TCC Officers and Members of the Land Management Committee,
I am sending this out for your review, comments, and subsequently use by the
Secretary in his heads up message for the February Activity Weekend. The Kudos
for this announcement message are derived from my notes and recollections made
during my visits to the landsite. Since you may have been at the
Landsite at times when I was not present please add items not covered herein.
The purpose of the "Other Landsite Maintenance, Repairs,
Replacements, and Minor Improvements," segment is to remind members about
the many small things, that they might not otherwise have occasion to think
about, that are accomplished on their behalf just to keep the Landsite usable
for them and their clubs. Feel free to add your own lists. Please
directly e-mail me at email@example.com any
additions, corrections, or changes that may have escaped my attention, including
any of my club/independent affiliation annotations missing or in error.
