Casting Practice: If you need help with your casting, or if you are a beginner, try to come a bit early, as we will be having casting instruction in the parking lot, starting at 5:30 PM. The club has loaner rods and reels. If you want to use your own, please be advised that the asphalt is not kind to fly lines, so bring a reel with old fly line on it.
Visit with friends: Granted, sitting through the business part of the club meetings can get a bit tedious and on occasion, downright boring, and sometimes the featured speaker doesn't give a riveting presentation. I know, you'd rather just stay outside in the parking lot and chit-chat with your buddies, instead of sitting on those metal folding chairs trying to stay awake.
Barbecue: This month, you won't have to suffer, you can hang out with fellow SCFF members and catch up with each other's fishing exploits, even make up a few lies of your own. You can feast on expertly prepared barbecue fare, hot dogs, hamburgers, and all the fixin's, and maybe make some plans to go fishing together, make new friends, strengthen the friendships you've made over the years, and just enjoy being together.
Swap Meet: So, bring your appetite, your fishing stories, and any gear you'd like to swap. In addition to the barbecue, there will be a swap meet, so here's your opportunity to unload some stuff that's been gathering dust in your closet, and/or find a treasure you can't live without. Tuck a few extra bucks in your wallet; you never know what you'll find!
New Club Logo Preview: The SCFF is in the beginning stages of choosing a new logo to represent us, and we have had several possible choices submitted to the board. Representations of them will be displayed, and small versions of the choices are in this newsletter to help you choose which one you like the best. We'll be taking a vote to finalize the choice at the September club meeting.
Donation: Please bring a $5 per person donation to offset the club's cost of the barbecue.
