What should be a clubs priorities in bass fishing, entry level? advanced? Where should a club focus it's efforts on? The many? or the few? What is a solid size (members) for a club. Finally what are the pros and cons of such a club?

That has to be one of the all time best lines, but you did have the perfect set up...:Iconrotfl:Iconrotfl:Iconrotfl

Sorry Elway...
Yeah that was the perfect set up. Thats why I could not let a opportunity like that to slam Elway get away.

Priorities should be to promote the ideas of angling with the attitude of "sharing knowledge" and set about building an organization where the ideals and mission would be the first priority of membership.The purpose of the club tournaments is to be fun and the sharing of knowledge and teaching with one another. Competition should be secondary to these goals.Non-boaters and boaters should be paired by drawing at the club meeting prior to the tournament so that club members have a opertunity to fish with many different members and can teach and be taught with hands-on fishing.The sharing of knowledge and skills helps each angler reach his or her goals.

Add in a little community involvement w/kids and you got the ideal agenda, it can become a head ache of ideals... but I totally agree on the principle.

On a little more competative focus, I do like the idea of a ten person club that is geared to the FLW or BASS goal.

The thing that turned me off to clubs was the "cliques" that took place among the members. Another words a private club within the major club. If one of these guys were on a bite you could bet your ass the next day (2 day events ) a select group would be on that bite too. This was the early days of ABC. The group even had a name for themselves " Hookers." The rest of the guys should have been the " The Donators". because thats about what they did. The only knowledge shared was among themselves the rest were at the bottom of the food chain. If a non boater was lucky enough to get drawn he may cash a check. Most likley not since it was not a shared weight format,alot of back seating went on.

Not whining Kid. Just saying it like it is/was. Shared weight tourneys gets rid of competition between the two in the boat. One guy doesn't feel the need to sabotage the other. Instead he wants his partner to suceed.

I looked for a club that enjoyed fishing together then getting shitfaced around a campfire after on the two day tournaments. I like minimum rules and BS so I found a club that was not in the federation. When I found one that held monthly meetings in a bar and the officers table had more beer cans on it than paperwork I signed up. As soon as I get another boat I will join right back up again.
