GIG HARBOR PUGET SOUND ANGLERS
PRESIDENT’S MESSAGE
DECEMBER 2018

The December meeting will be our annual Christmas Party on Friday, December 7, 2018 at the Scottish Rite in Tacoma (817 South Vassault Street). At the Party we will have a Women’s Raffle, our general raffle, and Santa will be visiting so mark your calendars and bring the family! We will also have the prize drawing for all members who volunteered at our various events throughout the year.

That same weekend on Saturday, December 8, 2018 we will have our annual Dick Smythe Derby. The Derby will run from daylight to Noon where everyone will meet at the Tides Tavern in Gig Harbor for lunch.

This is my last President’s Message and I want to take a minute to thank everyone who helped sponsor our club this past year. Thank you to Proper British Bacon for catering. Thank you to Pat Leahy and Leahy Law for sponsoring a derby prize. Thank you to John Hager of Southworth Marine and Maggie Feagin Schauble of Windermere Real Estate for sponsoring the membership drawing. I would also like to specially thank all members who volunteered to help out at our events, our club wouldn’t be what it is without your support.

New officers will take over starting in January 2019. We are still looking for volunteers for the Membership and Raffle Chair positions. Please contact incoming President Frank Baker if you are interested in volunteering for one of these Board positions.

Member #199 (and incoming President) Frank Baker was drawn for the November Membership Drawing and won $460! The drawing will restart in January. Again, 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.

Thank you everyone for reading my messages each month. I’ve enjoyed being the Gig Harbor Puget Sound Anglers President this year. Thank you again for all of your support.

GIG HARBOR PUGET SOUND ANGLERS
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.
