Club is considering joining the Silver lake Carp
Kill Off event hosted by the WDFW in attempt to
remove the over abundant carp population maintained
in the lake. The removal of the excess carp should
restore balance to the lake's natural ecosystem and
encourage the reintroduction of native aquatic plant
species in the lake.
report: Thank you
Joe Scheperle for helping run the open and setting
everything up. Sat only had 9 boats and for the club
to continue hosting this event on sammamish we need
to step up out game as the low turn out actually
cost the club money. Jaymee gave a recap of
the sammamish tournament standings.
Tim Griswold suggested the club hold a first aid/CPR
class at one of the meetings to educate the club and
potentially save someone's life.
Dez gave a well presented federation report to the
club after attending the state meeting. Thank you
Dez! here are some of the bullet points of Dez's
report. State qualifier for lake Sammamish has been
moved to Lake Washington (same dates). the
federation will be giving away prizes of $700 and
$300 to randomly drawn participants of all 3
qualifier events. Long Lake qualifier campsite has
been moved to 9 mile park on the South-East corner
of the lake. Future state team members will have to
participate in (2) TBF events as per the sponsorship
contract requirments (1) of these events is to be a
youth related event (for example cast for kids) the
2nd event can be the Federation annual banquet.
is considering changing the format of the qualifiers
next year to a Boater Vs Boater field and a
Co-angler Vs Co-angler field.
New Business: at the
last club tournament a boat number got skipped at
blast off. Some new members did not know about the
club's options pots. As a club we have to work on
communication to prevent this from happening again.
The Hawg Hunters
are hosting the federation Banquet this year!!!
Bob Stiener is checking the availability of
clearwater casino as a venue for this event. The
banquet is to be held on
Nov 14th. We need volunteers to help organize
this. Also our club will be running the cast for
kids event at the Jamboree on Banks lake volunteers
Other: Puyallup Hawg
Hunters have now sent 4 members to the TBF nationals
way to go!
