From the President's Desk
By Sue Guenther
Thank you to all who participated in our many events this past year and to all who attended the Volunteer Picnic on September 29th. Please remember to fill out one of our postcards when you work at an event during the next year. We use those cards to remind you of the day of the picnic (and it helps to know how many will attend for ordering our food). I hope everyone had a good time.
The walleye season has been phenomenal according to all of you I’ve talked to. It appears you caught your limits early in the day and had a great time doing it. With all the hot days we had late in the season, many were still able to find the elusive walleyes. Some went to deeper waters while others found them in shallower waters. Nevertheless, everyone seemed to be finding them. It was a great season!
Now it’s time to winterize your boats, spread stories about the great catches you’ve had, and plan for next season.
With autumn here, and winter around the corner (brrrrrr!) I’m starting to think about the events to come for the club. Don’t forget about the Sport & Travel Expo in March. Our club helps with setup and teardown and security for the event. In exchange for that help, we receive a large donation from the promoter, Erie Promotions. We also have members who work at the club booth and our trout pond. We will have the signup boards out soon so anyone who wants to sign up early can do so. I know we have quite a few snowbirds in the club, so you have the ability to sign up now. For the new members who are not familiar with our level of participation, ask a seasoned member or a board member for more information about the event. This is a great way to meet more members, support your club, and get to see a great event. And, just think, your help at the event is your entry ticket for the Volunteer Picnic next year (just fill out the yellow postcard when you work).
I’m going to run for now. Hope to see you at the next meeting!
Until next month…be safe out there!
