 The April 30th, 2012 General Membership Meeting Minutes follows:

 WELCOME

The Leavenworth Bass Club held its regular monthly meeting on April 30th at the Fort Leavenworth Rod and Gun Club Clubhouse.  There were 25 members present. The president called the meeting to order at 7:00 pm.

 Secretary’s Report:  The minutes for the April 4th 2012 general membership meeting were approved as written.  They were e-mailed to all members and were posted to the club website.  Mobass mailed out their Board of Directors meeting minutes Travis will scan them and post them to the website.

 Treasurer’s Report:   Treasurer reported a beginning balance of $2722.74 and a current balance of $3054.49. The Treasurer reported a balance of $2139.32 in the Fishing for Freedom account.  The Fishing For Freedom PayPal account has a current balance of $ 0. The treasurer’s report was accepted as read.

Conservation Committee: No Report

 Youth Committee:  Shawn Dalrymple did a seminar with the NW Missouri University fishing club.  The NWMU is interested in having a fall fishing event with LBC participation.  Bill Horvath is looking for club members to donated bags of plastic baits that he can hand out at kids events and to the NWMU club.   

Banquet Committee: We currently do not have a volunteer to head up the banquet for 2013. Anyone interested please contact Bill Horvath for the information on last’s year event.  We need someone to step up and do this.  Two places have been reserved for the club to decide on which to use. The banquet date is Jan 26th.   

 Webmaster:  If you have something you would like to see on the website please email it to Travis at wayrnnr@yahoo.com and he will post it.  Fishing pictures or fishing articles would be great.

 Vice President’s report: Bill added our club to the list on the Mobass website.

 President’s Report:  The next Mobass meeting on June 2, 2012 will be attended by Bill Horvath and Mike Brooks.  We will need someone to represent the club at the September 8th meeting.  This is a mandatory meeting and we must have a club member present to represent LBC.  If you are interested in going please let Mike Brooks know.  There was a discussion on whether the club puts how we choose the team to go to the state tournament into the tournament rules or into the by-laws.  This will be determined at a later date.

OLD BUSINESS:  Larry Stoafer reported on Fishing For Freedom.  He said it’s going extremely well with a lot of volunteers already on board.  The date is October 6th and 7th.  He also brought to the clubs attention a lack in seminars.  The club as a group decided we will try better to have seminars at the meetings.  Seminars are provided by whoever would like to volunteer. 

At that moment, Bob Jorgensen and Dennis Edwards volunteered to do a seminar at the next meeting on how to catch fish in June at Truman Lake. 

NEW BUSINESS:  Larry has been working on a grant for $1469.24 provided by Cabelas to the LBC for the outstanding community work that we do.  It is in the final approval stages. 

Smithville Marina has donated $25 gift cards to the club.  Please stop into Smithville Marina and thank them for supporting our club.  There will be a drawing after each club tournament and only the participants of that tournament are eligible for the drawing.  It was approved by the club to have the tournament committee draw the winners for the past tournament participants after the April 30th meeting.  The gift cards will be handed out to the winners at the next meeting.  So be sure to fish as many tournaments as possible to get a chance at a $25 gift card from Smithville Marina. 

 Tournament Director’s ReportSchooner Creek donated two plaques for the Table Rock tournament.  One plaque for the angler who received the most combined points.  The second plaque for the angler who caught the largest fish of the weekend.  Bob Jorgensen won the plaque for most combined points and Dennis Edwards won the plaque for the largest fish of the weekend.
