Discussed NPS budget being mostly spent at North end. John Bundy mentioned to Tom Newman that he considers anything south of Day Board 9 as South end. Our board members assumed South end was South of Devils canyon or at the most South of Barry's.
FOBHL needs to map out where we would like Boat mooring buoys (for boaters to use for day or overnight stay) and give to NPS for approval, and then FOBHL will oversee installation.
Locations discussed: Contact a board member if you would like to suggest other locations.

2 in Crooked Creek bay,
1 @ cliffs going into Crooked Creek,
1 in South Narrows
1 at Abercrombie
2 along red cliffs
2 in South Lake.
6 buoys are currently available from BICA, Ken will find out how much these cost for FOBHL to consider buying more.
Joe will bring a map to next meeting so we can pin point exact locations.
NPS mentioned to Lynn or Jerry the need for some maps, they need to gather more info before proceeding. Ken will ask Lynn and Jerry to gather more info for the May board meeting.
Discussed need for more young Lovell board members, We all need to keep eyes open for recruits.
Discussed ideas on how to assist Mark Garrison with boat rental services. Currently we do not have enough info to make any decisions, but board is open to assisting if it makes sense.
Ken will gather more details for next meeting.
Next meeting should be in Powell, May 10th, 6:30pm at PV Chamber building.
