Changes and Additions to the Schedule 3/27/2013
Philpott Environmental Expo
We’ll have a table at the 5th Philpott Environmental Expo on April 13th, 1-4pm. Philpott Lake Park, Philpott Dam Rd. Bassett, VA. Fly tying, TU info, maybe some casting instruction if space allows. Want to help man the display? See the website calendar for more info. You might get to fish with Al afterwards!
Gateway Steetscapes River Clean Up
On April 20th, Gateway Streetscapes Foundation will conduct a river cleanup from Trenthill bridge to midtown Bassett. We will partner with Gateway and encourage our members and the community to come out and lend a hand. Assemble at the old Bassett HS for a quick breakfast and then the cleanup kicks off at 9AM. We should finish by 1PM. Fish afterwards!
June Meeting Program
For our June 6 Meeting, we are pleased to announce that Mark Taylor, outdoor columnist and blogger for the Roanoke Times, will present a talk and slide show on his Alaska travels. He’ll tell us about salmon, trout, grayling, bears and dynamic scenery. Our own Al Kittridge has been to Alaska about 10 times himself and can help answer questions about planning your own trip. Should be fun.
SRTU River Clean Up
Because the April 20 cleanup will cover much of our later cleanup area, we have chosen to head upstream. The July 20th cleanup will now cover the section of the river from Philpott Dam to Trenthill bridge. Gateway will partner with us on this cleanup also.
See the webpage calendar for details and contact info.
