Gate hinges at Ft Christmas field have been broken. Jody Miller suggested that the club go ahead and fix it. Jody will assess the repair effort and then approach Trudy (park POC) about proceeding.
Potential new member Fred Baker was introduced.
Access to the college will be closed during the holidays and Raed will try to post a schedule of campus closures. Raed did not receive any response to queries on construction of a tower at the campus field but subsequently noticed construction away from the field area along the paved access road.
