The Treasurer’s Report was read and approved.
The Board discussed our upcoming Casino Night and Fish Fry fundraisers. They discussed the need for help in getting door prizes for both events as well as donations of cash for boxes of fish. Ron and Jerry agreed to pay for one box each and Ken signed up for two. We will get the fish through Gary Lock who can get a good price on the brand of catfish we have been using for the past two fish fry’s.
The Board discussed selling ads on our Fish Identifier Flyers to help cover the cost of printing and display cases. George made up sales packages for this purpose. To date, three ads are committed. Larry informed the board that eight boxes are currently in use around the lake with four more to be put up.
The Board discussed the 2008 Hybrid Striper Restocking Project. The fish (107,000, ¾ inch long) were released into the lake on May 8 by the Texas Parks & Wildlife Dept. There was discussion of the small size of the fish due to the fact that they were only in the hatchery one month. George is discussing the specifics of the contract with Burnet County Commissioner, Bill Neve and Hatchery manager Marc Jackson. Larry Boyd also expressed concerns about possible damage to the fish during the release process. George will address this with Steve Magnelia with the TP&W Dept. Also discussed were possible changes for next year.
The meeting was adjourned at 6:50 pm by President George Bold.
The next Board meeting will be held at 6 pm on June 17, 2008, at the LCRABuilding on Hwy 1431
