Northwest Fly Tyer & Fly Fishing Expo is scheduled for March 10 & 11, 2023

I was very excited to start ramping up planning and sending out invitations for 2022 Expo. To
plan and execute a successful, safe expo requires a minimum of 6 months. Three weeks ago,
everything changed and quickly became a COVID19 variant health risk to everyone. The Oregon
Council Board of Directors reached a unanimous decision to postpone the NW Fly Tyer & Fly
Fishing Expo until March 10 & 11, 2023.

Our Council is financially stable and can carry the Expo delay into the future. Most of council
activities will be using the Zoom platform.

Our BOD (see list on this web site) has grown again to 25 dedicated volunteers.
The Oregon Council 2021 Annual Meeting and Election of BOD members and Officers for 2022
will be held Saturday December 11, 2021. 10AM. Notification, agenda plus zoom link will be
sent to all Oregon FFI members prior to the meeting.

Thank you all for continuing your ongoing support for FFI and the Oregon Council. Feel free to
contact me at any time if you would like more information or would like to volunteer to help out.
We still have plenty to do.
