The meeting was called to order. The minutes from the previous meeting were read and approved. The financial report was read. The
chapter has a balance of $5,703.25. The report was approved. Denis Mora gave a report on the Trout in the Classroom. Denis said that
Crossing Elementary School stocked their fish on April 26th. Mostly they were about 2 inches long. May 8th was scheduled for the Swenson
High School trout stocking. Rich Terry said more members should go out for the stockings next year. It's a very enjoyable experience.
The April 28th Lorimar Park Rotary kids fishing event did not draw a lot of kids. The kids that did show up had a good time. They even
got to help put trout in the stream at a 1 p.m. stocking.
Rich announced for the June 2nd Kliendiest Pond event that our chapter members who are going to help out should come at 8:30 a.m. to
assist in sign up, etc. Extra hands always help.
Dick McKenna will talk to the members going to Penns Creek for the May 17th-20th outing at the break. He'll tell them what to bring, etc.
The business meeting ended. After a short break, Tracey Stroup was introduced. She and her husband, Eric are proprietors of Stroup Fly
Fishing in Spruce Creek, Pa. She is also a physical therapist. She had good advice on casting stance, grip, balance and posture while
fishing. One interesting comment was about the importance of staying hydrated. She said you should drink 1/2 your weight in ounces each day
for two weeks before going on an extended fishing trip.
