Magic Valley Bassmasters January 2008 Meeting

Scyler brought the meeting to order at 7:35.

The Banquet went very well, we had about 60 people attended. With the club paying half of the meal ticket, the raffle sales increase and we made $1,100.00.

The size of The Bass Federation is increasing with the announcement from B.A.S.S. stating they will no longer have a Jr. championship in junction with the Classic. This has no affect on the TBF's Jr. World Championship that is in junction with FLW's Championship, our kids will still be fishing with the Pro's.

The State Jr. Championship will be held Sunday June 15th at Milner. We should have about 12-14 kids coming from Northern Idaho, so we could use all the help we can get from all the clubs. If you can provide a boat and take a Jr. fishing let Scyler know or call Gary or Karen Keith at 208-785-6729.

Our March 15 tournament has been changed to March 22nd still at C.J. Strike.

The club reviewed that $5.00 of the $40.00 entry fee will go to the teams at the end of the year and the angler of the year can have either have a jacket made or receive $150.00 . We voted on and passed to have $300.00 split into $25.00 gift certificates, 6 series one rods and 1 banquet rod.

The club bought a new camera, ordered a new champ chef BBQ from Brad.

The club is discussing to possible change the location of the meetings, Pandora's (old muggers) would like us to have our meetings at there location. It will be voted on at February's meeting.

If anyone is wanting on the trailer the sponsorship is $200.00 plus lettering. We have 3-4 spots available.

Mason's Trophies sent us a letter about a small price increase in the plaques.

Don't forget that the club dues are due, $40.00 or $17.00 if you have paid Federation dues to another TBF club.

The club paid Kerry's dues in exchange for the new tires that he gave the club for the trailer.

The next tournament will be the Dave Withers Tournament February 23rd. This is a pot luck and a $10.00 donation to participate. Hamburger's and Hot Dogs will be provided.
