I am very excited to be part of a club that is growing not only in numbers but in value to the needs of the surrounding communities. Since our last news letter we have completed our annual Spring Trout Derby and award presentations and BBQ, hosted a camp out of the Girl Guides earlier in April, completed the repairs to our new (to us) events trailer, our fire place at the club house has a new lease on life, the San Sun compose toilet has been installed inside the club house, the mover for our tractor has been repaired and much more is planned.
This coming weekend (yes the long one) Sat. May 20th. we need everyone who can spare a little time to help Nick locate the area that is restricting the water flow into the hatchery we need people and we need ideas the situation is very serious.
On another note all the brook trout have been stocked into the rivers, the rainbow will be stocked at a later in the month.
The school hatchery program has been a great success we will be collecting the the fish later this month, we have 4 schools involved in hatching trout in the classroom, there has been a call to further this program in more schools we have 2 in Collingwood 1 in Stayner and 1 in Wasaga Beach at this time.
On the 25th. of May the students from Mountainview School will be coming up for a hatchery tour a hike along the Bruce trail and a luncheon it would be good for us to be there and help with this event and hatchery tour. On Friday the Girl Guide from the blue mountains will be having a weekend camping at our club house and grounds.
I would like to thank everyone for your part in making things happen.
Yours in Conservation
Rick Baldry President.
