Our next meeting will be at the Marina Activity Center, Thursday, July 6th at 6:30 PM. We will have delicious Pizza and cold liquid refreshments.
The minutes of the June meeting were previously published. This notice is the announcement for the July OCA meeting.
I hope everyone is getting some fishing in. On the OCA FaceBook Page is the picture of a happy angler, Greg Starks, with a nice clipped Coho. I will bring the various “go to” lures that I use fishing for Salmon in the Ocean to our July meeting. I’m sure Greg will be happy to share some of his fishing stories.
There is much to discuss regarding the upcoming OCA banquet. I have had great success soliciting the donors, who were on my list (I still have a few to contact). In addition we have purchased some really desirable auction items. I believe we are going to have a fantastic banquet, one to remember! That said, we still need more volunteers to help out at the banquet, ie., set-up, raffle ticket sales, live auction spotters and tear-down. So what else do we need? For the raffle and silent auction, we need more household donations (we have quite a few fishing items). Our barrel of liquor is more like a bucket of liquor, we need more wine or liquor. We can’t wait until the banquet for the donations, please bring what ever you would like to donate to the meeting this Thursday. A number of members have pledged to donate cakes and pies for the live auction, they should be brought to the banquet, where we will put them on display. There are a few tickets not yet sold. I have reserved tickets for everyone, that I have talked to that are planning to attend. So, you still have an opportunity to buy a ticket for yourself or a friend.
OCA hats are available and we have Membership Cards for those who didn’t receive them in April / May / June. We will make another run of membership cards, after the banquet.
The knot strength tester will be available, bring your fishing line and test your favorite knots.
Ever hear of Pyrosomes? You’ll learn about them at our meeting!
