The treasurer’s report was accepted as read.

 

Conservation Committee:  The club discussed what to do with our old plastics and how to recycle them.  One option is to send them to a bait company and the club pays for shipping and handling.  Some members are asking local hand poured enthusiasts if they would like to have them.  If you have any ideas please contact Dan Senterfit.

 

Youth Committee:  Bill spoke with the club president of the NWMSU about seminar scheduling.  Bill is communicating with some local youth groups to encourage them to participate in next year’s youth tournament.  Larry thanked everyone from the LBC who participated in the Rod and Gun Club kids fishing derby.
