January Meeting next Thursday, 1/9/2020

Foothills January Meeting next Thursday, 1/9/2020...

We hope to see everyone this Thursday. As usual, the public is always welcome to attend our monthly meetings. Invite a neighbor or even someone who fishes squirmies.

The social time is around 6:00 - 6:30 with the meeting starting up at 6:30.

Date: 12/12/19
Time: 6:30 P.M.
Location: United Community Bank, 468 W Louise Street, Clarkesville, GA 30523

We have a few new things to try out at our meetings going forward. We started in December with having a door prize at our monthly meetings. We have purchased gift certificates good for ½ day of unguided fishing at Nacoochee Bend. Everyone who attends the meetings will be given an entry into the drawing each month. In addition, Foothills members who volunteer to help out at events will be given an extra ticket into drawing. You must be present to win.

We are doing this in hopes of increasing attendance at the meetings and participation at club activities. We are also going to start having a raffle at the meetings to try to spice things up a little bit. So bring along a couple of bucks and see if your able to win something !

Our guest speaker for the chapter meeting next Thursday (1/9/20) will be Sam Johnson. Sam has just published a book entitled "Fly Fishing the Blue Ridge Parkway". Sam is a member of the Gold Rush Chapter of TU in Dahlonega and has been a supporter of Trout Unlimited for a long time. Sam is also known for building bamboo fly rods which he supplied to L.L. Bean.
