NEW BUSINESS:There was no new business to be brought before the club.

OLD BUSINESS: Roger Timmons again brought up the possibility of modifying a summer Lake Talquin tournament this year to make it 2 half-days rather than 1 full day; possibly Saturday morning and Sunday morning.This was brought up due to the extreme mid-day heat during the summer.John Vickers mentioned that this had been discussed many times in the past, and had never come to fruition.There are some members who do not want to fish local tournaments on Sunday for various reasons.Dallas Johnson brought up the possibility of fishing a one-day split tournament, where the members would come in around noon, have lunch, sit around awhile, and then go back out and fish until 6:00 or so.It was asked if the fish that were caught in the morning would be weighed at noon.Dallas mentioned that they could be, or they could be left in the live wells.John Vickers stated that FWC does not care for the double weigh-in format, as they want the leeway to be at the weigh-in and they donít want to have to come out twice.It was also mentioned that, with only one weigh-in, it may not be a good idea to leave the fish in the live wells for that many hours during the heat of summer.At that point, Rodger withdrew his proposal.

DOLLAR POT:Won by Justin Sutton
