July 2011 Newsletter

The next monthly Club meeting is on Monday 1 August  2011, at the Fort Leavenworth Rod and Gun Club. The grills will be ready at 6:00 PM for you to cook your steaks, hamburgers or whatever you want to bring. The meeting will begin at 7:00 PM.  Announcement: Just a reminder that our website is out there for all members to use, so get out there and check it out.  If you have anything that you would like to see on the website, please let Travis Perret know.  The website is located at the following address: http://theleavenworthbassclub.org/.  Also, please inform Travis and Bob concerning your buddies for the upcoming Buddy Tournaments so the rosters can be posted and updated accordingly.  This will allow folks looking for partners to figure out who might be available to fish in a given tournament.  Additionally, please check to make sure your personal information is correct on the webpage.  If your information is not correct, please notify Larry to ensure we have the most current information on the club rosters and he will get the webmaster the correct information.

For all of you that missed the July meeting, you missed a great potluck meal with fish provided by Bob Jorgenson. A special thanks to all that bought the food. You also missed a chance to win a free entry into a 2011 season tournament.  Just remember, you cannot affect any club decisions or win a free entry into a tournament, if you do not show up for the meetings! Be sure to plan to attend the August meeting.  Come early and join us around the bar.
