THE PRESIDENT'S LINE________________

It has been my great honor and pleasure to serve as President these past two terms.  As you have noticed, I am not running this time…maybe later.  These two years have been wonderful beyond words.  I have learned so much about fish and about fishing (although I am still waiting for that "Really Big One").  I've also learned a great deal about our Club, our members, and the folks who work so tirelessly to make this the Great Club that we are.  Each of us has made so many good friends through the Club…and lost some, as well.

Congratulations to the new Officers and Board Members.  I wish you, along with the continuing Leaders, the very best in the coming year.  Our Club will have lots to do in 2002.  Meetings, work parties, fish-ins, kids' fishing day, Angler Education, ODFW & WDFW projects, and so much more.  I will see you there.

Congratulations, also, to each Member.  We are having an excellent start in this New Century.  Membership is up, and more of our members are becoming more active.  Keep on keeping on.  Happy Holidays from Wanda and me, and Tight Lines in the New Year.
