Proposed Change:

Section 1d.- 1e. Membership Requirements

d. Be voted on by the membership at the next meeting, with guest not present.
New member will be allowed to fish the current monthly tournament so long as his annual dues and tournaments fees are paid.

e. Shirt must be paid for at or before the next monthly meeting. Once dues and shirt are paid,
the new member will receive a free club hat and a copy of the club by-laws and tournament rules.

Also Remove Rule #5 from SOP

5. Each member is expected to obtain and wear a club shirt/hat.
New members should order these from the secretary immediately after being granted membership.


Potential new members should be allowed to fish tournament after being voted into club.
Also this rule will help cut the cost to a new member joining our club by giving him a club hat.
