Boaters need to send Mike O their updated 2023 Insurance Certificates.

  1.  Greg G gave a financial update.  We currently have a $1,725 balance in our account that includes paid dues from several members.  Members need to pay 2023 dues = $170.  Also, you must enter the Annual Big Bass Pot BEFORE the first tournament starts on April 22.  This is optional.

  2. Greg G is donating $400 to the Club for a Big Bag of the Year Pot.  This pot will pay $200 to the Boater and $200 to the Non-Boater that bring the heaviest bag to the scales for any one day in a Club tournament.  This includes 2 day events and the Classic.  It does NOT have to be a 5 fish limit.  If the heaviest bag of the year contains fewer than 5 fish, it counts.
