OQUOSSOC – Despite freezing rain, spitting snow and a change of meeting date, 40 members and friends of Rangeley Region Guides’ and Sportsmen’s Association attended the January meeting.

Those attending had the opportunity to sample chef Dave Borman’s clam chowder and/or chili and hear a recap of last summer’s Alaskan adventure share by campers Victor Borko, Jan and Bill Eddy and Joan and Chet Massey.

Rusty Harvey led the business session. He noted that club members will staff their booth at the Wilton Sportsmen’s Show May 24 to 26 as well as the Augusta Sportsmen’s Show at the Civic Center March 31 to April 2.

Visitors to both shows will be able to learn more about the Rangeley area and purchase tickets to this year’s ice-out contest. This is a new fundraiser for the club. Tickets predicting date and time are available until April 15 in many downtown locations or at monthly club meetings. Harvey also thanked Mary Ellen Maroney for organizing team leaders for the coming year.

He announced that the club has been awarded a $2,650 grant from Fly Fishing in Maine for work relating to the club’s youth programs.

The next meeting will begin with a potluck meal at 5:30 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 16, at the clubhouse on Old Skiway Road. All are welcome. Those attending are asked to bring an entree, salad or dessert to share.
