The Al Hazzard TU chapter's banquet is an annual rite of spring for many fly anglers in the Southern Tier of New York. The banquet, the 41st for the chapter, is set for Saturday, March 23. The event is the chapter's annual fundraiser and therefore very important in terms of funding the many good things TU does for cold water conservation and fly fishing.
Here are the particulars for this local event:
- What: The Al Hazzard Chapter of Trout Unlimited 41st Annual Banquet
- Where: The Kalurah Temple, 625 Dickinson Street, Endicott, NY
- When: Saturday, March 23. Cash bar at 4:30 p.m. Dinner starts at 6 p.m.
- Why: The Al Hazzard Chapter of Trout Unlimited relies on funds from the banquet to pay for cold water conservation projects, conservation education, and fly fishing education. This event raises money through ticket sales and raffle sales.
Why attend? Besides making a contribution to coldwater conservation, this event fosters a sense of community amongst anglers. There's always a great speaker, fun in bidding on various fly fishing items, great food, a cash bar, and door prizes, to boot. Anyone who does not have tickets but would like to attend should contact Nick DiNunzio at 607-754-7784.
