Dockmaster Report:  Scotty Yates on the Boat Dock Wait List, there are over 60 on PB List and 10 on SB list.  Dock Rules are available, and they may undergo a revision this year.  The Maximum Boat length is 23’, width 8.5’.  If a dock becomes available boats 12-18’ in length may get a dock quicker depending on which dock is open.  Storage is NOT guaranteed when you get a dock space.  Improvements to the storage lot include a new fence and gate, thanks to all who worked on this project.When boats are stored leave your motor down, do not lock trailer tongue or wheels.  Lock code will be changing often to avoid unauthorized use of the ramp and storage access.  The Boat Assist List is being revised.

Rick Plite reminded Award winners the Club Rules state YOU must receive your contest awards in Person, At the Meeting.  After 3 meetings the money will be returned to Club account.

Don Vogel asked anyone cleaning barnacles at the ramp or pad in storage area to please clean the area when you are done.
