City of Hanover contacted us to schedule removal of plywood.
Completed Saturday, April 23rd by members of St. Michael Club and NW
Trails. Materials in secure storage for season. In future,
City will contact St. Michael Club directly and they will organize.

- Map Status:
Approximately 30 boxes of maps in the shed. Decision made not to
reprint maps next year. Suggested that we send letter to
advertisers to thank them and advise that their ad will run another
year. Brian and Rocky to coordinate.
- June General Membership Meeting: Will be held at the Shed, not Medina.
- Trail Issues: Craig met with
Three Rivers Park personnel, Hennepin County and City of Maple Grove in
effort to see how we can get our trail to Elm Creek Park despite
reconstruction of Hwy 81 (planned construction over next 2 years).
Bottom line, tentatively agreed to keep as much of the trail intact,
with exception of the entrance to south end of park off Territorial and
Cty Rd 81 (entirely new entrance to park would be necessary, along with
bridges; at this time they are not willing to commit to this due to
unknown future of snowmobiling in NW Hennepin County). However, they
did tentatively agree to look at providing a trail head for snowmobiles
to park and drop in the picnic area on the hill above the beach. Next
step is to present this option to the Park Board for permission. Note
there is still access to park from the north end of park. Craig to

- Door prize: Revisited the
$50 door prize for General Membership Meeting. Consensus is that this
alone does not draw members to meetings. Motion passed to abandon
current door prize and solicit other ideas.
