Senior Anglers of Escondido
THOUGHTS FROM YOUR PRESIDENT……..
It’s hard to believe that November 8th was the last general meeting for 2013. Where did the year go?
We also had out last Freshwater trip of the year to Lake Hemet. Karen and I were able to go up for a few days, sure felt good to go again after a year’s absence. While we were there we had sunny, clear weather, but after we left it turned cold and rained, but it didn’t stop the fishing. Ron and Carol Parker were great hosts, as were their co-hosts Bob and KT Taylor, keep-ing the campers entertained around the campfire each evening. Thanks Guys and Gals!
The Turkey Fry went without a hitch as Tom and Carmen Mar-tinez once again held the Turkey Fry and Silent Auction at their home in Vista. We had a wonderful turnout and enjoyed a deli-cious turkey dinner with all the trimmings, including several homemade desserts! Our thanks to all who participated, espe-cially all the cooks. Gene and Marg Lovelady did a superb job with the Silent Auction. We want to extend our thanks to them and the Martinez’s for a job well done!
Now it’s time for our newly elected board to take over for 2014. We will swear them in at our annual awards Banquet on Decem-ber 4th at the Country Club of Rancho Bernardo. The Taylors, Gehrkes and Allens have put together a lovely evening for your enjoyment. There will be rewards and prizes along with another slide presentation of the year 2013 presented by Ron and Carol Parker. What a treat we are in for. See you there!
Last but not least, I sincerely want to thank my Board of Direc-tors and all of you for giving Karen and I the privilege of being your President for the past 2 years. We had a great time. We love you all.
