2018 Northeast Regional Rendezvous

June 8-10
High Peaks Resort - Lake Placid, New York

Join fellow anglers and TU volunteer leaders from across the Northeast on June 8-10, 2018 in Lake Placid, NY, for some great fishing, enlightening presentations, inspiring dialogue and engaging camaraderie with those who share your dedication to TU and our mission.

TU regional rendezvous are occasions to be inspired – by the work of TU staff, lessons from volunteer leaders, and conversations with newfound friends. They are also an excellent opportunity to discuss the unique issues facing the region as well as a chance to network and build relationships with fellow TU volunteer leaders.

Friday, June 8

Free day of hosted fishing and no host dinner with local New York TU volunteers. Sample some of the finest fly fishing around in the Adirondacks region during the peak of mayfly hatches in this fabled fishing destination! Your local New York TU hosts will take you to some of their most special waters – whether boulder-hopping after native brook trout in a small stream or chasing larger browns in larger rivers. Once registered for the fishing day, you will be sent a short questionaire asking about your fishing preferences.

Following fishing, stop and enjoy a meal on your own, or in a group, at one of the great Lake Placid area restaurants. A special Cocktail Reception, with the frst beer or wine courtesy of the NY Council, will be held from 9-11 p.m. at The Lake House, across the street from High Peaks Resort.

Saturday's full-day session will include breakfast and lunch networking, group discussions, concentrated workshops and opportunities for council and chapter leaders to share successes and discuss common challenges. A full agenda will be posted online soon.

Saturday Night, June 9 – Fundraising Dinner Hosted by the NY Council and Networking
Following the day's meetings, join your fellow TU members, volunteers and staff from for a great dinner hosted by the NY Council, a fun raffle and chance to network with one another.
