Most importantly, is the real beginning use of the website as a portal to keep people abreast of what's happening within the Monocacy Chapter, and to help get people interested in what Trout Unlimited can bring to you.
First and foremost is the ability to bring members who are unable to attend the meetings an idea of the discussions that have taken place, and a general idea of the way in which the organization is moving. Hopefully, you're inspired by the steps taken, and can find the time to come down and meet face to face.
Perhaps you're not a current member, but you have an interest in what's happening? One of the benefits is to be able to give information about upcoming presentations and programs that the Monocacy Chapter is planning. We should have a full schedule set for the coming year in early January, and can provide additional updates and minor presentation information right here.
Additionally, several members have expressed interest in sharing some local knowledge or specific information in a series on online presentations and articles. Hopefully, by sharing this knowledge, we can interest people to take an active interest in TU and the conservation of the unique limestone creek that runs through the heart of our urban environment, and you'll be inspired enough to come to an open meeting, make your voice heard and throw in your support for the continued prosperity of the health on the Monocacy Creek, and all our unique Lehigh Valley water and greenways, into 2011 and beyond.
Remember, the 2011 PA fishing lisences are available now and any new lisence purchased in December of 2010 will not expire until January 1st of 2012. Also, for convienence sake, lisences are available for direct purchase over the Internet and can be printed on your home printer from the PFBC via The Outdoor Shop, and there is no additional cost for this option. Remember, a Trout stamp is required to fish the Monocacy Creek and any other trout water in Pennsylvania.
