Meeting Minutes - November 2014

San Antonio Metropolitan League of Bass Clubs



November 19, 2014

Brenda Mareth, President, called the November 19th, meeting to order at 7:34 p.m.

Roll Call: There were 6 clubs present and 2 absent.  Clubs attending were:  Alamo, Helotes, Lone Star Lunkers, Rebel, SAPD, and Universal City.  Absent were Elite and SABC.

Secretary Report: The September minutes were distributed by email and were available at the meeting. The   Meetings were approved as presented. 

Treasurer's Report: Metro's financial report was provided by Bill Freeman and accepted.  We presently have $29,102.96 in the Metro account as of October statement.  City Tournament payouts are still outstanding.

Brenda reported TABC reported that on Dec 14th TABC will hold its meeting at The Bass Pro Shop @ I-10 at 10am.  She reported Ed Calderon is stepping down from president and they will be discussing nominations from officers for vote at the January meeting.  2015 TABC State tournament will be discussed and start preparations for the next tournament.  

Brenda gave a report from Texas Parks and Wildlife:

Calaveras/Braunig Largemouth Bass 14-inch minimum length and Falcon Alligator Gar   5-fish daily bag limit regulation change proposals were presented to the TPWD Commission and will be going out for public comment this spring.  

CPS Energy will be stocking thousands of 4-6 inch hybrid striped bass into Calaveras and Braunig after Thanksgiving.

Testing of fish and sediments from Amistad for contaminants by TCEQ came back with all levels being within normal ranges.

Under new business, Brenda announced elections for 2015 would be at the December meeting.  Nominations are:  

Chair - Brenda Mareth

Vice-Chair - Dean Amos

Secretary - Susan Osborne

Treasurer - Bill Freeman

There was a discussion on lack of attendance by clubs at the monthly Metro meetings.  There is a need for more club participation in both meeting attendance and club volunteers to help run the City tournament.  While in discussion, members suggested maybe there should be a by-law meeting to see if by-laws needed to be changed to have more club representation during meetings and tournaments.

There was a discussion on the extra money Metro has and it was suggested we have a tournament in March with the member clubs.  The tournament would be club vs. club and not against individual members.  Clubs are asked to discuss at their next meeting.

Brenda stated Metro rented scales for the City Tournament this year, but they were the kind we needed.  She will research types and costs for new scales and present at the next meeting.

We will do Holiday dinner at the December meeting.  RSVP if you are able to attend.
