I wanted to inform everyone that I will not be
attending the November meeting. My company is
sending me toPortlandfor
the entire week. I did want to get the agenda out
for those who are attending and the few things that
are in need of discussion.
We have not had one of these in a few years. In
fact, the last one I remember is Mike Peruse from G.
Loomis about 4 years ago talking about his rods. We
need to do a better job at organizing these. If
anyone knows reps, WDFW officers, even employees of
stores that would like to promote their business,
give me a heads up and we can organize them coming
in for a meeting.
Tip and Tactics:
Joe is on.
Russ can report on if his comity has meet and what
their ideas are. We have not done an official
activity this year, and the report is due on the
It would be nice if Gerold and Ryan discussed their
win at the Club Fish Off at Lake Samamish. The club
finished second and grossed $350 for the clubs
general fund. Great job to all those that
participated! We were only about 1 fish away from
winning!!! Next year....
The annual banquet ison
11th at LakeChelan.
It looks like a good time, and all are welcome.
Food, trap shooting and a change of leadership will
highlight this event. I recommend that if you can
go, it should be well worth the drive and cost.
Dues are due! The state gets a kick back for every
club member paid before the end of the year. Plus,
it's a lot of work for Wayne and Kevin to get you in
the FLW system. Giving them adequate time is very
beneficial. Remember, they have lives too and can't
sit by waiting for you. (sorry, guilt trip.)
New amendment to be discussed and voted on. Please
consider the amendments ahead of time to shorten the
discussion to a reasonable time. The amendments are
2 separate issues and need to be voted on
#1 Omitting the wording of "Have attended at least
3/4 of the club meetings and 3/4 of the club
functions." to the requirements of being a club
officer. It is up to you to decide how involved you
think the leadership of the club should be.
#2 Adding rules that would only allow paid members
to be able to accumulate points and to add a $10
late fee to those who do not pay their dues by the
November club meeting. This will make it easier on
the club officers to process dues, and will also
give clear ruling on a possible issue.
constitution was written by the founding members of
the club and it should not be changed unless it is
necessary. But, some items may be outdated. Please
take your vote seriously.
Unfortunately, Mike Coffey, due to personal issues,
will not be able to participate in the club in
2012. There for, we get to, again, nominate and
vote in a new tournament director. If you feel that
you are going to attend a large portion of the
tournaments next year, and are competent enough to
push a button an a scale, you qualify. I will be as
much help as I can be. I will be happy to run the
opens if you are not comfortable with that and will
be available to help at most club tourneys. So,
don't be afraid!!!
I would also like to give a special thanks to Ryan
for his tips and tactics in the October meeting. I
don't ever remember a meeting where so many guys
volunteered so much fishing information. Great job
Everyone, this club is about fishing, fun, and
making friends. Even though this is a lot of stuff
to cover for the November meeting, lets try and get
through it as quickly as possible so everyone can
get back to those four things. Hopefully giving you
all an agenda will allow you to be prepared for the
meeting and speed up the business parts. If you
would like to discuss any of these issues with me
before the meeting, feel free to call, text or
e-mail. I will be happy to discuss it with you. I
would like to hear your thoughts and can hopefully
answer any questions.
