GIG HARBOR PUGET SOUND ANGLERS PRESIDENT’S MESSAGE December 2020

Our annual Christmas Party scheduled for December 4, 2020 has been Canceled.

Greetings from the board. Here is an update of what the club will look like going forward until we can have face to face meetings again. We are going to have a member only raffle in place of our annual Christmas party. The raffle will be limited to members with paid 2020 memberships. As an incentive to get members involved again, we are reaching out to any member who has not paid their 2020 dues to renew for 2021 by December 8th and you will be included in the December raffle. Dues for 2021 can be paid either on-line at gigharborpsa.org or a check mailed to our P.O. Box. The December raffle will be held on December 9th. Prizes will be cash, certificate for Anthony’s dinner, rod & reel, boat bag and travel packs. Winners will be notified by email or phone and be published in the January Presidents message.

The board has also made the decision to roll the 2020 volunteer list and Big Fish award to 2021. If you volunteered in 2020, you will be added to the 2021 roll call. I have not received any big fish entries this year, so save them and submit for 2021.

Since it appears, we will not be able to have face to face meetings in early 2021, we are planning to have ZOOM meetings starting January 2021 and moving forward. The guest speaker for January will be Mark Riedesel from Fish Northwest.

The club has received a new shipment of hats for sale for $15.00, let me know if you would like to purchase one.

The board would like to take this opportunity to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas and a HEALTHY and Happy New Year.

Our next meeting scheduled for October 14, 2020 has been Canceled.

In all reality it appears we will not have an in-person meeting until next year. October is normally the month we nominate and vote on the next year’s officers. We will need to have a President, Vice-President, Secretary, Treasurer and Membership chairman. If you are interested in volunteering for one of these positions, please let me know. We will be able to vote on their nominations at our first meeting.

The 2020 board looks forward to working with all of you this year. Please contact any one of us if you have any comments, questions, or concerns.
