to "Guest": Please read Capt Duck's post, "What can we do to improve Striperboard and/or club meetings" from Feb 21, 2007. Maybe his post from ten years ago will help you understand why some of us anglers would like to get together informally, without monthly meetings, w/o charging dues, w/o club officers, and w/o a primary focus on tournament fishing. Just a dozen or so guys and gals who want to show up occasionally at a "club" member's house, maybe to help 'em rig their new boat, actually SHARE locations and hotspots(OMG!), fish with each other and talk fishin' while we smoke, drink and cuss. You have a very fine established fishing club, and I hope you see a steady increase in your membership, but please realize that one size does not fit all. Speaking for myself, in the words of Groucho Marx: "I'd never join any organization that would have me as a member." Some of us "non-joiners" are just looking to share our fishing info in a different way. We mean you no harm.
