The meeting was called to order by Rich Terry at 7:30 p.m.  Minutes from previous meeting were read and approved.  The treasurer's report was read by our new treasurer, Joe Pitonak.  The report was approved as read.  Rich noted that the Alverthorpe Park fishing day was a big success.  Several members from our chapter helped out.  a 28 in. catfish was caught along with some bass.  The kids all had a good time.  There was a report made that we need to improve our ways of setting up the rods for next year's event.  Dick McKinney reported that 14 went on the Penn's Creek fishing weekend.  Had rain off and on and the fishing was challenging.  A good time was had by all.  Nearly everyone caught fish.
