August at TVTU?

Hopefully you got the word that August is our break from things TVTU - a time to go out and enjoy the fruits of your labors with activities revolving around the Cold, Clean and Fishable waters of the region. Or perhaps some other region that you have chosen to explore. Regardless, we are all in this together and hopefully there are fruits to be savored....

To that end....THERE IS NO TVTU MEMBER MEETING FOR AUGUST! Enjoy your time off! Still looking for some stuff to do? Check these out.....

CAMPOUTING!
WHEN: August 4-6, 2017
WHERE: Diamond Lake - Broken Arrow Campground
WHAT TIME: whenever you can make it
WHAT to EXPECT:
Hopefully, you read in our various notices that the date has changed for the Diamond Lake outing [to NOT coincide with the ecliptic state migration in hopes of saving you added pains of sitting idle on our roadways and being shoe-horned into our campgrounds...]. So gather up your camp stuff...
and flotation devices and join Andy and crew at Diamond Lake. Besides a healthy fishy [and midge population], Diamond is a beautiful body of water shadowed by Mt Thielsen. Come one, come all! Saturday is a potluck dinner - the chapter provides the entree - attendees please bring a side dish or dessert to share.

DIRECTIONS: Take I-5 south to Eugene; Hwy 58 across the mountains to Hwy 97; Hwy 97 South to Hwy 138; follow 138 to the Lake and watch for signs for the Broken Arrow Campground [south end of the lake].
WHAT to BRING: a floating fishing device, bug spray, a dish to share and a friend if you wish!

That is the sum total of TVTU official activities [unless you signed up to assist Peter with the TRK Kids camps!] - but do not despair, we know people! Ou friends at Royal Treatment Fly Fishing have some events happening this month:
