- November 11: Board Meeting
Members are welcome to attend any board meeting. Check with a Board Member to find out where the meeting is being held.
- November 18: Annual General Meeting An Annual meeting is called to elect Board of Trustee members and make a small change to the calendar year.
The program for the meeting will be a presentation by Rick Takahashi. He will be demonstrating tying and giving a talk on midge fishing and signing his new book, Modern Midges. Rick is an artist, teacher, and long time fisher and tyer. Rick writes and illustrates for Fly Fisherman Magazine, is a fly designer for the Umpqua Feather Merchants, and is a consultant with C and F Designs as well as teaching fly tying at Angler's Roost in Fort Collins. This is going to be an exceptional program presented by a local celebrity.
Rick will likely have some copies of his book for sale and you can probably pick a signed one up for $39.95. The reviews on this book are very favorable—as you might expect—so come for Rick's presentation on Wednesday and leave with a book.
We will be voting to elect Board of Trustee members. The current slate of candidates includes
President - Lee Evans
Vice President - open
Secretary - Paul Fromme
Treasurer - Greg Evans
Trustee (2) - Guy Turenne and Phil Wright
Voting will also take place to change Article VII Section 4 of the bylaws from "The Annual Meeting of the chapter...shall be held in the fall of each year..." be changed to read "The Annual Meeting of the Chapter... shall be held in May of each year..."
Social hour begins at 6:30, and the Program follows at 7:30. Admission is free and the public is welcome. The Fort Collins Senior Center is located at 1200 Raintree Drive off Shields Avenue between Prospect and Drake. Additional meeting information.
Note of the Day:
At the turn of the century, the lower Beaver Kill in New York State was too warm and polluted for trout, due to extensive clearcutting, paper mills, an tanneries along its banks. The banks are now forested, the tanneries and mills are long gone, but this river is still a sensitive ecosystem, threatened by roads and housing developments. —Tom Rosenbauer
