Magic Valley Bassmasters March 2011 Meeting

Scyler brought the meeting to order and gave account balance.

Monte Bruhn was our guest speaker, he wanted to ask the club if they would help with the "Doug Bridges Memorial Hunts" with a fishing day. The foundation is Take a "Wounded Warrior" on your next outdoor adventure. Monte started this memorial in honor of his friends son Doug that had been killed in the line of duty. He is wanted to give back to those that have served our country. Scyler is checking on insurance policy. The club was excited to help out and we would possible to do a tournament sometime in September. More information will follow as the event gets closer.

Federation News:
-The federation is putting together an "Ultimate Angler" tournament. You must fish either 4 qualifier or open tournaments. The cost would be $50.00 to enter in addition to what ever tournament you are fishing; total pay in will be $200.00 to compete in the tournament. They would collect the name and money from each person at that event. The State Team would profit a small amount and the rest would be paid out to the "Ultimate Anglers". The tournament will be held in September at C.J. Strike.
-The TBF Banquet at the Garden Inn this year in Twin Falls. The cost would be around $45.00 per person and that would include a few raffle tickets. Hopefully they will have a good turnout from around this area. More information still to come.

A big Thank You goes out to everyone that came out to the Dave Withers Big Bass Derby. The club received $605.00 dollars in donation. The weather was good for us and everyone seemed to have a good time fishing and at the bbq. Thank you for those who brought an item.

The club sent flowers to Denton Crofts, he is recovering from surgery. He had to have surgery to remove his colon due to an abscess and prior surgeries. We wish him a speedy recovery so we are able to see him on the water again.

Congradulations goes out to Pat & Ron, they are the "Magic Valley Reservoir Ice Fishing Champions". They took home $270.00 dollars for catching slime rockets. Good job guys...

Our first tournament will be this Saturday at C.J. Strike, don't forget to bring your insurance papers for this year. No paper no fishing!! Thank you to Ron Haffner for volunteering to pulling the trailer to C.J. Strike and Brownlee.

The club voted and passed Chris Tucker back into the club.
