January 2018 Meeting and Tournament:

Our January meeting will be on Thursday, January 18, 2018 at 7:00pm at Pok-e-Jo’s Smokehouse on Parmer Lane. Our January tournament will be on Saturday, January 20, 2018. Don’t miss the first meeting of the year and the weather forecast for Saturday indicates it will be a great day to be on the water.

Club News:

I only have several reminders for you as we start the new year. Dues and other fees are due this month. Please use the membership form that I sent out as an attachment yesterday to document what you are paying for and to provide updated contact information for the club roster.

Consider when and where you would like to have a travel tournament this year. If we pursue a Spring travel tournament, plans need to begin soon to ensure we can get lodging for the date we choose.

Fishing Reports:

Plan to share your fishing reports with everyone at the upcoming meeting. I will see you at the meeting next Thursday evening.
