Meeting gaveled to order by Wayne Eichelkraut at 6:32 p.m.
Wayne asked for a moment of silence for Betty Lebeau’s mom.
Wayne Eichelkraut, advised member’s cameras are monitoring our behavior in regards to wearing masks in our club. They were installed last week by the state, and our behavior in regards to Covid-19 restrictions will be watched, and we will be fined for noncompliance and could face loss of revenue from machines or loss of club privileges.
This is non debatable and Wayne asks to adhere to IDPH guidelines, wear a mask, when entering the club and around the camera areas.
Jim Shanley asked,” Do we have to wear the masks while drinking at bar or tables”, Wayne replied no, but adhere to six feet social distancing and wearing masks upon entering the club and while at gaming devices.

It may also at this time be worth mentioning thank you to all that have helped with the tree removal on the south end of our property. We know a lot of you had your own property damaged, but thanks to you the good neighbor policy in regards to our surrounding properties and keeping peace with them is still in effect.

Under old Business: Denny Gray asked,” How does one get a dock before they are actually a member.”
“Why do we have bylaws if we are not going to follow them”?
Wayne stated he questioned that before it is not right, and according to bylaws not to happen. But it has been done in the past, unfortunately no one from Lagoon committee is on grounds to explain this. This looks like it will be addressed in the future.
