The Destin Fishing Rodeo general membership meeting and election of board of directors is scheduled for 5:30 p.m., Jan. 31 at AJ's Seafood and Oyster Bar.



The meeting is open to all members of the rodeo, new and existing. Complimentary heavy hors d'oeuvres and non-alcholhic beverages will be served. A cash bar will be available.



Rodeo memberships are available for $20 for individual members and $35 for family memberships. The profile of a rodeo member is as varied as the rodeo.



"We need people whose interests range from fishing to beauty pageants and everything in between," according to Helen Donaldson, executive director of the rodeo.



At the general meeting three new directors will be selected to sit on the board. There will also be a chance for members to sign up for the various committees.



This year's slate of candidates for the board include long-time rodeo volunteers and participants. They are Kathy Earley, Kathy Eller, Isabel Graef, Trey Windes and Todd Womack. There will also be write-in spaces available for additional nominations.
