A Line from your President…

Once again, I would like to start the New Year by thanking our last year’s Board of Directors for a job well done. Sadly, two of our Board members will not be returning to the board this year. Pat Stevens has moved out of state and Hank Skaja has stepped down. I wish them both well and appreciate their contributions while on the board. I am pleased to announce that Linda Perdue has volunteered to take over Pat’s position and will be our new Membership Director. If no one steps up to fill Hank’s position as the Community Events Director, for each of this year’s events we will form a committee to supervise each event. I would also like to take this opportunity to thank Ron Parker, who has volunteered to continue in the position of Past President for yet another year. The Awards Banquet/Holiday Party Committee consisting of Karen Taylor, Betty Allen, and Anitra Gehrke, once again pulled off a truly wonderful event at the County Club of Rancho Bernardo. The food and entertainment were excellent, and our very own Ken Harrison did a great job as the banquet’s Master of Ceremonies. During dinner we all enjoyed another Awards Banquet tradition; Carol and Ron Parker brought their superb video of this year’s club highlights. Of course, the beautiful venue for this event would not have been possible without Larry and Betty Allen. You all deserve a big thank you for making this year’s Holiday Banquet truly special.

This year’s Escondido Trout Derby at Lake Dixon, which started the day after the Awards Banquet was a huge success. Despite the cold, wet weather, many anglers showed up to compete in the event. The Grand Prize winner tipped the scales at a respectable 9 lb. 3.7 oz. and many limits were taken. A great time was had by all who volunteered. Those who helped at the Kiddy Pond were truly

Our annual Viejas Trip was another fun event. The buffet was great, several who went were able to check off marks on their Christmas lists with items purchased at the outlet mall, and a few people even went home a little richer. Thank you, Barbara Gattuso, for organizing this.

On December 19th we had the first Fishing Challenge of the season. It was held at Lake Wohlford. Read more about this event in the Freshwater report. Local lakes are currently being stocked with trout. Now is a good time to give them a try, but don’t forget your 2020 fishing license.

Monique and I Wish You All a Healthy, Happy and Prosperous New Year
