> It was voted on to keep 8 lakes or go back to 7. It passed to go back to 7 lakes for the 2006 season.
> It was voted on that we will not fish on the July 4th weekend or on the weekend of June 4th .

> Election of the officers, as Dick Brown was retiring; Larry Barnes said he would be the president as long as he can also stay as the Tourney Director, as he enjoys doing that. It was voted and unanimously passed to elect Larry Barnes as the new Club President All other officers remained the same and the secretary was given a raise.

These issues were voted on:

> We will not have a night tournament in 2004.
> We will hold 8 club tournaments plus the 2-day classic but will not hold an open tournament.
> Substitutes- It was voted that if you want to be a sub you must be signed up in the spring, therefore any team that would like to use a sub during the season must use one from the list of available substitutes in lieu of bringing in someone new.
> If there is ever a tie for 1st place, it was voted that out of the 2 tied teams the one that has the biggest bass will be the winner.
> The pre-fishing rule was also changed, you can now fish a lake up to the day before a tournament.

Club Champs were given their plaques & jackets. Everyone voted on Sportsman of the year which once again was won by Don Lightcap. Our Sponsors were thanked by everyone & instead of having the banquet catered as in past years, the club bought the meat & everyone brought a dish to pass. There was a lot of very good food & it was also unanimous that we should do it this way again next year. We took the money that we would have used for the caterer to our sponsors, which gave us a lot of nice gifts for the members.
