Congratulations to the winners at the Owyhee tournament and thank you to Norco and Extreme Motor Sports for sponsoring this tournament.

Scyler sent off the permit for the Lake Walcott July 19th tournament and it was approved. The State Park fee is $4.00 unless you have a season pass.

The Federation board members are changing the State Team Code of Conduct to try to encourage the state team members to fish as a team first and individual second. The Federation Banquet will be held November 21st at the Hampton Inn in Boise. The tickets are $100.00 per couple this includes 1 TBF state and national membership paid, raffle tickets and 2 meals. The menu will be chicken or prime rib. The state is selling small TBF Idaho boat/window stickers. The club voted on and passed to buy the stickers and each paid member will receive one. If you would like more than 1, the price is a $1.00 per sticker.

Our August tournament will be at Massacre Rocks on the 29th and 30th. The club voted on and passed to have a 2 day combined weight with a 1 pay of $45.00. You can buy your invasive species sticker at the State Park booth if you have not purchased one yet.

The club was asked our opinion on changing the King Of the Water Tournament from Milner and Salmon Dam to just to Salmon Dam, the club voted on and passed to keep the tournament in the original format.

For the 4th of July Parade, the club voted on and passed that we would NOT buy candy. Thanks to the members and their families that came out and helped with the parade, it went very well and was enjoyable this year. A BIG thank you to Dale and Cheryl for hosting a great bbq and social event.

The club voted in Ethan Compton, Brents' 16 yr old son. Ian, Brents' youngest son will be fishing in the Jr. club. We also have a new Jr. member, Katie Fleming, Tom and Heathers' daughter. We look forward to seeing the junior members fish with us.
