I am proud to announce with the huge efforts of our great new board and many other mentors, the rules are established (see here in the web site the published new rules), I think after we all review them thoroughly, we will find that they are fair, competitive and creates a format that will help the club flourish. The two Division format is a great way to proceed.
Congratulations to all the winners awarded last Saturday at the Annual Awards Banquet.
The First Shootout, Winter War starts February 14th through March 1st, the party will be on February 13th. The Jimmy Vaughn Memorial Corporate Challenge is coming up soon so keep that on your schedule as well.
We thank all the members who have signed up even prior to the season and prior to the rules revisions, perhaps trusting us to have a venue that will be great.
If you are on our email list –you will be receiving a lot of announcements and documents explaining detail how the club plans to go forward. Those of you that are not a member and want to join, just hit the membership key and sign up or tell us you are just interested.
Be sure to click on the “Fishing Events Tab” on the nefma.com website to register your boat to enter the Shootout Tournaments. Once again, if you are a Full General Member both divisions are included in your membership at no additional cost. If you are not a member and want to join any of our Shootouts they are $150.00 per division and includes all cash, prizes, fun and food.
Tight Lines, John Powers
