General Chapter Meeting Information

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. With the COVID-19 Pandemic, we are currently holding virtual meetings which are available for viewing on YouTube by clicking on the Theme title.

Inclement Weather Policy

Since we meet at a Montgomery County facility we will be subject to the county closing policy.

****
When Montgomery County Recreation must close or cancel programs due to inclement weather or other circumstances related to participant and staff safety the first notification is made through Montgomery County’s emergency notification system, Alert Montgomery. Alert Montgomery provides accurate, immediate emergency notifications from Montgomery County to your cell, work or home phone, via text, email or voice message.
Real-time emergency updates can also be accessed at:

Given that participants and employees often travel distances and weather conditions may vary considerably across the county, residents are advised to exercise caution and consider personal safety as the first priority.

If you’d like to receive free alerts (in event of a major crisis, emergency, or severe weather event) for Montgomery County, sign up for Alert Montgomery.

“Summer Vacation Show & Tell.”

Adventure Tales from PPTU Members

September 15, 2021 @ 7:00PM

Summer is winding down but you wouldn’t know it with the heat! It’s about time for a cool spell, to sit back and relax among your fishing friends. Have you vacationed this summer to an exciting location? Have you ventured out locally and recorded the action? Hopefully yes, and you’re willing to share with the group. If you haven’t had much fun, then feel free to sit back and enjoy the adventures of others as we get together for the first time in several months.

We were hoping this first meeting would be in person, but to keep our PPTU members safe we’re doing more Zoom meetings. For the near future, relax in your living room, kick back with a drink and enjoy this meeting hosted by our own members.

It won’t take much to imagine yourself standing in another’s shoes enjoying the scenery and hopefully, some cool water and big fish.

If you wish to share any of your adventures, please send me your summer pics with location info:
