          Club Elections

Club officer elections were held at the September club meeting. The new officers take office at the October club meeting.   The new officers are:
President - Doug Jorgensen, Treasurer - Ken Ganancial, Tournament Director - Franco Stone,
Secretary - Gerald Dunn

Chuck Warner will be the new Federation Rep!  As with any new administration it will take some time to get into the swing of things.  Help your new officers by supporting them and helping out at the club meetings.
  Last Newsletter
With  plans to spend November through April in Texas this year I decided that 72 Newsletters and 7 years as club president were quite enough.  I only hope that club members give Doug Jorgensen, our new president, the same support and respect that I received while serving as president.  I'm sure that Doug will provide the leadership and direction to continue to make the Hawg Hunters the best club in the state. 

   2001 Mary Bridge Pledge

A 2001 Mary Bridge Donation Solicitation letter is available on the club Website. Members should be working on getting pledges for Mary Bridge since the tournament is only a short month away.

  Member of the Year
 Congratulations to Ken Ganancial and Eric Woods who tied for Member of the Year.

   Vantage Results

The September 15 and 16 club tournament at Vantage saw 21 anglers fishing with surprisingly wind free conditions and  temperatures in the high 80's and low 90's.  17 of 21 anglers weighed fish.  Congratulations to Kevin Foote for his first club tournament win.  Tom Melowitz was second and Art Soto was third.  Joe Perrin had big fish with a 3.56 pound smallie but since he failed to get into the big fish pot  Kevin won the big fish pot.  Nice going Joe!  When you see Joe tell him - Nice Going!  Full tournament results are on the club's Web Site

Lake Washington 

The next club tournament is on the Lake Washington on October 21st.   This will be an important tournament for club members vying to fish on the 2002 state team.  Non boaters should be working on pairing up with boaters.

Most Improved

Joe Perrin  is leading the most Most Improved for 2001 with 19 points.  Several members are within striking distance!  

     Mickelsen Open

Kevin Foote is looking for volunteers who will not be fishing the tournament to work the Mickelsen Open on October 20th at Lake Washington.  Please see Kevin at the October club meeting if you can help out.  Six or more volunteers are needed.

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

         Club Web Site

We received an email from GeoCities ( Yahoo) indicating that our Web Site  had exceeded the limit of 3 Gigabytes of data transfer per month.  Actually that's a little over 4 megabytes during a one hour period.  They will begin enforcing this restriction so we will probably have to buy additional data transfer capacity or have the Web Site shut down when we exceed the existing capacity.  The Web Site is very popular and has been receiving a great deal of traffic! 

 Banks Lake  Federation  Qualifier

The September 22/23 Banks Lake Qualifier saw outstanding eastern Washing weather with sunny skies and temperatures in the 80's and very little wind!  The club was in second place after day 1 but slipped to fourth place after day 2.  Several members had limits on day 1 but only Franco Stone ( 8th place ) finished in the top 25.  Franco finished 9th overall in the state and will be going to the California Delta next year to represent Washington.  This will be Franco's 9th time on the state team.  The club finished 4th in the qualifier series for the year!  Congratulations to the members of the state team.
