August 21, 2018 Dinner Meeting – Fly Fishing Seminars and Used Equipment sale
August 21 @ 5:30 pm - 9:30 pm| $35
On Tuesday, August 21st, we are going to be treated to five of the most outstanding speakers we’ve had for this annual event in several years. As usual the evening will consist of a delicious barbecue dinner before the speakers begin, and during that time attendees can peruse a variety of used fly fishing equipment that our members will bring to the event to sell, trade, or give-away. The festive mood will be accented by usual piano player. After dinner, and at approximately 7 pm, our four speakers will divide the room into four groups and begin simultaneous inter-active discussions on their topics. At 8 pm, or so we will call a recess, and our members can then rotate to hear another of the speakers for an hour. One or two door prize raffles will also be conducted during the evening.
