Get ready for our Fall Tournament which will be held on October 13 this year. We are calling it the “Frank Skillman Fall Tournament” in honor of our dear friend and member Frank Skill man. He is missed very much by everyone who knew him. Look for your applications in with your bulletin emailing if you get your bulletins in that manner. Be sure to read in the September or October Bulletins on how to get your copy.
It is time to think about who you would like to lead your club in 2013. We need Board Member candidates. Please think about these important positions and consider giving something back to your club and fellow members by volunteering your time. Also your December Bulletin will be the last one I prepare. We need someone to step forward and help with this position also.
Be thinking about getting your Smith Mountain Striper Club information from our soon be to developed website. Even if you do not have a home computer, there are always friends or places like the library which can be used. We really do need to move forward into the digital age. The benefits are many.
I also need help with getting volunteers for the Nomination Committee, the Chili night, helping Franklin County support the kids on a derby day (Waid Park), our November Fish Fry, and lastly our Annual Banquet in December. Now is the time for all members to step forward and help share the load.
Now go fishing, Bob
