Message From The President:
Hope everyone had an enjoyable Memorial Day. I also hope everyone took a few moments from their traditional Memorial Day activities to reflect on the sacrifices made by the brave men and women of the Armed Forces to protect this great country and it's causes. If you didn't,
I encourage you to do that now. Looks like summer is here and so are our shortened tournaments. Don't forget that June, July, and August are early weigh-in's. With summer and our early weigh-in's also comes the need to stay hydrated. That means water, water, and more water.
It's also a good idea to carry a small towel that you can dip in the cooler water and apply to your neck for a quick cool down. I've also found that taking one of those small freezer packs and placing it under my Hawg Hunter cap actually cools my whole body down. Try it and you'll see.
This next little bit is for those Hawg Hunters that we haven't heard from for some time. We miss you guys and really would like to see you at the next meeting. If you can't make it, give me or one of the E-board members a call. We would love to hear from you. Wow, did you realize that we are more than half way through the fishing year! You know what that means
.. That's right,
the E-board will be looking for potential nominees for next year's
E-board pretty soon. Please give it a serious thought when called. It really isn't that difficult. Well
..most of the time anyway. The end of the year also means that we will be voting on proposed changes to the constitution and by-laws, tournament rules, and fish-off rules. I know many of you have already been putting your thoughts together. Well, that's about all I have for this month. Keep your lines in the water and out of the trees.

Minutes of the Meeting:
The May Pensacola Hawg Hunters meeting was brought to order at 7:00 P.M. on May 16, 2007 at Founaris Brothers Restaurant. President Kevin Simmons presided. There were 19 members present.
Kevin discussed the steak cookout last month at Apalachicola.
Dave Dyess mentioned he is having a grill built for the club to use for these cookouts. The total spent from the special fund for the cookout for salad and potatoes was $34.
Kevin has been under the weather and was unable to call the members that have been missing but is adamant he will before the next meeting.
Jim Bailey Sr. mentioned that Rick Bankston is a new addition to his web page. Also, individual river reports will be launched soon on Jim's website.
Kevin also discussed recruiting for non-boaters and solicited any ideas.
Pretty slim this meeting
there was just some discussion about the parking at the boat ramp at Black Creek which led to discussion about what time to get there to launch because there is another club tournament there at the same time.
