Darrin Hines of the Viking Canoe Canoe Club, Jay Thomas of the Bardstown Boaters, Dave Stawicki of Elkhorn Paddlers, Zina Merkin of the EAMG and Kevin Colburn and Mark Singleton of American Whitewater held a meeting last night to discuss the Elkhorn Acres. A representative from the BWA was not present.
Addressed in the conference call were the concerns listed in David Quarel’s letter and immediate actions that could be taken in response including keeping a porta john at the property and reporting any commercial or other unapproved activity.
The main focus was AW’s (landowner’s) request to develop a local governing council for the property so-to-speak consisting of the parties participating in the conference call to act on AW’s guidelines.
Everyone agreed that each club could provide one or two individuals to commit to participating in this council. As planned for the call nothing was written in stone and all were asked to return to each club or organization and get a consensus and a round of opinions on how this should be handled.
Each were asked to follow up with an email to spell out their club’s intentions and any concerns or opinions. There will also be a follow up conference call to discuss, date and time to be determined. The same personnel will be on this call.
A request was made to start a thread on AW’s forum for open discussion on the matter and when it is up all can comment on it rather than on several different club forums.
