Floaters Guide: Linda reported for David Squires that the map for Miles City is in the final edit and should be at the printer by Oct and the money is there to print it.

They are working on the other 2 guides and hopes to have them finished and at the final stage by Jan. Linda asked if Glendive wanted to go together with Miles City and Sidney to purchase 50 of the floaters guides, of which there are 3 so far. We can purchase them in 50 pieces for $2.40 each, then sell them for $4. Glendive agreed and Linda will contact the BLM office and get them ordered. For the Sidney (or the last floaters guide) Bec Kalliveg is doing the history of the Sidney area and Linda Conradsen is allowing her picture of the bear encounter to be used on the brochure.

River Access Brochure: Linda and Kathy from FWP have not been able to get together yet but will do that very soon. They have a meeting set for Fri, Sept 16th to go over and make sure that the hazards are on there (Intake diversion dam & Buffalo Rapids at Terry).

Marcy checked with NPS to see what we need to do to use this grant and we just need to request the funds when we are ready.

Upcoming Events: Linda went over what Miles City is thinking about. On one day of our five days as hosts. We plan to have a muzzle loader shoot sponsored by the Muzzle Loader Assoc and they will handle the shoot. Another day have a black powder shoot and have the Assoc put that on also. Then another day have a bow & arrow shoot and have that assoc put on that event also. Discussions are going on with FWP to have the shoot located at Pirogue Island which is historic by itself.

To finish out the event there are plans under way to have a Grand Ball. You have a cuer who tells you the steps you are to take while dancing. There are lessons given the day before and you must dress is period costume which we plan to have about a 50-year time span. Then they charge $5 for attendees who want to watch, $15 a person for dancers and $5 for lessons the day before. She also had period costumes that you can rent. We are still working on the details.
