A Line from your President…

Ten RVs went to the recent Lake Cuyamaca/Pinezanita campout. During the week we had five more club members, and Joanne Jauret’s daughter Amy, visit the outing. Good company made for a great time, but the fishing was gone with the wind. Strong Santa Ana winds blew at the lake every day we were there. Despite terrible conditions, club members were able to bring in fifteen fish. For the second outing in a row, trout master Dave Gehrke won the biggest fish award with a 1.5 lb. trout.

Betty Allen, with moral support from Larry, did a great job of organizing the event. This outing we tried something new, Dave Martinez and Larry Allen both brought propane fire pits. This allowed us to have fires during the red flag warning period and provided a great smokeless campfire experience. All of us who attended owe Dave and Larry a big thank you.

The last Surf Fishing Challenge for 2018 was held on October 15th at South San Elijo State Beach. Don Continelli repeated last year’s performance by winning this year’s Surf Fishing Tournament. Watch for more information about this event later in the newsletter.

The Santee Lakes Recreation Preserve is holding an opening day trout derby on November 3rd and 4th, just before the club campout from November 4th - 9th. Last year’s outing resulted in some of the club’s best fresh water fishing of the year. Several trout over 5 lbs. were taken. We expect this year’s fishing to be just as good. This is our closest camping venue and has some of the most accessible fishing of any location we go. If you are interested in joining us for the day, a good day to visit will be Wednesday. You can join us for YOYO night when most of us will be going to dinner at Fillipi’s Pizza in Santee.

Jimmy Eghaneyan and Fariba Talebi will be sharing their beautiful home with us again this year for the Fall Feast, which will be held Tuesday, November 13. Besides great food, this is the event that we have our annual White Elephant Auction. Search your garages and cupboards for any gently used items that you would like to donate. Please bring these in to the next meeting and give them to Marge Lovelady. For those signed up to bring food, plan to feed 20. See or call Colleen Wilson for more information.

The annual bus trip to the Viejas Casino, November 30th, still has seats available. Call Barbara Gattuso if you would like to sign up.

Also beginning November 30th will be the Annual Dixon Lake Trout Derby. This threeday event will include the Kiddy Ponds on Saturday and Sunday. Please see Hank Skaja to help with this event.

For a great time, the annual Awards Banquet is December 5th at the Rancho Bernardo Country Club. For questions contact Betty Allen.
