Minutes for the meeting are below.

Discussion- where is the group going 

The FOG website will transition to this blog during the next year. Registry functions will be updated and posted annually.

How to communicate, web or blog.  Communication with group or how to share with other owners, what is going to work the best for our needs.

My plan is to post on Yahoo Fisherowners and Facebook FOG NorthAmerica whenever a new  update to the blog is created.

Cruising with other Fishers, announcements, sail plans and invites via the web or blog?

I am hoping to announce any  Fisher Flotilla's as they are being planned. If you are planning a trip with your boat and would like to go with a great group of Fishers let me know and I will post it for the group to possibly join up.

Acknowledge regrets from members not attending:  Dave and Irene, Kate and Claude, George and Mary Lou

Discussion - Money? Charge for membership?

There are currently no plans to implement a dues or membership charge.

Burgee? New design? Other logo items, hats, pillows, etc.

Even though we will not be charging a fee it would be pretty neat if we had burgees to fly while we are on the water. There will be a small up charge to help pay for the set up of burgees, hats, shirts and pillows.

Recommendation; interesting Fisher journey, “Following Farley”

There is a great video series  on You Tube. Please check out his work here
