Last chance to get recipes in for the cookbook.  Have about 6 people to work on it. Dennis is working on the tax filings for the Lake Association.  Liability insurance for the board and association is in effect.

Discussion about getting a member’s rate for rental of the Rod ‘n Gun Club, Kim will talk to the Dean about putting it on their agenda.  Fall newsletter will be put together all committees have got articles in to the communication committee.

Jacquelyn Bacigalupi – Habitat Specialist from DNR for our region was at this meeting.  Discussion about control of curly leaf pond weed.  It starts new growth in August from seeds.

Treatments: Herbicide applied in 50-60 degree water, in April or late May. Harvesting or cutting blades, only need to do it once per year, but needs to be done early to prevent pods from developing the seeds.

The DNR Grant program is only for herbicide treatments.  Looks like we would need a lake vegetation survey before applying for the grant, meaning we would not be able to do any treatments before 2008.
Next Board Meeting: 
February 6, 2007   7:00  Dassel Rod ‘n Gun Club.

Dec. 5, 2006 Special meeting with Pat Selter, VP of Professional Lake Management (the company doing our water quality testing.)  He reported our water quality tests for 2006, compare favorably to others in our eco-region. Need to look at a way to monitor the inlets especially after a heavy rain to help gather better data. Reviewed our Lake Management Plan and thought we had many good ideas and goals for monitoring and maintaining water quality, along with many other good ideas for education, and long range planning.  He shared with us the advantages of forming a Lake Improvement District.  Provided estimate of $12,000-15,000 for a lake vegetation survey.  He did give us some prices for treatment costs: Curly Leaf Pond – Chemical $300 per acre and need to be applied in May.  Milfoil – Chemical $350 per acre and have a performance guarantee.
