May Membership Meeting

Tuesday, May 29, 2018 7:30pm

American Polish Cultural Center 2975 E. Maple Rd. Troy, MI

This month’s meeting will feature Boat Set-up Demos in the APCC parking lot (weather permitting, of course). Director Chris Nytko will have his boat, which is set-up for Walleye whipping, on hand and Director Jim Zanke will be there with “Hardtop N’ Tails”, the boat he fishes the DAS Trolling tournaments with. They’ll take turns explaining their rigs and how they are set-up and each will feature a Q & A session following each of their demonstrations. This is a great opportunity for new and old DAS members to see how their fellow members have their boats set-up and get some help and suggestions on how to set up their own boats.

Also, inside we’ll be holding a Swap Meet. Members can bring their used fishing and hunting equipment still in good condition with asking prices attached. You just might be able to sell some of those items to fellow members, who are always looking for a good deal.

After the Demos outside and a short break, inside we’ll have results from the most recent SOTY Tournaments plus info on the other upcoming tournaments, as well as a report from the last AOTY outing, Fishing Reports from the floor, Tackle Raffles, 50-50 Raffle and our Every Member Drawing (EMD).  All members are eligible for the EMD and if your name is drawn and you are present, you win $100 cash

Come on and join us! Guests are always welcome!
