The General Membership Meeting Minutes follows:

 WELCOME:

The Leavenworth Bass Club held its regular monthly meeting on 2 December, 2013 at the Fort Leavenworth Rod and Gun Club Clubhouse.  There were 15 members present. The president called the meeting to order at 7:00 pm.

 Secretary’s Report:  The minutes for the 4 November, 2013 general membership meeting were approved as written.  They were e-mailed to all members and were posted to the club website.

Treasurer’s Report:   The secretary in lieu of the treasurer reported a beginning balance of $3,122.11 and a current balance of $3,853.77. The Fishing for Freedom account has a beginning balance of $20,268.61 and a current balance of $20,189.77.  The treasurer’s report was accepted as read.

Conservation Committee: The conservation chairman had nothing to report. Please continue to bring your used plastics baits and monofilament line to the next meeting in February so we can continue the recycling effort. Dan is in process of applying for the B.A.S.S. Conservation Award for 2013.

 

 Youth Committee:  Bill has worked with the KS Parks and Wildlife office and the Fishing’s Future organization and set up a class to teach our members how to better teach youth the many aspects of fishing. The class will be on 14 December at 9:00 thru about noon at the Rod and Gun Clubhouse. Any more members interested in participating should let Bill know as soon as possible. So far, 10 members have signed up to attend:  Me, Steve R, Mike B, John M, Dan S, Ray C, Bob J, Bob G, Bill G, and Larry S.  Plenty of room for more. The local fish biologist for our area and an individual from parks and Wildlife are also expected to attend.

 

The club voted to invite the president and one other member of the NW Missouri State Fishing Club to the banquet.

 

Banquet Committee: The banquet is still scheduled for 25 January, 2014 at the Leavenworth Eagles.  Steve says plans are on track – social hour from 5:00 to 6:00, dinner, followed by awards and door prizes. He is updating the booklet for the banquet too.

Webmaster:  The webmaster was not present but the president for him asked the members to look at the angler profiles he’s added to the web site and update yours through him. He asked each of us to let him know of any corrections to the Members’ Only page. He discussed issues we’re having with updating the web site, and the possibility of saving some money by moving the site’s host to Go Daddy.  The president also asked several members to meet with him and the webmaster to discuss our options and develop a recommendation for what to do with the web site.

Vice President’s report:  No report

 

President’s Report: No report.

New Members: None

Tournament Director’s Report:  The results of the November Table Rock tournament and big bass checks were handed out. We thought the weather was a bit cool on Saturday, but was balmy compared to Sunday. Frozen trailers and boxes, anyone ??
