2015 Vous Report: THANK YOU!

The 2015 tenth year Rendezvous anniversary is in the books. I want to thank everyone that attended. Your participation has helped SSFFC continue its important programs and projects for another year. I hope everyone had a great time like I did. This Vous was the first one for our many of our new members and 10th for many of us old timers.

The main purpose of the Vous is to get together with old friends, talk fish stories and make new friends. The secondary purpose is to raise funds and bring in new members. I believe both missions were accomplished. Our Kids Academy program is so important that we held two special raffles to raise earmarked funds. We had a donated Yeti cooler and 4 fly boxes containing approx. 250 flies from our top fly tying members: Rob and Ryan Buhler, Allen Bell, Adam Petuskey and Bill Hammons. These items were almost enough to fund the 2016 Kids Academy. We just need a little more from the Kids Academy Pokers night and we will be set for 2016. Plans for another Yeti cooler are already underway and this Yeti will be taken on the road to many shows, outings and awarded at the 2016 Vous.

Big thanks goes out to our friends: Freddie, Phil and Tim for cooking the best tri tip and chicken bbq dinners . Outstanding job gentlemen, the food was delicious. A special thanks goes out to the Woodward Brothers for their donation of their Montana cabin and another special thanks to the Barnes Family for their winning bid on the cabin.

The Stoneflys rocked the canyon with their fun music and grew a big dancing crowd. Big thanks also goes out to everyone that donated raffle items. We also provided space to our important vendors and programs: Redington/Sage, CFR and Sierra Nets.

Thank you to everyone that helped pull the Vous together. Most importantly, thank you to the members that donated, participated and funded the SSFFC. This club is for you, the best Fly Club in the world!!!!

Thank you,
