Foothills TU meetings for July & August
July and August are challenging months for our chapter meetings. Members are busy and are often traveling. It’s also a challenge to book speakers. This year let’s try something different. Bring your tools, vice and some materials and tie some flies and swap some tales. We’ll order up some pizza and spend the time visiting together. If there is something you would like to bring up and discuss, we can do that also. If you have something to share, by all means come and share. I think we can make this an interesting time. We’ll get back to normal in September.
Foothills is the lead chapter this year for the Wilks Creek workday on Saturday July 28th. We will be providing lunch and logistical support for this event. Please add this to your calendar and come out and help us make this a great success.
