Following our potluck dinner, the business meeting was called to order at 7:30 p.m. by President Randy Morris.   The minutes of the previous meeting were read and approved and the treasurer’s report was given. 

Old business:  We discussed the “Release of Responsibility” forms.  These should be adequately written with emergency contact numbers.  We decided to keep a central file of the hike sign in forms.  Hike leaders please send hike sign in sheets to Jane for filing.  Screening hikers was also emphasized.  Hike rating was discussed with emphasis on length of hike and elevation gain which should be stated in hike descriptions.  

At the request of Carol & Carroll Guhne, Jane brought a signup sheet for the Bartram Trail Hiking/Cabin Trip which is April 4 & 5th.  Anyone interested in going needs to contact Carol and Carroll (***left out on purpose***) before March 5 for cabin reservations.   

New Business:  The Annual Joint Meeting will be April 10th at Wesley Memorial United Methodist Church on Ohio Avenue in Etowah.  James Anderson will be the guest speaker and will be discussing his visit to Mount Kilimanjaro.  The Hiwassee Club will furnish plates, cups, and napkins.  Silverware will be furnished by the church.  The Cherokee Club will furnish drinks and ice. Bring potluck items for the meal.  Jane Bohannon brought brochures to promote The Women in the Outdoors Events March 8 at the Hiwassee Wildlife Refuge at Birchwood.  For additional information call Jane at ***left out on purpose***.
