Kenn Brainerd has resigned as the club Secretary because he frequently works until 6:30 pm on week nights and also on Saturdays.  Kenn has served as the club Secretary for the past several years.  The next time you see Kenn tell him thanks for his efforts over the past several years.
Steve Holets has resigned as the club Federation representative.  Steve has done a great job as club rep over the past several years.  When you see Steve tell him thanks.  Any member interested in serving as the Federation representation should make that known at the September club meeting.

    Silver Lake Results

The August 11 Silver Lake club tournament saw 23 anglers fishing.  7 anglers weighed fish.  A 12 inch minimum was used rather than the 14 inch lake minimum size.  11 Fish were weighed, of which 4 were between 12 and 14 inches.  The contest banners allowed three anglers to weigh fish that  they would otherwise not have been able to weigh.  Congratulations to Ken Ganancial for 1st place, Art Soto for 2nd place, Kevin Foote for 3rd place and Tom Melowitz for big fish at 3.85 pounds.  See the Web Site for the full results. The grass carp abounded on the lake.  There appears to be few weeds left on the lake with the exception of pads.  Based upon the post tournament conversations there appears to be little sentiment for returning to Silver in the next several years.

Vantage Tournament

The next club tournament is on the Columbia River at Vantage on September 15 and 16.  We will be launching from the state park just south of I 90.  Non boaters should be working on pairing up with boaters.

            Club Dues

Just a reminder!  The club constitution states that club Dues of $56 are payable by the October club meeting.

       Club Calendar

There is a club calendar showing club, ABA, Federation and other activities of importance to the club now on the club Website. If you would like to add something send it to Tom.

A 2001 Mary Bridge Donation Solicitation letter is available on the club Website.
