Our 2018 tournament season has begun.
We recently had our annual meeting and we had a very good turnout.
Here are the highlights from the meeting.
First the Elected Officers:
President: Gene Henry, Sr.
Vice President: Lynne Haas
Secretary: Ralph Iseman
Tournament Director: Tom Kaufmann
Under Old Business:
Tournament Director Tom Kaufmann revisited the problems we are having with the newly purchased (2017) scales. It seems that the new scales have some of the same problems the old scales had. Tom is looking for a replacement or a fix for the current set of scales.
In the past, the club provided weigh bags at the weigh in. The club's current weigh bags are all leaking water and need to be replaced. Ed Campbell offered to try to get some Tourney Weigh Bags from his employer, Bass Pro. If he can get these bags they probably wouldn't get us through the season.
A motion was made to require each boat to supply their own weigh bags. This motion passed
2018 Tournament Schedule:
We reviewed this year's tournament schedule. Some had concerns about having two tournaments at Stockton Lake. In the past we have had a low turnout for Stockton Lake tournaments. We are hoping to have a good turnout at both Stockton Lake tournaments.
A motion was made to add Mozingo Lake to our tournament schedule next year. The city of Maryville owns Mozingo Lake and requires bass clubs to reserve in advance and pay a tournament fee to conduct tournaments on their lake. Jim Wyatt said he would pay the required $100 tournament fee to have a tournament at Mozingo. Mozingo also requires each boat to pay $9 a day to use the lake. This will be paid by the boater. This motion passed. Tournament Director Tom Kaufmann will contact the city of Maryville and see if any openings are available for our 2019 season.
A motion was made to add Smithville Lake to our tournament schedule next year. This motion failed.
Our first two tournaments are individual tournaments and will be held on March 24 & 25 (Sat & Sun). We'll be fishing Lake of the Ozark and launching from the Shawnee Bend Public Access Area ramp. Motels are filling up, so make your reservations now.

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. Just tell them you're a club member when you are making your reservation.
On Saturday, October 13th 2012, we had our second annual post season dinner. Thank you to Owen and Melissa Neff for putting on this event. We also want to thank Owen for volunteering to be our treasurer during 2012. We appreciate the time spent and job well done.
