COMMENTS FROM THE FLOOR

Phil Stopke, lot#1320 stated that the C&Rís seem to be slanted towards the homeowners instead of campers. He cited the homeowners being able to leave their trailers on their lots all year, having sheds and being able to have contiguous lots. All these items are spelled out in the C&Rís. Ann Hobart asked him to submit his grievances in writing to her C&R renewal committee and the committee will look into it.

Don Brabant, lot#1353, feels that enlarging the campground and storage area is one our most important items.
