The club will be having a table at Tie Fest, a fly tying celebration to be held on February 18th at the Moose Lodge on Route 18 in Queenstown, Maryland. This event is the brainchild of Tony of the TidalFish site and , if last year's Tie Fest is any indication, this one will be a must-go for the off season. Here is a link to Tony's post which gives more details:

Last year, there was a surprise guest you might have heard of. He goes by the nickname "Lefty!" Who knows who might be there this year!

Any member who comes is welcome to hang out at the club table, tie flies, and meet and greet. Post here if you are coming so we can llook out for you.[grin]
