Fall 2011 DIAMOND NEWS
From the board of directors:
The board of directors have been meeting the fourth Wednesday of every month. Several topics have discussed through out the summer.
There has been a porcupine problem on Prospect. The porcupines have nested in the big pile of brush in great amount of numbers and are now doing damage to the camps in the area. The members on the road have asked the Club to have someone come in and bury iit or haul it off to a different location. The board has asked John Doyle to give them an estimate on doing the job.
Guest fees going into a deer management system had been discussed some with further discussion to go on at the annual meeting.
Many other topics have been discussed as well. The board encourages everyone to come to the annual meeting.
The annual duck race was a huge success again this year! This was the fifth year for the duck race. The organizers have decided to give out a prize to the person that has the duck that crosses the finish line in place of the same year as the event. This year Richard Todd’s duck came in 5th so he was awarded that prize. The 1st place winner was Bill Jackson, 2nd winner was Blake Young and 3rd was Gracie Todd. Congrats to all and thank you to the Daniels family for making this such a fun event every year!
THe annual fishing derby was great fun for all also!!! Every participant won some sort of prize. The biggest prize going to Blake Young! Two other prizes were awarded to Katie Hauf and Rachel Couglar. Thanks to the Couglars for chairing this great event once again!

Don Baker has been working on getting the APA to amend our permit to include septic systems. He has made great progress so far. He will need to know who is interested in putting one in. You have to be totally sure that you want to do this before signing up. There will be only a limited amount of permits allowed at this time. If you get on the “list” you will only have a certain time frame to put this system in. So, Don is asking that you be absolutely sure before putting yourself on the list! Don has further information on the details of this permit. He will be discussing this at the meeting.
