Hartselle BassMasters News August, 2016

1. Congratulations to Dave McCormack and Craig Skinner for winning the Pickwick Lake tournament 7/16/2016 and to Alan Guyse and Rahn Hogeland for winning the Wheeler Lake tournament 8/13/2016.

2. Our next tournament will be on Pickwick Lake out of Natchez Trace launch on 9/24/16. Tournament times will be decided at our next meeting.

3. The next club meeting will be at 1830 on 9/12/16 at Mr. Henry’s.

4. The Board of Directors met on 8/24/16 to set up the tournament season for 2016-2017. Also we discussed several requests for by-law changes and the following decisions were made:

Amendment One

Change the current rule for number of fish in live well to reflect the tournament limit. The total number of fish kept in live well shall be six (6). Culling must begin with the 7th fish caught. All culling will take place on the water.

Amendment Two

Discontinue the mandatory 12 hour night tournaments. Night tournaments will be equally divided into either 12 hour or 8 hour tournaments.

These two amendments will be voted on at our next meeting and if passed by majority vote will be enforced beginning with the November 2016 tournament.

I encourage all members and any potential new members to attend our next meeting.
