View Full Version : TroutFest 2010 Volunteers Needed

05-20-2009, 07:04 PM
Hello, thanks to all of you that attended and also made TroutFest a sucess. I also what to take this time to ask for more volunteers for TroutFest 2010.

We can always use more help. We need to have more people to work on setup, take down, TU Store, Auction, cooking, serving.

We have an awesone core group, but unless we expand the number of volunteers, we will burnout. I calcualted my hours just for the actual fest and I am right at 40 hours in 3 days. I think most people but in more hours than me. I had no time allowed to enjoy the Fest except for talking to Bob/Lefty/Joe while they were in the tent signing books and hats.

You do not have to belong to LRCTU to be a volunteer, many of the people helping were not LRCTU members.
Watch the LRCTU or TroutFest website for info on volunteering in 2010.

Thank you all,

Byron Begley

Good post Mike and thanks for your hard work,

Based on what I have heard and seen next year will be huge. The present steering committee will meet in a few weeks to access what we learned this year and make Troutfest better in the future. More people will be added to the steering committee. Our preliminary financial results indicate that we probably doubled last year's funding for the Park Fisheries Department. I think we raised about $35,000 but we don't have all the numbers. More important than that, a lot more people were able to enjoy the event.

Please put me down as a volunteer for 2010.

I'll do the same job, if you'll do the same job, Byron.

Hi Gary,

It would be my pleasure to do the same job if you folks will have me back. I enjoyed it very much and it was not a big task for me because you guys were a great team to work with and the work was spread out between many volunteers. It would be an honor to work with you again. I don't remember ever working on a project with a greater bunch of people. I do think we should add about three more people to the steering committee. I'll tell you about that later.

Thank you for your hard work and intelligent input.
