February 10th Meeting - Red Stick Day Preparation

Red Stick Day is quickly approaching and we need EVERYONE to chip in to make it a success.   As you know Catch Cormier has been the events chair for many years and most of us have no idea of how much goes into this event to make it a success.  As the March 7th banquet and the March 8th Red Stick day are closing in I have prepared an action item list that should help us ensure we’ll have all the items covered. Be prepared at the Monday, February 10th, meeting to commit to the items you will be responsible for on Red Stick Day.  It might be cooking for the banquet, tying some flies or leaders, donating books and DVD’s, or contacting our sponsors for prizes.  Too many items to mention here, just be ready to jump in and help make our event a success.

Meanwhile back at the ranch I have contacted several tiers and am just a couple of folks shy of having our maximum allotment for the Waddill Center.  I have one speaker committed and others are being contacted to see if they will come share their knowledge with the club.  We may want to enlist a couple of Red Stick’s Finest to round out our speakers.

Please come and volunteer so we make this event the success that it has always been in the past.
Any questions email me, or text or call 225-335-4596.
Looking forward to seeing you Monday February 10.
