Please join us in two weeks for our May Chapter Meeting. It will be held Wednesday, May 1st, 7:00pm at the Montgomery County Government Center in Christiansburg. We’ll have a pre-meeting meal at Due South BBQ at 6:00pm.
We should have several guests at the meeting. Dawn Kirk, Fisheries Biologist with the US Forest Service will be joining us, we will discuss the ongoing project at Glen Alton on Big Stony Creek and what we can do with remaining funding for that project. Also, Max Guggenheimer, the 5 Rivers Program Coordinator for the Virginia Council of Trout Unlimited, will be joining us and showing some highlights from the Fly Fishing Film Tour. With Max joining us we will be inviting fishing clubs from VT and RU to discuss developing 5 Rivers TU Chapters there.
We will also briefly discuss the $5,000 grant we recently received for stream protection in Floyd County, our proposed VT CRC fishing classes, our banquet this fall, and get a TIC update.
Thanks to those that came out to our Spring Thawout event! We had great presentations from Joe Williams, VDGIF and the guys from Tangent Outfitters and we also recognized retiring teacher Gary Bobbitt from Floyd County High School for his dedication to the Trout in the Classroom project. A big thanks to all those that helped out and to Lynn Hayes for chairing the committee that put this on.
