Hello and Merry Christmas to you All. I just have a couple messages.
Thursday Dec. 5th, we have our monthly meeting. Sandman Inn 7 PM. We have two speakers. Jeff Burrows our Kootenay Sr. Biologist will report on fishery related items. And Jenifer Vogle will give us more on Invasive plants in our waters. Its great to have one speaker but to have two in one nite is a bonus.
If any of you are coming and tie flies, it is customary for us to give a few to our speakers. I always give a few each time but could use some other patterns added to the gift. hint, hint.
Saturday is our annual Christmas social. It takes place at Paul and Denise Maiers house. 1357 McFee Road, Ootishenia. 6 pm happy hour and 7 pm supper. It is potluck style, we supply the turkey and ham, if coming do bring a salad or caserol or desert or hordorves?. We also do the gift exchange game so if a man bring a mans gift, and if female bring a female gift. If confused bring what ever. There should be no fighting over the holupsy this year as Garry is too far away to make it. Yes we will miss the episode #2 of Paul and Garry battleing over the leftovers. Ok, Garry isn’t here to defend himself so won’t mention this any more. Merry Christmas Pat and Garry.
Our fly tying nites are over for the 2013 year, we had five sessions this past month in Castlegar, and I believe there were four held in Fruitvale last month. We start again in Feb. 2014 if interested.
If I don’t see you at the meeting or christmas social, do have a Great Christmas and Have a Happy and Healthy New Year.
Tight lines and Bent rods, Rod Zavaduk.
