Important Information about Dues, KBN Meeting & End of Season Fish Fry - PLEASE READ THOROUGHLY

I just received word that BASS and BASS Nation are not changing the way dues are paid for 2016.  I will be collecting dues at the tournament this weekend and at our year end fish fry.  You can always mail them to me if you'd like.  I am looking into a PayPal type app that would allow you to pay dues and entry fees thru our website.  Technically the dues need to be paid by the end of November so the quicker you get them to me the better.  
$30 BASS Nation
$30 Kansas BASS Nation
You are on your own to stay current with BASS (BASSMASTER Magazine and member number)
The EKB dues may be raised for 2016.  It will be voted on at the fish fry / meeting this November.  The reason for raising the dues vote is to purchase better and more weigh-in equipment.  We are behind the times and standards required by the KDWP&T.  Please attend the meeting if you want your voice to be heard.  There are also a few topics that will be brought forward to think about before our first meeting of the 2016 season.  All topics, ideas ect. will be emailed for all to see if you are not able to attend.

Fall banquet for KS BASS Nation information-
The 2015 Fall Business Meeting and Awards Banquet is scheduled for November 21, 2015, in Salina at the Courtyard by Marriot. More information will follow.

All are welcome to attend.  Bring your families if you like.  There will be a couple of us there for the meetings and the guys that made the KBN State Team to accept their awards.  EKB is also in the running to get a prize for the most growth this year.  If you would like to attend please let me know asap since a head count will be needed for the diner.
Thank you!

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...
