We will have a BBQ & Minicassia Bassers will be cooking the main course and every one should bring a side dish, chips or dessert to make a great potluck on Saturday night. This should be a great event and we look forward to all the Fish Tales that seem to have brewed over the long winter.

We need to have proof of insurance on all boaters prior to all tournaments.

The Memorial Open was discussed on going to the Burley Golf Course or back to the Riverside and after some discussion it was voted on going back to the Riverside with maybe allowing a few boats to launch from the K-Ramp. We also discussed a big raffle item for the open, we are looking for some ideas that will make it possible to sell a lot of raffle tickets.

It was voted on to change the meeting from 7:00 pm To 7:30 pm.

Scyler handed out the Invoices for the Trailer to members that were present and he will mail or deliver the remainder of the Invoices.
