i recently attended my first get together of the local chapter and there was a long discussion on moving the assembly. there was discussion about Pokagon st. park and i brought up the idea of the city where i live as a possible site(river, college,camping,lodging). it was suggested that i look into it. i spent time getting local interest from the mayor's office, the convention and visitors bur., the college and the local river protection group. i then tried to contact some members about this. i was greatly dissapointed in my failure to get call backs from a number of members and only speaking to one boad member who only directed me to the site requirments on the website. makes one wonder if the average member is just not that important. i wonder if other members have also been ignored and perhaps found other places to send their dues. well i've given up on the idea. perhaps a few of us could start a separate canoe group in our local area.
