Dick has staff lined up for the boat/launch patrol, they will work on a rotating schedule. Discussion took place on how the hours should be structured.
Dennis has not set a date to meet with the town to discuss the application of weed treatment. The treatment will take place in the spring although the exact date is not yet known. The RLA board still plans on being present to observe the application of the treatment.
Dennis did check on the registration for the RLA boat and found the boat may not need to be registered because it is part of a municipality. Dennis will check with the town to see if the trailer and boat to in fact need to be registered.
The board will look into getting the boat ready for the season, the bottom of the boat may need to be painted.
Rob Recor gave an overview of the safe boating course. The instructor was fantastic, there was a small turnout and a donation of $94 was given to the RLWSA for the use of the clubhouse.

RLA would like to put up cautionary buoys for the sand bars within the lake. Dick is storing donated buoys in case they are needed for the season.
The rowers have started their season, there are different colleges who utilize the lake for rowing. The Connecticut Federation of Lakes (CFL) conference is April 29th.
The board received a letter from the Conservation Committee asking for a watershed study test to be done before more treatment is applied to the lake. Dennis will draft a response letter for the board to review at the next meeting.
Dennis will see if the Conservation Committee would be interested in sponsoring a soil testing for the
spring of 2018 for homeowners on and near the lake. It may be a great way to bring awareness to the Roger’s lake communities.
