2018 looks to be a good year for the WCCC. We had our Kick-Off Meeting on January 13 and had 63 folks show up. The club is meeting at the Yantis Community Center this year. Club meetings start off with a “Meet & Greet” over light snacks for the first 30 minutes. This gives members a chance to get to know one another and shake hands. There is always a mystery person among the group to see how many shake their hand and one of those will receive a door prize. We had 7 new members to join at the meeting. Welcome Gary & Diane Morphew, Roy Gustafson, Steve Roll, Steve Hess, and Robert & Robin Brooks to the club.
Meeting topics were about taking care of club business with membership dues and T-shirt sales. We covered some up coming events and had a Part One Presentation about Crappie Equipment (Rod & Reels). This is something members asked for last year in a survey and we’ll hold Part Two at a later meeting this year. We had a short presentation about 3 things to know about a crappie rod and 3 things to know about the reel. Danny Kemp and David Sale brought their rod & reels and told about what works for them. Bruce Allen was our Special Guest Speaker and told about their Fishing Club “Lake Fork Anglers”. Bruce also talked about his club taking disabled veterans fishing last year. The meeting wrapped up with the 2017 financial report.
