11:00AM           Meeting with America True

Dan Leininger of America’s True attended meeting to discuss the Free Boating Day in India Basin. Ted Choi can only offer kayaks on 9/22, which is not good for everyone else. 10/13/12 is agreed upon date. JF suggests that Dan contact 2 groups: BASK (Bay Area Sea Kayakers) & Beau ___ . JF also suggested contacting BlueGreenway & SFPark & Rec for their support, & possible use of their kayaks. MH said he & Kristine Enea will each lend 2 kayaks. America’s True has insurance coverage for the event (it is a 501(c)(3)). JF suggests Dan reach out to Hunters Point Family Foundation to spread word to their clients – tons of kids who would enjoy the boating. Invite all partners to meeting @ 11AM, Sept. 8th (after regular Board meeting), and then meet at first Saturday in October to finalize plans.
