7:00 AM – 3:00 PM
May tournament survey has been sent out, please take that at your earliest convenience. 
Buck will contact the T-shirt provider and send out an order link soon. 
Another note: I believe we are missing some emails on this distribution list we have been using. I believe we are missing the Kings emails, Monica noted her email was missing and Melissa as well. Send me any emails that are missing and I will create a new email distribution we can use.
The following teams attended: Huebel, Brown, Taylor, Anderson, Davis, Newsham, Wacker, Trevino, Summers 
We discussed the LBJ tournament results and the upcoming tournaments

Saturday jan 23 – Decker lake (paper photo) – 7-2:30



Saturday feb 20 – Fayette (paper photo), oak thicket
The club also discussed and approved spending $150 to sign up for a Zoom membership. Cliff will mail a check to me and I will register. 
We discussed a couple of options for scoring changes. Folks will gather their ideas, send to John and we will discuss them at the February meeting. If any changes are decided, the changes will apply retroactively to the January tournament results. 
Please send your contact information to John and he will create a new contact list since we are having issues with logging in to the website. 
Buck requested that we do a “roll call” of teams planning on attending the tournaments. This can be done the night before with a simple text or email chain. This is for safety reasons and so we can know who to keep an eye out for at the ramps and on the lake. 
I think that about covers it. If I left anything out, please just reply all! 
Hope to see y’all at Decker!

Happy birthday to our club President, Jeff (November 9th) and club Secretary, Lee (me)(November 17th). If I missed any birthdays or anniversaries, I apologize and send x’s & o’s!!

Happy October and Happy Halloween!!
We had our first ZOOM meeting this month; it was great to see those of you that attended. Hopefully, next month, we will have more members join the Zoom meeting, which will be on Tuesday, November 3rd. Watch for the Zoom invite from Emily. 

October tournament will be held Saturday, October 24th on Lake Travis beginning at 6:30 a.m. and ending at 2:30 p.m. with weigh in at Mansfield Dam.
– The Annual Christmas Party was brought up, but no plans were made. Please have some ideas ready to discuss during the November meeting.

– We discussed doing away with the club’s web site and using Facebook only. The web site is approx. $55/year. We will further discuss, next month, keeping the web site another year while we continue to discuss changes. Please give this some thought as we will discuss this again during the November meeting.

– It is the club’s plan to continue to meet via Zoom in November and December. In late December/early January 2021, we will discuss whether to continue Zoom or get back to IHOP. Only time will tell.

– Watch for emails from Emily for November Zoom meeting AND survey for November tourney.
Thanks everyone! Stay safe and well!
