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.
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.
