Magic Valley Bassmasters June 2009 Meeting

Scyler open the meeting at 7:00.

Thanks to everyone that helped out with the OPEN tournament. After all the bills were paid out, we were able to net $1,300.00. The raffle made $875.00, 1st boat out raffle $300.00 and late entry fee's $150.00. Thanks again goes out to Steve and Kevin for the lights, we received allot of great comments. The weigh-in went very smooth and the tagging of the fish went off with out any problems. They tagged over 200 bass. Thanks to Dave Verburg for jumping in and helping Scyler and the Fish and Game out.

The Federation meeting news; John Lancaster will be going to the Jr. Championship tournament at Coeur D'Alene in Northern Idaho, the club voted on and passed to give John $100.00 to help out with his traveling expenses. The next Federation meeting will be held at Idaho Joes on Thursday June 18th, starting at 7:00. Everyone is welcome.

We have 1 spot on the front of the trailer for $200.00 and 2 spots on the side for $200.00. Rocky paid $60.00 to have his logo put on the trailer and will clean and detail the trailer when needed for parades and shows. The club logo is bleeding and smearing when it is wiped, so the club voted on and passed to have a new logo put on and use the logo from Snow Bowl Sweatshirts.

Our next tournament will be at Owyhee June 20th and 21st, a 2 day combined weight. The entry fee will be $45.00 per angler, the extra $5.00 will go towards paying big fish each day. We are sharing the permit with the Idaho Bass Hunters, they are pulling their trailer and hosting a taco dinner; please bring a side dish, dessert, etc. Just a reminder that there is no store at Indian Creek.

For anyone that is going to help out at the CAST event this year don't forget about the off-limits for that Saturday July 18th since we will be having a club tournament the 19th.

If anyone is needing an entry form or more information on the North American Angler Open tournament June 29th at Brownlee; contact Victor at 280-0290. This Tournament is sponsored by Jim Wells from Fruitland.

Scyler informed us that Jerome Country Club has changed hands and he is not sure if we will be able to have to banquet at this location, he will find out more information. And Steve will check with Blue Lakes Country Club prices on different meal items, space available and dates that are available.

Dale Jarrell will get us entered into the Buhl 4th of July parade again this year. If anyone would like to come out and help, we always can use it. And don't forget to come to the Jarrells' 4th of July BBQ get together, it is always GREAT!! Contact Dale on what is on the menu and what you can bring.

Free Fishing will be held THIS Saturday June 13th at the Idaho State Fish Hatchery in Hagerman. It starts at 9:00 and goes until 1:00. We can use all the members we can get to help out the kids.
