What a beautiful month of the year. Well, you could say that about almost any month in Southern California.
First of all, I would like to thank Ron Parker not only for being the acting president in my absence, but for everything he does for our community. Many things that he does go unnoticed or are done behind the scenes. THANK YOU RON PARKER !!! April has been a very busy month for the Senior Anglers of Escondido, (SAE). Bob Taylor handled the fishing challenge, Anitra and Dave Gehrke / Priscilla and Bob Milton organized the Lake Lopez outing and the saltwater trip, leaving from Morro Bay, and Tony Smock spent many long hours related to the Kiwanis fishing derby. These events would not have been possible without the support of over 50 club members. A special thanks to all of you. In the words of one of our club members " volunteering is easy and fun". More details to follow later in this letter. Feel free to thank these people, when you get a chance.
Don't forget May 9, for surf fishing with Bill Varney. We are honored to have Bill give 'hands on' surf fishing instructions.
Our next meeting will be May 13 and the next outing May 30 to June 4 at Lake Cuyamaca.
The SAE board received news that the 'students with special needs' fishing trip to Lake Dixon scheduled for Monday, April 25 has been canceled. We are working with the school officials responsible for this decision.
With regrets, I have been informed that Ron Casapulla has decided to resign from the SAE board. He will remain active in the club, helping out in various ways and at club functions. Ron has spent 4 years on the board and I hate to see him leave. Ken Harrison will be assuming the duties of Public Relations Director.
