No meeting in July

Our meetings are the first Thursday
of the month

No meeting this month to enable our members to get a head start on the 4th of July three day weekend. We will have our family outing this month Pathfinder Reservoir on July 19th at the shelter above the marina. Bring a friend.

. Our June family outing went well. Fish cleaning was provided by Larry Rue and Buddie Dunn. Our cooks were Howard Ewart and Roy Harrington with their wifes Nina and Lotus made sure everybody had enough food. Again they did a fine job. Larry Rue won the big fish plaque with a 20.5" walleye. We have some pictures of the event on our web site that were provided by Harv Gloe. Click here to see photos of our June, 2008, outing

At our last monthly meeting it was suggested we buy an enclosed trailer to hold the fishing poles that will be coming soon. It would handling the poles much easier and by putting the club graphics on the side of the trailer would give us more exposure. We have been looking for a trailer that would suit our needs.

We are still waiting for the grant check that will allow us to buy $10,000 worth of fishing poles. We still have some poles left from out 2007 allotment. Those will be given away at a kids event coming up this month.

At each club meeting we have a drawing from the entire membership. If that member is present, they would win a $100 gift certificate from Sportsman's Warehouse. It is increased by $10 each month. Last month's winning loser was Ken and Lauri Tescher. July's prize will be $120.

Like most of you, I received a nice letter from our U. S. Senator John Barrasso regarding Senate bill 2766, called the "clean boating act of 2008". This bill was reported favorably by the Environment and Public Works Committee on which Sen. Barrasso serves. It now awaits consider-ation by the full senate. With all the letters from us and others, there is a good chance it will pass and save recreational boaters enormous headaches. Thanks for doing your part.

I would like to acknowledge the passing of long time NPWU member Brian Felstet. He was killed in a motorcycle accident in late May. We offer our condolences to his family and friends.

On the lighter side

Irish joke of the year

An Irishman walks into a bar in Dublin, orders three pints of Guinness and sits in the back of the room, drinking a sip out of each one in turn. When he finished all three, he comes back to the bar and orders three more. The bartender says to him, 'You know, a pint goes flat after I draw it; It would taste better if you bought one at a time.'

The Irishman replies, 'Well, you see, I have two brothers. One is in America, the other in Australia, and I'm here in Dublin. When we all left home, we promised that we'd drink this way to remember the days we all drank together.'

The bartender admits that this is a nice custom, and leaves it there. The Irishman becomes a regular in the bar and always drinks the same way: he orders three pints and drinks the three pints by taking drinks from each of them in turn.

One day, he comes in and orders two pints. All the other regulars' in the bar notice and fall silent.

When he comes back to the bar for the second round, the bartender says, 'I don't want to intrude on your grief, but I wanted to offer my condolences on your great loss.'

The Irishman looks confused for a moment, then the light dawns in his eye and he laughs.

'Oh, no,' he says, 'Everyone is fine. It's me......I've quit drinking!'
