In forming a club... Walla² Fly Fishers - Part II

An email to Don Davis of the Walla Walla Union-Bulletin
... last night was our second gathering. Last week we basically had a get acquainted meeting of 11 fly fishers from the local area. In that group's meeting we felt it worthy to do a follow up meeting again last evening and get down to the business of club formation. Last night we had 16 fly fishers present at our meeting. The group voted to become a FFF "Charter Chapter" - same as the Blue Mtn Flycasters - for all the goods and services that FFF offers. We discussed the objectives and goals as currently perceived for the formation of this new organization.
We decided to study the constitution / by-laws as prescribed by FFF for being a Charter Chapter in the next month, (Skip Pritchard will be sending this out via email). We felt it would be good to make our own by-laws around those guidelines, and have an election of officers to put this organization on the streams and rivers (fishing) ASAP.

Our meetings are currently set to be the second Wednesday of the month, probably September through June with fishing vacation the months of July & August. Next meeting will be Wednesday, 8 April at 7:00 p.m. in the Dietrich (Dome) Activity Ctr. on the Walla² Community College campus. This is with all going according to PLANS.

Respectfully submitted,
Dale McKain --- Reporting
