Brenda reported that everyone's HELP is what made METRO another SUCCESSFUL year. AND Thanked everyone for all they do. And A BIG THANK YOU to everyone that helped and if she missed your name she apologizes.

Brenda was also thanked by everyone for all the time and effort she puts in to make it a success. 

    1. This year Brenda picked up donations for  the ice chest drawing it was a pelican ice chest donated by Butch Byrom with Frontier RV in Rockport, TX the $20.00 raffle brought in $680.00
    2. We also had items donated that we were able to put in the silent auction which brought in $887.00 into METRO's funds. 

  1. New Business:
    1. Discussion was brought up about doing caps next year instead of t-shirts. Brenda said, she will definitely consider this. Trying to get shirt sizes can be very difficult and caps would make it easier.
    2. Discussion was also brought up about switching entries to another angler name if the paid angler cannot make the city tournament. Scott Hutzler, made the motion that if you cannot make the tournament after you pay your entry fee. Your registration cannot be turned over to another non paid angler for his or hers registration fee. The registration will not be refundable. 2nd by Dean Amos. The floor voted and motion passed.
    3. Brenda brought up that she received a call from Del Rio prior to our City tournament. It appears Del Rio was approached by TABC on their upcoming 2017 State tournament. Del Rio gave them (TABC) a $ amount that they would donate to them. TABC was not happy with that and proceeded in letting DEL RIO know that TABC does more than METRO does in the fishing industry. So, in the future METRO will not give out a $ amount of what we receive from our major sponsors.  Brenda reported we had close to 167 anglers that fish the METRO tournament and all these anglers booked rooms, bought gas and food, etc. Not just for one or 2 months out of the year. But, that most of the clubs that fish city, fish Amistad 4 to 5 times during the year. Del Rio understood just asked that we not share with other organizations, to keep from such organizations calling and asking for the same thing they gave METRO.
    4. Brenda reminded all clubs that nominations for the 2017 officers would take place at the upcoming November meeting and voted on at the Dec meeting. Brenda asked if someone would step up for secretary Susan Osborne is stepping down, she has to much on her plate at this time with her very busy job. Susan Osborne has done a wonderful job at being secretary for METRO.  

Woody Woodruff nominated himself for treasurer.

  1. Clubs reported on their upcoming tournaments:

All clubs fished city. The results will be attached.

Motion was made to Adjourn meeting was adjourned at 8:40pm
