Minutes and Tres. Report were read and approved.  October minutes were taken by Chris Crouch.

Old Business –Gold Show – The Alaska Frontier Trappers Association has cancelled their June show.  Earl Bragg returned our deposit.  Lack of participation by members caused the cancellation.  Linda Henderson suggested the Crow Creek Mine.  Bill will contact the mine owners.
