Special Guest Speaker: Charles Harkless, President of Texas Federation Nation spoke to the club about the state of the Federation. He said that the future is good and that there is growth with more new clubs signing up. He encouraged members to purchase raffle tickets for the Skeeter SX 180 & Yamaha 130 HP rig. It is a good deal, but more importantly ticket sales bring money into the TX Federation to support its programs such as new weigh-in equipment and the new tournament trailer. He would like to make enough this year to give each Region $500 for Youth Programs. He provided answers to questions from members and put to bed rumors that the Federation was going away.
