TOURNAMENT DIRECTOR: Tournament director Steve Day reported:

J    Owyhee awards and checks were handed out.

J    Yearend results were discussed

J    There was some discussion on the SRB Snow Bowl team; we need to see who is in and who is out before team finalization.

J    There was a discussion on changing the club's tournament format. Cody mentioned that some people that have been fishing Premier may be looking for something to fish next year.  Several suggestions were presented including going to a team format and changing the option pots.  Another suggestion was to allow kids to fish as a part of a team to get them involved; this would remove the problems of a kid's limit in the boat and a kid that only wants to fish a part of a day.


YOUTH: Youth Director Jason Bousquet was not present and had no report

J    Nothing


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

J    Nothing until next year


SNAKE RIVER LADY BASS: Lady Bass President Kira Bousquet was not present and reported by e-mail

PREMIER BASS: No more Premier Bass



J    Next tournament is Grand Championship Oct. 2 & 3 on Dworshak.



J    The discussion on doing away with the free membership was postponed.



J    We got bumped out of the banquet room and held the meeting in some booths out in the dining room.  We need to start looking for a better location, again...

J    Sweatshirts have been delivered to everyone that ordered them.  Steve still has one with no name on it available for purchase.  If more people want to order the sweatshirts, we will have to come up with at least 8 or 9 people to get a good price.

J    More discussion on a flyer about our club to increase membership.  Roger told us that Sportsman's Warehouse will let us have a booth in the entrance to recruit members.


There being no more new business, President KRINER reminded all that the next meeting would be on Oct. 4 at the Denny's Restaurant in Nampa.  The meeting adjourned at 8:50 p.m.
