From the President's Desk
By Sue Guenther
I want to start this months’ article by saying “Thank You” to all those who helped with the setup and tear down for the Western New York Home Show in late February. Your assistance is greatly appreciated by the promoter who in turn makes a donation to the club.
My next “Thank You” is for those who helped at the 2018 Sport and Travel Expo. We had almost 30 members who showed up to help the vendors with setup. During the event, we had many members who worked the trout pond, the club booth, security, and then tear down.
My final “Thank You” for this month goes to those members (and their spouses) who helped at the Special People Fishing Days at the Club during the week following the Expo. From what I’ve been told, we had record numbers coming to fish in the pond. Thank you to those who helped our visitors with their fishing, those who collected stuffed animals, and those who baked and served all those goodies. What a great club we have where our members volunteer their time to help others.
The Tournament Committee has confirmed the weigh stations. They will be set at Barcelona, Dunkirk, Sunset Bay, and at the Club. The stations are open from 2 to 5 p.m. daily except the last day which will be 2 to 4 p.m. The Club will extend hours daily until 8 p.m., but will also close at 4 p.m. the last day of the tournament. Please stop by and sign up to work a three hour shift at one of the stations. We will train you. It’s not difficult.
The month of March has been interesting to say the least. The temperatures go up and then they go down. The day is clear and sunny and then the snow is blowing making visibility and driving difficult. I’m sure we are all happy to see Spring arrive and hopefully better weather!
Coming up on April 12th will be the State of the Lake meeting at 7 p.m. Mark your calendar so you can come and hear the latest on the condition of the lake and our fishery.
Until next month…be safe out there!
