Access by: Jim Grady, President:
Jim met with Glenn (park manager Rowena) about the proposed improvements. At this point they will not allow any improvements to Rowena. It’s a nature preserve and tribal land. Hopefully in the future we can do some improvements but at this point we can’t add gravel or move rocks.
Kiters are now allowed to pump and dry their kites on the east side of the grass all year long. This is a great accomplishment for the CGKA. Kiters can still launch and land from Oct 1st – April 30th.
Suggestion made to do a party to educate kiters on the new rules. The party will be discussed at the next meeting.
Stevenson Update by: Mark Barnes:
The cleanup is going to be on April 25th. The dam will lower the water level for us on that day.
The Port recently purchased the lot next to Bob’s beach. Any new improvements should be multisport improved.
The Breakwater broke and will no longer be there (by the dock).
Need to do a sandbar clean up. Suggestion to do the clean up the same weekend as the Stevenson one, motion denied. Board agrees to do a Sandbar clean up but wait until May after spring melt has cleared the Sandbar.
CGKA floating dock at the Hook has been put on hold. The Port would like more information about the dock (diagrams, materials, ect). In the mean time the Port will improve the ramps at the hook. Forrest is working with the Port to get the ramps widened so they will be easier to launch/land from for kiters.
Need an organizer. Nicole and Steve will take the lead on the Blowout.
