2014 Driftless Rendezvous is coming ! Save the date !
The 2014 Driftless Rendezvous will be
held September 12-14. Hiawatha Trout Unlimited (HTU) will be holding
the event at the Whitewater State Park (WWSP) Group Center Cabins
near St. Charles, MN.
Many of the programs from previous
years, food, and fun will again be on hand. We will have casting
instruction assisted by International Federation of Fly Fishers
(IFFF) certified casting instructors, fly tying classes, open fly
tying, opportunities to go out fly fishing with experienced fly
fishermen/women, geology hikes led by Jeff Broberg, nature hikes led
by a Department of Natural Resources (DNR) naturalist, macro
invertebrate instruction, classes about a variety of equipment, a
kids program (tentative), and if an agreement on what to show can be
reached, a movie night on Friday including popcorn and beverages.
We will be having another fly casting
contest with prizes again this year. Everyone gets a chance. You
will be entered for a prize just for trying !
The WWSP Group Center Cabins offer a
large dining hall, clean comfortable cabins, a shower/bathroom house
for men and women, group fire pit, and breathtaking grounds with the
Whitewater River flowing thirty feet from the dining hall doors. We
are looking to have another hog roast on Saturday night. There will
be an opportunity to attend Saturday only if you can’t make the
whole weekend. You can also come just for the Saturday night hog
roast. Prices and classes are still being developed so stay tuned to
www.hiawathatu.org for more
details as they become available.
