Hi all...I am David, aka Life Member davesett2000 on the Club Bulletin
During the month of December, we held a "BB Personality of the Year" contest, and would like you to consider the following write-up for the magazine.
I have also attached a Word document of the same thing, in case that is easier for you to use.
Thank you for your time, and have a great weekend!
"1st ANNUAL NAFC BB PERSONALITY OF THE YEAR CONTEST"
During the month of December, the members of the club Member-to-Member Forum Bulletin Board held the "1st ANNUAL BB PERSONALITY OF THE YEAR" Contest. Although no prizes were to be awarded, everyone that contributed to the topic thought it was a great idea, and were eager to vote for their favorite member. Four members (Davesett2000, WalleyeWayne, WalleyeKing #1, and Rod Tender) took it upon themselves to organize the procedures and set up a list of rules to assure members that it would be a fair contest. The vote took place the last two weeks in December, with the winner being announced on Jan 1st / 2005.
Once the voting started, there was a flurry of activity throughout the BB as contestants went out of their way to solicit votes from members. One member even posted â€œswimsuit picturesâ€ of rival candidates, and some candidates tried to â€œbribeâ€ the panel members with offers of smoked fish (a joke of course). But under the watchful eye of the panel, the rules were followed. Voting was slow during the first few days do to the â€œChristmas rushâ€, and it looked like it was going to be a close race. However, once the banter settled down and more votes came in, one name kept showing up more then the others, making it easy for the panel members to determine the winner.
The 2004 B&B Personality of the Year goes to LIPRIPPER, for his outstanding contributions to help and greet other members. When asked by the panel why each member voted for a particular candidate, they commented on how Lipripper always takes time out to greet new members and get them involved by directing them to a number of topics throughout the BB. His funny jokes and sense of humor make us laugh, and his signature â€œEyeâ€ (for â€œIâ€) and multitude of funny graemlins all contributed to his win. Congratulations Lipripper!
On behalf of the members that utilize the NAFC club web site, we would like to thank the Editors and Staff of the North American Fishing Club for giving us this Great Club, Magazine and Web Site. Without their continued efforts none of this would be possible.
We would also like to extend an invitation to all club members reading this magazine to join us at www.fishingclub.com. Stop on down and check it out. On the home page you can find out about Club benefits, new products, upcoming stories, and keep up to date on fishing news & events within the Club. You can also test your fishing knowledge on the Weekly Web Quiz and enter the monthly Click & Win contest. Then thereâ€™s the personal side of the web site, with a Member-to-Member Forum Bulletin Board and chat-room, where you can share your fishing stories, pictures, ask questions or get answers to help you become a better fisherperson.
During the past year on the BB, members discussed a multitude of topics, such as what rods and reels work the best, best baits, best boats, rigs & jigs how / when / where to fish them. Some members started get-togethers where they meet up and share fishing time on the water together. No matter what the question is, there's always someone there willing to help find an answer for you.
