RV Shows: A list was sent to all the directors of when the RV shows are being held and where. It is very important we get someone to be at each show. The Marketing committee had a teleconference just before us and it was reported that they are working on brochures, and things we will need in the booths for the shows. They are looking for someone for the printing of the brochures and maybe even the state books. These shows are very important to help get the home grounds camping reservations going. The booth will be shared between the Town of Rome and the WTA.

Bruce: Bruce met with Jay Adams last week and the survey is finished. All the stakes are in and the boundaries are all made. This was the one of the things that needed to be done before we can form the corporation. He also reported he met with an irrigation company and received a proposal to put irrigation by the trap houses and sidewalks. He will bring this proposal to the face to face meeting.

Don: Don reported that he talked to Scott Young, the person in charge of the Adams-Friendship Green Devils Trap Team. They helped with one of the food vender areas at the state shoot. They were supposed to receive half of the profits from this tent. We were never notified by the person who set up this contract. After Don and Scott discussed this they agreed on $1000. This was relayed to Eric and he will be issuing a check to the Green Devils Trap club. We appreciated your help at the state shoot.

Manager: There was a lot of things brought up when the directors were talking about the job description and compensation for the manager. It is not just the hours and pay. There is a lot that has to be considered for this position. There was so much brought up between the directors that they thought it might be a good idea to form a small committee to work out as many details as they can. This is two big of a job to handle on a teleconference call. Bruce was going to call a few people to work on this committee. They are trying to include a few people who know a little more about how the campsite and complex would run. That way when a manager is hired they would know what their job would involve and what the compensation would be.

Board of Directors: It was brought up that there are a few directors that are up for re-election. They are Bruce Stiteley, Bill Simonar, Gary Fechter and Dennis Taylor . They all said they would run again. It is great to see all the dedication.

Meeting was adjourned at 8:30 pm

Next meeting: Teleconference on Monday January 20, 2014 at 6:30. The next face to face meeting will be on January 25, 2014. It will be held at the Lake Sherwood Lodge, 1148 W. Queensway, Nekoosa, WI 54457.
