Reminder for a good cause [and HELP!]

Looking to fill your weekend on November 8 - visit the FFACS folks for their 2014 Pacific Northwest Fly Tyers Rendezvous!

WHAT: 2014 FFACS PNW Fly Tyer Rendezvous
WHEN: Saturday, November 8 - 8:30 a.m. until 5:00 p.m.
WHERE: Jackson Armory [near the PDX Airport]
THE POOP: the annual FFACS Pacific Northwest Fly Tyer Rendezvous is right around the corner - if you are not familiar with this program it is a non-profit coalition for fishing conservation and education. The rendezvous is their big fundraiser for the year and with the help of several local clubs – Tualatin Valley Chapter included – they assemble some of the finest tyers from the area to demonstrate flies and techniques. Along with that are silent auctions and some other fundraisers for your participation – food is also available.

The funds are equally divided among the participating clubs for distribution to education or conservation groups chosen by the club [in March of 2014 TVTU directed their available $700 portion to the World Salmon Council].

Please plan on attending!

ALSO: if you will be there anyways - would you help out a bit - the Chapter can use your assistance facilitating some of the activities. Please contact MIKE GENTRY you can add some manpower – he will have details [pretty minor stuff folks!].
