Club News:

Don’t miss the last club meeting of 2016. We will vote on officers and directors for next year as well as the member that will receive the Al Lykins Sportsmanship Award.

Changes in the Club Bylaws:

Section II. Annual Awards of the bylaws states in II.4, The “Johnny Mayes Sportsmanship Award” will be presented at the annual banquet to the club member receiving the most votes cast in a secret ballot at the December meeting. It was proposed that this annual award be renamed the “Al Lykins Sportsmanship Award”.  Section II.5 states, The “Back Seater of the Year” award will be presented to the club member amassing the greatest poundage of fish in club tournaments as a “non-rigger” in that calendar year.”  It was also proposed that this annual award be renamed the “T.V. Minner Back Seater of the Year” award.  Both of these proposals were voted on and passed during the October meeting.  The club bylaws will be changed to reflect these changes.
