TOURNAMENT DIRECTOR: Tournament director Steve Day reported:

J    Some revision of the Snow Bowl Team was done.

J    Looking at a date in August for the HSN tournament; it may conflict with the C.A.S.T. event.  It depends on if they are holding C.A.S.T. on the 2nd or 3rd weekend in August.  We will try to get a date on Cascade in July for the Kid's Open.

J    There was a discussion on bodies of water for tournaments in 2011; Anderson Ranch was mentioned.

J    There was a discussion covering possible fun tournaments that involve family members.  We will look at scheduling at least a couple fun tournaments / events in 2011.


YOUTH: Youth Director Jason Bousquet reported

J    No report


CLASSIC / HAN: Directors Steve Day and Bill Kriner  reported:

J    The August 2011 full moon is on Saturday Aug. 13; we want to schedule the HSN tournament on that date if possible.  Second choice: July 2011 full moon is on Friday July 15

SNAKE RIVER LADY BASS: Lady Bass President Kira Bousquet reported:

J    Kira is out for Lady Bass President in 2011. A discussion was held concerning the need for a Lady Bass President and group.  With the club going to a team format, Lady Bass plaques wouldn't really be an option.  Lady Bass will be removed from the by-laws, but the Lady Bass open and needy family program will still need to be continued.

J    Everyone needs to remember to bring a can of food or a dollar to each meeting for the Needy Family program.


PREMIER BASS: No more Premier Bass



J    No more Superior?



J    The revised by-laws were reviewed and passed.



J    Everyone still needs to keep an eye open for a better meeting location.

J    The SRB meetings will continue to be held at Denny's Restaurant.  Smokey Mountain Pizza would let us have meetings, but we would have to spend a minimum of $100 per meeting on food/drinks; if members spent less,  the club would have to pay the difference.

J    2011 SRB Officers:

o       President: Tom Horrace                      Vice-president: Roger Sheltrown

o       Secretary: Chad Beverage                  Youth: Cody Murray

o       Tournament Dir: Steve Day                Weigh Master: Bill Kriner
