This was an election year and we would like to welcome our new officers. They are: President: Rick Russell, Vice President: Luke Walker, Treasurer: Steve Winters, Secretary: Brian Gilson. We are looking forward to a great term and we thank them for their service!

Due to rising fish disposal fees, family membership (spouse & all children 16 & under) costs had to be raised to $30 per year.
Payout amounts remain unchanged.

Open Class Change
Open Class is ranked by numbers and now has an optional Big 10 side pot.
Big 10: $5.00 per person. Every member must be registered for the Big 10 Side pot in order for the team to win. The biggest 10 fish (by weight) will win. Payout is for the top place.

Sportsman Class Change
The format for Sportsman Class is still a Big 20. The new 2016 change is an addition of a Numbers side pot.
Sportsman Class Numbers Side pot is $5.00 per person. Every member must be registered for the side pot in order for the team to win. Fish count is based on total legal fish per boat.

Update - April 2014


Open Class is now limited to a maximum 3 adult shooters on a boat for tournaments.
Kids 15 and under do NOT count towards the number of shooters in Open Class.
No change to Sportsmans Class.

We've also simplified our membership. Instead of having a limited 2-day membership and a pricey full family membership, we eliminated the 2-Day option and reduced the price of the full to $20.
Remember, you will automatically become a member of MUCC as well, so you will be supporting two great MI organizations for the price of one!
There is strength in numbers, and we want all of the tournament participants to be part of the team.

Do not forget to sign up for the Open Class Team of the Year points race at the first tournament that you attend in order to be eligible for the 2014 Team of the Year.

Seth Rhodea is our new President, Steve Winters is our new Vice President, Zach Corradi is our new Treasurer and Brian Gilson remains our Secretary.
Thanks to all that attended the meeting and see you all soon at our first tournament!
