Magic Valley Bassmasters March 2016 Meeting

President Zach Taylor brought the meeting to order at 7:00 at Idaho Joes.

The club voted on and passed to donate 2 $50.00 baskets from CTV for the federation banquet. The banquet had a good turnout with the money raised going to the youth fund. They are still looking for a secretary/treasure and vice president. Congratulations to Brandon Craner and Chris McFee on making the Idaho Bass Federation State Team.
