The vote was held between 5 lakes for Fall 2 Day and narrowed down to Logan Martin and Hartwell.

Danny will email out a poll to let the club decide which lake and then we will check lodging and decide the dates.

As always if you have a conflict, or have to drop out, immediately contact your partner
AND the TD and let them know. This is required for ANY club tourney, please.

Boat Insurance
Please get this in ASAP if you have not to Andy Shields.

Moved last month’s tournament to Altoona and had our service project after.  Thanks to all who participated and to those who brought their boats to all this to happen.

The top 6 will be a Tugaloo on Hartwell.  Brian will get together lodging.

GBN 2nd quarter notes were emailed out.

2024 GBN will be at Eufala on October 25/26

Buckner suggested we look at a lake clean-up contest for the next club conservation project.  We can include families, make it a competition, and cook out after.

How do we raise the visibility of the club?  Benefit tournaments? Facebook?

  • Buckner will talk to Tim about how hosting a tournament for us would work.  Details and fees involved.

Tim might be able to fish at Chatuge.  Dean is looking at the middle of June before his boat is ready.

Vote for the July tournament between Blue Ridge and Sinclair.

  • 6 votes for Blue Ridge.  2 for Sinclair. (Andy will be at Sinclair anyway and will be sure to spend the day sending pictures of all the 5lb plus bass he catches to all those on Blue Ridge getting dinks!)

Weigh-ins for July-September will be moved back to 2 pm.  It’s hot!

No further business was discussed, and the meeting was adjourned at 8:04 pm.
