In light of the current in-person meeting restrictions in place due to the pandemic, the board decided to keep the club membership engaged and informed by holding a virtual general membership meeting in March. The future of the club, in the face of dwindling membership, as well as the status of upcoming fishing trips will be the agenda items for this meeting. The chairs are still planning to conduct the normal fishing trips, but start them a little later in the spring this year.  A meeting invite for the virtual meeting in March will be sent out via email and will include instructions on how to join.

 

The board is still planning to conduct an in-person Spring Membership meeting. This meeting is tentatively being planned for May. We are hoping by that time the gathering restrictions will have been relaxed. More information on that meeting will be sent out as the plans are confirmed.
