Meeting Minute - July 2018

San Antonio Metropolitan League of Bass Clubs



July 18, 2018

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

  • Roll Call: Clubs attending were: Alamo, Flying Anglers, Helotes, Rebel, SABC, SAPD, and UCBC.  Clubs absent were Elite and STBC.
  • Secretary Report: The secretary presented the minutes from the June meeting by email and had copies available at the meeting.  Bill made a motion to accept, Mitch seconded and motion passed to accept minutes.
  • Treasurer's Report: Bill Freeman presented treasurer report.  Beginning Bank Balance was $37,584.49 One outstanding check to National Park Service for City Tournament. Ending checkbook balance is $37,559.49.  Ending bank balance is $37,584.49.  
  • Announcements:
    1. TABC - Next meeting will be July 28 at Cabela's - starting at 10:00.  Deadline for TABC registration entries is June 30th.
    2. We are calling for all sponsors for the City Tournament.  Sponsorships will be advertised on a banner which we will display during City Tournament and we display sponsor logo's on Metro Facebook and Metro website.
    3. Donation items are needed for the door prizes. We will keep it with each club donating $25.00 item for door prize. But are seeking other items as well. If you know of anyone that would be willing to donate let Brenda know and she can get it picked up or members can bring it to the next meeting.
    4. Registration forms will be mailed out to representatives this month and be available at the August meeting.  Susan asked that clubs take up all entries from their respective members and submit entry forms, along with a spreadsheet of members (she will provide spreadsheet) and to pay with one club check.  Deadline for registration (without late fees) will be September 25th.
    5. Brenda stated that weigh-in will be at the Weigh Station at the Marina.
    6. Brenda encouraged clubs to consider having their raffle fundraisers in conjunction with the City Tournament.  Clubs can sell tickets at registration on Friday and at the Saturday dinner. 
    7. Saturday's dinner was originally scheduled to be at the Civic Center, but the Del Rio Chamber representative let us know the Center has already been rented for the evening.  Brenda is working with them to secure another venue. Rudy's BBQ, who is catering the event, was discussed as a location, but there are concerns there would not be enough room and that the awards program would be hard to have there.  We will continue to look for an appropriate venue.
  • Business: 
    1. Perry Orne, who is the current webmaster, has asked that we use another credit card for the upkeep and fees for the website.  Currently Metro does not have an organizational credit card.  It was decided that Bill Freeman would get a debt card that ties into the bank account.  The card would be used for purchases as approved by the Officers.
    2. At the June meeting a motion was made to keep the lake off-limits the week (Monday - Friday) prior to the tournament.  The vote tied and the decision was that we would vote again at the July meeting. Bill Freeman again made a motion that the lake would be off-limits the week prior to the tournament.  Leonard Gonzales seconded the motion.  The motion was approved with Alamo, Helotes, SABC, and UCBC voting for the motion and Flying Anglers, SAPD, and Rebel voting against the motion. 
    3. Metro received a letter from a 16 year-old, Mathew Perry, an angler whose goal is to be in the Elite Series. He has competitively fished for 4 years and has been selected as a junior leader for the 2018 Bass Camp on Lake Fork.  The cost for him to participate is $600 in entry and expenses and he asked for financial help.  Susan made a motion to give him $300 to help pay expenses.  Fred Beard seconded the motion.  The motion passed.  Bill will give a check to Brenda to present to Matthew.
    4. Johnny Barnes brought back up a discussion we had in the beginning of the year about Metro providing money to Clubs who place in the top 3 of the City Tournament.  While the top 3 clubs are awarded jerseys to their top 8 anglers, no money is given to clubs who place.  There was discussion that we know this year we have the money available to include in the budget and we should invest in our clubs.  Susan made a motion that the top 3 clubs at the City Tournament would be awarded $1000 for 1st, $700 for 2nd, and $500 for 3rd.  Johnnie seconded the motion.  The motion passed.
    5. Questions arose about if we gave Falcon Lake a chance to bid on the City Tournament, because James at Falcon Lake Tackle told several people he never saw a proposal.  Brenda told us that she had submitted a proposal to the County Commission Office, but never did get a reply from them.
