April’s meeting was at our new public meeting place, which is the Senior Citizens Center across from the Richland City Hall and library at 371 Scarborough street. This was our tying location before COVID. The good news is that it has been remodeled and has WIFI. We access it from the East side instead of the West. Meetings are the 4th Thursday, which makes our next meeting May 26, and the time is our normal 6:30 time. Our program will be the “Cased Caddis”, tied by Chuck Wilder. We intend to provide material and a third party tying link, like the Featherbender. We will play that video and then Chuck will tie it in front of us and we will use the video recorder and projector to project “live action” on the wall.
Please check our Calendar for meeting dates as well as our Events page. Also you can check MeWe and email for last minute meeting information. Check out the Gulf Coast Council Winter newsletter for events and information pertinent to our area, Gulf Streamer.
