Default Small Stream Improvement on the 28th

I’m dropping this here because of the stream, and also because the Events and Happenings subforum gets very little play. Mods feel free to move.

Since we are constrained from sponsoring these events (for the time being), Splatek, myself, and several others are going to take the lead on doing this in an “unofficial” capacity. We do not have to “officially” be NGTO to “be NGTO”.

This is simply a group of friends (who happen to be NGTO’ers) that are going to be working to attend small stream workdays, cleanups, and other events that we SHOULD be working on.

We do spend a lot of time utilizing the resource. So we should make more of an effort to give back, and maybe let some of the other organizations the carry the insurance be helpful to us.

NGTO can be a wonderful “Mobilizing” device given our google exposure and ease of access. If this access is something that can’t change, then I suggest we use it for good to mitigate some of the pressure our exposure can bring to local waters.

We are targeting the Foothills TU chapter’s Wilkes Creek Stream Improvement Day on July 28th to try to show up in force and help the streams that help us through the workweek.

More dates will be to come and hopefully we can build momentum among us to work towards using our considerable membership to do some good.

NGTO has a lot of value to add to our fisheries. Let’s show it, eat some good food, make some new friends, get our backs a little sore, and hit some water afterwards.

Please post below if you have interest in the 28th.

It pains me that we can’t do things like this “officially” for the time being, but as Buck Henry pointed out it really is a liability, logistical and money issue.

Remember this is UNOFFICIAL and INFORMAL! And in no way is reflective of a directive by the BOD or NGTO in any capacity. Just a group of friends trying to do something, that hopefully builds into something else that moves the needle.

Default That's the way you do it!

Well done Alex! As stated, plugging into this Foothills TU project is the way to get your hands dirty and help out! And using our website to drum up resources is one of the huge benefits of NGTO's message board.

Remember, TU chapter websites just do not get the kind of exposure and traffic that we do here, so please use this message board for stuff like this!!!!

As I said earlier count me in! I’m really looking forward to it. I haven’t done anything like this before.

This is the type of stuff that gets us "street cred" in the fishing community. I will be there and encourage others to make an effort.

Ill try to get out there pending doc's clearance.
We are the music-makers,
And we are the dreamers of dreams,
Wandering by lone sea-breakers
And sitting by desolate streams;
World losers and world forsakers,
On whom the pale moon gleams.

Crap.... working in the AM and nieces birthday later that day.

We need more of these! Just takes a few to spearhead them.
I am officially upgrading Gatorbyte from "fly in my ointment" to "thorn in my side". If he happens to elevate himself to "pain in my a$$" I'm gonna blame it on RScott.
