This is the time of year when credit union marketers are crunching numbers and formulating 2016 marketing campaigns and budgets. According to CUES Supplier member Callahan & Associates, U.S. credit unions spent $1.17 billion on marketing and promotional expenses in 2014. And on average, they were spending $436 in marketing expenses per net new member.Does this ring a bell? There’s some serious money at stake and if the return on marketing investments don’t compute to steady member growth, that’s simply money out the window.Enter Advanced AnalyticsCredit unions have always excelled at fostering strong, lasting relationships with their members. This has helped them tailor the right messaging and product offering to the right member. However, times are changing.

Reel Adventures Fishing Charters guide Kerry Reed has been away on th West Coast of late. Reed gives a capsule account of life on the ocean as well as helping local fishermen catch the big one on Kootenay Lake.Well, we finally made it back from the West Coast a couple weeks ago. This year’s Salmon fishing was a lot different than most years, probably because of the unusually warm waters. The run of big fish that we usually see just didn’t seem to happen like normal. We did manage a few big fish up to 32 pounds, but most days saw smaller fish. The trade off was okay though, because there seemed to be a lot of those fish around. Some days out on the bank, we landed more than 60 fish per day.And I remember one outstanding day where we landed over 100 fish. So, the non-stop action made up for the size of Salmon.We also caught a lot more Halibut this year and the sizes were up too. Most of our Hali’s averaged between 15 – 25 pounds, with our biggest couple weighing in around 60 pounds. All in all, we made the best of our season and most people went home happy. Already planning for next year.Kootenay LakeAnd now we’re back on Kootenay Lake and already into the swing of things. Our last few charters have seen a lot of action for this time of year. Most days we’re catching between 5 – 10 fish. We’ve been landing Rainbows up to 18 pounds and Dolly Varden (Bull Trout) up to 15 pounds. I’ve also heard of a few Rainbows over 20 pounds and even up to 25 pounds. That’s amazing fishing at this time. And things are only going to get better. The water temperature is still a bit warm for these fish to begin to get active. So, right now, the fish are scattered. But, as the temperatures cool and our water temp drops, these fish will be getting more and more aggressive. The best is yet to come. My favorite time is approaching. October, November, December are prime months for fishing our magnificent lake. What are they biting on??? Since the water temperature is still above 60 degrees, most of the fish are staying deep. So, we have been catching a lot on the usual flasher/hoochie combo. However, some of our latest fish have been caught on the surface. So, we need to mix it up a bit. Bucktail flies have been catching a few, as well as lyman plugs and apex lures on the surface. The best bet is to run some lines on the surface, and some lines on the downrigger. My favorite depths have been between 90 ft – 140 feet. Bucktail fly colors working for me have been: 215, 221, 226, and 228. And my Lyman plugs so far working best are: #16, 53, 55, and lucky number 69. Not one pattern has been working better than any other, so keep changing it up until the fish tell you what they want.Derby, Derby, Derby It’s that time of year again — Fishing Derby season. October is not only the beginning of our good fishing, but it’s the beginning of the Fishing derbies. Here’s a list of what is coming up: October 13-14 – Nelson City Police Alumni Derby November 10-12 – Kaslo Rainbow Derby Tight Lines………….. Kerry Reed Reel Adventures Fishing Charters

They will have clarity soon enough, though.The Warriors expect to have Durant’s MRI results sometime on Wednesday morning after he traveled to New York on Tuesday for various medical opinions on his right Achilles injury. The Warriors already initially fear Durant tore his right Achilles tendon against Toronto in Game 5 of the NBA Finals on Monday, which would sideline him for the …
New Delhi: Wrestling is one of the sports that is expected to produce at least a medal for India at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics. Bajrang Punia and Vinesh Phogat are the two most likely wrestlers to end up on the podium. Yet, it is interesting to note that apart from these two ace grapplers, it is thin pickings for India in wrestling. Bajrang is ranked number one in the world in the 65kg category and is considered a genuine contender for gold medal in Tokyo. He has won seven golds in his last nine tournaments and this includes his victory at the 2018 Asian Games. He is looking to seal qualification through the World Championship that will be held in September in Nur-Sultan, Kazhakstan, for which he sealed his spot in the Indian contingent in a rather farcical trial on Friday. Also Read – Puducherry on top after 8-wkt win over Chandigarh Bajrang said after the trial that he is working with his coach Shako Bentinidis on his leg defence, the only real weakness in what is otherwise a foolproof technique. Bajrang tends to give away points with the overwhelming confidence that he can make up for the deficit. He manages to do that most of the times but defeats in the final of the 2018 World Championship and the 2019 Beat the Street at Madison Square Garden showed that this makes him susceptible against elite competition in high-pressure environments. The World Championship would also be the perfect gauge to see where Bajrang truly stands with the respect to the Olympics with the 24-year-old expecting the competition in Kazhakstan to match, if not surpass, what he will face in Tokyo. Also Read – Vijender’s next fight on Nov 22, opponent to be announced later Despite his high billing, it is interesting to note that this will be the first time Bajrang will be taking part in the Olympics. He was anything but the household name he is now during Rio 2016, unlike Vinesh. Vinesh was one of the favourites to win a medal at the 2016 Olympics but a career threatening injury during the quarter finals forced her to end her campaign. Vinesh has since then fought her way back to fitness and form. However, unlike Bajrang, she has not been steady with her weight class. Vinesh wrestled in the Rio Olympics in 48kg. After her recovery, she tried to wrestle in the category in the 2017 World Championship with little success. Her two golds in the Commonwealth Games and Asian Games in 2018 came in 50kg but in March this year, she decided to move up to 53kg to reduce the risk of injuries and prolong her career. Her first challenge in the new weight class was the Dan Kolov tournament and that was followed by the Asian Championship in April. She won a silver and a bronze respectively in the two events but then went on to win the Grand Prix in Spain and Yasar Dogu tournament this month, thus indicating that she is settling into her new category. Apart from these two wrestlers, it is hard to see a genuine medal contender in the Indian contingent. Sakshi Malik has been on a downward spiral since her historic bronze medal at Rio 2016. She admitted that a lot of it has to do with the mental clutter because of which she has curbed her tendency to take risks. It is this tendency that allowed her to go 0-5 down in the medal match in Rio before turning it around and ending up with a smile on her face and a medal around her neck. She will be looking to make the World Championship team on Sunday in the trials that will be held in Lucknow. It is to be noted, though, that Sakshi was hardly in form wrester going into Rio 2016, just as is the case now. Pooja Dhanda (57kg) and Seema (50kg) are two other names who have impressed in recent years among the female wrestlers while Sumit (125kg), Mausam Khatri (97kg), Deepak Punia (86kg) and Ravi Dahiya(57kg) have made it to the World Championship squad. Sushil Kumar will be looking to join them in the 74kg category with the trials for the weight class being postponed to the second week of August. The 36-year-old two-time Olympic medallist, well into the twilight of his career, last made an appearance in the international stage at the 2018 Asian Games where he crashed out in the qualifications.
