 President's Message
December 2011


Dear Club Members,
 I have a few new bits of news to share.  
First, Ryan has done a great job of setting up a seminar for us at Sportsman's Warehouse on south hill.  We are scheduled to do this on January 14, from 1:00 to 3:00 pm.  This is the same day as our banquet, so it should be a fun day of talking about fishing and hanging out with the guys.  If all goes well, we may be able to do them seasonally.  This is a huge opportunity for our club to get our name out to new potential members!  If there is a topic that you would like to cover, start thinking it up.  Anyone is allowed to speak.  Just be prepared.  If you would like to participate, but not as a speaker, you are welcome to talk to customers about our club and help them pick out tackle.  This could work into a great sponsor for us and a great relationship.  GREAT JOB RYAN!!!
Due to personal reasons, Ron Ryan will not be able to participate in the club for a while.  From what
 I understand, Ryan Gates is going to take on some of the responsibilities as sponsor director, but this isn't official yet.  If you would like to help out with sponsor director, speak up.  It can be a lot of work, but it is very rewarding for the club and on a personal level.  You will learn a lot.  I am happy to aid you in tactics on getting products as well.  

Tournament Director is still an open position in the club.  This is one of the most important
positions and needs to be filled.  Can someone please step up and take it on?  Again, you will have help!

If you have items that you can donate for the raffle, it is in need!  Get them to Tim at the next meeting.  The raffle is an important and fun part of our club meetings.  It helps generate income for our clubs general fund.  
Congrats to Russ Baker on taking over as WSBF President!!!  New leadership has been needed, and hopefully Russ can get participation back to where it used to be.  Also, Gerald Dunn was
elected as the new secretary/treasurer.  There should be a lot of information from Garald at the next meeting regarding WSBF.  

For those of you that finished in the top 10 in points this year, start thinking about fishing the state qualifiers.  It is a huge opportunity for you to meet new people and possibly fish the most important tournaments of your life.  The club will need to select a state team in a future meeting.  The
schedule is out, the qualifiers will be held  
April 28th on Washington, June 30th at Tri-Cities, and August 25th on Moses.
