A member voiced a concern that the WAPOA 5k race registration implied that the GOLA would receive funds from the race, but we haven’t received any in the past. A copy of the registration form wasn’t available at the meeting. Mike Rancour took the action to obtain a form and follow up with WAPOA as needed.

Mike Rancour stated that an update from the DNR on the status of a new O’Brien launch had not been received.

A member stated that the public access sign for the Goodrich Launch was down again.

A member requested that the names of all paid up members be listed on the website. This will be investigated for 2011.

The situation with the potluck was discussed. The plan was to support the Legion and participate in the pork chop lunch. However, the Legion pork chop lunch was cancelled mid-week, and there wasn’t time to organize the potluck. Plans for 2011 will be discussed in 2011 meetings.

A motion to adjourn was made, seconded and approved.
