October 2019 Newsletter


The last club meeting was held on Sept. 19th with 7 members in attendance.  The Secretary/Treasurer reports were accepted as presented.  Thanks to everyone who attended the meeting!

We reviewed the tournament results of the Upper and Lower Niagara River tournaments as well as 2019 Annual Award winners, 2019 Classic qualifiers and 2020 CTC team qualifiers. (See AOY Point Standings page for full listings.)

We previewed upcoming events:

Sept. 21st: 2019 Classic, Lower Niagara River, 7am-3pm out of the Ft. Niagara launch.  Butch Clark, Brett Hickey and Rick VonKramer have all reported that they will be unable to compete in the Classic.

Oct. 12th: 2019 Conesus Lake Open, state launch, 7am-3pm, $60 per boat entry fee, optional $10 per boat lunker pool.  Tournament registration: 6am-6:30am.  I’ll need assistance with boat check and weigh-in.  Thanks!

We also reviewed the minutes of the March 23rd meeting of the NYSBCF.

I announced that the club will not hold a meeting in October.  I will be out of state that week.  We will hold nominations for 2020 club officers immediately prior to election of officers at the November meeting.

On Sept. 21st, the 2019 Classic was held on the Lower Niagara River.  Harry Stringfellow won his 27th club tournament and his 6th Classic tournament with a limit of smallmouth bass weighing 12# 12.  Harry also had the tournament lunker, a smallmouth bass weighing 3# 15.  Outstanding tournament, Harry!!

I want to take this opportunity to personally thank Harry, members of the tournament committee and all club members who fished the tournaments for making 2019 another successful tournament season.  Thanks, everyone!!  Club membership may be shrinking in number, but the quality of our individual members remains outstanding!!

Don’t forget, we will NOT hold a meeting in October.  Our next club meeting will be on Thursday, November 21st, 7pm at Jr. Wilson’s.  At that meeting we will nominate and then elect 2020 club officers.  Please plan on attending.  (2020 club and state dues are also now payable and can be paid at the November meeting.  Club and state dues must be paid no later than our December meeting.)

Good hunting!!
