Steve’s boat is stored in the yard and a discussion followed concerning insurance. A cheque in the required amount was included with the application. Moved by Rheal and seconded by Paul that the application be accepted pending confirmation of insurance. Carried.
The Christmas Party will be held on Dec 7. George and Rheal reported that 44 members have responded with 31 ordering lobster. The lobsters are $6.50/lb. The reception begins at 6pm with dinner at 7pm. Members are to bring gifts marked male or female and are not to exceed $10. A collection of non-perishable food items will be made for the local food bank.
Stan reported on the meeting with the Town on Oct 26. Stan, Eric and Daryl met with John Jarvie and Charles Jensen and asked for direction on how to replace the winch house. The first step is to have an environmental assessment done. Plans would have to be submitted and reviewed before a building permit is given.
The Town would consider a loan for improvements that would be paid back by the membership. The Town would want a list of members.
A discussion followed concerning sewerage. There are many solutions that do not require being hooked up to the Town system that meet environmental standards.
It was stated that Bonny’s cottage has been sold to the Town. This was seen as a good time to approach the Town about a new building that would serve both the Town’s needs and those of the Club.
Motion to adjourn – Moved by Derek, the meeting adjourned at 8:45 pm
