We received word from the Union Hall where we hold our monthly meetings that all meetings will be cancelled through the end of April. So unfortunately we will not be able to hold our members meetings for March or April. We are sorry for the bad news. We will keep you informed of any changes.
AS of March 15th, the derby is still on!!
We will have to see about the BBQ and ceremony.
This years All PSA Derby will be held on March 27th -29th in Port Townsend. Their will be a Captains Meeting/Pot Luck Friday evening and a BBQ Saturday evening. More information will be mailed to each chapter soon.
This months meeting will be on February 19th. We will be having Jason with NW Straits Foundation as a guest speaker. Jason will be talking about their programs on protecting marine resources, removing lost and abandoned fishing gear, and restoring local beaches and bluffs.
At the last member's meeting we talked about raising the annual dues to $35 per family. We haven't raised the annual dues for over 10 years and with other clubs at $35 or $40 we thought it might be time to match the $35 dues. At this month's board meeting we took a vote and approved the new dues amount. Starting 2020 the new annual dues will be $35. Please let us know if you have any questions or concerns. Thank you
We started off the New Year at our January 15th meeting with a presentation on fishing for blackmouth in the Puget Sound. The presentation covered some go to areas for Area 9 that opened on February 1st along with how to rig for success. Thank you to all that came out. We lucked out with the weather holding off and not snowing us in.
As a club we decided to try and have our swap meet every other year. It has been 2 years since we last hosted one so this year in the month of March we will be host one again. Hope some folks clean out their garages and tackle rooms and come on down. You never know what might show up. There has been some great finds in years past. If you have a hobby or small business and would like to showcase some of your items you are more than welcome to come down. Tables are only 5 dollars each and you have the opportunity to meet and socialize with some great folks. Feel free to shoot our club an email through our website if you have questions or wish to reserve a table.
As of writing this we are still working on putting together a guest speaker for our February 19th meeting but will have an update on our website as soon as we finalize plans. We’d like to remind folks we are a nonprofit club and work with other fellow chapters to help keep you on the water and to keep your voices heard when it comes to helping raise concerns. Our meetings are open to anyone who would like to come down and just see what we are all about.
