A FEW NOTES-- updated 4/7/20

1. It is with a heavy heart the we report the death of one of our long time members, Dick Pearce.  He passed away peacefully on April 5, 2020.  In addition to being a retired English Literature Professor  at Wheaton College, he was a mainstay in our club.  He tied at many meetings and was always there to share his vast knowledge of tying with others.  Jeff has written a note to his wife expressing  condolences on behalf of the UFTRI membership. A service in celebration of his life will be held at a later date. 

2. Trout Fishing is open in RI!!! You are allowed to fish on either an odd or even day depending on the first letter of your last name.  A valid permit is needed for any angler over 15 years old.  Please go to the NEWSLETTER tab to read an announcement from RI TU225 that includes an article from Alex Kuffner with details of this opening.

3. The May 6 Tying Meeting is cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.  We are anticipating that social gathering will be allowed by our Sept 2020 meeting but we will confirm that as we get closer to that time.
Additionally, while our bylaws mandate when we post the slate and hold the elections, the Board of Directors made an executive decision to hold off voting for officers and directors due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
