•Treasurer’s Report (Glenn)
◦We are in good shape against the budget. Membership and rack rentals are good, as we have more racks this year. Repairs are high, we may need to reassess. Day passes are bringing in a lot of supplemental income.

◦Tax forms have been completed. John will review and get it in the mail.
◦Next big bill is the hull insurance (May renewal).

◾There was a complaint from a Lavaman representative about our canoes being in the way, and wanted us to move it. Ed felt this was an unreasonable request and held his ground. Carl was instrumental on convincing her how hard our club has worked and making her realize her demands were unreasonable. In the end, she agreed to give the club $500 more.
