Call to Order

1900, the meeting was called to order by Danny Peter.

Ten active members were in attendance. I want to thank everyone that showed up for a great turnout.

Membership

We currently stand at 16 active/participating members, with eight boaters and eight co-anglers. Brian “the General” Jenkins will be putting together a new roster soon.

We do have openings for six more boaters and three more co-anglers which would put the club at our decided maximum number of active members, which is 25. 14, and 11 respectively allowing us two teams at the Top 6, Georgia Bass Nation (GBN) state events. Co-angler membership is currently on hold until the boater number increases. It briefed that there is one potential boater and three co-angler prospects. The co-anglers will be invited to all club meetings but remain on standby status until boater positions are filled. Should anyone have or know anyone that may be interested in becoming an active club participant (especially boaters) please have them visit the LCA website to enquire about membership.

Several special shout-outs to Brad “Big Fish” Robinson for overall big fish on days 1 and 2. If you’re only going to catch one keeper a day that’s how to do it.  Also, Danny Peter and John Doolittle for catching fish on a very windy day 2 without a trolling motor.  The entire table at Friday’s LCA group dinner also won the Arrowhead weekly Trivia night competition, beating out some of the brightest minds Tennessee had to offer.

NEW

  • LCA is looking into having a spouse/significant other including dinner sometime in late winter or early spring.
  • Voting was held and it was determined the maximum number of hooks allowed on an umbrella/A-rig during LCA club tournaments is 5 or fewer.
  • One of Tim Carini’s two Executive Board (EB) positions will be assigned to another individual.  A new LCA EB Treasurer or Secretary will be assigned soon to lighten the workload on Tim. Please submit nominations to the club President Danny Peter for EB consideration and club vote.
  • It was discussed that known boaters in good standing from other clubs will not be required to finish the two-tournament probationary period before being voted on for club membership.
  • New prospective boaters from outside circles will still be required to fish two probationary tournaments as a boater prior to a determination by club vote. Also, the paired co-anglers from the probation tournaments’ input should play a significant role in the yes or no membership decision.

CLOSING

No further business was discussed, the meeting was adjourned at 2020.
