It's time again for a Yogurtini Fundraiser! If you don't know already how good the yogurt is, how much
fun we have, and how the fundraisers are for a good cause, then you will want to join us. The statements are all true,
and you should come out on and experience it firsthand. The camaraderie with fellow AFC members and
delicious yogurt will be worth the trip, and your purchase does benefit our NAU scholarship fund.
Make plans now to join us on Tuesday, September 16th, from 5:00 to 8:00 PM, at Yogurtini in Glendale, on the northwest corner of 59th Avenue and West Thunderbird Road, next to Smashburger. Hope to see you there.
Recall that AFC partnered with Community of Grace Lutheran Church in Peoria on two kid's events: a casting clinic on April 12th, and a fly tying class on May 3rd. While the turnout was not as robust as imagined, it was still a success. A special thank you to all who helped.
As a result of the efforts, one of the church members graciously donated a beautiful Fenwick, 7-1/2 foot, 6-weight, fiberglass rod with reel. At the May general meeting, we began selling squares at $5 each (100 squares total). We're about 30% full so there is plenty of time to purchase your squares. As soon as the board is filled, we will have a drawing, and one lucky person will win the rod and reel! All proceeds will support the Steven Lockett Memorial Youth Fish Camp.
AFC MISSION STATEMENT: The Arizona Flycasters Club is a non-profit, tax-exempt organization that is dedicated to encourage, support, and educate its members and the community in the sport of fly fishing, the techniques of fly fishing and the ethics of "catch and release" which promote the conservation of fish and their habitats. The organization's activities also promote friendship, enjoyment, sportsmanship and safety.
Monthly meetings, are open to the public, and include featured speakers and presentations on fly fishing topics. Monthly fishing outings to various local, state and regional destinations allow us to enjoy our wonderful natural resources with friendly people. The Club conducts classes in fly-casting, fly tying, rod building, net building and fishing tactics. AFC also provides college scholarships and financial and logistical support to conservation and education projects. The Club is affiliated with the Federation of Flyfishers (FFF), an international organization for fly fishers.
