There’s a lot of activity for LOSTU this month.

First we have Stocking the North Mills River on April 2. We’ll meet at the campground parking lot about 10 AM and spend a few hours distributing the fish up and down the river.   As I write this, the forecast is partly cloudy with a high of 63 and afternoon showers. So bring a rain jacket so it won’t rain but in any case, bring waders because you will be going in the water.

We will also be stocking Spring Creek on April 9th. There are only a limited number of volunteers needed so contact our Stocking Chair Curt Campbell at rockygrove.curt@gmail,com to reserve your spot.

Then we have a big fundraising event – we will be helping Orvis host the Orvis Guide Rendezvous. The tentative agenda is:

Tuesday April 10th – Volunteer Dinner hosted by Orvis. (Will be assigning tasks at this event)

Thursday April 12th – 5pm – 6pm Cocktail Party/Registration – Sell Raffle Tickets (LOSTU BOD 5-10 volunteers)

Friday April 13th – Cocktail Party at the Renaissance Hotel Downtown Asheville – Sell raffle tickets (LOSTU BOD 5-10 volunteers)

Saturday April 14th 12 Noon– 7 PM – Orvis Guide Olympics/Down The Hatch Film Event – Highland Brewing, Sell Raffle Tickets (LOSTU BOD 5-10 volunteers)

This agenda is subject to change.

Our Chapter Vice President, Reba Brinkman, is the Lead Volunteer Coordinator as as you can see there is a need for a LOT of help. If you can volunteer please email Reba at


The date of our April meeting has been changed to April 17th. Still at REI at 7 PM. Our new Program Chair, Brown Hobson has arranged for Josh Garris from our friends at Curtis Wright for a presentation which will be entertaining and informative. Hope to see you there.


And a reminder to Board of Directors, that our quarterly meeting will be April 18th at my house at 7 PM.
