December Presidents Message for Gig Harbor – Tacoma PSA
President: Art Tachell
Our guest speakers were Bill Batson, Keller Batson of Batson Enterprises makers of custom fishing rod components and Chris Wegelben with Prolite who assisted.
The speakers gave a great presentation on Rod building, design, components and engineering.
Their custom rods and components are sold worldwide.
Bill also donated a rod that was raffled off at the club meeting and the lucky winner was Tom Sullivan. Congrats Tom.
Batson enterprises are great supporters of PSA. Thank you Bill!
Once again, our cash award for our membership drawing went unclaimed so the value will be $480.00 at our next drawing. Thank you to John Hagar of Southworth Marine for sponsoring the membership drawing.
This years club nutrient enhancement project in partnership with the Auburn chapter delivered 1500 Chinook and Coho Carcasses from the Voight’s creek hatchery to the upper watershed of the Puyallup River providing valuable nutrients to the many aquatic species there.
December 1st will be our annual club holiday party, a way to thank all the volunteers that contributed so much to the club and the resources we enjoy every day. There will be a traditional holiday dinner, entertainment by the Stadium High choir singing carols, Mr. and Mrs. Claus to hand out gifts to children and pictures of course.
Our Guest speaker for our January club meeting will be the one and only Todd Girtz which is always a great time and very informative.
Our newly elected board members.
