January Meeting

President’s Corner

Ernie Frey  



It is the start of a new year. I wasn’t planning on being president this year but it looks like I am. This year we have a vice-president Steve Darnell who will be president next year. Steve and I will be working together this year to ease him into the presidency.

We have a lot of projects nominated for this year. To start the year LRCTU will sponsor a fly tying and fly casting classes with Blount County Parks and Recs will start the first Saturday in March. The casting class will start later after it warms up a little. Another project we are working on with the City of Maryville is a delayed harvest program for Pistol Creek. At this writing, TWRA is scheduling a survey for Pistol Creek to check on the viability of putting trout in the creek. We still want to do a clean-up in the Smoky Mountain National Park but the government shutdown has delayed those talks. There is also the Pistol Creek Adopt a Creek Program which we are in discussions with Maryville city engineers. Those are just the first quarter.

The meetings this year will be held at Barley’s Maryville on the fourth Tuesday of the month. This month’s meeting will be January 22 as usual 6 PM for the social hour and 7pm for the business meeting.  Bryon Begley will be are guest speaker

Come join us and start the New Year right!
