President's Message for April 2015


 Happy Easter


Elections will soon be upon us so if anybody has a person they feel would make an addition to the present executive put their name or your name in the running. Contact Barry McKee, he is the person on the Steering Committee. Thanks to all.

We had a great meeting last month short of Mother Nature trying to raise havoc, but again a lot was done. We had our draws for the early bird people who purchased tickets and booked room for the convention. The ticket winner was the Draper Family and the room prize went to the Mountjoy Family. I have already booked the Friday off so we can get ready for the festivities.

The Hamilton shows and auction was a lot of fun and got a few new fish for our fish room. We had a chance to meet with old friends and catch up with the good and the bad of the long winter. There is always lots of fun at whatever you are doing.

I would like to make a Presidents Challenge to the entire club Presidents to make a donation to the prize table at the convention. This has been done for a lot of years and it makes it more fun if some people win something. So if all the clubs make a donation we should have a nice prize table.

Thanks to Ed for another fantastic crock pot full of hot food on a cold blustery day. All that were there got a belly full. The draws have been a lot of fun and we will continue with them. It is always nice when you can win something to take home. Thank you to all that have donated.

If your club has not sent a rep to the meetings you are missing out on all the news and goings on in the association. It opens doors to many with ideas and experiences and we can learn from the expertise of others. The CAOAC website is constantly being upgraded with information about all that CAOAC has to offer all the member clubs.

Is it trout chow or bunny droppings?

Take a chance
