Just as a follow-up: we are in need of items for the bucket raffle at the Seminar on Jan 20th. If there is anything you would be willing to donate (box of flies, surplus equipment, the Christmas present you don't really need) it would be gratefully received. Any donations can be dropped off at the club on Weds 10th or 17th

Tickets to the seminar will be available at club meetings as well as on Eventbrite.
