    Old Business: The Moya G has been okayed for use by the club again. Please remember if you dig a hole please fill it up before you leave. Please use the correct filler for the holes: if you remove dirt replace with dirt. If we don’t take care and reclaim our dig sites, that the owners have been nice enough to allow the club to use, we could lose our privileges to those claims.
