GIG HARBOR PUGET SOUND ANGLERS PRESIDENT’S MESSAGE OCTOBER 2020

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.

August 2020 President Message

GIG HARBOR PUGET SOUND ANGLERS PRESIDENT’S MESSAGE AUGUST 2020

Our next meeting scheduled for August 5, 2020 has been Canceled.  Hopefully by the time of our September 9th meeting, we will be in Phase 3 and can get together.

On Saturday, August 8, 2020 we will have our annual Dick Smythe member only outing. The outing will run from daylight to 1:00 PM. The weigh-in station will be located at Pt. Defiance boathouse and will be staffed from 8:00 AM – 1:00 PM. This outing is in place of our Annual salmon derby which was canceled due to COVID19. We decided to move up the Dick Smythe outing since A11 will be closed to all winter black mouth fishing on November 1, 2020 until next year’s salmon seasons are set. The outing is only open to all current 2020 paid members and family. If your membership dues are not current, please renew on-line or by mail prior to the outing. Memberships dues must be received by August 5 to be eligible to participate. John Hager of Southworth Marine has generously donated $500 for prize money, 1st – $250, 2nd – $150, 3rd – $100. Youth – $50. Sportco of Fife has generously donated gift cards for the mystery weight fish and youth runnerup prize.

There has not been a meeting since the March crab feed, so the jackpot remains at $260. Do not 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 $150 sponsored by John Hager of Southworth Marine.

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.
