Magic Valley Bassmasters May 2010 Meeting

Scyler opened the meeting at 7:00 at Idaho Joes.

He went over the Federation meeting minutes from April. The TIBF Youth Championship moved from Brownlee/Woodhead to Brownlee/Spring Rec. on June 19, 2010. They have only received 2 entry forms, they are needing more. If you are going to be a boat volunteer you will receive $50.00 for your expense. If anyone is needing information contact John Lancaster. Scyler has the Solar Bat sunglass sample kit, they are being sold for $16.00. We will need to have a dozen pair to place an order. We will have the sample kit with us at the OPEN if anyone is interested in them. We have a few orders, so hopefully we will be getting some more. Scyler will be getting more information for those that are wanting to have a prescription eyewear. The 2010 Federation Banquet is scheduled, it will be at the Hilton Garden Inn at Boise.

Thank you to everyone for a fantastic Brownlee tournament and BBQ. It was great to have all the help setting up, cooking, all the great food and with clean up. We would like to thank Tom & Heather for donating the hamburger and Tom for donating the brats. Thank you to H-Vac and Gold Key Auto for sponsoring this tournament. And a thank you to Kurt and Kevin for pulling the trailer. We had 22 boats total with both clubs and 20 of the boats played our club. The fishing was a little harder for some than others, but I think everyone had a good time; at least the weather was on our side. The winners were:

I hope everyone is ready for the OPEN, ready or not it is this weekend. I mailed out the entry forms for the last 2 years of entries. As of Saturday, I have only received 12 entry forms. Please don't forget that the deadline is WEDNESDAY, MAY 12th, after that date, the LATE FEE will be enforced. If anyone needs to contact Scyler, you can call his cell phone 539-1346, he isn't able to answer during work hours, but leave him a message and he will return your call. And you may also drop off your money and entry form at his work (Twin Falls Truck) or mine (Green Acres Pet Center). Jay at the River Side will be doing the Hog Feed again and have a bar set up on the lawn. The price to eat will be $8.00 per plate. Scyler will be at River Side about 1:00 on Friday to start setting up. If anyone is available, he would appreciate the help. The people that we have down to help with the tournament is: Dale & Shawn will be doing the chalk lines; Dale, Shawn, Vern and Steve will be doing the live well checks; Scyler, Butch and Dale T. will be doing the parking lot. Kevin will be getting the lights and Shane, Butch and Pat will be doing the weigh in. If you see anyone needing help, please jump in and help. I know everyone would appreciate all the help we can get, especially at the end of the tournament with getting everything cleaned up and put away. We will go and get the release boat Sunday and have it down there on Friday. The drawing and meeting will be Friday night at 7:30, if you are not able to be at the meeting, we will have your banner and permit down by the launch point on a table.
