2018 Long Beach Casting Club Spey Casting Tournament Results
Long Beach Casting Club sponsored the first Annual LBCC Spey Casting Tournament on January 27 and 28, 2018.
Updated Constitution & Bylaws
In November the board decided to bring our constitution and bylaws (found on pages 52 to 59 of the roster) up to date and asked a work team consisting of Cecil O’Dell, Keith O’Donnell, Mick Woodbury, Tom McGivern and Rick Hillis to tackle the project. The task involved documenting changes over the past year and making numerous editorial changes for easier reading. In the January board meeting the team submitted an update, which the board approved.
The updated constitution and bylaws can be accessed for your review on our website by clicking here.
You will be asked to approve the updated version at the Annual General Meeting in April.
