with several other events at or near the same time and
making the Sammamish tournament a two day club only
Anthony Douglas volunteered to spearhead the gathering
of sponsors for the fall open.
Tips & Tactics:
Ty Watterson finally arrived (better late than never) Ty reminded us of
the importance of being comfortable while on the water
and dressing properly for conditions. He also reminded
us of the importance of wearing your PFD. Ty spoke about
the importance of having confidence and fishing what you
have confidence in not necessarily what others are
fishing. Ty also reminded us to keep things simple.
nominated Shawn McDaniel for the next tips & Tactics
Ty had nothing to report. Charity mentioned that the
federation was looking at using mesh weigh in bags and
an opportunity for the club to purchase them as part of
our conservation requirement.
reminded those who use auto inflating PFD’s to check
their expiration dates.
Charity advised that a bylaw committee was formed to review the
federation bylaws and update them as necessary.
Doug brought up the idea that was mentioned in past
meetings about having a big bass pot for the season.
Everyone who wanted could pay into the pot and whoever
catches the largest bass in a club tournament for the
year wins the pot.
reminded everyone that the banquet is this sat. at The
Ram at 6pm. This is a buffet style dinner that will cost
about $10 a person.
Charity Howe was voted in as a full club member.
Bass Pro Shop Spring Classic will be Feb. 13th-14th
there were several volunteers to man a booth at the Bass
Pro shop to promote the sport and recruit new members.
(I had to respectfully decline the offer as I will be
fishing Lake Toho in sunny Florida at that time.)
meeting was adjourned at 8:35 the meeting had to be
immediately called back to order because the meeting min
from Nov. had not yet been accepted. Doug made the
motion that the min. be accepted as posted on the web
site. The vote did not pass for some dumb reason several
members actually wanted the min. read aloud to them.
Keith read the min out loud and they were accepted by
the body as they realized the error of their ways.
(Someone may have attempted to make a motion that they
never be read out loud again)
meeting was then adjourned for real at 8:40
raffle made $125 that Hoss will be using for something
at the banquet.
