PRESIDENT’S MESSAGE
APRIL 2018

April’s meeting will be held on Wednesday, April 11, 2018, starting at 7 p.m. at Bass Pro in Tacoma. Our speaker will be Mark Gavin.

Member #244, Mike Mesaros name was drawn for March’s membership drawing and he was not present to win the $460, so April’s drawing will be for $670. Thanks to John Hager of Southworth Marine and Maggie Feagin Schauble of Windermere Real Estate for their support. The drawing is open to all current, paid members and members must be present to win.

Instead of having a club picnic in the late summer or early fall, this year we will be having a club dinner on May 9, 2018 at the Scottish Rite Temple, 817 South Vassault, Tacoma. This is the same location where we had our Christmas Party last December. Attendees will have their choice of a barbeque dinner for $10 or crab dinner for $20. Please RSVP and prepay for your dinner by contacting me (253-370-2230) or Roger Chapman (253-848-1640). You can reserve your spot and pay at the April GHPSA meeting. There will be no tickets available at the door. May 9 is our usual second Wednesday meeting night, and instead of having a meeting at Bass Pro, this event will be in place of the meeting, so bring your family and enjoy the dinner. In addition to our regular monthly raffle there will be a ladies raffle.

Looking ahead to summer, our derby will be Saturday, August 11, 2018. We are in need of volunteers and sponsors. A special thanks to member Pat Leahy of Leahy Law for sponsoring the third place prize. If you are interested in volunteering to help out at the derby or if you or someone you know would like to be a monetary sponsor, please contact any board member.

Please feel free to contact me or any board member with any questions or comments.

President

President’s Message for January 2018

GIG HARBOR PUGET SOUND ANGLERS PRESIDENTS MESSAGE JANUARY 2018 –CHRIS TREMBLAY

Happy New Year! I hope this message finds everyone well and that everyone had a good holiday season. As we start another year I want to thank John Keizer, Dave Johnson, and Jeff Zuniga for all their work on the board last year. 

The new year brings with it the time for our members to renew their membership and pay their annual dues. Don’t forget that at each monthly meeting all present and paid members are eligible for the monthly membership drawing for a cash prize of not less than $210 sponsored by John Haggar of Southworth Marine and new sponsor Maggie Feagin-Schauble of Windermere Real Estate.
Our next meeting is January 10, 2018 at the Tacoma Bass Pro Shop and our speaker will be Greg Mueller giving a presentation on Westport salmon fishing. Greg gave a great talk last year, you don’t want to miss this! 

Volunteers are needed for the Sportsman’s show and boat show. A sign-up sheet will be available at the meeting.

A cutthroat outing on Lake Washington is tentatively scheduled for January 20, 2018, weather permitting. We will meet and launch our boats at Gene Coulon Park and fish daylight to Noon. The group will then have lunch at Ivars. This is a fun, easy fishery.
