· Eggs were picked up by  Arley Morey from the Casco, ME Hatchery and delivered to our hatchery on Feb.  14, Valentine’s Day.The 45,000+ eggs  arrived in very good condition and were placed in the egg  trays.
·Since arrival, the eggs have been doing fine with only minor  losses.The hatchery schedule is working  well and the eggs are checked daily.
·Fish from Kevin Kelsey at Grande Isle  VT.
Kevin offered  25,000 – 50,000 Atlantic salmon fry to our club this year.Due to construction at the Grande Isle  hatchery, the tanks these fish are held in will be removed in early April and  the fish must be picked up before then.We will pay for the 28 day testing, to be done at Kennebec River  Biosciences (Bill Keleher).  Motion made and  seconded.
We will try to  pick up the fish on Friday April 5 and stock them the next day, Saturday
April 6.The truck we rented before with two circular  tanks requires a CDL license to operate.If someone with a CDL license is able to drive to Vermont and pick up the  fish, please contact someone on the Board.
Two guests attended the meeting – John Hadyk (Johnnie’s Pier 31  Restaurant) and friend Terry McKay.Both  have heard about the club but wanted to learn more, and both became  members.

·Paul Miller mentioned that the club held several picnics in past  years to introduce the public to the club in a streamside setting.Since a lot of people know OF us but not too much ABOUT us, another picnic would be a  good idea.The third week in May was  suggested and sites to be considered include:Forest Park at one of the pavilions near the creek; the fishing lodge off  Palmer Road; and the park behind Lynn Scott’s trucking company.Member Paul Wenham is President of the  Friends of Forest Park group and will be contacted for scheduling  availability.
