Program Activity:  There was no program activity.

Tips, Tactics and Techniques:  
Shawn McDaniel talked about keeping up on the maintenance on your outboards and the additives that you should be putting in your gas every time you add fresh gas.  He likes to use Seafoam and Quicklean.  He also puts the new Stabile ethanol formula in if the boat is going to be sitting for longer then a month. This helps stabilize the octane level and rid of any moisture.  Mark Mrzena is on for November.

Old Business: 
The Banquet is the 3rd week of January at the Milton Tavern make sure to be at next meeting to vote on the food and maybe buy some tickets.  Tom will be sending the Notebook that was originally created on how to run our money tournaments to Doug Jorgensen.   It contains the list of duties and responsibilities to successfully run a tournament.  Joe Scheperle will be getting scales from Larry so we can figure out this issue also.  If you are still interested in a Jersey they are available.  Contact Tom via email if you have a question.

New Business:  
We would like to see more club participation at our club meetings.  Trophies for next year will be the same and ordered by Tom Melowitz and sent to Kenny G's.  Tom is also looking for the rods and Hula Hoops that we use for the kids casting at the Jamboree.  They are missing from the 2010 Jamboree.  Anyone knowing their whereabouts should contact Tom.  New officers for 2011 were elected:
