May 23rd general meeting

Our next general meeting will be on Monday, May 23, at the Rapides Westside Library in Alexandria. Time is 6:30pm.

This month we welcome Kenny Robertson as our guest speaker.  Kenny is a wildlife agent for the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries, and also president of the Cotile Lake Environmental Association (CLEAN).  Kenny will talk about fishing and boating regulations, and safety on the water.  He will also talk about CLEAN and some of the activities they are working on.

Due to the number of business items, Kenny's presentation will start the meeting. 

Also on the agenda:
- The club has received 15 rods from Roger Breedlove as a donation.  We'll be selling off these rods - 5 per month - at our May, June and July meetings.  Money raised will help club projects.

- The club has purchased 10 tickets for North Louisiana Fly Fishers Masters Series, "A Day with Bob Clouser" on Saturday, July 23.  Tickets are $40 each, payable to Kisatchie Fly Fishers.  We'll be selling tickets at this meeting.

- The club has 8 tickets for the CCA Cenla banquet on Thursday, June 9th.  KFF will be making a donation, and will have a table at the event. If interested, please contact Morris Houck or come to the meeting.
