Wyoming Fly Casters
Hello Again Flycasters,
I hope that everyone has been staying cool on the hot days that we have had and taken the opportunity to get out and do some fishing. This month I may seem a little long winded but we have been handling what I feel is some important business over the last couple of months and I want to cover that for those that have not been able to make the meetings. The board put together a committee to take applications and screen applicants for funding projects. George Axlund is the Chair of the committee with Spencer Amend, Janet Sowell, Bruce Lessig and I rounding out the group. We put together an application form to be used by applicants and received 10 back. Each applicant was asked to show how their project fit with the mission of the Wyoming Flycasters. At that point we sat down and culled that down to six projects that were presented to the board for approval. Those six are: 1. Water level loggers (WGF) 2. 3 sets of steps for river access at the Flycasterâ€™s Memorial Landing 3. Project Learning Tree & Wild Workshop 4. LaBarge Creek Fish Passage 5. Access Yes (WGF) 6. Encampment River Watershed Restoration The project managers have been notified and a contract will be drawn up for each project. Over the course of the next several months we hope to have the project managers or a representative come to a general meeting and speak to the club about their project and answer any in depth questions. If you have any questions or would like more information on any of these projects feel free to contact me and I will get a copy of the project proposal to you. With that being said, the program for the July general meeting will be a presentation on the Access Yes program and what our contribution will do for the program. In August, Lars Alseger will be there to talk to us about the next stage of the Memorial Landing project. In September our regular meeting will be our annual BBQ at the club house. Please consider bringing a dish to pass to accompany those hot off the grill items. In October we hope to have a representative from Project Learning tree in to speak to us about their project and the work they do with teachers and children relating to fishing and the outdoors. Our summer seemed slow in coming and now appears to be flying past at blinding speed. This is a reminder for upcoming outings this summer.
