We discussed starting times for our tournaments. Next year's starting times will be scheduled at the earliest time available (safe light).
A motion was made to schedule a tournament on Stockton Lake. This motion passed and next year's schedule will include a tournament on Stockton Lake.
We discussed moving the Ronell Foster Classic (Fish-Off) tournament to later in the fall. Next year the Ronell Foster Classic will be on the 3rd weekend of October.
After moving our Classic tournament to October, we ended up having no tournaments in September. A motion was made to add another tournament to next year's schedule. This tournament will be held on the last weekend of September and will be on the same lake as the Classic tournament. This tournament can also count toward the 5 tournaments needed to be eligible to fish the Classic.
Our tournament director, Tom Kaufmann, talked about how the summer heat affected our aging weigh scales. Tom made a recommendation that we trade in our current scales and buy new scales. To pay for the new scales, the attending members decided to donate money by passing the hat. Jim Wyatt and Joe Wiley offered to make up the difference if the members' donations fell short. Thanks to the attending members, Jim Wyatt, and Joe Wiley, we will have new tournament scales this year.
We will be using the point system again this year. Rex Murdock has offered to track the points and Tom Kaufmann has offered to donate his custom made rods.
Please keep former members Jim Bartlett, Chris Petersen and former president Ronell Foster in your thoughts and prayers. They are dealing with health issues.
Thanks to Tom Kaufmann for being Tournament Director and thanks to Gene Henry, Sr. for accepting the President position.
We have a new sponsor for the 2013 tournament season. Clearlight Inn, located three miles south of Hermitage at Carson's Corner (hwy 254 & hwy 64). Clearlight Inn has said they will give special discount rates to Men of Honor Bass Club members who are fishing tournaments on Pomme de Terre Lake.
