Magic Valley Bassmasters October 2009 Meeting

Scyler opened the meeting at 7:05.

Federation news; the banquet is set for November 21st , if you stay at the hotel mention the banquet for a room discount. Scyler proposed the idea about all 3 clubs donating $125.00 each for a raffle or bidding item for the banquet, the money pulled together would go for a gun that we would buy from Brad's. It was voted on and passed. The qualifier format will more than likely change next year the big change being 4 tourney on 2 weekends. Nominations will be in November, if you would like to be an officer or nominate someone let Scyler know.

Dale Taylor floored the idea of buying our ticket and hotel room, he says it is for all we do for the club. It was voted on and passed. Thank you from both of us, this means allot to us as well as all the club members.

We had a good turnout for the C.J. Strike tournament, the first day the weather was good but that second day was a little hairy with the wind and the waves. The BBQ was great, thanks to everyone that was there. Congratulations to the winners:
