Lyla Bienhoff - Mike R. to touch base with Lyla again to see what we can do to help.


Fund raising ideas. A meeting was held and some ideas were discussed, but there is nothing to present at this time. OPEN.


Language of by-laws for "member in good standing" - No update. OPEN.


New Business:


Plaques for angler of year and sportsman of the year. Ron, via proxy, is looking for $150 for the two plaques. The name plate for the travelling big bass trophy has already been taken care of. A vote was taken to spend for the $150 on the two plaques and it passed.


Bob confirmed that the CAST for Kids event this year will be on October 20 at Coleto.


The March meeting will be held at Mark's office (still at 7:00) and he will send out information. Dan will update the website with the info that the March meeting location is moved.


Levi mentioned that he had been approached to see if our club could help in a statewide study for aging and sizing of largemouth bass. Our contribution would be removing a scale from one or two weighed in fish at each tournament and sending it in with info on the fish such as length and where it was caught. After some discussion, it appears that we can do this without much effort and without much disruption to the weigh-in process, so it was agreed that we would participate. One benefit that we will see is that a few weeks after weigh-in, Levi can report back how old a certain fish was.


Ken mentioned that the slot limit on Fayette has changed and is now 16"-24".


With some recent boating incidents at night, Mark mentioned that club members ensure that their lights are on while boating in the dark.
