Remember: November is food collection month. Each members that brings 5 non- perishable food items will get a ticket for a chance to win a prize. Last year we were able to collect three hundred food items. We hope to collect even more this year so please remember to pick-up a couple of items for the collection. These donations allowed for 3 families to have food in their pantries for the holidays. Our goal this year is enough for 4 families to have a great holiday!!! Thank-you in advance for your support and giving!!!

They have provided meats, produce and other food products for our club cookouts, and functions such as our Christmas Party, Membership and Awards Party and Challenge Tournaments.

Also, Jim Blalock will have a short class on Fishing Rules, Fish Card Preparation & Fish Species as they pertain to ACGFA. I will have several handouts which I think will help you correctly submit your fish catch. You can also save postage!
