February Meeting Features “Slide Show n’ Tell”

Slideshow ScreenFTTU’s February meeting will feature our popular annual “Slide Show n’ Tell”. Members will have photos and/or video of their fishing or outdoors adventures to share with us. In the past we’ve had shows from Alaska to Patagonia and from the Blue Ridge to the Rocky Mountains. Our members get around! The show is open to all, just bring your media on a flash drive and we’ll put it up on the big screen. Your trip need not be from an exotic location, anything from Loyalhanna Creek and beyond is acceptable and of interest to us.

The meeting is scheduled for Wednesday, February 6, 2019 at 6:00 pm at the Nimick Family Education Center in Ligonier (see “Meeting Info” in the sidebar for directions). Business meeting at 6:00, slide shows begin around 7:00. Come for the meeting and learn about FTTU’s exciting projects and activities for 2019.

Should we need to cancel due to inclement weather, a notice will be posted under “Announcements” on the homepage of forbestrailtu.org by 4:30 pm the day of the meeting.

See you there!
