2017 Rendezvous Forms


The 12th annual Rendezvous is right around the corner on April 8th.  It’s our biggest annual fund raiser and membership drive of the year.  Everyone is invited and signing up is made very easy on-line at: ssffclub.org   A headcount is needed for all the activities, so there is a sign up deadline of April 3.   Funds raised at the Vous supports the valuable club activities for the year.  We are requesting help on the raffle items.  If anyone would like to assist in donating items for the raffle, please bring them to the Vous by 3:00 pm.  The item should be in great shape, new or “almost new” and definitely not broken.  Thank you to the people who have donated items in the past.  The Club really appreciates the items and their contribution towards the overall success of our fund raising efforts.

The main Vous activities will be held at Rivernook Campground and please call them (760) 376-2705 to reserve your spot at the SSFFC discounted price.  Check-in for the Tourney will be at the Fly Shop at 8:00 am.  This will give participants the opportunity to pickup any last minute fly fishing supplies.  The river cleanup is also part of the Tourney, with a prize given to the participant that brings back the most trash.  Over the past years, we’ve had some interesting trash items brought back…… chairs, doors, bar-b-q, etc..  The casting contest will take place on the water, immediately after the Tourney.

I have built an Epic Fiberglass rod to be included the regular raffle and we will have a special separate raffle for a custom built Winston Air 5wt.  There will also be a bunch of other special and unique raffle items.  Freddie is geared up for his world famous tri tip BBQ and he has a few surprises for us.  We are still in the process of booking entertainment, but it will be a rocking time.  And as always, we’ll have the fun and exciting heads or tails game.  I know everyone has been practicing.  Dinner starts at 5:30 pm at Rivernook Campgrounds.
