Meeting Minutes - December 13, 2011

     Rich Terry called the meeting to order.  Minutes from previous meeting were read and approved.  Rich gave a financial report and said
we have a new balance of $5385.00.  Rich at this time made a plea for someone to step forward and take on the duties of treasurer.   The
financial report was approved.

     At this point we had a surprise visit from Santa.  Everyone received a little goody from Santa and he wished us all a Merry Christmas.

     Rich announced that the banquet date was March 24, 2012.  He listed the door prizes as a rod, a kayak and a television.

     Denis Mora reported on Trout in the Classroom.  There had been some concern for the high mortality of the eggs, but that problem has been
stabilized and everything looks good now.

     Our annual polar bear fishing trip to the Lehigh will be on January 14th.  Those interested will meet at the trust at 9 a.m.  We will
caravan up, fish in the morning and have lunch at the Brass Rail.

     The first annual trip for steelhead on the Salmon River in Pulaski, New York went well, although not many fish were caught.  The guys ate
well and had good accommodations and were already looking forward to next year.

     Mike Wilson reported that Lorimar Park would be affected if  Montgomery County cuts the funds for County Parks.  Potentially parks
would be closed or at least cut back in hours.  A debate followed on what it means to close a park.

     Rich reported that due to construction at the Trust, we will have to relocate for January and February.  The meetings will be held at the
Pennypack Environmental Center at 8600 Verree Road in Philadelphia.  It is at the intersection of Verree and Bloomfield.  Rich said that some
nice size fish had been seen in the Pennypack and that we should all get out and "wet a line".

     The business meeting was declared over.  After a break, Wendell Ozefovich aka Ozzie gave an excellent power point presentation on
underwater photography of trout.

     Respectfully submitted,

     Bill McNamara
