Potomac-Patuxent Chapter - Trout Unlimited

General Chapter Meeting Info

A featured part of almost every month's membership meeting is the guest speaker program.  The Board of Directors spends a lot of time planning and arranging for the featured speakers. We begin by designing a general theme for each month's program and then follow up by identifying and booking potential speakers.

PPCTU Annual Flea Market!!!
February 21, 2018

You've been finding, cleaning out, reconditioning your equipment, right??? You probably have stuff you haven't used in a year or more, gifts you don't use, and some duplicates. Maybe your replaced a rod or reel. Maybe you got a new fly tying vice.

Maybe you are looking for a new rod, reel, sling pack or whatever. Or a friend is. Or you are just starting out and looking for some deals on gear. Or you are trading up as you gain experience and you are looking for a nicer rod or reel.

We've got a deal for you - - - - sell this stuff at our February Meeting Flea Market for some cash and support PPTU. All we ask is that a portion of the proceeds, minimum 10%, be donated to the Chapter to further our mission. So clean out that back room, car trunk, garage – you and your spouse will be glad you did. Your unused item is another person's gold.

Additionally, the Chapter has a load of equipment fly tying materials, and other items donated over the past year that we will be selling.

Sellers, please register your items by obtaining an inventory sheet from Bob Kaiser by emailing me at kaiskat4@yahoo.com. Complete the inventory sheet, email it back to me, and we'll prepare tags for your items, which you can attach to your items at the meeting. We will collect payments from buyers throughout the meeting, and distribute proceeds to each seller at the end of the meeting.

Buyers, bring cash or your checkbook for fastest checkout (credit cards accepted, too). You'll find lots of good stuff to bring home (or hide from your spouse or significant other).

As we get closer to February 21, we will add to the list of items that will be for sale.

Hope to see you there!

Tight Lines,
Bob Kaiser
