Welcome to the new SWMTU blog! We are excited to offer this new communication medium for our membership. Did you know that our chapter has traditionally spent $2,500-$5,000 annually for newsletters? While I do not argue the validity and quality (Trout Unlimited National award winner) of our newsletter Trout Talk, I can argue that the money spent to create, publish, and mail Trout Talk could be better spent on our coldwater resources.
We do not currently plan to eliminate Trout Talk, just pair it back to a couple of issues per year. All the while keeping you up to date on-line with issues and events we are planning. Best of all there is an avenue for you to submit feedback strait away, and that is what I am most excited about.
We look forward to hearing your thoughts and ideas soon. Please visit often, get involved, let us know what content you would like to see and where we can improve. Most of all, please thank our Secretary and Webmaster, Dave DeJonge. Without Dave’s efforts none of this would be possible. Dave is a multiple term officer on our board, and extremely passionate about our resource. Thank you Dave.
JR Hartman, SWMTU Treasurer
