Tournament #5 - LaCygne on June 13
Our next tournament is this Saturday at LaCygne! Please be at the marina ramp early enough to pay your entry. We will draw for position by 5 so that we can all get launched and take off by 5:30. If you show up after 5:00 you will be added to the bottom of the order.
$25 per angler
Draw- 5 a.m.
Take-off- 5:30 a.m.
Weigh-in - 3 p.m.
Bass Pass tournament- (2 fish of your limit can be 15-18") all other fish must be 18"+
PLEASE WAIT YOUR TURN AT THE WEIGH-IN. ONLY 4 ANGLERS AT THE TANK AT ONE TIME. This will help keep the fish healthy and in your circulating livewells longer. It will be warm so remember your ice, Stay Alive and to keep your water circulating to help the fish that you catch.
The tournament committee will be having a meeting next week to discuss and revamp our entry collection, draws and, more importantly, our weigh-in procedure. We will present the plan(s) to the club for a vote if needed. A change is needed so we will be acting quickly. Every change will be a positive and make life easier for everyone.
If you would like to start paying your dues for next year I will start collecting it. If you pay a little here and there before the year end tournament you will not have the expense around Christmas. I need to have our roster completed by Nov. 30, 2015 and this will help speed the process up. A meeting date will be announced either at the tournament or via email early next week.
Thank you and good luck this weekend!

Next Meeting - March 16 at Mondo Tackle
It's time for our March meeting. We will be having it at Mondo Tackle on March 16 with a 6:30 p.m. start time. If you have not sent your BASS Nation dues of $30 to me yet you can bring it with you or pay it at the ramp on March 29 at Lake of the Ozarks.
We will talk about the upcoming tournament, rules for 2015, new format for KBN tournaments, classic berth possibilities, KBN board positions and a plan to collect dues for next season this year.
The new measuring boards are in and I will distribute them at the first tournament.
Please come if you can and bring ideas, comments or concerns.

Report from KBN Spring Meeting
All qualifiers, Mr.Bass and other qualifying tournaments will be run as a Pro-Am which means all boaters MUST sign up with a non-boater (you are not allowed to fish alone) and the boater will have full control of the boat for all tournament hours.
EKB was brought up quite a few times during the meeting, which is a good thing! Keep up the good work!
There is a new incentive program within KBN. The three clubs that gain the most members during the year will receive -
1st - 109lb thrust Motorguide
2nd - Fury prop
3rd - Case of oil
We can do what we want with it if we win. Sell, raffle, auction...
