  Boardman Results

The September 14/15 Federation Qualifier out of Boardman, Oregon saw good weather for 2 days.  The tournament was won by David Kromm with over 30 pounds for the 2 days.  While no club member finished in the top 25 the club finished just out of the money in 4th place and 7th place for the year.  Paul Jones finished 21st for the year. Congratulations to the 2002 state team!

    Lake Washington
 We had 23 club members fish the 8/10 Lake Washington club tournament.  The tournament was originally scheduled for a night tournament but moved to normal hours for safety considerations.  Congratulations to A.J. Juhl for his first club tournament win.  Joe Scheperle was second with the only 5 fish limit and Ken Ganancial had big fish and third place.  Ken's big fish was 4.61 pounds and now stands as the big fish for the year.  Complete results are on the Web.
