Time: 6:00 PM
Type: Chapter

Location: Davis, Thoen, Kramer & Associates- Ameriprise Financial Services, Inc.
Directions: 329 N Main St, Austin MN 55912 (Map)

Details:

Topics to discuss include: • Our groups involvement/commitment to helping out with the Game & Fish Building at the Mower County Fair. • What steps should we be taking to get a land acquisition completed before year end, if possible ? • Do we need to start training or recruiting a new group treasurer ? • Status update on how the Windom 4H kids pheasants project is coming along. • Other projects/issues we should be dialing in ? The main thing on my mind is working on accomplishing a land acquisition this year.

Notes:

We will be soliciting volunteers to help out at the Mower County Fair this year August 9-14 to man the fish tanks in the Game and Fish Building. Jamie will be sending out an e-mail to enlist volunteers. We will be responsible for manning the building August 11th this year.

The land aquisition of the Crandall property was discussed and we will still be persuing that aquistion as one of our 2016 goals .

Jakes Day / Pheasants Forever Youth Trap shoot. July 16th at the CVCC starting at 9:00 a.m. - 2:00 p.m. We wll be donating $300 to the NWTF to help with the days activities. Free for all kids 6 and over.

The Schottler propery needs some cover strips planted for winter pheasant cover and feeding plots of corn, sorgum and milow established. Jamie is going to take the lead with finding the machine with Soil Water Conservation and if we can get the seed and food plots going we think we have a volunteer to plow and plant the land. We will readdress the initial plan with Justin Hanson to lay out the property. DNR approval is pending.

We will be transitioning Marty out of the Treasurer position as he is relocating to Rochester. Marty will be finishing his duties by the end of June. Any ideas for a new treasurer, get with any committee member.
