November 15, 2001 MEETING MINUTES


The regular membership of the Idaho State B.A.S.S. Federation was called to order by Vice President James Raitter at 7:30 P.M. at the Tri State Marine.  There were 12 officers, representatives and guests present.


The minutes of October 2001 were approved as written.


TREASURY REPORT: The Treasurer reported a balance of $16776.95 of which $0 is Conservation ; $2811.40 in the Lake Lowell fund, $105.64 Youth; $9492.00 State Team and $3171.13 in Operating Funds. Steve noted that he had changed a treasury report from July 2001 due to $1000 from B.A.S.S. being put into the General Fund when it should have been put into South Operating Fund due to release boat repairs.  Treasury report was approved.






YOUTH: Youth Director LARRY RAGANIT was not present and did not report



CONSERVATION: Conservation Officer STEVE SPICKELMIER had no report



TOURNAMENT DIRECTOR: Tournament director J.C. WORTHEN reported:

¨        The Divisional Qualifier in California might be moved from May 12 – 17, 2002 to May 20 – 24, 2002.

¨        Steve Day requested clearing up the South Qualifier locations that listed two lakes so that he could apply for permits.  The first Qualifier will be at C.J. Strike and the third Qualifier will be applied for at Lake Lowell; alternate for this would be to go to Lake Owyhee.

¨        The Northern Region is still working on their Qualifier dates.  Fish & Game is talking about limiting the number of permits allowed on Coeur d’Alene Lake.


COMMUNICATION: Communication Officer JAMES RAITTER reported:

¨        The newsletter was returned from the printer because they couldn’t find one of the pages.  James showed that the page is still there, so there may have been computer issues at the printer.  Newsletter was sent back to the printer to try again.  Steve Day will re-send the address labels to the printer.



¨        The contract from the B.A.S.S. Federation Alliance was discussed; it was decided to sign the contract.  The new sponsors will be added to the website in the near future.

¨        The lawsuit against the former Federation member is continuing and we have a court date later this month for a default hearing.



¨        The results of the election for 2002 Federation officers are:

o       President:  Dusty Womack

o       Vice President:  JC Worthen

o       Secretary/treasurer:  Steve Day

¨        A motion to update the State Team Code of Conduct to include a line about the intended use of expense money was made and passed.  The Code of Conduct will be revised before being sent to the 2002 State Team.

¨        C.A.S.T. certificates from this year’s event were handed out to the club representatives.


There being no more new business, Vice President Raitter reminded all that the next meeting would be on Dec. 20.  The meeting adjourned at 8:15 p.m.
