Limbo reported that we have a signed agreement with Mike Short of Apple Springs. Financing is with Black Hills Community Bank of Rapid City and the $240,000.00 start up loan will be signed for next week and the appraisal part will be done by the end of August and shortly after that the paper work will be done to finalize the rest of the loan. Dana will meet with Johner on Monday, July 20th to go through the plan for earth moving and to finalize their contract.

He wants Outka to oversee the seeding on the two greens and fairways and spray weeds. Dana had contacted Steve Keszler about helping on our course to free Gary up for the work needed on the expansion course. Outka reported that the main drive for the pumps is burned out.
