Between the weather and weeks of illness I finally got on the water recently after a two month dry spell. Two months seems like a very long time but luckily I had spent some time keeping the boat and tackle in top condition and ready to go at a moments notice. The tricky part was remembering all the little details to prepare for a day on the lake. Maybe a neat little checklist would help. It felt great to be out on the water again even if the fish didn’t cooperate.
I also want to remind everyone that our club is a club. A club can be loosely defined as a group of people organized to share a common purpose or interest. Our club is “organized” in order to legally exist. Your board of directors manage the “business” of that organization. The board members are not teachers, lecturers, or entertainers. The value and wealth of the club comes from the sharing of our common interest and that sharing comes in the way of participation. In all the clubs and meetings I’ve attended through many years I have yet to hear a member comment that had no value. We’re all ordinary folks and friends so jump up and through your two cents in. I can’t wait…
