 OLBC 10/14/14 Meeting Minutes

A dinner served by Jane and Gary Fritz in honor of all the help since Gary has been president of the club was enjoyed by all present.

Dany Liske also gave a presentation on the Ice Age Trail going around Otter Lake before the meeting began.

OLBC 10/14/14 Meeting Minutes

The meeting was called to order by President Gary Fritz at the Colburn Town Hall.

Officers present were: Pres. Gary Fritz, V.P. Dany Liske, Treasurer Diane Weggan and secretary Micki Hughes.

Members present were:  Terry Hughes, Jane Fritz, Judy, Joan and Ron Bowe, Don and Jen Amundson, John Goodman, Bill Brodaski (sp), Mary Jo and David Winkler, Dennis Angus, Jeff and Diane Deutschlander and Mike Olin.

Secretary’s

report was read.  Terry made a motion to accept minutes as read and Don A. 2nd.  Motion carried.

Treasurer’s

report was read.  A motion to accept was made by Terry, 2nd by Ron and carried. 

OLD BUSINESS

House visits have not yet taken place due to schedule conflicts.  Visits will now take place in the spring of 2015.

The Young Old Timers are booked for the chicken dinner.

Kids Ice Fishing letters for donations have been mailed.

Mike and Jeff are looking at times to get together for further work on the web site advertising.

NEW BUSINESS

Marty will again donate the trophies and medallions for the kids fishing contest.  We will no longer have the year put on them in order to utilize them longer.

Judy made a motion, 2nd by Micki to allow Gary to purchase materials for making the buttons.  Motion carried.

Larry will look into getting the peg board for the ice fishing contest.

Dennis will contact the Rod & Gun for the tumbler.

Larry will find out if we can use one generator and Herb will be contacted about the other.

Gary will contact the Sportsmen’s Club about the food wagon.

Mike asked for approval for the 2015 Ice Fishing Contest Poster.  Don A. made a motion to have 75 posters printed as they are, with Dennis A. 2nd.  Motion carried.

Discussion was held regarding ice fishing poles for kids that did not have one.  Some members are willing to bring extra poles they have at home for such an emergency, however, it will not be advertised as such.

Discussion was held on what kind of raffles to do for the contest.  Larry made a motion for there to be two 50/50 raffles.  Motion was seconded by Mike.  Motion carried.

Last year two gift certificates were given as parent drawings.  Jane made a motion for the same to be done this year.  Judy 2nd the motion.  Motion carried.

A questionnaire from the DNR on the life jacket loaner program will be given to Herb.

The one jacket missing has been found – due to the kiosk being gone when the person got off the lake.  The kiosk is in the Jepson shed for the winter.

The south boat landing has new signs by the garbage cans.

Aerators 

The town board is interested in changing the amount of money they are giving towards operation of the aerators, but would like to see a response from the county first.  Gary sent a letter to Larry Ritzlinger concerning this matter.   In response, Larry suggested that we ask for an exact amount - $2000.00.  There will be no assistance this year as the budget is already set.  The first available monies would be in 2016.  Ideally it would end up with the club, town and county all doing $2000.00 each.

Discussion followed on what the aerators actually do.  They stabilize the oxygen levels in the lake at the time they are turned on.  The aerators stay on once they are turned on and run 12 hours full power and 12 hours ½ power.

Discussion was held on the county land on the west side of the lake.

The next meeting of the Otter Lake Boosters will be December 9th , 2014 at 7:00 at the Colburn Town Hall.

A motion to adjourn was made by Jane, 2nd by Jeff.  Motion carried.

Respectfully submitted by Micki Hughes

OLD BUSINESS

Signs for the chicken dinner.  Herb reported that the signs would be ready in a week or two and he would need to get post.  They are vinyl and 3 ½ x 6.

The grill trailers are ready.  Terry is to put the old trailer on Craigs list, but then discussion came up regarding using the trailer to move the pot-a-potty.

The Kiosk is ready at the south boat landing and Herb has an inventory of the life vest.  Members please check for damages if you go by.

Discussion was held for the date on the 2015 Kids Ice Fishing Contest.  Larry made a motion to keep it on the second Saturday of Feb. which will be 2/14/2015.  Motion carried.

Mike and Jeff are working on the web site for advertisement for both individuals and companies to donate.  Ads sizes would be business card size with their logo and it would take our web users to their companies web site.  Other options for just and ad on our site would be ½" x 3-4" $50.00 annually, 1 – 1 ½ "$100.00 annually and 2-3" size $250.00 annually.  This would include up to 4 changes in a year.  The club would reserve the right to reject any ads and keep a list of clients.

Other research would be to get endowment funds at different levels:  plat./gold/silver/bronze.  75% of the interest could be distributed automatically.

The web page is getting approx. 61 hit per day.

A motion to proceed w/the proposal submitted by Mike and Jeff w/ads provided we can get the pages to come up was made by Judy and 2nd by Terry.  Motion carried.

NEW BUSINESS

Fish Survey.  It was noted that there is not a fish biologist in Chippewa Co. at the present time and if they hire in house it could be a month or two.  If they hire statewide it could be up to a year. 

Gills are at 7-71/2 average.  Crappies are small

Walleye are at 1 per acre.  They did an entire lake shock and an e-mail has been sent to the game warden, but has not heard back yet on the final survey.  There was some discussion on how accurate the survey was as members have had different results with recent fishing.

As a side note – there will be a creel count this summer and winter with lots of game wardens on the lake checking the creel counts and looking for invasive species on trailers going in and out of the lake.

Because of the survey we can not put any fish in the lake for two years.  Except of course the DNR.  They are looking at possibly shocking the lake again in two years.

Gary and Jane were putting items away in the booster club trailer and noticed a lot of wet stuff.  The roof is leaking.  The roof membrane is shredded back about a foot.  Discussion was held on purchasing materials needed to repair the roof.  Larry made a motion to purchase materials and was 2nd by Shirley.  Motion carried.

Discussion was held on signs for the county land regarding how they will be mounted and where and for what use (fishing, ATV, UTV, walking, and snowmobile)

Chicken Dinner Prep

We will have a meeting on June 3 at 7:00 to prepare for the chicken dinner.  The quilt the ladies made was revealed and it was decide to do a separate raffle for the quilt at $5. per ticket or 5 tickets for $20.00.  Motion made by Donna and 2nd by Jane.  Motion carried.

SPECIAL ISSUES

For those who did not know it was mentioned that member Paula Brown had open heart surgery and was at home recuperating.

The game warden will be showing up at the Bass Tournament this weekend and we are seeing about Rebecca coming back to the chicken dinner to give out information regarding invasive species.  Someone dumped 60 tires into the swampy part of the lake (wet land) and they are asking that we keep an eye out.  They have been removed.

Butch brought up (per Gary) the club buying 2-12 packs for Jim Isenburger for pumping the pot-a-potty and to receive a free membership.  Don A. 2nd the motion.  Motion carried.

Gary and Mike attended the Conservation Congress and Don Dukershine asked for a $25.00 donation on behalf of OLB.  Gary made the donation.

Olynick’s have the town gravel bid.  It is $116.79 for a 15 yard load and you pay on delivery.  #715-668-5211.  Pit run will cost $6.33 which amount to $94.95 a load.

The jacks for the cooking trailer and shipping (on one) came to an extra $129.88.  Motion was made by Don. A and 2nd by Diane to pay the bill.  Motion carries.

Diane received 4 decals and can pick up more for memberships and donations.

Discussion was held on the Boosters and Sportsmen’s Club.

The Elec. Bill at this point is $2661.81 higher than last year.

The ladies asked if some of the $ from the quilt raffle, if it goes well could be set aside for next year in the making of a new project, as this years was all donated material.

The meeting was called to order by President Gary Fritz at the Colburn Town Hall.

Officers present were: Pres. Gary Fritz, V.P. Mike Olin and Sec. Micki Hughes and Treasurer Diane Weggan.

Members present were:  Terry Hughes, Jane Fritz, Don Weggan and Dennis and Laurel Angus. 

Secretary’s

report was read.  A motion to accept the minutes was made by Laurel and 2nd by Jane.  Motion carried.

Treasurer’s

report was read.  Terry made a motion to accept the report, 2nd by Dennis.  Motion carried.  Diane then read thank you notes from Jim & Karen Cukla, Buzzy and Butch.  A Letter from the Irma M. Miller Endowment fund was also read.

OLD BUSINESS

Signs for the chicken dinner.  No report was given as Herb and Shirley were gone.

The modifications on the grills will be made when the weather warms up.

The Kiosk.  Gary talked to Dan and our sign is in Madison.  Don Weggan had an additional update as the sign is now in Eau Claire.  Gary noted that the Kiosk sign will need to be taken down every fall.

Discussion was held on the aprons for the people who cook the chicken for the dinner.  It was decided that a dark color should be used.  Jane and Gary will research and order the aprons.

NEW BUSINESS

The donated trailer has a curved axel and will be very difficult to redo for our purpose.  It was decided to either post the trailer on Craig’s list or e-bay.  One of the members showed an interest in the trailer so selling it will be put on hold until said member has a chance to look the trailer over.  Jane made the motion to sell the trailer, 2nd by Dennis.  Motion Carried.

A motion was made to buy a new trailer and to spend up to $200.00 by Don and 2nd by Terry.  Motion carried.

Gary contacted the trustees when he came across the divided plates that we used at last years Chicken Feed.  At a very good price Gary received approval and bought enough plates for approximately 5 years.

A detailed report was given by Diane on the Kids Fishing Contest.  Final total shows a loss of $109.51.  It was noted in discussion that it really was a lousy, cold winter day and we ended up having about half as many people as previous years.  There also was no raffle.  With a different day we probably would have at least broken even.  Someone reminded us that the intent of the Kids Fishing Contest was not to make money, but to introduce the next generation to ice fishing.

The Stanley and Thorp newspapers both had nice articles in the papers that Diane had submitted.

Nominations for President and Vice President will be taken at the next meeting.  The election will be held at the July meeting.

The web site has been paid in full for last year and will be billed for this year in April.

SPECIAL ISSUES

John Schreiber is the new DNR official in our area.  John attended the meeting to introduce himself and let us know that he is here as a resource for us (can help with contest, information, etc.) and would also like to use us as a resource.  John’s contact information is as follows:  John E.

Diane had the latest figures for the aerator electricity cost.  As of Feb. we are already looking at $2,240.78 more than last year.

Gary will go to the CVORA meeting regarding funds.

Posters for the Chicken Feed were brought up.  The date is set for July 20th and it is the 33rd annual chicken feed.  Laurel made a motion that Mike design and get the poster ready to go.  Motion was 2nd by Jane.  Motion carried.

Dennis and Laurel will get the tickets ready to go for the chicken feed.  It was noted that it would help if all members would sell them.  The prizes will be the same.  Diane will call with the raffle #.

All the "chicken" aprons are done and the quilt is looking good.

Mike will get together with Jeff D.  regarding advice on the web site.

The next meeting will be held on Tuesday, May 13th  at the Colburn Town hall at 7:00 p.m.

OLBC 7/9/13 Meeting Minutes

The meeting was called to order by President Gary Fritz.

Officers present were: Pres. Gary Fritz, V.P. Mike Olin and Sec. Micki Hughes and Treasurer Diane Weggan.

Members present were:  Dennis and Laurel Angus, Herb and Shirley Jepson, Terry Hughes, John and Donna Lappley, Dan and Judy Liske, Don Weggen, Paula Brown, Jane Fritz and Don Amundson.  Guest present was Randy Dunkel.

Secretary’s report was read and corrected to read that the President and Vice President would not be nominated as they are voted in only on even years.  Herb made the motion to accept the minutes as corrected, Terry 2nd the motion.  Motion carried.

Randy Dunkel from the DNR introduced himself and gave a short introduction.  Randy may be contacted at 715-770-9670  or This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

NEW BUSINESS

Randy (DNR) introduced a new project that will be stocking up to 8000 5-7” walleye in Otter Lake.  The Club will no longer need to spend money on stocking walleye.  He then introduced the Loaner Life Preserver Program.  The goal is to have a life preserver (life jacket) Kiosk for kids at each boat landing.  Parents bringing their kids to the lake can borrow a life jacket and return it when they are done at the lake weather than deciding to go out on the lake without the proper preservers.

There are Federal dollars that would purchase the supplies for the Kiosk but not the upkeep or building of it.  Would the OLBC be willing to get them put together and put things out in the summer and check on it?  Would OLBC be willing to sponsor a Kiosk?  The intent is to start with the south boat landing.  The County owns the other landing and we would only need permission from the County to have Kiosk at the other landings.  Randy has the plans and pictures of what the kiosk would look like.  If we decide to do this he would send the sponsor information in to the state as they have someone contracted to take care of that part.

The biggest effort for the club would be to get the supplies for the kiosk out by Memorial Day and in after Labor Day.  It would also be necessary to bring the jackets in if a big storm was coming in.

Randy would see to a news release about the club sponsoring a kiosk when it goes up.  He would also go down to the landing and watch it or put a camera up if there was any vandalism.

Basically the cost is free to the Booster Club.  It would require the building of it and some TLC.  A decision needs to be made by August 13th.

Paula made a motion to go ahead with the Loaner Life Preserver Program at the south boat landing.  Motion 2nd by Don A.  Motion carried.

A building committee was formed with Herb heading it up. John, Don, Terry and Gary will be on the building committee.

Randy also gave us information on AIS (Aquatic Invasive Species).  The goal is to educate everyone who uses the lake to stop the transportation of invasive species into the lake.  He would appreciate it if we would let him know whenever we have a program coming up at a boat landing.  Because the chicken feed is coming up shortly, Randy will try to get someone there with educational materials.

Treasurer’s Report was read.  It looks like the Elec. Bill is going to be around $5000.00 as the aerators were left on longer this year.  Diane also received $40. for four new memberships.  Jane made a motion to accept the report as read, Paula 2nd, motion carried.

OLD BUSINESS      

The South Dock is in.  This dock does not need to be taken in the fall because it is a floating dock.  There were some constraints to the size of the dock by the County and DNR. 

Larry Ritzlinger e-mailed that chloride will be on the road and parking lot on the 19th.  Mike will contact the person who grades the road to see if it can be done the day before.

Mike is the only one that is currently taking care of the trash at the south boat landing.   He will be purchasing the bags.

Weather permitting we will be setting up for the dinner at the park on Saturday morning from 8:00-10:00.  Serving and food tables will be set up Sunday morning at 8:00.  The beer cooler will be there Saturday.  All coolers have a padlock on them.  The port-a-potty will also be brought down.  Discussion was also held on the charcoal pits and charcoal that was ordered.

Diane informed us as to the shoppers, papers and stations that she sent ads to.  Mike will email a poster to Moose Country.

Other discussion was held to finalize items for the Chicken Dinner.  Micki informed us that the vests are done for the road crew.

NEW BUSINESS

Nominations for Treasurer.  Herb nominated Diane.  Motion carried and unanimous vote.

Nominations for Secretary.  Laurel nominated Micki.  Motion carried and unanimous vote.

Discussion was held on cutting down the weeds at the south boat landing.  The weeds will be cut.

Discussion was held regarding the 50/50 raffled being longer in the future.  No decision made.

The next OLBC meeting will be at the Colburn Town hall at 7:00 p.m. on August 13th.

Meeting adjourned.  Respectfully submitted by Micki

End note.  Gary called to inform me that we forgot to nominate the member at large.  That nomination should have taken place with the treasurer and secretary.

Members present were:  Dennis and Laurel Angus, Herb and Shirley Jepson, Terry Hughes, John and Donna Lappley and Cheryl Olin .

Minutes and treasurer’s report will be read at the July meeting.

OLD BUSINESS

Herb heard from the county regarding the park pavilion.  Eighteen raccoon were found to be residing there.  They redid the soffits, however, there are no vents in any of them.  It was noted that vents are needed or the wood will rot.  We will be in contact.

The dock at the south landing is set to go in on the 17th of this month.  The dock  will extend into the water 25’ with a 24’ long T-dock on the end.

Don is willing to take the same office or another for Board member.  Nominations will be made at the July meeting.

Gary and Jane did an inventory of the trailer and discussion was held on what was needed to purchase.  The chicken and pickles have been ordered for the dinner.  Diane will get together with Jane to go over what we used last year and compare what is left in the trailer.  Jane and Shirley agreed to go shopping for the rest of the needed supplies.

Mike and Gary talked to the family that is renting the pavilion Saturday.  It is fine for us to set up Saturday morning for the dinner.  We will meet at 8a.m. and should be out  by 10:00-10:30.  We will have to meet early Sunday to put up the tables, wash and cover them.

The dust control for the dinner needs to be done through the county.  Don is in contact with Larry Ritzlinger.

We need to purchase heavy weight 55 gallon barrel size for the trash bins on the south landing.  We can use the dumpster on the east end of the Curve Inn if it is not full.  Otherwise the garbage will have to be taken down to the park.

NEW BUSINESS

Treasurer received an ok to pay the $600.00 Insurance bill.  It was also noted that we need to keep all ticket stubs because we are a non profit.

We will be using the 50/50 raffled tickets that were donated to us by the VFW.  It was decided that you needed to be present to win.

The fishing resolution went through and will be on the books next April for consideration.

Meeting adjourned.  Respectfully submitted by Micki

We have also heard from Larry Ritzlinger regarding the pavilion.  The raccoons are out and repairs are being made.  Larry will let us know if they need any help.

Herb asked about the pink ribbons on the public access land as they do not line up with the property boundaries.  Mike or Gary will make a call to check it out.

The dock at the south landing is not in as they could not move any heavy equipment in yet which they need for digging.  The culvert is getting replaced starting Thurs. a.m. with the road work.

The Sportsman’s club has been taking care of the trash at the south landing for the last three years.  They will no longer be doing this.  Discussion was held on the best way to handle the trash.  Some of our members are looking into a few different possibilities and will report back at the June meeting.

Fishing Proposal is at 10 Bluegills and 15 other pan fish for a 25 pan fish limit per day.  This 1st step passed 32 to 20.  However, the DNR is going to do a 3 phase study of the lake starting in the spring of 2014.

Phase 1 – Net the lake; recording species, length of fish and the # of species.

Phase 2 – Shock the entire lake over a period of time, recording as in phase 1.

Phase 3 – Creel count.  The DNR will be stopping people to ask what you caught;  species, number of fish, etc.

If the DNR find that the fish proposal is out of whack with their findings, they will change it.  We just want to be proactive for the good of the lake and the fish in it.  Fish Biologist Heath Beneke will be working with this.

Side note – the Sportsmen’s club will be doing a creel count this year.

Mike Olin showed us some letterhead paper he did with pictures on them.  It was decided to go with the picture of the south landing for a general letterhead.  Thank yous were sent out to businesses that donated to the Kids Fishing Contest with a picture of the kids from this years contest.  Dan Liske will look into an estimate for printing.

Terry asked about cost savings with the new 3 phase aerators.  It looks good, but we will not have the final figures until November.  If the cost go down that would be great with the long winter we had this year.

NEW BUSINESS

Set up for the chicken dinner.  The dates requested were Sunday and Monday instead of Saturday and Sunday.  Therefore, the pavilion got rented out for a family reunion on Saturday.  After discussion, it was decided to contact the family to see if they would mind if we had a few things set up Saturday morning before their reunion starts.  It will be an early Sunday morning for our set up.  We will meet Saturday at 8:00 a.m. for the partial set up if it’s ok with the family.

The class B retail license was acquired at the town hall meeting and it is good for one year.

Discussion was held on the purchase of chicken for the dinner.  Laurel mad a motion for Mike to check on the price of chicken from a couple of different places for 4-5# birds.  Dennis 2nd the motion and the motion carried.

Dinner prices were at $7.00 for half chicken and $5.00 for a quarter chicken in 2012.  After discussion was held Terry made a motion that we charge $7.50 for a half and stay of $5.00 for a quarter chicken.  Dan 2nd the motion and the motion carried.

It was also decided to purchase bigger, sturdier compartmentalized plates.

Jane and Gary will do an inventory of the trailer, then make a list for whatever else is needed.  Discussion followed on supplies needed for the dinner.

 OLD BUSINESS      

Gary informed the club that the Stanley Sportsman Club did not get the floating dock put in at the south boat landing due to some ramp issues.  The dock is now slated to be put in this spring.

Discussion was held on the vest for club workers.  There was some miscommunication on the vest purchase and it did not take place.  We are looking further into the purchase.  It was decided for club workers to use arm band (flagging tape) for the fishing contest with possible vest purchase before the Chicken Feed.

 County Land - The east side of the land has been taken care of for lake & fishing access. We are trying to get the total 80 acres transferred to the township & at that point we would be able to work on the east side. At the last County meeting they talked about a 5 step initiation process and a 5 step criteria.  Nothing was done at this time.  Gary stated that surrounding clubs are behind us for the land turn over.

 Diane stated that she sent a thank you card with a paid membership to Jim Isenburger for appreciation of cleaning the port-a-potty the last few years at no cost.

 NEW BUSINESS

Kids Ice Fishing Contest.  All kids will receive a free hot dog and a free hot chocolate as the club has made money the last few years on the contest and that was not our goal. Everything else will cost $.50 & everyone else will pay $.50 for all food & drink items. Due to the free hot dog and hot chocolate we won’t be giving out cookies this year.

Much discussion was held on who was going to get what done in preparation for the contest.  The buttons will be printed after the 15th and John, Gary and Butch will assemble them.  It was decided to wait and see if we need a fire for the contest – depending on the temperature.

 An oxygen reading was taken of the lake on Wed., Jan. 9th and levels are above normal.

 Dan brought up redoing our letter and listing for the contest. 

Mike and Gary talked about going door to door around the lake about the Booster club and also about getting sponsors on the web site.

Discussion was held about the pan fish and crappie kits that were purchased for the contest. 

We had a request for sending out a letter when membership is due and discussion about sending out a mailing.

Jeff suggested we look closer at corporation opportunities for the web site and establishing levels of partnership.

Judy suggested we also look more into free advertising that is available such as the Elec. Coop. magazine and others, planning ahead for the future – Chicken Feed.

 Motion to adjourn was made by Judy and 2nd by Jeff.  Motion carried.

 Gary informed the club that the Stanley Sportsmans Club (SSC) will be putting in a floating dock next to the south boat landing. This could happen yet this year. A concrete pad is needed down to the dock per the DNR. The dock will probably have 3 wheelchair spots and there will be railings all around it.

A group of club workers prepared the county land for shore fishing by brushing out some areas approved by the county. It was a good work day with much accomplished. There have been positive comments received already about how nice it looks. Wood chips will be used for path on the site. A check with Ericksen's True Value found that rental of a chipper for the brush would be $77 for a half day. Don moved that Gary set up another work day, gather a crew and rent the chipper for half of a day. Seconded by Herb. Motion carried.

 Gary relayed a suggestion from Butch Kuester  that we do something to show appreciation to Jim Isenberger for cleaning the port-a-potty for the past few years at no cost. Mike will talk to Diane about getting a thank you card and inserting a paid membership to the club for Jim.

 A resolution was created by Mike to lower the daily bag limit on bluegills and crappies. There was much discussion on the subject. A motion was made by Terry that the daily possession bag limit be 15 for pan fish and that Mike or Gary should contact clubs that have supported OLBC such as Stanley Rod and Gun, SSC, Thorp Sportsmans Club, Roosevelt Rod and Gun Club, Chequamegon Wildlife and Recreation Club & Taylor County Sportsman's Club for input. Seconded by Herb. Motion carried.

 Gary noted that he received a letter of resignation from Paula Brown as of Oct. 8, 2012.
