There’s been no busier month for Upper Chattahoochee TU members. First Tom Schmeltzer led us in the Trout In the Classroom release on March 1. On March 8, UCCTU hosted the Georgia Council of all of the Georgia Chapters at their quarterly meeting at Ippolito’s. Thank you to the many Chapter Officers and Board members who devoted their Saturday morning to networking with other Chapter leaders and learning about and working on the activities of the Council. Saturday, March 15 UCTU Program Chair Ron Cheslock’s team of fly tiers represented us, along with teams from other Georgia TU Chapters at “Tie One On” at Bass Pro Shops
As our UCCTU website calendar is outdated, let me give you a couple important upcoming dates. Saturday, June 21 we are needed on a stream restoration project at Pretty Branch. And on Saturday, July 26 we are needed at Martin Branch. This will continue previous year’s work the Chapter has performed on both of these brook trout streams. Note that the Martin Branch date is a change from an earlier announcement.
Please pay attention to other notices in the Newsline on dates for Sweep the Hooch, Fishing Dayz, and the Spring Fishing Trip.
We are experimenting with TU National's micro site for UCCTU. It allows multiple Chapter leaders to post information. Please check it out at ucc.tu.org. NOTE: No "www" prior to web address.
