Adam will get water and hot dogs. Chris will bring coolers and ice. The cost to rent the pavillion is $350. If we were to cover admission to the park for one adult per child, that would also be another $360. A motion made to have $710 out of general fund cover these two expenses and the motion passed. The start time for the event is at 08:00, so volunteers are asked to get there at 7:00. Adam will get name tags printed prior to the event. He will also print out a list of the kids' names for the photraphers. Jim mentioned that what works well is to take a picture of the kid's badge before taking a picture of the kid so that when the photos come out, we know which kid the picture is of. These instructions will be passed to the photography crew, who after being nominated by their husbands, will consist of Tiff and Jennifer. Terry Colwell will run the registration table.

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
2nd) 21.75 lbs - Mike R.
1st) 26.75 lbs - Bob
Bob had BB with a 6.00.


Fishing times for Falcon are as follows: 6:45 - 3:00 on Saturday with weigh-in at State Park. 6:45 - 1:00 on Sunday with weigh-in at County Ramp.


Mike K. has a place reserved for the weekend that fishes 15 people and currently has 10 comitted. The address of the place is 130 N Jab, Zapata, TX.


A sleep-deprived Curt Covey was presented with the AOY award plaque for 2018 to thunderous applause.

2019 January Minutes


Meeting called to order at 7:00 pm.


Members Present: Ron, Ken, Mark, Bob, Mike R., Warren, Chris, Jason, Gary, Don, Steve, Ruben, Geno, Adam, Lyle, Craig, Justin, and Levi.


Minutes: Minutes of the December meeting were read and approved.


Treasurer's Report: After the Travis tournament, meat for the Christmas party, and plaques, the ending balance of the General Fund is $2,209.26 and the ending balance of the Charity Fund is $189.06.


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.


New Business:


Baby Covey arrived this morning and the report is that the baby and mother are doing well.
