This is a much anticipated event, a great chance to win marvelous prizes. Last year, we raffled over 300 items donated by members and vendors. In addition to the raffle, we also will recognize numerous individuals who have been instrumental in the club's operations and projects. For anyone new to the club, this is an excellent way to build relationships and have a great time.
We expect this to be a spectacular event, but it's not possible without your support. It's not too early to begin planning your donations. Donations can be brought to the general meetings beginning in December. Brad Johnson also is available to coordinate pick-up of donations. If you are donating a large item (physical size), due to storage space limitations, we request that you store the item until just before the banquet. Brad will coordinate getting the item to the banquet, and if storage is a problem until then, we will make accommodations.
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.
