OLD BUSINESS:  Federation banquet date will be on January 24,2004 at the Caldwell Elks.  Chris Horton (National Conservation Manager) will be here from B.A.S.S as a guest speaker.

Scheduling meeting went well, no complaints at this point.


Scyler Hill is repairing the release boat trailer.  He is putting new fenders on it, moving the axles forward to deal with the weight of the tanks, re-welding the trailer cross members, etc.  He has spent $400 on it already.  He wants to put new tires on it and wants $225 to buy them.  A motion was passed to give him the money.  He refused an offer to reimburse him the $400 that he has already spent.



Judge Vehlow wants to know how many clubs would support a fishing outing for juveniles on probation.  He has had luck in the past with programs like this helping turn kids in trouble lives around.  Possibly looking at Sept. 19 for an outing.



There being no more new business, President Worthen reminded all that the next meeting would be December 18, 2003 at Tri State Marine.  The meeting adjourned at 9:00 p.m.
