Zoom Happenings

 

A screen shot of the meeting


Yesterday evening the Southern Oregon Fly Tyers had a Zoom meeting. It was a new experience for some of us but actually moved along quite smoothly.  This style meeting should serve us quite well through this pandemic.  If you weren't there we want to help you get there for the next one.  A smart phone, tablet, or computer that is wifi connected will get the job done for you.  

During this pandemic our communication with each other is more important than ever.  We have initiated a membership list and requested updated information from everyone.  Many have responded but some have yet to respond.  Reach out to your friends to make sure we are getting messages to them.  

We have also revived the Vertical Response bulk email.  This is our way to make sure we are reaching as many as possible.  This means that sometimes you may get two messages.  If you don't want the VR emails just click the unsubscribe at the bottom of the page.

Once installed you will need to log into our meeting with the following information:

Once in the meeting I have set up for everyone to have video access so I can see all of you wonderful faces.  

 

If you do not gave video access you should also be able to phone in and at least hear what we will try to do going forward.

 

I know this is new to many of us [including me!} but if will help keep us together and move our learning of new methods and techniques.  

 

Please try to log in early 20 minutes or so before the meeting, today, October 13, 2020 at 6:00pm, so we can clear up any login issues.  Also you can call me at 541 973 3508 and I can help you get you logged in.

Important Changes

 

Southern Oregon Fly Tyers

UPDATE - October 2020

 

Hello to all our members who have been dealing with the COVID reality, the fires and our lack of water. With COVID levels up in our region we all need to be diligent, remain safe, wash hands, social distance and wear our masks.  

 

Our next meeting is on October 13, and we will conduct one utilizing Zoom from my FlyTying Den in Medford. We will send out instructions on how to set up to join this meeting in a subsequent blog posting. Check the blog at soflytyers.blogspot.com.

 

For now, I really need to get together a listing of emails and phone numbers, designate as home or cell, [Instagram accounts if you have one] for everyone.  Please send this into Tom Collett at ThomasCollett@yahoo.com.  Please also call your friends that have come to our past meetings to ensure that they know what we are trying to do and please send their information in along with yours. We want to include everyone.

 

I hope that all of you have remained healthy and your families continue to be safe.

 

Kindest regards,

 

Dave

Frank and Jeanne Moore

 The recent Archie Creek Fire up in the North Umpqua Watershed forced Frank and Jeanne Moore to evacuate.  The fire also destroyed their cabin.  What a disaster for anyone let alone for people in their 90s.

A kind friend started a GoFundMe page for them.  If you want to know more about Frank and his legacy just go to YouTube and search the name Frank Moore.  Here is the link.
