White Water Bucket Brigade-NOV. 21st
 
Ok all.... it's that time of year again for the buckets to show up to help stock White Water.

THERE IS A NEW PROTOCOL!!! PLEASE READ BELOW.

Beginning this month (Nov. 2017), the state will start using Track It Forward for volunteer hour tracking. This new hour recording platform allows you to enter your own volunteer hours, see your time sheet, and see where you are on the path to incentives.

This volunteer hour-recording platform will replace any current time recording efforts, allowing WRD to become more efficient. Given that this is a new program, we do ask that you be patient with this new process.

Please go to the GA DNR website to complete the volunteer application. Link below. It takes only a few seconds to register and it will help if you can get this done before the stocking.

For those that don't or can't register online, it does not prohibit you from coming out. A PDF of the waiver will be attached to this thread and I'll bring copies to the event as well. There is a new waiver so please don't use any old ones from past events.

https://events.gooutdoorsgeorgia.com...t.aspx?id=5297




When: Tuesday November 21, 2017. The truck plans on arriving by 10:00 am. But as we all know Atlanta traffic, the truck could arrive early or a little late. Please plan ahead as parking is limited. Also do not block the entrance for the stocking truck!

Where: Chattahoochee River at White Water park. Don't forget to pay for parking or better yet display your annual pass! 1425 Indian Trail NW Sandy Springs GA 30327

What do I need? Signed waiver and please bring a CLEAN 5 gallon bucket. This means no nasty chemicals, concrete or any other stuff in it.

What should I expect? Be prepared to tote your bucket of water full of splashing fish to the river. You will need to carry the bucket approximately 200 feet to the river. You will get wet so put on your waders, rain jacket and whatever else you feel necessary. This is a rain or shine event.


This is a great opportunity to bring any kids that are out of school to experience this stocking. Of course there will be a few that will stick around and educate our new friends before they swim off to other sections of the river. Junk flies are the fly of the day, but be prepared to swap them up occasionally also.

Looking forward to seeing all the happy faces and let me know if there are any questions.

Cool beans. I just added my stuff to the volunteer database. It was painless (at least, on a regular PC).

I didn't see it but does adding one's name to the volunteer database also cover the waiver? Or is that a separate requirement?

Finally was able to get the waiver uploaded. Also, I confirmed that if you log in and go thru the online volunteer process registration you DO NOT NEED TO SIGN A WAIVER.


Please post if you can make it. Would love to see some new and old faces at this event.

And the weatherfolks say it should be sunny cloudy and a high of 59 on Tuesday, although chilly in the morning.

Will be there are well, hope to meet some of you. I'm trying to get my brother to come out and teach him how to fly fish on some fresh stockers

Correct me if I'm wrong but that is a pellet fly made from foam right? And nail polish spot on top? Might have to tie some up as well as some brown unweighted and lightly weighted mops
