Old Business:
Annual Banquet date to be February 16th 2019 . Location still to be determined but we are leaning towards the new event center at Wahooz in Meridian.
TBF has made some changes at the national level. They will pay out more money for states with bigger numbers fishing the qualifiers. For example if Idaho brings 20 boats and Montana only brings 10 the payouts will be more for the idaho semifinals top anglers than Montana. Also if the Top finishing co-angler catches more weight than the top Boater he or she will have a choice to fish the finals as a boater or co-angler.
