Jon Petrowske gave a brief overview of the DNR Advisory Committee Meeting that he and Tim Waldo attended recently in regards to Pike regulations on Red Lake. It appears that due to the many variables involved, that the current rules and regulations are not working and will be changed in the coming years. The DNR will be polling for public opinion possibly starting next year. Regulation changes may not take effect until 2020, as it needs to go through the Fisheries and DNR Committees also.
Bob Cribb was present to express his thank you to everyone for helping at the benefit that was held at West Winds in August. Dollars collected from this benefit are split equally between the Kelliher Fire and Kelliher First Responders, and URLAA. He then presented the URLAA with a check for $1467.00; these monies are a benefit to our general fund (non-gambling).
Next meeting will be held on October 16th, 2018 at West Winds, Waskish.
Motion to adjourn was made by Joe Corcoran and seconded by Jon Petrowske/Bobbie Oen. Unanimous.
Minutes respectfully submitted by Secretary Betty Mohs.
