The 2017 TU NORTHEAST REGIONAL MEETING/RENDEZVOUS is scheduled to take place in New Jersey from May 5-7. Join fellow conservationists, anglers and volunteers from across the region.
To quote TU National: TU’s Regional rendezvous are occasions to be inspired, to celebrate all we are accomplishing together and to commit ourselves to the important work ahead. They also offer opportunity for fun and camaraderie with excellent fishing opportunities, evening social activities and networking throughout. Open to all members – and your friends. More details to come.
We all should be grateful to learn, that chapter member Derek Groff has stepped up to volunteer his time and knowledge, and to join our leadership team in the capacity of Education Committee Chair. In the months and years to come, Education, in close cooperation with the Conservation and Membership Committees, will take on the challenge of making our chapter’s cold water conservation efforts even more visible and worthy for the general public’s interest.
Thank you Derek! And thank you to all who had a hand in making 2016 another memorable year for this chapter. A HAPPY, HEALTHY AND FISHY NEW YEAR TO ALL.
