to the Bellevue/Issaquah Chapter 109 of Trout Unlimited
Monthly Meeting - Chapter
monthly meetings are held on the 2nd Wednesday of each month,
beginning at 7:00 pm.
The next meeting will be held on October 8. We will not have a speaker
for this meeting, but rather will be showing a movie titled "Wild Reverence."
This movie is intended to educate and bring awareness to the plight of
Wild Steelhead. More information can be found at - http://www.northforkstudios.net/.
This promises to be a very informative and eye-opening movie.
In addition, there will be the usual project updates, fishing stories,
raffles, good food and brew.
This is the time of the year to consider new officers for the upcoming
year. If you are interested in one of these positions, contact
Robert Metzger at the meeting.
Come to the meeting and bring your friends to see this movie!
