Sept. 22, 2011 Meeting Minutes/News:  The monthly meeting of the Fish Creek Atlantic Salmon Club was called to order at 7:10 PM by Tom Schneider.

Tom reported on the ultra-violet degradation of our sign at the hatchery and his effort to have a new sign made.

Discussion continued on things we are doing to modify the hatchery equipment and enclosure for this year:

·         Tank #1 has been moved and modified to be more like #2 & #3.  A new stand for it has been completed.  The tank floatation guide system has been completed and foam insulation inserted into the tank wall cavities.  The tank has been leveled and insulated.  New egg baskets will still need to be built for this tank.

·         Tank #2 has been insulated and leveled.  The tank flotation guide system still needs to be installed.

·         Tank #3 was moved to a better location, insulated and leveled.  The floatation guide system still needs to be installed.

·         Sheet plastic has been installed under the cement ceiling section of the hatchery to reduce heat loss there.  Insulation may be added later.

·         The heavy clear plastic material, which Gene had recommended, is being installed to improve the down-stream curtain end of the hatchery.

·         Harden plans to complete work on the hatchery roof, as soon as their work schedule permits.

·         Scheduled work days to complete the planned modifications will continue at 9:30 AM each Sunday, until the work is completed.

Meeting adjourned at around 8:00 PM.  Our next meeting will be held on October 27th at 7 PM in the Camden Rod and Gun Club Building.

Much of this is made possible by the contributions of Spey Nation.
