COMMITTEE REPORTS:

TRUSTEES: No report.

GACF: The “Beef and Beer” held at the Black Cat in August was successful and everyone had good
time. They are holding their annual Chinese Auction in October.

SUNSHINE: No report of anyone sick.

FEDERATION: Meeting this Thursday, September 17.

NJ MARINE FISHERIES: No report.

WEBSITE/FACEBOOK: Need to post picnic pictures.

TOURNAMENTS: In-house tournaments are done for the season. No change to Land & Sea and Striper and Perch tournament.

COMMUNICATIONS: Mail was not picked up.

APPLICATIONS FOR MEMBERSHIP: No new applicants.

UNFINISHED BUSINESS: Need to sort out T-Shirt money. Not all sponsors have received their shirts. Sponsor Lindy Hops owes a check. Charlie determined that we could give FOD $600 at an upcoming ball game.

NEW BUSINESS: Need to order 150 T-Shirts for next year’s open tournament. Glenn Insurance wants to be on the T-Shirt next year. The Jersey Devils contacted the Club and offered tickets at reduced prices, which the club could resell at face value. We all decided this was not a good idea.

PICNIC: Lou gave a report, 88 adults attended. The food was great and all had a fun time. The helpers worked hard and were very organized. The club made money. The extra food will be given to the Community Food Bank of South Jersey. Next year we will reduce the amount of clams to 800 and crabs to 1 bushel. The Club agreed to give the Cologne Firehouse a $200 donation.

GOOD OF THE ORDER: No report.

Next meeting: Monday, September 28 at 8:00 PM. (Note: this will be the last meeting for this year at 8PM. Starting with the October meeting, we will have one meeting a month at 7:30PM.)

Respectfully submitted,
Bob Cusack Secretary (Note: Lou Schott will take over as recording Secretary as I will be in Florida until May.)
