December Meeting and Tournament:

Our December meeting will be on Thursday, December 5, 2013 at 7:00pm in Room 116 of the Fellowship and Education Building at Covenant Presbyterian Church, 3003 Northland Dr., Austin, Texas.  Our December tournament will be on Saturday, December 7, 2013.  Bob Smith and Brian Kitchen have volunteered to provide refreshments at this month’s meeting.

Club News:

A majority of the members present at the November club meeting voted to not change the current method of computing club standings for the year.  The results of all twelve tournaments will continue to be counted in determining club standings for the year.

The 2014 proposed slate of officers/directors was presented at the November meeting.  The slate includes Mitch Shelton for president, Brian Kitchen for vice-president, Darryl Smith for secretary, and Carlton Yarbrough for treasurer.  The slate of directors includes Bob Smith, Jim Rumbo, Tom White, Brooks Griffith, and Jim Pollard (Couples Club).  Officers/directors will be voted on for 2014 at the upcoming meeting.

Fishing Report:

Winter weather has descended upon us.  I haven’t been on the water since our last club tournament, but I’m ready to wrap up the year.  I’m hoping we will have some beautiful weather for our last tournament of the year.  We have fished the following lakes twice this year: Lake Travis, Lake Austin, Lake Bastrop, Fayette County, and Decker Lake.  Don’t forget about the upcoming club meeting.  I’ll see you there.
