New Business:

 

State Championship tournament on Belton was moved to April 26-27 (from the fall)for the composition of the 2020 State Team. State tournaments will now be in the spring, until it changes again. The Board of Directions met on this issue and discussed that since our by-laws were recently changed for the tournament year to follow the Texas B.A.S.S. Nation year, the club will simply use points from the 2018 calendar year to get the line-up of boaters/non-boaters. We need to know by the next meeting who will be going.

 

Mark proposed the following changes to the Tournament Rules in writing for vote at the next meeting, requiring a 2/3 majority of members present.
1) Section 10.c., removing the restriction to fish at least 6 tournaments to qualify to go to the State Tournament, leaving the rule to read, "The club will allow any member in good standing (paid yearly dues and has not been sanctioned by Board of Directors) for the qualifying year to attend, up to the tournament max."
2) Section 8.h. regarding members weighing in on the same scales, prompted by the recent tournament where we used loaner scales from TP&W. The proposed rule will read, "All members must weigh in on the same scales at the discretion of the Tournament Director."
3) Section 14 regarding paper tournaments which must currently all be in the draw format. The proposed rule (in its entirety) reads, "The format of paper tournaments will be voted on by members fishing the tournament. The scoring sheet for paper tournaments will be handed out before the tournament."

 

Tournament Director's Report:

 

Results for Fayette -
3rd) 11.75 lbs - Lyle

Old Business:

 

C.A.S.T for kids - We are looking at having the event on Sunday, April 28 at Morgan's Wonderland before the park opens to the general public. In addition to the $3,500 that we're raising for the C.A.S.T. organization, there will be a $350 cost from the park itself to use a pavilion where we can have festivities like the awards ceremonies. C.A.S.T. has a chuck wagon that will provide food for the event. We will be raising funds for the $3,500. All money raised will go to the C.A.S.T. organization, not QBC, so that should be kept in mind as folks solicit donations. It was mentioned that we'll resurrect the 'beg letter' and fashion it towards this event.

 

State meeting at Belton - There will be 5 regions this year, as a Northwest region was formed from combining the west and panhandle regions. With only 5 regions instead of 6, this means that to compose the 20-person state team, there will be an extra spot on both the boater and non-boater side up for grabs at the State Championship. It has been decided that this year's state championship will be on Belton.
