President's Message

If you didn’t make it to the All Day meeting, you missed a great event.  Gary entertained and informed, covering a multitude of topics. We had over 90 members in attendance. He presented 4 of his programs with one being better than the next. I could not resist picking up 3 more of his books and I am slowly working my way through them as I write this. Getting a chance to visit with him over pizza was a treat, too. My hat is off to Bob Z for planning a great day and thanks to Marlan for the use of the clubhouse. And also thanks to the many who helped make it a successful event by manning the raffle, helping to sell Gary’s books, pick up coffee and donuts, greeting people as they arrived, setting up the History Board, working the a/v equipment, and all the other things that made it a success.

This is a busy time for OFF, with classes continuing, water quality monitoring starting for the year, and of course, outings and fishing. Be sure to check the calendar to keep up to date on what is happening. With the All Day being in March, we do not have a General Meeting of the 4th Thursday this month.

See you on the river.

FFF -- SOC Awards for 2013

The annual awards were presented to the Southern Council on Saturday, October 5, 2013 in Mountain Home, Arkansas.

Bob Temper (Ozark Fly Fishers) and Steve Antonic (Ozark Fly Fishers) were honored recipients of the Southern Council Gray Ghost for their past years of service to the council. It is with distinction that their service over these multitude of years was the fitting reason for this honor. They have given time, talent and inspiration to the benefit of Southern Council members and organization.

Malcolm Royse (Ozark Fly Fishers) was awarded the Tall Tale Teller Award - This is presented annually to that individual who is the best, most vocal tall-tale teller in the Southern Council. This is the second year in a row that this award went to an OFF Tall Tale Teller. Last year Mike Swerderska had the dubious honor.
