3. Making the jamboree a club tournament and awarding points towards angler of the year.
We concluded the meeting at 8:45 with the raffle.

Doug Jorgensen later sent in the exact wording for the proposed changes
Add to tournament rules:
At least two club tournaments per year will be a draw tournament. The draw tournament(s) will be a team format. Both anglers will fish as a team for a total of one five fish limit. The team will share the weight and tournament points (i.e. first place will award both anglers 50 points). All club members must enter the draw that will take place at the club meeting prior to the tournament if they want to fish. If you cannot attend the club meeting, notification that you intend to fish as a boater or non-boater must be made to a member who will be attending the club meeting. If you fail to enter the draw, you will not be allowed to fish in a team format. You may fish solo. If you enter the draw and a club member is not selected to fish with you, you may pick a person of your choice to fish with you (not a club member) in a team format. You may fish with a family member in a team format during any draw tournament.
Amendment to Club Awards:
Add an award for Rookie of the Year
The Rookie of the Year will be awarded to a club member who fishes a minimum of 5 tournaments and accumulates highest 5 tournament points. The club member must have never fished 5 tournaments in any prior year. If no members are eligible, then no award will be made. All ties will be decided as per club tournament rules.
 Constitutional Amendment:
The Washington Bass Federation Jamboree be a club tournament. Club standings for the event will determine points.
