Request to Rabunites and Friends

January 6, 2014

With the budget crunch faced by the agencies (the US Forest Service and GA WRD), Trout Unlimited can again step-up in 2014 and be the lead financial partner in protecting, preserving, connecting and enhancing the cold-water resources in Northeast Georgia, including the “Back the Brookie” activities. The Rabun Chapter’s major fundraiser of the year, the Rabun Rendezvous, is just a few weeks away. Now is a good time to ask friends and supporters for donations of goods and services for the silent auction and bucket raffle. 

Art, crafts (wood working, fishing flies, etc.), a campout with fishing, a day of lake fishing, a day of deer hunting on a lease, a day of wild turkey hunting, vacations, golf packages, raft trips, weekend use of mountain cabins or condos at beach, and goodies from the kitchens of the Rabunites (cakes, breads, baskets with canned veggies, jams, jellies and preserves) have always been popular with our guests. Instead of buying something to donate, consider just donating the cash. 

Don’t miss all the fun !! See you there!!!

Wildcat Creek Road Closed

A popular stocked trout stream in Rabun County, Wildcat Creek, will have its trout stockings delayed for several weeks this spring due to the closure of Wildcat Creek Road. The US Forest Service has closed this road due to a landslide that occurred this winter. Details here.

 

Rod Raffle!

Once again, Mack Martin of the Atlanta Fly Fishing School has graciously donated a custom-built fly rod and reel to the Rabun Chapter to be used for fund raising.
