Youth Report-John Lancaster (Bruce Flesher presented in John’s absence)

Conservation Report-Steve Jones(presented by Bruce Flesher in absence of Steve)

  • Bruce advises he is seeking insurance quotes for release boat.  So far, he has received one very high quote.  TIBF will continue seeking quotes and present them at next meeting.  Don Boeger advises he received tires quotes for release boat tire replacement.  Cost would be $302 or $508 for set of tires, depending on quality choice.  Tires are ok for this season. 

Communication Report-Steve Day

  • Steve is seeking TIBF member photos for upcoming banquet slide show.  Please email or notify Steve you have pics to share. 
  • Members can go to TIBF website http://www.idahobassfed.com for all updates and information.
  • TIBF members have free ad space available on website.


Tournament Report-Bruce Flesher

  • Go to www.idahobassfed.com for qualifier tournament application and rules.  Applications are also available at Western Marine, Tristate Marine and Howards Tackle.
  • TIBF is seeking member club feedback regarding Angler allocation for Divisionals.  There are 12 spots available on State Team.  Bruce has received feedback from IBM and IBA who both voted for percentage allocation.  He is seeking feedback from the balance of TIBF clubs. This will again be discussed at next meeting.
  • Bruce announced that the 2010 State Team is registered with Lowrance for discounted purchases.
  • TIBF State Team jackets are finished at Bulldog and need to be picked up by respective members.


Old Business

  • Member dues renewal incentive:  Still seeking ideas from member clubs.  TIBF receives $2 per renewal when completed by end of the year.  Shall we enforce the $5 late fee penalty?  Tammy will look into whether TIBF can program the online roster management system to automatically add late fee if registration occurs after December 31 deadline.   Jared Spicklemier suggested that perhaps highest member renewal count by club be awarded a prize which they in turn could raffle off as a fundraiser.  To reiterate, club dues must be registered and receive paid by TBF no later than December 31.  Bruce asks that all clubs provide additional input at next scheduled TBF meeting.


 New Business

  • Bruce advises that we TBF and Evinrude have an exclusive sponsorship.  For information regarding benefits and payout monies, go to TIBF website www.idahobassfed.com for details to be posted by Steve Day.
  • Banquet proceeds:  Bruce is seeking feedback from clubs regarding the banquet proceeds.  How shall we split the proceeds:  Youth, Conservation or State Team?  He is asking for club feedback at the next meeting.
