monthly meeting was held on January 11, 2012, at Perkins Family
Restaurant in Olean, NY.
Banquet Set to Go
Banquet Chair, Sharon Green wants to
remind everyone that they must make a banquet reservation
so that we can have an accurate seating count and start on
time. This year’s banquet will be held February 4 at
the Old Library restaurant in Olean. Drinks are at 5:00 PM
and the dinner will start promptly at 6:00 PM.
Wade and Sue McClurg will be running the Chinese Auction once
again. Other than our grill raffle, this is our only fundraiser
for the year so members are asked to donate items to the banquet
for auctioning. In the past some of the most popular auctions
have been for pkids and women’s items so everything
doesn’t have to be related to fishing. Please do Wade
and Sue a favor and contact them early if you plan to donate.
This allows them to have everything set up for a smooth auction
and a better time for everyone.

Saturday Meeting Set for April
After last year’s success we will again hold a meeting
at the Clarion Hotel in Batavia on Saturday, April 14 for
our northern members - hosted by one of our sponsors, Ken
Golub. The format will be similar to last year and run from
10 AM – noon with refreshments and a swap meet to follow.
There will be a guest speaker from Power Marine Services to
speak about engine maintenance and other issues.
This will be a very important meeting,
as we will discuss by-law changes that would eliminate the
club’s 40-member cap and the five-function requirement.
Members in attendance will decide.
The next meeting will be held
at the Olean Perkins Restaurant on Wednesday, March 14, 2012
at 7 PM.
