The SJRVFF Opening Day Outing will take place on Saturday, April 28th at Bobbie Labar’s farm on the Dowagiac Creek. This is an all day event- there will be coffee and donuts for the early birds at 8:00 am and lunch will be served at noon. Lunch will be provided by the club along with water and soda. The club will not be providing beer or wine…you’ll have to bring your own. The Opening Day Raffle for the Winston BIIIx 8′ 4wt and Hardy Angel Reel w/SA line will be drawn following lunch (1:00 -1:30). See Billy Vail at the Club Auction or at the Openin Day Outing prior to drawing to purchase tickets.
