AFF Annual Family Faux Potluck 2020-08-18

Online event

Faux Potluck 2020 Instead of having our normal member meeting, let's have a faux potluck dinner where the whole family is invited! Instead of a potluck this year because of COVID 19 there won’t be a potluck and sharing of food. This year bring your own dinner and drinks to share only among family members. Please wear masks as much as possible and maintain 6ft separation, that is 2/3 of a standard fly rod or about as far as I can cast. AFF will NOT supply cutlery, plates, cups, and napkins. Paid members and families and their guests are invited, so are all of you on meetup. Come to the faux potluck, and let us get to know each other. Lake Tabeaud [pronounced Ta boo] is a small body of water with a small park next to it. The lake has plenty of trout, so bring your rod and fish it before, during or after we eat! Let's start gathering around 5:00 and eat around 6:00. Please RSVP, we look forward to seeing you at the faux potluck!
