4. Commissioners Report; Paul Gettelman-- Good results on Tern rafts as noted in newsletter. A special thanks to Randy Schmidt and Rich Pergande for their help with the tern rafts and the marker buoys. But have some bad issues happening on lake over the past couple of years. As noted last year the channel buoys have been damaged by people running over them and breaking the lights off. Some folks now following the Slow-No Wake signs in the River. Someone stole the slow now wake sign at the hatchery. Someone vandalized the fyke nets that the DNR gave us to use. This may cause them to stop letting us use them or even not issue a hatchery permit.
