Committee Reports: Government Affairs:-Keith Blair reported that information
pertaining to the Jack Marrow Alternatives will be posted on the website,
BLM Claims:- No new ones are on file at present. Randy reported that
he has done the paperwork on the claims he filed for, but there were 2

take care of clearing up the matter with the BLM. Any new claims that need
to be filed will be taken care of when Pat is at the meeting as she is
