We have a great group to start the new year and we hope to expand the growth of our club and flyfishing along the Jersey Coast.
NEW LOCATION, NEW LOCATION, NEW LOCATION.
That was the buzz of the night. Like stated we have the Bay Center in Ocean City New Jersey as our new meeting place, starting March 17, 2005. We will still have February meeting at our old location.
The new location is right on the water. See Daves link in one of the posts above. The new location will put us right along the coast where we already have many fisherman waiting for our move who are ready join us. They have a nice outside section where we can do premeeting fly casting.
Fly Show workers are all lined up. We will be providing tickets for the show for all those working the booth. I will notify those working how and where to pick them up.
As you know we have been having problems with SJCFA web site. I have made arrangements to change our host, so that our site will run smoother and we will be able to update it better. Hope to have it all switched before the Fly Show.
Dave, Dewees is in the process of changing our flyer to the new location, meeting times, and contacts.
Everyone was excited about the move and the future of the club.
Our new secretary, Steve Croft, is very energetic and will be updating our membership list, applications, and a list of other things so we can better communicate and will be working with Dave Gelona on making it possible to make changes on the web site easier.
Dave Gelona and Frank did and excellent job demonstrating different fly tying techniques to all those interested last night. I believe everyone left excited about SJCFA in 2005.
Steve Croft won the fly raffle, picture to follow.
I quickly tried to put down info about last night. If I missed anything step up and fill in what I missed. Just wanted to get it on to let everyone know what was going on.
Third Thursday is correct, starting in March. Our last meeting at the old location will still be on Tuesday Feb 15th. After that they will all be at the Bay Center.
Librarian, You can mail you application to me. I will send you an email. We are going to make up new applications and we will be starting our year Jan 1st ending Dec 31st. It will make it easier to run being the same as the physical year.
