Old Business:

Everyone thought that the landowner’s dinner went well. The food was good. Attendance by club members was lower than usual. We had just enough gifts for the landowner’s. Eric thanked the committee for all of their work.

The president and secretaries position are up for election in October if you are interested or know of anyone that is please let anyone on the nominating committee know. The nominating committee is our current officers and board of directors.

New Business:

Ulrich farms wants to meet with us and representatives of the Amery club, they were not happy that we opened the trails for the few days this year because of the lack of snow and the warm temperatures that we had for the few days the trails were open. They would like to move the trail that crosses their land to avoid their hay fields. Eric Hallen and Kevin McNutt will represent from our club.

Motion was made and carried that we move one of our meetings to Woodhill Bar and Grill. It was decided that our December meeting will be scheduled there.

We got an update from Brian Swanson on how Greg was doing after his motorcycle accident. At this time they are waiting for the swelling in his brain to go down before deciding what steps will need to be taken. A caring bridge site has been set up for Greg. Go to to keep up on Greg’s progress. Please help support Greg and his family through his recovery. Flowers will be sent to Greg from the club when he is out of ICU.

We had eight applicants for our $500.00 scholarship at OHS. We have chosen our recipient. It will be presented at awards night at the high school on Monday May 11th.

Fair committee had nothing to report – Eric will be hosting a special fair committee meeting in July at his home to start planning for the fair.
