Flycasters, Inc. of San Jose would like to invite all NCCFF club members, family & friends to a party. The Flycasters Conservation Committee is hosting our annual dinner and fundraiser with all proceeds from the raffle and silent auction to go to the Marty Seldon Memorial Conservation Fund for specific projects in the south SF bay for recovery of our coastal Steelhead.
Our committee has really been hard at work developing a great array of silent auction and bucket raffle prizes. We already have over 80 prizes with a total estimated retail value of over $20,000 and more donations are continuing to come in. We’ve got restaurants gift certificates, fly fishing gear, hotel and resort stays, and 2 for 1 guided fly fishing trips, art and fly plates, wine and wine tastings, and a lot more. See the List of Donors on the web site: www.flycasters.org then select the “Partners” tab then “Fundraiser donors list.”
Our quest speaker is Rod Diridon, Santa Clara County Supervisor for 20 years, world renowned expert on high speed rail, a strong advocate for conservation and life time member of Flycasters. Rod’s presentation will feature a short presentation on high speed rail along with his conservation work and his fly fishing experiences.
The gala event will begin at 6:00 PM on Saturday, February 9, 2013 at the Cupertino Quinlan Community Center, 10185 N. Stelling Ave., Cupertino, CA. There will be beer and wine, appetizers and an informal buffet dinner in a great modern facility all for only $40/person. If you would like to stay overnight, lodging is available at discounted prices at the Marriott Courtyard Cupertino Hotel.
