I would like to wish you and your families a very happy Christmas and great New Year. And keep safe in your travels and above all have enjoy yourself.
The 1st of December will be our last general meeting and Christmas barbecue as well as the Cox-Connell Trophy casting competion. And it would be great for all the members to attend the evening as both Glen Cox and Andrew Connell will be available to present the trophies.
As it will be our last general meeting for this year don’t forget the club rooms are available to members on Thursday nights throughout December and January. And you are bound to meet others members so head up to the club have a cast or maybe tie a fly.
Please note that our last club trip for this year is to the Upper Yarra Warburton 17th of December so try a make it along.
The new year as always looks promising several great trips planned including the 2017 Australia Day trip to Colac Colac. We will be booking a site at the Colac Colac Caravan Park situated on the Murray Valley Hwy which offers some great waterways to fish. Please note that Australia Day falls on a Thursday in 2017 and February sees the club participating in the Darren Percy Birthday Trip Sunday 12th of February 2017 destination to be advised.
All the best for the Festive season and New Year
