The Ray Hubbard Bass Club will be holding our eleventh and last meeting of 2016 on Thursday November 10th. The meeting will be held at Bass Pro Garland downstairs in the restaurant on the patio. The meeting will start at 7:00PM.
This is the last meeting of the year so we have a lot of important business to cover to wrap up the 2016 season and plan for 2017.
We will be recapping last months tournament on Lake Texoma. There were lots of limits weighed in, so if you finished up top, come prepared to tell us all a fishin story. We will talk about our Club Championship tournament on Cedar Creek coming up this weekend, November 12-13. All info will be provided including where we are staying, how much payout will be and who is eligible. Remember, check the standings on the web site. If your name is in green, you have qualified. Plan on joining us. If you qualified, and your partner did not, let me know and we can try and pair you up for the weekend. If you would rather fish solo, you can do that. We are fishing 7-4 on Saturday and 7-2 on Sunday and the tournament weigh ins will be at the Log Cabin ramp starting at 4:30 on Saturday and 2:30 on Sunday.
We will go over our highly successful Fish For A Cure benefit tournament last month. All facts, numbers and a huge number of thank yous will be handed out. Also, we have t-shirts left from the event. If you would like to buy one, they are discounted to 10 bucks each or 2 for 15. We have XL and 2XL sizes left. Bring some cash! Of course, all proceeds from that will go directly to ACS.
That leaves the big three items. Rules/By Laws changes. If you have a rule you would like to be changed for 2017, bring it up and the Club will vote on it. If you want a new rule put in, same thing. This is the ONLY time we alter the rules or by laws. Secondly, Officer Elections for 2017. We have openings for Tournament Directors and truly any of the offices are open. If you are interested in running a big Bass Club, this is the time and place for you! A Club thrives on new blood and new ideas. Bring yours to our group. I'm not Hillary or Trump but I'm sure someone out there can do a better job at this than me so get involved!
Lastly, we will select our Championship Lake and the lakes we will fish in 2017. We have a large ballot of lakes. Everyone will vote and the nine that get the most votes will be selected. If you want to be on the lake selection committee, volunteer to do so. That committee meets for breakfast on Thanksgiving weekend to take the nine lakes selected and make the schedule for 2017. As the rules stand now, we cannot fish a lake for the Championship that we fish during the regular season. Consider this or consider changing that rule. Your choice. We will also be asking for volunteers to be on the committee for next years Fish For a Cure benefit. This year was a success, but we want to make next year a blowout. We are going to start earlier and be better prepared. If you want to help, we need you!
Last school fiesta of the year! Come early! Stay Late! Tip the wait staff well! See you there!
