John Rudolph advised that the club’s checking account had been moved to Farmers & Merchants Bank, where we will not be charged a monthly fee even if we do not use the debit card.

It was then filed with the Secretary of State’s office. John also announced that Bob McCann’s ashes would be spread on Lake Talquin on 03/08/14. We hope to have the club well-represented as Bob’s remains are laid to rest in the spot where he caught the largest bass of his life.
