Listen to - A Line from your President

 

A Line from your President. . . . . . . . . . .

I am happy to report that progress is being made towards the club being able to return to monthly meetings, but we will have to wait a little while longer. The Community Center's meal program hall is being renovated and will not be finished until at least August 1. In the meantime, they are using the auditorium where we normally meet as their temporary dining hall. Because of this, the city is not allowing large group meetings until the work on the dining hall is completed.

The Center is allowing smaller groups to meet in their meeting rooms, so I have asked to use the Cedar Room to restart the board of directors meetings. I am calling the board to meet on August 9th at 8:45 am so we can start planning for recruitment of new board members for 2022 and to plan our calendar for the remainder of the year.

The Board of Directors is the central core of the Senior Anglers of Escondido. Without a fully functioning board our organization will cease to exist. We have several vacancies that need to be filled on next year’s board. I am asking all members to consider stepping up and volunteering to fill one of these vacancies. Being a member of the board comes with certain benefits including: having a say in future planning and changes to the Club, serving with other dedicated members and developing new bonds and friendships and the satisfaction of being a central part of a great organization. If you would like to be considered for a position on the board please contact me or any of the other Board members.

Fishing in local lakes has slowed down with catfish being the main species currently being caught. Beginning on July 9, Dixon Lake will begin allowing night fishing on Friday nights in the months of July, and hope to go to two nights a week in August. Anglers participating in night fishing must leave the park no later than 11:45 P.M.

Saltwater fishing is picking up with lots of Bluefin Tuna being caught on 1.5 day boats. Half day boats are targeting calico and sand bass and a variety of bottom fish.

Monique and I hope to see you all soon. In the meantime, go out and enjoy your summer. Do things you haven’t been able to do for the past year, and have a great 4th of July.
