Fort Worth Fundraiser Very Successful April 30 – Plus May EventsShannon May 7, 2013 0 COMMENTS
Once again, we had a very successful fund raising auction on April 30, in University Christian Church at TCU. Thanks to the splendid, hard working effort of Eric James, our Chairman, along with a multitude of volunteers from the club, we collected a 19% increase in funds over last year. This will be used to run the club, educate others and support charities such as Reel Recovery, Casting for Recovery and Project Healing Waters. For the first time we ran 10 30-second ads on WBAP Radio. There were around 100 folks in attendance from all over the Metroplex and we should gain some new members.
Our May meeting will be Tuesday the 7th along the Trinity River across from Botanic Gardens, beginning at 4:30 PM. Enter the park at the first entrance north of I-30. Our Certified Casting Instructors will be on hand to help you improve your technique or start from scratch. We have many new members who will benefit from learning the basics of placing food in front of the fish
The May outing will be at Bill Ward’s Ranch on May 18 near Mexia (for you Yankees, that’s pronounced Meh HAY ah). Look for Mike Mendez’s write-up. This is a great place to meet new and old friends in a fun environment around the lake. During the same weekend, the Caddo Lake conclave will be put on by the East Texas Fly Fishers at Caddo Lake State Park. Contact Russell Husted for details.
