DO WE NEED "CHANGE WE CAN BELIVE IN" AND " YES WE CAN" AH THE POLITICS OF FISHING. YES DON IT IS ABOUT THE FISHING, AND CONSERVATION AND ALL YOU MENTIONED, AND I FOR ONE AM NOT AGAINST FISHING THE RIVER ONCE A SEASON AND HAVING THE CHAMPIONSHIP THERE EVERY 4TH YR,BUT WE NEED TO BE DEMOCRATIC ABOUT THIS, SOME OF US FISH ALL 4 WHEN WE CAN AND HAVE SINCE THE BEGINNING, BUT TO HAVE A CLUB WITH 10 MEMBERS THIS IS AN EX, THAT THEY ONLY SHOW UP WHEN IT IS ON THEIR WATERS AND DO NOT SHOW UP AT OTHERS, IF THEY DO NOT QUALIFY ON THEIR HOME WATERS THEY FISH NO MORE, THIS IS NOT ABOUT THE RIVER, BIG BONE, CARROLTON,CEDER POINT IS ALL FINE, BUT WE ARE GOING TO GRAYSON FOR ONLY A HANDFUL OF MEMBERS FROM THAT REGION, ONLY TWO FROM THAT AREA OF THE STATE FISHED ALL 4 LAST YR, THE REST WERE ONE AND DONE, IF THERE HAD BEEN MORE PARTICIPATION AT GREENUP LAST SEASON, I WOULD HAVE CASHED A CK,WE DID NOT HAVE 30 BOATS THERE, THAT IS SAD. THAT IS WHAT ALL OF THIS RETORIC IS ABOUT. I HAVE NO QUALMS ABOUT THE SCHEDULE, IT IS A LONG HAUL FOR ME TO GRAYSON AND ALSO PADUCAH, BUT I WILL MAKE IT IF ALL POSSIBLE, I LOVE THE KBFN AND WILL SUPPORT IT FULLY, I LIKE THE PEOPLE THE COMPITION, THE COMRODARY, I CANT SPELL SORRY, I DO NOT WANT TO SEE US GO DOWN IN NUMBERS, THE ECONOMY IS HURTING US BAD ENOUGH JUST DONT NEED TO SEE IT GO DOWN DUE TO POLITICS. NOT ALL WILL BE HAPPY WITH ANY SCHEDULE, BUT WE MUST MAKE ADJUSTMENTS TO THE WAY THE BODIES OF WATER ARE PICKED, AND MAKE IT FAIR FOR ALL. LET THE MAJORITY HAVE A VOTE. LETS US NOT LOSE OUR FOCUS DUE THE THESE DISCUSSIONS, THESE ARE IDEAS TO HELP MAKE OUR CLUB GROW, IF MORE POLITICANS HAD THESE OPEN DISCUSSIONS THIS COUNTRY WOULD NOT BE IN THE MESS IT IS IN. LET US ALL WORK TOGETHER, WE ARE GROWING AND IT WILL TAKE TIME TO SATISFY ALL AND NONE WILL EVER BE, BUT WE MUST LEARN FROM OUR MISTAKES AND MOVE FOWARD. PEACE
