I have 5 in already for 2012 for The Bass Boys. I need 1 more person to sign up for 2012 to have my minimum of 6 members. The more members we get in before 12/31/2011, the better we can improve TBF of Michigan. I intend to help some more from this point on to improve things.

I'll have more information after the 11/6/2011 general TBF of Michigan meeting 1pm at Bass Pro Shops in Auburn Hills. In the meantime, join please. We need to be united to keep improving things for everyone and make sure we don't go backwards in our bass fishing and the environment.

Check out www.greatlakesbass.com/bassboys/ for information on how to join.

I just sent Payment. 

Thank you for organizing this club for us.  I really appreciate it. 

djkimmel

Thank you and you are welcome. Up to 6 now. Maybe 7 tomorrow. I'd like to get everyone signed up this year before 12/31/2011 to get TBF as much operating money as possible. One of the best ways to help things improve.

Team houston

Dan, remind me, am I in or do I need to do something?

bigjc

Dan, how much are the dues?

Does that give the members opportunity to fish the state tourneys?

You are a member of TBF until 12/31/2011. You need to pay dues again if you want to be a TBF of Michigan / TBF Inc member for 2012 and get any priority entries - www.greatlakesbass.com/bassboys. Choose the drop-down option for TBF FLW Life Member if you want to pay online or follow directions for mailing payment to me.

I do not have any local club dues. Total dues are $75 for 2012. That includes $25 for TBF of Michigan, $15 for TBF Inc (national) and $35 for FLW Outdoors (and their bass fishing magazine). That does make you eligible to fish the TBF of Michigan state championship and gives a path all the way to the TBF National Championship, BFL All-American and Forrest Wood Cup.

I'm up to 7 members now with 1 or 2 more coming in shortly. I will take all I can get because strong federations are a good thing for bass fishing.

I know a couple boaters that would likely be interested in joining.  One was an original Bass Boys member, but got farmed out to another club so they could have their 6th member, so they could start another club.  But I bet he would come back if Bass Boys wil lneed boaters to fish the fish off.

I'm just getting started so have these couple of guys sign up soon. The earlier, the better. I'm turning in those who have signed up this week on Sunday.

Dan, If they are still doing the magazine option the same can you load me as a " snail Mail" FLW magazine....Thanks,,.,

djkimmel

I always set everyone to a paper magazine. I'm not sure how other people end up with the electronic edition only as a default? That's not how my online member management comes up.

What is deadline to join?  Yeah, I am a terrible procrastinator :P

djkimmel

There is no actual deadline right now BUT any member who enters too late for me to get them in to TBF National by 12/31/2011 gets us no benefits back from FLW Outdoors thereby taking money away from our overall budget.

We get a significant monetary kickback from the FLW Outdoors dues for every TBF member we turn in to them by 12/31/2011. After that date, no kickback. That is lost budget money of about $18 per member. If 5,000 anglers wait to join nationally after 12/31/2011, that is $90,000+ in operating money we don't get! From what I'm told we leave that or more on the table every season due to late memberships. What a waste...

Since I had the pleasure of fishing with eetz in the DK open last spring and practiced with him at Houghton Lake, can we be a boater/non-boater pair the club sends to the fishoff?

Fine with me if it is fine with him. Then all you have to do it join...

Hi Dan,

No problem, I'm happy to fish with Eric.....when he joins!

customfishn

Id like to join but are there meetings or anything I would have to attend?  Or is it just a membership and a entry in the the TBF state championship?

bsimpson

I will be more then happy to sign up with your club if there is non-boater that can join with me, so I don't have to run around at the last second (like I had to this year at Houghton) and look for a non-boater to pair with so I could enter as a boater.

Eric

Count me in.  I'll get on this week and get my money paid.
