SVTU Monthly Chapter Meeting, January 18, 6:30

posted Jan 6, 2012, 6:39 AM by James Josefson

At our last meeting we were given the details of the lawsuit brought against Dargan Coggeshall for fishing on the Jackson River near Smith Bridge.  He gave us a complete overview of what led to the lawsuit and the implications of this case on other streams in the Commonwealth of Virginia.  He is asking that we donate to the Virginia Rivers Defense Fund to help cover the cost of his legal fees.  Chapter member and State Council member Urbie Nash has agreed to match donations from other chapter members.  He will donate matching amounts combined up to $1000.00 from other members.  Chapter member Doug Stegura has agreed to donate the proceeds from the sale of his landing nets and wood fly boxes (on display at South RIver Fly Shop).  We will discuss options for a chapter donation at our next meeting.  For more information on the suit please visit our website or www.  

Our next meeting will be held on Wednesday, January 18.  The meeting will be held at Jim Heafner's home.  The address is 607 Oak Ave, Waynesboro, VA. 

Please remember to park on 14th street or in the small parking lot on the corner of 14th and Oak (Eggleston Parking Lot).  Please enter through the side door on the right side of the house.  There is a Trout Unlimited sign by this door.  The meeting will take place in the basement.

I look forward to see you at the meeting
