Problems in Oconomowoc04/07/14
I have just gotten off of the phone with the chief of police in Oconomowoc. they are having issues with individuals dumping fish along the side of a road. he understands that the chances that it is one of our members is remote, but wanted to get the word out/
the first occurance was about a week ago along Lang Road (a dead end road).
the second was on McMahon road near Pennsylvania Street sometime Saturday night.
These two spots are very close to one another. I am not familiar with the area, but Ashippun Lake and the Rock river are fairly close (not sure if either are shootable). I am going under the assumption that the person(s) responsible live somewhat close to that area since they were dumped that close together and they are not WBA members (since none of our members would be so foolish to do that).
Along with an angry farmer and some irritated residents, they have also had to call out a very angry city crew with a front end loader and dump truck to remove the fish.
So, i am asking those members in the area to please keep an eye out and bring this up if you see guys out shooting. Not only will they be nailed with littereing, but a hefty restitution fee for the clean-up also. If you would happen see someone dumping, call the police and turn them in. there is zero tolerance for people like this.
Well, the new Paypal subscription has been added to the membership page. So, if anyone hasn't become a member for this yeear yet and wants to be the sacrificial lamb.....

2014 Annual Meeting Update10/16/13
Hard to believe it is getting that time of year already. But, I am looking at Saturday January 4th for the annual meeting this year. Dr. Jeb Verhalen is in the planning stages of the location, and i will be developing a meeting agenda as the weeks click by.
What i need from you guys are the following:
1. Lake bids for 2014 tournament schedule (I will be tweaking the big form for hosting a tournament slightly)
2. Topics of discussion for meeting to be added to agenda. Issues, concerns, etc etc
3. New officer elections if there are any (if you are going to challenge for a position, i would very much like to know beforehand)
4. Promotional events to add to the calendar (like the Madison fish expo, previously presented at the Cabela's open house, etc)
I have a bow left from the Missippippi River tornado/hurricane/washout tournament that we can very easily raffle away as a door prize. We will also be awarding the Team of the Year and Big Fish awards for the year. I also have a couple fun things up my sleeve for this year, unless everyone prefers to be serious.
So, mark your calendar accordingly and let's put together a plan for a great year.
