John Gardner Chapter: May 2007 Meeting Minutes

The John Gardner Chapter of the Traditional Small Craft Association.

The meeting was called to order by President Spragg in the Community Boathouse on the UConn Avery Point Campus at 1:35.

Seven members and officers were in attendance.

A motion was proposed, seconded and passed to accept the Secretary’s Report from the April meeting, as distributed.

Treasure’s Reports for the month of April was not available due to absence of the Treasurer, Russ Smith. The balance at the beginning of April was $3824.11 and there was minimal activity in the account during April.

On the water:

Six members rowed out to Pine Island for the annual cleanup. Each member collected a large bag of trash and returned it to the mainland for disposal. There were small craft warnings posted and the row back required a bit of extra effort. I’m certain that our efforts are appreciated by UConn.

Annual Tag Sale will be held on morning of Saturday, June 9th. Fliers are available in the boathouse. Please note – start time will be 8:00 not the 10:00 noted on the fliers. Please correct any fliers that you post with a marker.

John Gardner Small Craft Weekend will be held on June 2 & 3 at Mystic Seaport. Several member are planning to attend. Stop by the boathouse on Friday evenings if you want to help coordinate attendance.
