DECEMBER  NEWSLETTER

 

ONLY 8 MEMBERS SHOWED AT THE NOVEMBER MEETING. WE HAD PRELIMINARY NOMINATIONS FOR THE 2014 BOARD OF DIRECTORS.

PRESIDENT: JOHNNY MAROTTA

VICE PRESIDENT: DAVE YOUNG

SECRETARY: KEN KOSOWSKI OR DENNIS (PENDING DENNIS' APPROVAL)

TREASURER: NONE NOMINATED

TOURNAMENT DIRECTOR: JIMMY SCHOUP (RICK TO ASSIST)

TOURNAMENT PARTICAIPATION WAS DISCUSSED.  SINCE 2004 WE HAVE HAD A PARTICIPATION DROP FROM A HIGH IN 2004 OF 83% TO A LOW IN 2013 OF 55%.  SEVERAL REASONS FOR THE DROP OFF ARE:

A) PERSONAL CHOICE, NOT WANT TO DRIVE FAR OR NOT LIKE THE LAKE PICKED

B) CHILDREN

C) PERSONAL FAMILY CRISIS

D) OTHER COMMITMENTS

GENTLEMEN WE PUBLISH THE SCHEDULE IN MARCH SO THAT YOU CAN PLAN ACCORDINGLY. IF YOU HAVE SUGGESTIONS ON HOW WE CAN GET BETTER PARTICIPATION TALK TO A MEMBER OF THE BOARD OR COME TO A MEETING AND VOICE YOUR CONCERNS. LET'S SHOOT FOR 80% THIS YEAR.

DECEMBER WE WILL NOMINATE THE BALANCE OF THE 2014 OFFICERS.

THE BANQUET IS TENATIVELY SCHEDULED FOR FEBRUARY 8TH AT 6PM AS USUAL. JOE AND JOHN SHALL DISCUSS NEXT MONTH THE PLANS MORE IN DEPTH.

KEVIN HAS EXPRESSED HIS DESIRE TO STEP DOWN AS TREASURER. HE HAS CLOSED THE BANK ACCOUNT AND KEN AND DAVE ARE IN PROCESS OF SPEAKING TO SEVERAL BANKS IN REGARDS TO A NEW ACCOUNT. ANYONE INTERESTED IN BEING TREASURER COME TO DECEMBER MEETING AND SPEAK UP. 

DAVE ALSO STATED AT THE MEETING THAT  THE 6 MAN TEAM IS  LIKELY NOT TO BE GOING TO OGDENSBURG IN AUGUST. HE HAS SPOKEN TO 5 OF THE 6 MEMBERS OF THE TEAM AND THE CONCENSUS IS NOT TO GO.

GOOD FISHING,

DAVID
