September Meeting

President’s Thoughts

Ernie Frey


As I am writing t the camp grounds and maybe some of the roads. We are off to an exciting Fall. This could be a good time to get some of those chores done that have been hanging around all summer and preparing for some great fall fishing.

Charlie C. says we have had a good year in volunteer projects so far this year. I want to add my thanks to his to our members who are willing to help with the Parks projects. A new brook trout stream in the park may soon be available.

Speaking of volunteering, we have another opportunity. The Park offers a fly fishing 101 to park volunteers and we have supported this effort by providing instructors to help with the class. The class will take place on Sept.23 at Sugarland park headquarters at 9:00. We need seven more people to help with this class. If it is like last year’s class, it will be a very enjoyable day. In the morning we will show the class how to cast and in the afternoon we will take them down to the West Prong of the Pigeon for some on the water experience. You don’t have to be a Master caster to help with this class. You just need to be willing to share some knowledge of your sport. Please consider volunteering let me know if you want to help.

September’s meeting will be at Calhoun’s in Maryville on September 28. Social hour starts at 6:00, business meeting starts at 7:00. Walter Babb will be our guest speaker
