50/50 $40 Terry Hall

In closing this being my last meeting minute post I will be doing.  I look back at when I joined CBM in October of 2013.  The club didn’t have a website functioning at the time and we put together this website which has grown over 350 post through the past 6 years.

I have to say that this club is the “real deal” Bass club in Ohio.  It has a great group of members who work very hard to support the sport of fishing for both for the youth and the environment.  When it comes time to fish you will also find them plenty competitive.  My only regret is not having joined them sooner when I moved here in 1996.

I have my two son’s wedding’s next year in May and July and not sure how much fishing I will be able to do.

James Maynard will take over as Secretary in 2020 and I am sure he will manage this very well.  I will help and support him and the club as well but may not be able to make every event.

Thanks & Happy Holidays,
