February Meeting and Tournament:

Our February meeting will be on Thursday, February 16th, at 7:00pm.  The February tournament will be Saturday, 2/18/2012.  Gary Burnham and Tom Clark have volunteered to bring refreshments to the next meeting.

Club News:

Don’t forget that we will be choosing partners for our March travel tournament to Choke Canyon at our February meeting.  It is important that you let me or Jim Pollard know you want to be included in the draw if you cannot attend the meeting.  We also need to know whether you will depart on Thursday or Friday before the tournament on Saturday.

We will be deciding what events, such as the Amputee Fishing trip and C.A.S.T. for Kids, the club will support when they occur later in the year.  Art Cruser volunteered to research this matter so a decision could be made by the club.

If you need to pay your dues, TABC membership, or for attending the banquet, please bring your payment and give it to Carlton Yarbrough.  I plan to send out the 2012 membership roster following the February meeting.

Fishing Report:

We had 15 teams fishing Lake Bastrop last month and everyone who participated knows how tough it was to get a bite.  Cold weather has not helped improve the bite based upon the fishing reports that I have seen.  Bring any fishing reports you have to the upcoming meeting and I look forward to seeing all of you there.
