Hello Muskie Hunters!
With the holiday season upon us you may be stressed out trying to determine 'what is
the perfect gift for family and friends?' I have a couple of suggestions. I have given
out a number of gift memberships over the years, and intend to do so again this year.
Not all of the recipients stay in the Club, but some do, and all of them seem to appreciate
the calendars, magazines, and this newsletter. I personally am attempting to groom my year
old grandson to be my fishing partner in about 12 years by continually subjecting him to
Muskie culture. Another gift idea is our Club's Annual Raffle. The tickets are inexpensive
and make perfect stocking stuffers, thereby avoiding frivolous items such as jewelry, and clothing.
If you don't manage to find the perfect item in time, you can always count on the Chicago
Muskie Show in January to make up for your thoughtlessness.
In all seriousness, this has been a great year for our Club. I want to thank all of the members
who have pitched in at our meetings, our outings, and supported all of our fundraising efforts.
Thanks to you we are growing, and fulfilling our goals. I hope to see you at our next meeting!
