September 8, 2014

The meeting opened with a salute to the flag and a moment of silence for our troops with President Jim Van Daley presiding. The minutes from August 25, 2014 were read and approved with one correction to the in-house Bluefish results. The treasurer’s report was not read:
Ending balances: Charity Account: N/A General Account: N/A Raffle: $N/A


Trustee: Nothing to report
GACF: The Millville speedway will support the GACF on October 1 by giving 20% of the proceeds to the GACF. Entry fee is $250.
Sunshine: No report of anyone sick.
Federation: There will be a meeting on 9/11.
NJMFC: Looking for public opinion on what the Striped Bass limits should be. Our area preferred 1 fish.
Website: Posted minutes.
In House: Done for the season.
Open: Done for the season

Striper and Perch: ongoing, 2 weigh-ins to date.

COMMUNICATIONS: Received a flyer from Field of Dreams with pictures from the “Day on the Bay” event.


UNFINISHED BUSINESS: Need to coordinate with “Field of Dreams” to pick a date to donate the $500 the club approved to give them. Charlie gave Jim the permit for the raffle and Jim will take it to Port Republic’s City Manager for approval.

NEW BUSINESS: The club voted and approved for a new plaque for the most outstanding member of the year and will get presented at the Installation Dinner.

PICNIC: Lou gave a report on the picnic. There were 68 people attended. There was enough money collected from both the 50-50 and entry fees to cover the cost of the picnic. There was very little food left; the burgers and dogs were sold to Nancy Reese. Need to change the flyer to end the event at 4PM. Winners of the dessert contest:

1st Nancy Reese
2nd Kate Hackney
3rd (tie) Zoey Gross and Ann Milza

Elections: Are coming up – time to start thinking of names to nominate.

GOOD OF THE ORDER: Nothing reported.

Next meeting: September 22, 2014 at 8:00 PM.

Respectfully submitted,
Bob Cusack, Secretary
