CHAPTER MEETINGS

Where: Lucky Lab Public House - Multnomah Village
            [7675 SW Capitol Highway]
When: second Wednesday each month [except July and August].
Time: 6:30 p.m. gathering time - 7:00 p.m. program start.
What to Expect: The meeting room is the 2nd floor banquet room. There is usually a brief update on Chapter news and events; we ask that new members introduce themselves; allow short tales of any recent member fishing exploits; all that leads directly into the feature presenter.

Raffle: throughout the evening you will have a chance to purchase raffle tickets from our raffle organizer – Ron Reinebach – who assembles some handy and attractive take-homes for the lucky contributor* [Ron loves a good haggle so test your skills! Though he offers some good packages deals!]. You cannot win if you don’t enter so if something catches your eye call on Ron – help further support the Chapter! *

Food and drink: available for purchase at the Lucky Lab meetings [hint: place your order in the banquet room and avoid the lines on the main floor – this service is provided with the room rentals!].

Speakers: we schedule a wide range of interesting and informative speakers at each monthly meeting so there certainly will be many of interest to you. The topics range from fishing guides and instruction to conservation – we even have some Chapter members who have presented on some of their most awesome destination fishing trips! If you have a suggestion for a speaker – please contact us and let us know.

So please plan on stopping by and taking part – and bring your best fishing stories! We hope to see you soon!
*  All proceeds go directly and solely to the Tualatin Valley Chapter to support our projects, meetings, and outings. Must be present to win.
