BIG Council News!!!
Mark your calendars NOW as the 1st Texas Council Expo will be June the 12th, 13th, and 14th in New Braunfels Texas. New Braunfels was selected for many reasons. There was a very successful event there in 2010, and is an excellent centralized location. New Braunfels is also home of the fastest growing club in the state and is a mace for fly fishing activities annually.
With an event, this large, we need volunteers. An Expo committee has been formed, and is pursuing our Expo Chairman. If you wish to interview for that role, or just want to help volunteer for this exciting, first ever expo of the Texas Council, please contact us. We will need help in many different areas. Casting, tying, registrations, set up / takedown, meals, if you wish to be a vendor, let us know. Anyone can help!!!
Come join us for Oktoberfisch!! Junction, Texas. Support the Fredricksburg Fly Fishers, and have a great time!!! Go here for details:
