Website Campgrounds: The directors have looked at several different proposals for construction of the web site for the Home Grounds. They chose Inter Link Web Works for the development of the web site. The proposal was for $9500 for the initial set up. Once the website is up and running the website will be ours to maintain. The directors will work on making sure we have a few people to be able to do this maintenance. This proposal was motioned by Don and second by Denny. It went to vote and passed the directors. The directors will contact Joe Ebel and get the Home grounds RV Park Inc. started. This will take about 6 weeks to get it up and running. This website will allow our campers to make reservations, check for availability ability and pay with credit cards and so on.

Board of directors for Homegrounds: The names for consideration for this board will be Jessica Fandrich, Rich Johnson, Bill Simonar, and Fred Kasten. Bruce said he would contact them before the next teleconference to see if they are interested in pursuing those positions. If so this Board of Directors can then get started on the process of hiring a manager the home grounds. The directors had a few applications for this position, the directors are recommending applications from Dennis Taylor and Glenn Hamerly. They felt that they would be the most qualified for this mangers position. It would then be up to the board of Directors of the home grounds to interview the applicants for the managers position. Then whom ever the home grounds board does not pick for the manager position would be recommended to sit on the board of directors for the home grounds.

Programs: There was mention of the state shoot programs and working on getting prices for the programs and cost of mailing. This will be discussed at a later date after they work on getting the quotes. Lori will be doing the programs, getting ads and so on.

Central Zone Shoot: Kevin mentioned that Sauk Prairie said they would not be interested in hosting it. Kevin said he was going to call Janesville to host it. The directors will address this at next meeting after Janesville is contacted. Rick said he is also waiting on programs and applications. He is hoping to get all this information soon.

Golf Carts: It was brought up about what we will charge for rental. There were several inquiries about this so it is imperative we try to get some kind of ideas of were we will get the golf carts. It was put out there and all the directors agreed to get some ideas for rental before the 12/23 meeting.

Brochure: The directors brought up we were in need of a brochure for Wisconsin dells promotion. This will give advertising for the homegrown that will spread the word of what we will be offering. There was a committee set up to get this brochure ready.

State Team: It was brought to Kevin that we had a mistake on the web site for Janet Reding’s average. Theresa was going to send the right information to Mike so he can change the information on the website. There was also a misspelled name which we will also fix.
