As you all know, the 50th Anniversary Banquet and Conservation Fundraiser will be on January 31, 2015.  The banquet organizing committee has agreed to offer 20 free raffle tickets for every two (2) reservations made at the same time. You and your spouse, significant other, another club member or fishing buddy will receive 20 raffle tickets just for making your reservation together before December 31, 2014. So make sure to take advantage of this incentive and make your reservation now.

The upcoming event is particularly special as it will serve to celebrate a major milestone:  The 50th Anniversary of the Flycasters of San Jose!   Portions of the evening will be set aside to celebrate this significant milestone.  And now, you have a special incentive to make your reservation early.  As always, there will be some high value bucket raffle and silent auction prizes for you to win as we have offered in recent banquets.

Be sure to look for the Prize List on the Flycasters web site in December as well as the list of our generous Donors with a hot link to the donor’s web site.  Use that opportunity to familiarize yourself with the many great prizes you will have the opportunity to win.

You can make your reservation online using PayPal by going to the Flycasters web site, www.flycasters.org, then go to the “Meetings” tab to get to the drop down menu with the “Online Store” or send in the reservation form in the Flylines along with your check or give your reservation form and check to Mike Culcasi or Chuck Hammerstad at the club meetings in November, December, or January.

Don’t miss this special event and the presentation of the club awards including the “Angler of the Year” and the highly coveted “Broken Paddle Award.”  Mark January 31, 2015 on your calendars now!

Join us for a one-day Fishout at the O’Neil Forebay, just east of the San Luis Reservoir.    Bring a float tube or a boat to go after good size stripers  by stripping in Clousers.   The gates open at 6:00am.   All watercraft need to be inspected at the check-in station.

 

At noon, we will have a BBQ near the boat launch.   Bring something to cook and a salad to share.   If you have a small BBQ, bring it.

 

No need to sign-up.  Just come.
