ANNOUNCEMENTS

Greetings!

Many CFBCC members have reserved your clubhouse for occasions with family, friends or groups.
 
Grandchildren’s birthday parties, family gatherings, Sunday School class or church group, quilting circle, men’s groups, fun day with friends, movie night...these are just a few of the possibilities for using your clubhouse.
 
If you haven’t yet had occasion to take advantage of this benefit from your membership, here is the easy process to reserve the clubhouse.
 
  1. Got to CFBCC website at cfbcc.org
  2. Click on Member Info
  3. Select Calendar & Clubhouse Reservations. Enter the member password. (If you don’t remember the member password, reply to this email and we can provide you the password.)
  4. You will be taken to a calendar. Check your date to see if the club has been reserved.
  5. Click request for clubhouse reservation with credit card. The only charge is $26 per day for cleaning the clubhouse.
  6. Then click on the date you want to reserve. If the clubhouse is free that day, enter your name. You will receive confirmation of your reservation by email.

WELCOME NEW MEMBERS!
Welcome to new CFBCC Members George and Patty Wright!

THANK YOU CFBCC! VOLUNTEERS!
A big thank you to G eorge and his George Wright Construction team for removing and disposing of the leaves from the beach! Your contribution is greatly appreciated.

Thank you Sarah Poole for taking down the Holiday Decorations in the Clubhouse. We know taking down Christmas decorations in February is a tedious task. Your dedication to CFBCC in all your volunteering is much appreciated


CFBCC VOLUNTEERS NEEDED IN 2019
CFBCC is run by member volunteers at all levels. We encourage you to sign up to host a CFBCC potluck, work day or meeting; work at a CFBCC Work Day or express your interest in serving on a CFBCC Committee or on the CFBCC Board. Click here to sign up! (use CFBCC Password).


HOUSEKEEPING
 As the weather warms in the coming months, many of us will begin using our beautiful water front. We can keep CFBCC beautiful by all of us packing out anything we pack in, picking-up and throwing away trash, including cigarette butts, and putting away toys and chairs when we finished at the beach. Thank you for your help.

FINALLY, CFBCC FACEBOOK PHOTO-POSTING PROBLEM SOLVED!

Last year, after learning there was a Facebook page called Chickamauga Fly & Bait Casting Club that did not originate from our club, we “claimed” this page so that it could be administered by the club. We intended this “claimed” page to be a place members could post photos of their activities and experiences of CFBCC. However, the type of page this “claimed” page turned out to be was one that did not allow photos to be posted on it by members. 

We have worked for several months to solve this problem and now have a solution. If you go to Chickamauga Fly & Bait Casting Club Facebook page now, on the right hand side you will see a button for a Group page called Chickamauga Fly & Bait Casting Club Community. If you click on that button and indicate you want to be a member of this Group, you will become a member of the Group and can post pictures as much and as often as you wish.

We invite everyone who enjoys Facebook to join the new Chickamauga Fly & Bait Casting Club Community Group. Let us know if you have any further problems.

MEET YOUR BOARD
Featured Member: ELIZABETH NEELD

Teacher, Scholar, Author, Photographer and now,
Communicator:

In 1966, Brainerd High School senior named Joe Huber came under the tutelage of a dynamic, young English teacher named
Elizabeth Wooten. With almost scary passion, she introduced him to the great works of literature and writing. In so doing, she propelled him down a path to becoming a soldier and chemical engineer who loved to write. This was an amazing feat by any measure, since he was better at balancing chemical equations than diagramming sentences. But more importantly, who could know that their friendship would endure for a lifetime? Read More
KOENINGER POSSUM TALE
by Donna Koeninger

Wow! Where do I begin? We were blessed in 1973 to acquire the little red cabin my great Uncle Robert Mabry built in 1949 which happens to be the year I was born. I remember the day my Aunt Lucile called in April of 1973 asking if we wanted to buy the cabin. My husband Frank was in another room but could hear me on the phone. I said “Aunt Lucile, we just bought this house in East Brainerd. I don’t see how we can afford to buy the lake cabin. How much do you want for it?” She said $6,000. I said rather loudly “$6,000 is a lot of money”! From the next room came this booming voice “we’ll take it”!  Read the rest of the tale

NATURE
RIPRAP: Nature to the Rescue

Wikipedia tells us that riprap is also known as rip rap, rip-rap, shot rock, rock armor or rubble. That list gives us plenty of names to call this fix for a crumbling shore line: loose stone used to prevent or repair erosion of a shore line. Riprap is an eco-friendly solution using a product of nature in the fight against erosion.
TENNESSEE ENVIRONMENTAL COUNCIL

It's a Tennessee exTREEvaganza ! Trees for all of Tennessee NOW through MARCH 10, while supplies last (available to neighboring states as well).

We offer as many native trees as you can plant on your property during 250K Tree Day (pick up your trees on March 22 or 23, plant on March 23). Share this post with your friends!


If you have already ordered trees, take a moment to order a few more or invite your friends to order some. If you don't have room to plant, you may sponsor trees for others. This is the largest community-tree-planting event in America -- a non-profit effort to improve our environment and communities.
