The November 7th 2011 General Membership Meeting Minutes follows:

 

WELCOME

The Leavenworth Bass Club held its regular monthly meeting on December 5th at the Fort Leavenworth Rod and Gun Club Clubhouse.  There were 17 members present. The vice president called the meeting to order at 7:00 pm, due to the president being absent.

 

Secretary’s Report:  The secretary informed everyone that the minutes for the November 2011 general membership meeting were not e-mailed to all members that have e-mail and were posted to the club website.  Being new to the position the secretary did not email the minutes to everyone but will from now on.  The minutes from the November 2011 general membership meeting were approved as written.

 

2012 membership dues are being accepted.  $65 must be paid before you fish your first tournament.

 

            Treasurer’s Report:  Treasurer reported a beginning balance of $3015.24 and a current balance of $3831.26. The Treasurer reported a beginning balance of $3872.12 in the Fishing for Freedom account with a current balance of $3618.51.

 

Conservation Committee:  No Report

 

Youth Committee:  Cabelas ask the club to host the Kids Casting event on March 4th 2012.  Bill will be looking for volunteers to help out.  You get a free lunch and a discount on items purchased that day.

 

Banquet Committee:  Due to some confusion with the reservation the dates for the banquet are set for Jan 28th.  Happy hour from 5 to 6 with a cash bar. Dinner at 6:30.  We also decided how much to allocate for prizes.

 

Webmaster:  Reminder to enter your email into the “Follow Us” box on the front page.  This way you will get automatic emails when the site adds info or pictures.  Pictures of the Table Rock tournament will be added soon.

 

Vice President’s report:  No report

 

President’s Report: no report

 

OLD BUSINESS The club voted on Sportsman of the Year.  The three top vote getters were (in no particular order):  Ken Hackworth, Bob Jorgensen, and Larry Stoafer.  Congrats to these three.  The club prides itself on all the members being outstanding sportsmen.  This year, in the eyes of the club members, you three have gone beyond the normal call of a sportsman.  Thank you and good luck.

 

 

NEW BUSINESS The club congratulated Larry Stoafer and Mark Justice for their win at Pomme de Terre with the Joe Bass tournament circuit.

 

A member of the club also reminded us that we should still have speakers come talk to the club.  I could be a club member who excels at a particular technique or a guest speaker.  We are happy to listen.  So if you want to speak to the club or know someone who does let Bill Horvath know.
