Get ready for an online raffle!

by By prize guy, Jeff Goyert

It’s been a while since we could have one of our good old fashion buy a raffle ticket, win a new fly rod events at on of  our monthly meeting. This isn’t for a lack of goodies to raffle off. My back storage room is loaded great fly fishing gear, quite the opposite of the toilet paper aisle at Safeway.

So, what I am going to try to do is do an online/meeting raffle. Figure for the September Meeting I will lay out the loot with instructions as to how to purchase tickets. Somehow online with a credit card though our newsletter/website? I don’t know but we will try to figure it out.

In the mean time, enjoy your 4th of July,  see you at the August BBQ.

I still haven’t figured out how to do an actual zoom meeting raffle collecting money and selling tickets, I can barely boot up my computer much less write binary quantum digital stuff. Having said that, during last month’s zoom meeting we were able to pull off a pretty good door prize give away. So we will do it again!

What we have this month is a really handy gizmo called a Stanley Fat Max jump starter and compressor.  Most of us in lock down have not been using our vehicles very often resulting in dead batteries and low tire pressure. To the rescue comes this jumper for you battery and an electric pump for your tires. This also includes USB ports to charge your phone and attached trouble light. Perfect for the garage or stashed away in the truck on your next fishing adventure.

Remember, every body gets a free ticket.  Winner must be present at the June Fly club zoom meeting.

This package is perfect for the big fish and the big winds that Pyramid is known for. It also is a nice rig for the surf.

In case we have forgotten, it is still on the cool side of spring so it might be nice to have a little bit of heat on these cold mornings when we are outdoors.

It will heat up to 95 square feet and will run for over 5 hours on single tank of gas. Also great for the bath at home when the power is out.
