September 19, 2002 MEETING MINUTES


The regular membership of the Idaho State B.A.S.S. Federation was called to order by President Dusty Womack at 7:30 P.M. at the Tri State Marine.  There were 10 officers, representatives and guests present.


The minutes of  August 2002 were approved as written.


TREASURY REPORT: The Treasurer reported a balance of $11974.53 of which $2811.44 is Conservation; $1080.52 in the South Operating fund, $230.64 Youth; $5952.43 State Team and $1899.50 in General Funds. Treasury report was approved.


INTRODUCTIONS AND ANNOUNCEMENTS: Guests introduced were: Jeff Dillon, IDFG Regional Fisheries Manager.




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



CONSERVATION: Conservation Officer STEVE BURK reported:

¨        Paddock is going to be drained and has been opened up for fish salvage by IDFG.  A fish salvage by the Federation was discussed, but it would be too difficult to try and capture any fish due to shallow water, deep mud and lack of useable boat ramps.  Transporting fish would be difficult as well.

¨        The Irrigation District will be draining the Nampa canal at Lake Lowell on Sept. 23.  There are always fish trapped in the canal that die when it dries up.  After a long discussion, the Federation decided to try and salvage these fish and put them back into Lake Lowell.  Jeff Dillon from IDFG said that he would give us a permit to do this and try to provide nets to capture the fish.  The plan is to meet at the dam around 2:00 p.m. on Monday Sept. 23.


TOURNAMENT DIRECTOR: Tournament director Dusty Womack reported:

¨        Final numbers for the State Team won’t be available until we get the rest of the results from the North, but preliminary numbers are:  North: 3 people; South: 4 people; and East: 5 people and the alternate.


COMMUNICATION: Communication Officer J.C. WORTHEN reported:




¨        The revised State Team Code of Conduct and Qualifier Tournament Rules were discussed; a standard tournament fee for Federation Qualifiers was also discussed.  A motion was made and passed to allow another month for discussion at the club level before voting on these items.




There being no more new business, President Womack reminded all that the next meeting would be on Oct. 17.  The meeting adjourned at 9:00 p.m.
