Membership Information

Postby ottawaba » Mon Sep 14, 2009 6:46 pm

Ottawa Valley South Bassmasters consists of a group of anglers who are enthusiastic about fishing. The Chapter membership ranges from the beginner to the seasoned professional angler, and the young, to the young at heart. We are now entering our 20th year and plan to continue for many more years. We hold monthly meetings from October to May, and at our meetings, we conduct Chapter general business, discussions on upcoming Chapter projects and community activities, and as well provide presentations on various fishing techniques to the Chapter members. During the annual bass season, the OVSB conducts a "members only" tournaments series, consisting of five events using the BASS Federation boater/co-angler format, in pursuit of determining the OVSB Angler of the Year recipient. The boater/co-angler pairing are different for each tournament. The boat pairing for each tournament is determined by a draw before the first tournament and you will not fish with the same member twice in the same year.

This format will afford every member the opportunity to gain real on the water exposure to many different bass angling techniques and decrease the overall learning curve in your pursuit in bass angling.

Please be advised that membership within the Ottawa Valley South Bassmasters is based on a Calendar Year. For example, if you join in October as a new member, your membership will expire on December 31st of that same year. With that being said, potential new members are encouraged to attend the meetings from October to December to get more information. Interested new members must attend at least one meeting from October to April in order to be eligible for membership and as per our Chapter bylaw, must be voted in by the current membership. A full copy of the Chapter bylaws will be made available upon joining. If a new member decides to join between October to December, they will not be considered a full member until the following calendar year but can participate in the meetings if they choose to. They will be eligible to vote on any club business once they become a full member.
