• Crappie.com presentation

    I belong to a local chapter of the National Wildlife federation. We meet monthly and try to have speakers on topics such as wildlife conservation, nature information or similar topics. I was asked if I could do a program on fishing so I decided to do a slide show on what Crappie.com was all about. Ed(Slab) was kind enough to send me some CDC stickers and some jigs I could use as door prizes. Our meeting had about 45 members present and I got a lot of questions about the forum and the different things that the membership offers, such as club outings, fishing and boating help and just about any other topic you could think of, including great recipes.

    I showed some of the pictures from the forum and a shot of kids winning prizes at our Fallfest that was held last weekend.
    We bring kids from the local shelters out to our facility for a day of fishing and fun and we cook hamburgers and hot dogs for them. We also bring our Wounded Warriors from the local VA out for a similar outing.
    I told them about the CDC member who heard we needed rods and reels for these functions and brought me 40 combos they had for a program in their church which had been discontinued and the dozens of rods and reels that other members brought to me.
    Everyone seemed interested in the topic and several asked for the CDC sticker so maybe we will pick up a few new members for our website.
    Thanks again to Ed for the items he provided.

      Very nice Ray, you and your group are doing the community a great service, along with bringing a little happiness into the lives of many who may need it. I feel certain a few new CDC
      members will be in the making.

      Tim, did you recognize the picture of the crappie? It was from one of your post.

      Believe it or not Ray, I did recognize the picture. On a unrelated topic, I had a chance to tie or better my best golf round today. I'm 3 over through 16 holes, finish double bogey, bogey for a 78. My best round of the year, but a disappointing finish.

      Thanks for all the kind comments. Here is a couple of pictures from one of the DNR fishing clinics we teach to introduce kids to fishing and a picture of a kid with his first ever fish. I love the expression as if to say "Wow this stuff actually works!"

      The clinics are free but DNR requires that a parent or guardian be with each child with the hope they will then be comfortable taking their kids fishing, And yes we have many adults in these classes who have never held a fishing rod. They get as excited as the kids and we let them participate and fish along side their child if they wish.
