NEW BUSINESS: Roger Timmons 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 brought up the fact that all of the permits for Lake Talquin for the year have already been applied for. John Beale mentioned that this could be changed, as long as we did it far enough ahead of time. At this time, the topic was only for discussion, it was not brought to a vote.

Billy Owens brought up, for the benefit of both members and pledges, that the tournament rules require that all fish be brought to the scales in weigh-in bags with water. It was also mentioned that the bags used are to be the bags that belong to the club. This is to alleviate the situation of people standing in line for extended periods of time with fish in a bag.

John Rudolph mentioned the Tallahassee Open (formerly the Talquin Open), and the fact that it would be held the Saturday following our club tournament.
