I have had numerous inquiries from potential new members and still have 2 people looking for non-boaters. Hopefully most of the potential new teams will be at the March 1st meeting at Wildcat. For those that have paid membership for 2014 thank you. Membership is due at the first point event in April but early registration is very helpful. Also we are having a 1hr class on pike fishing at Cabelas March 1st at noon. I believe Tim and Dan will be the teachers. If you have any questions or suggestions please contact me. Looking forward to making 2014 a great year.

Thank you all and please support our sponsors,
