The March program will be “business travel trouting tips” by the Foothills Chapter TU’s frequent flyer, Bob Lux.  Bob, the chapter’s newsletter editor, has perfected the art of packing light to pack in some fishing along with his distant business travel far to the north and west. Come learn some secrets from this expert, just in time to start watching the internet for deep discounts on next summer’s airfares to locales “West of Hiawassee.” Believe me, his photo results will make you a believer, too! Come join the Rabunite crowd on Mar 20 and learn how to “work” remotely in style.

At every regular chapter meeting there will be a raffle for fishing or camping items to help pay the cost of mailing the newsletter to members without email and to raise money to pay for our storage building. Bring an item to donate and a dollar or two for raffle tickets.
