  1. FOAM is really commendable in keeping the fishing hobby/sport alive and interesting every year. I checked the Agenda and the raffle is really enticing! More power!

  2. I wish I could make the meeting. I really like to see people. Hopefully it will bring some good news on some of the issues before the state at this time.
