Club President Tim Webb presented brief highlights of the Club’s board of directors meeting in Maine on June 20, 2013
Probably the biggest news was that ownership of the Jakk Longacre Memorial on Russell Mountain on the approach to Taum Sauk in Missouri has changed. Ownership has now changed to the man who bought club founder Jakk’s property but the club is given a perpetual easement to the property which is also now officially on the Ozark Mountain Trail. The transfer eliminates the need for the club to pay insurance on the property but still keeps it accessible to the club.
Other items highlighted by Tim were donations for charitable stones on South Carolina and Iowa.
The meeting was nearly 3 hours long and included a Skype component with Eric Lichtenstein in Switzerland.
