MAP - Membership Award Program

The "Fish Bucks" program was created to encourage members to participate in Club activities. Members can "earn" Fish Bucks throughout the year by participating in various club activities.

In December during our Holiday Party we have a Fish Bucks only auction. Fish Bucks earned in that year must be used at the holiday party auction and cannot be rolled over to the following year. Points are nontransferable. Each members starts out with $100.00 in January when dues are paid
