Christmas Banquet – December 2nd
This year's Chapter Christmas Party Banquet will be held
at the Kent Senior Activity Center (same place as last
year). Doug Williams is our party chairman and will have sign-up
sheets available at the November 15th general meeting.
Be sure and send your fishing pictures to Rich Gregory as
soon as possible so he can start putting the slide show
together. Pictures can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you have good quality items for the silent auction, bring
them and see Greg Hindman for a bid sheet. Donations of items
other than fishing gear are encouraged to keep our non-fishing
family members interested.
Each member should bring a dish to share for the dinner. The
club will furnish a turkey, ham, beer, coffee, water and soft
drinks. There will be wine available as well.
As in years past, there will be a smoked fish contest. Bring
your favorite recipe for tasting. Everyone will have the
opportunity to vote for the best recipe and a prize will be
awarded by the club.
Everyone is also encouraged to bring their favorite lure to
hang on the "lure tree" which will be displayed in the hall.
Each participant will be given a ticket and there will be a
drawing for the tree after the dinner. Winner receives all the
lures on the tree. Lures are to be worth approximately $5.
We hope you and your families will be able to join us this
year for a night of great food, fun and fellowship.
27-28 Mike Woods Memorial outing
Mike Wood Memorial Fall Fishing Outing -- Recap
The Mike Wood memorial fishing outing was October 27-28 at
Wishkah. We had approximately 12 guys attend and fish some of
the local rivers. While some of the guys were scratching out a
few coho due to fairly low water conditions, fishing was tough.
While some of the guys were able to scratch out a keeper coho or
two, many of the fish were dark and not in the mood to bite.
However, there were plenty of chum around to bend rods. Despite
river conditions, we enjoyed the opportunity to get together to
fish, share a great meal and tell some fishing & hunting stories
around the wood stove. Thanks to the guys who stuck around to
clean up and a great big "Thank you" to Darrell Wood for opening
up his home to our group each year.

Nisqually River Access
The Nisqually River runs through Fort Lewis so it is best to get
access to the fort. Access Range Control operates the Area

the Range Complex. The Area Access office is located in Building

Go to the visitor center located at exit 120 on I-5. You will
need your drivers license, insurance information, and
registration for your vehicle. Ask for a pass so that you can go
to the Range office.
