October 2017 Presidents Message

Welcome. After a brief summer break we’re back at it in full swing. Please check out the Club website “blog” page for information or updates on upcoming events, trips and outings.

 

Our regularly scheduled business meetings began again at Pennbrooke Fairways on the 6th of September. Our September evening presentation was a presentation by Scott Henett on "Fly Fishing Cockroach Bay Preserve State Park”. We had an excellent turnout! This month’s presentation will be by Capt. Mark Benson on “The American Shad of the St. Johns River” and should be a good one! The presentation will be back at the Wildwood Community Center. We’ll also have fly casting out on the lawn and fly tying upstairs, both beginning at 5:30pm.
