Mystery solved

 Hey folks,

The cigar box mystery is solved, case closed.  The box was inadvertently placed in the clear plastic bin that Dave McCants uses.

Post meeting notes for September

 Hey everyone thanks for attending our September meeting.   Kevin Daniels, our guest tyer did a wonderful job as usual.  I especially enjoy the fly tyer's tricks, as well as, the group participation.  

We are still looking for someone to handle our raffle.  Please contact Dave McCants if you are interested.

Speaking of the raffle, someone mistakenly took one of the raffle winnings containing a cigar box with flies and perhaps some materials.  Please contact Dave McCants so we can get the raffle winnings to the rightful owner.   (Dave McCants) at davetyer177@gmail.com

Thanks again for your participation in the Southern Oregon Fly Tyers.
