FFI Picnic

Posted in General on July 11, 2018 by flyfishersofidaho

Hey Everyone, we have our summer picnic coming up in a couple of weeks. It will be July 20th, 6 to 9pm at Winstead Park in Boise. Same place as last year. It is very important that we know how many are going to attend so please email me back if you are going and how many are attending with you (wife, kids, girlfriend, Both, etc.)

 

I am asking that those attending please bring a side dish to share with everyone. If your last name ends in A thru L, please bring a dessert. And if your last name ends in M thru Z, please bring a salad or appetizer. The club will be providing hamburgers and hot dogs, condiments, paper plates, plastic ware, etc.

 

For those that are wanting some instruction on casting we will have a couple rods set up for that. There will be plenty of room to cast.

 

If anyone knows of a member that did not get this email, please feel free to forward it to them. I probably didn’t get their email and I apologize for that.

 

I’m looking forward  to seeing everyone on the 20th.
