Rabun TU Needs a New Meeting Location

August 10, 2015

As we have all read in the paper, and heard through the grapevine, the Scout Hut has been condemned and we are again in search of a home–a place that the Rabun Chapter of Trout Unlimited can call its own. The Scouts have found a home at the American Legion building in Mountain City, and they will continue to meet on their scheduled Tuesday nights. Thursday is the Legion’s night for cooking. So, where does that leave us? It means that we must find a new home.

In this respect, EVERYONE needs to put their “Sherlock Holmes” to work to think of a place where we can meet regularly, that has both heating and air, that can accommodate our need for storage, and do it quickly, as we are out in the proverbial cold now. The Board of Direc- tors is open to any and all suggestions. And, we are even considering changing our meeting nights for both Chapter and Board back to Tuesday.

I know this is “west of the Hiawassee” time, and I also know that Rendezvous Chairman Ray King is gearing up to begin our solicitations for this coming Rendezvous, but WE NEED A HOME! Please contact either Vice President Kent Wilson or me with your ideas. And, if there is a really generous soul in the group, maybe we could even consider pur- chasing a meeting place. We can dream, can’t we?!!!!!!!!!!!! Anyway, this affects us all, so put on your thinking caps, and don’t let any idea go un-researched.

Sept 17: Chapter Meeting

August 10, 2015

Sept. 17 (Thurs) Regular Monthly Meeting. Will let you know about Fly Tying. Social at 6:30 and meeting at 7:00. The subject matter from our guest speaker will be about Brook Trout!! “ Brook trout response to habitat improvements” by Ga DNR Senior biologist Anthony Rabern. Leon taught us the “how” in his program and now his supervisor will explain what happened and where we should go in the future. What a great program so mark your calendars now.

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.
