§ Cascade tournament is Sept. 14.
§ Jeremy suggested that the Snow Bowl Team members have a meeting Friday before the Snow Bowl.
CLASSIC / HAN: Directors Steve Day reported:

§ A motion was made and passed to drop the night tournament opens and go back to a one or two day SRB Classic format for 2014. Looking at going to Owyhee Reservoir as the fishing is good and no one is currently holding an open there.
