The officers and directors met on August 20, 2020 at the pavilion at Tannery Dam in DuBois to discuss chapter activities and projects. As everyone knows, this has been a crazy year, and many events were canceled. For the first time since 1966, we did not have our Annual Banquet. We were still able to conduct our annual raffle – thank you all who purchased or sold your raffle tickets. The winners of the raffle were: 1st prize Rich Ferrera; 2nd prize Fred Griffith; and 3rd prize Dave Lazorchak. We netted $2459 from the raffle.

We are hoping to get more back to normal in 2021, and we have the Falls Creek Eagles reserved for the Annual Banquet on April 10, 2021. We also are discussing ways to hold the fly-tying round-table.

We still need to hold an annual meeting and election of officers. We have tried to find the best way to do this. After a lot of thought it was decided that we will hold the election outside at the pavilion at the Tannery Dam. We feel that this would be the best as we were going to do a call in, but the logistics just did not seem to fit for an election. Please join us at 6 pm on October 15, 2020 to vote for the officers and directors for the next year.

Nominations for officers are:
President: Codey Schlemmer
Vice President: Matt Marusiak
Secretary-Treasurer: George Kutskel

Please join the meeting if you can. If you have interest in any officer or director position or in making other nominations, please contact George Kutskel. Nominations also can be taken from the floor prior to the election.

We hope everyone stays sane and healthy through this crazy time and hope to see you all soon.

If you need more information, please contact George Kutskel at 814-371-9290 or maksak@comcast.net.

AMCTU Banquet Canceled

We are sad to announce that the 54th annual fundraiser will not be held on April 4. With the concern of spreading a disease that is easily spread, we have elected to refund those who paid their money to attend. Due to the uncertainty of when the danger will be gone and with the start of springtime activities we feel it best to just wait till next year. We have booked the Falls Creek Eagles again and the date is April 10, 2021.

With this said there are some things our members and friends can and need to do. All members received a book of raffle tickets to sell. We hope that you have sold them or purchased them yourself as this will be our ONLY fundraiser this year. Since we hold a small games of chance license the drawing will be held on April 4. So please mail your raffle tickets and money to arrive no later than 11 am April 4 to:

Allegheny Mountain Chapter
PO Box 541
DuBois, PA 15801

We are planning to use the pavilion at the Tannery Dam for the drawing on April 4. We will be there starting at 11 am if you have last minute raffle tickets and money to drop off. The drawing will be held at 3 pm. The drawing will be live streamed on Facebook. No tickets or money will be refunded if received late.

We are still hopeful to have these upcoming events:

Our annual picnic with our fellow TUers in the Iron Furnace Chapter will be held May 19 at the Walter Dick Park on North Fork in Brookville (the fly project). The chapters supply the meats and drink along with plates and tableware. All we ask is that you bring a dish to pass. The fun starts at 5 pm with fishing, eat at 6 pm. then more fishing. This is a family event and a fun time please try and join in.

The chapter picnic is still a go and the date is July 26 at Bendigo State Park. The chapter will provide all the food and drink so all you need do is come and join us. There is no cost to attend we do ask that you rsvp at amctu036@gmail.com to let us know how many will be in your party.
