the regular club meeting in August. 

Outings: Dave H. reviewed the schedule for outings as follows:
         Upper Williamson - June 15-20 - led by John Ward
         N. Fork Sprague River - July 11-14 - led by John Ward
         Upper Sacramento - July 30 - led by Will Johnson
