County Liaison Report from Al Kaltenberg –Contracts from Randolph are still missing. We need to try to get them going with this. They are currently not insured as of the meeting. Maintenance contracts were handed out to those clubs with members present. Al has copies of the scholarships applications for anyone who needed or wanted them. Drew from Columbia County Tourism is planning to attend the January meeting to discuss any help he can give us. It was requested to add him to the email list for the meeting minutes. As for supplemental we are at 50% of what we applied for but there is still a chance we may not get any. Nothing else to report from Al.
