JANUARY 21, 2019 – Its the dead of Winter and of course UNYKA is not holding any meetings until late March because of the weather up here in the cold North Country and Upstate NY. However! We are planning for the rest of 2019 with several ideas being seriously bandied about.
Believe it or not, we are actually talking about an online meeting using some sort of conferencing software – Skype, etc. The idea is to talk about our plans and try to come up with a great first 2019 meeting. Plans are still to meet regularly in Utica, NY at the Casa Too Mucha restaurant. Len & Mary are also planning another ‘Killie BBQ” at their farm for sometime in the Spring or Summer. Last year we were able to a bit of sampling of the fish nearby and came up with a number of interesting species ranging from Darters to Dace. No killies that time.
Now for the BIG NEWS!
While we are not going to go back to the original format for NEW (Northeast Weekend), we are discussing a social get together and auction sometime in the second half of 2019. Essentially our plan is for a Saturday evening with pizza (or something) and beer and the an auction on Sunday. Currently we have no plans for speakers or anything of that nature. Its meant more to be a time of socializing with friends from around the North East.
