From the President's Desk

March is here and that means it’s time for the Sport and Travel Expo. This is a great opportunity to find the newest equipment available, hear from some great experts on fishing and hunting, book that fishing or hunting trip you’ve been thinking about, and spending time with family and friends while exploring everything that is available. As a club, we volunteer to help with setup, teardown and security, while manning our booth and trout pond. In exchange for our help, we receive a donation to the club. It’s a win-win situation. If you haven’t signed up to help, stop by or call the club and get on the list. 

Thursday, April 11th we will once again be hosting the State of the Lake program at the club beginning at 7 p.m. We hope that many of you will be able to attend.

On Saturday, April 13th we will once again participate in JAKES Day sponsored by Springville Strutters. We conduct a brief presentation on safety and casting and then help the kids to cast. It’s a great time to interact with the future of the club (the youth).

Also on April 13th we will be hosting our next Meat Raffle. Tickets are $5. It’s a fun time for a Saturday evening. Stop by for tickets. 

Sign-up sheets for working the weigh stations during the June walleye Derby are up at the club. Please consider working a short (approx. 3 hours) shift. Be sure to print your name, phone number and shirt size on the sign-up sheet. Also, check the schedule for training dates.

We will be posting the sign-up sheet for the Erie County Fair shortly. We know it’s only March, but we need to plan ahead to be sure we have enough help. Sign up to work a 4 hour shift at our booth in the Conservation Building. We talk to visitors about the club and hand out informational pamphlets. You get a pass to get in and you can spend the rest of your day exploring the Fair!

Watch our club calendar and website for future events. Your participation at our events helps to make them a success and helps to keep our club financially sound.

Until next month…be safe out there!
