August Canoe Club Minutes

About 9 of us enjoyed a pot luck picinic at Alten Baker park. Fried chicken, grilled hot dogs, salad, chips, vegatables and dip made up a nice repast on a warm night. There was some discusion on the future of the club. We are still limping along without a Prez. and VP. As always lots of swaping of trip stories and routes. Be sure to join us at our next meeting. The more the merrier.
