Fall President's Message - Posted September 28
Saturday we finished our summer with Member Appreciation Day at Diamond Knot Brewery. Over 50 members attended the pizza party to recognize those who have contributed their time and energy to making OFF the best fly club in the region. And we did a number on those pizzas! Fifteen pizzas were consumed in less than 45 minutes. It’s got to be a record. Everyone had a great time. We also welcomed three new members to the club: Ryan May, Daryn Brown and Terry Tradal.
As each committee chair recognized their contributors, it brought to light the many ways our members make all our education, conservation, outings and other events possible. Heading into the fall, it’s time to recharge our committees and start organizing for the months ahead. There are plenty of opportunities to get involved in the club. It’s not a big commitment. You can make a difference with just an hour here and an hour there.
