Information on Remaining Meetings And Events In 2018
June 9 – Fishing outing at Neshoba Lake, near Philadelphia. June 12 – Fly Tying meeting night, tentatively, Miss MFF Event Coordinator is brewing up a fish fry supper/ event. On our fly tying night we will have fish fry pot luck. Tying, casting, fishing advice for our young folks, maybe some Scouts, and all around general good time.
As I see it, there’s no school, there’s more daylight, you eat supper anyway, and our Saturday workers can attend.
Bickham is designated frymaster.
We have approved this with our venue, but we have to do all the cooking outside. June 19 – The June meeting is planned for Orvis due to BP being booked, need to meet as close to 6:00 as possible to prevent a strain on Orvis folks as they close earlier. Program TBD, but Read is working on it!
June 22,23,24 – Leeville Weekend. The Red Stick Club of Baton Rouge hosts this event and last year’s event had to be cancelled to scheduling/venue issues. Shrimp boil on Friday night, fish fry Saturday night. July 10 – Fly tying night, Richland location across the street from city hall south side of Scarbrough street in the Parks and Recreation bldg, 6:00 PM. Also fly casting on the lawn for those inclined to practice or ask for help. The bldg with the white roof in the photo below is no longer there and is now just grass and we use the space for Cynthia’s casting clinics or …some of just like to cast. July 17 – July meeting is at Bass Pro in Pearl, 6:30 in the large conference room upstairs on the Northwest end of the bldg, behind the footwear. Need to plan for the extravaganza. Read may have a speaker, TBD.
