Good news! The Pebble Mine proposal didn’t get their permit for what I understand will be indefinitely!! Also, the CA state bill that would limit fishing and hunting areas went down in defeat!!
I just got off the phone with the contact person at Riverside City that we apply to annually, to use the Walden Building for our meetings. She said, at this time, the earliest that we tentatively could use the building would be the February meeting 2021. I will be sending them a DCFF Calendar for 2021. Keep your fingers crossed!
On Wednesday, September 23, 2020, our DCFF meeting will be using the Zoom meeting platform. Greg will send out an e-mail blast prior to the meeting with the Meeting ID number and password. It can also be found in the newsletter
as well. Our speaker, Glenn Ueda, will be presenting “Midnight Madness” for Calico Bass and he will be adding an additional portion on fishing for “Carp in Montana”, as well. He did this program with Long Beach Casting Club recently, and it had great reviews!
I have heard that a few of our members have been able to take some fishing trips this summer and I am hoping that some of those individuals will send pictures and information to Kerri, for the newsletter, to allow us to share in their outings, as well as to Steve Castle for use in our Instagram site for DCFF.
An upcoming speaker for this fall is: 10/28/2020 - Greg Vinci speaking on “Northern CA Trophy Tailwaters”
Our Holiday Christmas Banquet has been canceled for this December 2020. We have rescheduled for Wednesday, December 1, 2021, at the same Riverside location as in 2019. We were able to keep the $40 per person cost that we paid in the past!
In closing, I would like to see what interest there would be in having a Zoom meeting in December for a fundraising event - i.e. silent auction on a few items as well as a special drawing for a special fly rod? Please e-mail me or text me with any comments before we have our DCFF Business Meeting in October. Thank you ahead of time for any feedback regarding this.
