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.

None of the other chapter events and activities have been canceled or changed at this time. Please follow us on facebook and on our website to keep current.

George Kutskel and Codey Schlemmer participated for our chapter in the Cross Fork redd count on 12/11/16.  This is an annual event done on all the tributaries of Cross Fork.  The count was much lower this year due mainly to the low water in the summer.
