Club Banquet 2018

October 13th, 2018 Sedgwick County Extension Education Center


The date is set for the Flatland Fly Fishers 2018 annual banquet, so get this date put on your calendar.  This event helps the club raise money so we can put on programs, bring in speakers and do conservation work.  For instance in 2017 we donated $500 to the Kansas Alliance for Streams and Wetlands for work they are doing to help protect Kansas waters.  This is also a perfect time for strengthening our fly fishing bonds with other club members.  We will have raffle prizes, Neal is once again cooking our main meal and will have have dutch oven desserts made by Dwan and Danny.

The date is set and the building is reserved.  Not all the following details are have been discussed at this time.  This is what we did last year and sure this year will be similar so we are leaving this information at this time for your reference.
