TU Chapter 468    
       Minutes from April 9, 2013

Rich Terry called the meeting to order.  The minutes from the previous meeting were read and approved.

John Beck gave the treasurers report.  The chapter has a balance of $6,074.23.  John contrasted the last years banquet with this year's.  We
took in more money this year, but that was offset by more expensive prizes.   We made $100 to $200 more this year than last.  The financial
report was approved.

Mike Wilson said we had 55 attend the banquet which is close to what it has been in previous years.

The Penn's Creek trip is all set for Thursday, April 18 to Sunday, April 21.

Mike Wilson gave our Saturday workdays as:  August 17, September 14 and October 12.  There will be a day, June 15th, for clean-up, straighten up
at the Natural Land Trust site - Mike put out a sign up sheet for workdays.  We need at least 8 members to show up to make these days effective.

The chapter picnic will be Saturday September 7, 2013.

After several failed attempts in the past, we have a successful candidate this year to the 2013 River Conservation and Fly Fishing Youth
Camp.  Our own Roman Molyj (pronounced Molly) wrote a great essay on his love of fly-fishing and the importance of stream conservation.  Everyone in the chapter is proud of Roman.

Denis Mora gave some dates for stream stocking in the area.   The next Pennypack stocking will be April 27.  This stocking will coincide with
the Rotary Youth Fishing contest on the same date. Members are asked to come out and take part.  Rich reported the trout in the creek at the
trust were active and healthy looking. Another member noted that there is algae in some areas and the water temperature was 65 degrees.  The
stream needs rain.

Denis brought litter bags for members to carry in their vests when fishing.  There has been complaints of litter on the stream banks.

After a break the chapter was treated to a power point presentation by Jason Cruz - Aquatic Biologist, on analyzing local stream conditions.

Respectfully submitted,

Bill McNamara
