Cowen Lake Petition

Cowen Lake Petition

Please note there are 5 documents attached to this email.  I put an example of a petition that I signed to help Cowan Lake to become Idle only.  There is a public hearing on 12/29/15 that Al and I will be attending to try to convince Chief Mike Miller at the division of watercraft to consider Cowan Lake going to idle only.  This lake is the link to get other lakes in the state to idle only.  Fisherman have as much right to be on those lakes as sail boats do.  We will not try to say those folks should be limited to be clear.  We just want to say that there is no reason that Bass Fisherman should be limited either.  We need your support in signing this petition.  I need as many as you can get signed and mailed back to me by 12/28/15 as possible.

Please get your members, friends to sign the petition in any color ink other than black.  If you have a color scanner you can email the petitions back to me in Color or mail them to me at 4109 Roland Creek Drive, Cincinnati OH, 45245.  I want to show up with as many signed petitions as I can get to go along with a physical presence.  I think in total we have about 15 people showing up.  If you are free and can come please call me for details.  I would love as much support from our membership as we can get.  So if you can make the hearing I attached that information as well.  I know Columbus will have members there to help out.

Thanks,

Danny Ryan

CBM prepares dinner and serves at Hartley Hawgs Awards Banquet

Hartley Hawgs Banquet

CBM got asked to help out at the Hartley Hawgs awards banquet so the parents could enjoy evening with their future fishing pro.  CBM team had no problem stepping in and providing he assistance.  This all began in the back kitchen where they prepared a full spaghetti with meatball dinner, included salad and desert for I am guessing 80 to 100 people.

Many Thanks was given out by parents and children to CBM members as they went through the line.  CBM was glad we was asked to help and it looked to have turned out as a fun night for them.  They had plenty of awards and prizes to be handed out.
