UFT - February Meeting

Next meeting of United Fly Tyers (UFT) will be held this coming Thursday, February 6th. Doors open at 6:30pm, tying generally runs from 7-8pm (or so).

The featured speaker will be Alan Caolo. His topic: Sight Fishing for Stripers and rumor has it he might even have a few signed copies of his book on hand (and a pen for those who might already have bought it). Hunterís Angling will be the vendor for the evening, and Dan Trela will make his first appearance of 2003!

Meetings are held at the Knights of Columbus Hall, which is located behind the Burlington Mall. For more information, visit:
United Fly Tyers or contact me.

Hope to see you there.

John -

I just might have to fill in for you, if all goes well I will be able to attend Alan's presentation and say hi to the guys from Hunter's.

But your sweep technique must be super after all that cleanup of clippings you've done this winter

Thanks Jared!

Tickets ! Anybody selling Tickets???

What better take on a Thursday night than WCC vs. TCC Curling - How does one obtain admission; What is the appropriate spectator attire? Is this to be covered by any national or local sports media department? Film at 11???

I will have you know Dave, That WCC came away with the Trophy as we continued a two year sweep of the event.. WCC still holds the lead by about 200 stones since the beginning of the tournament in 1940's named after Don Ainger... An award in his name is also given to the top Harvard Goal tender in Hockey. You can attend providing you are properly attired and have trimmed your mustashe. Once seated you are served draft beer, mixed drinks or expresso... with cigars, which is accompied by much jovial banter among the participants. A well attended event of significant sporting acclaim. My delivery from the hack to the house was not want of skill I might add although I was only the lead.

I've been to The Country Club.

It was sunny, calm, and about 85 degrees, though.

The greens putted like they were a curling surface.......

Mark, I remember playing two weeks before the Open when we were all 4 and 5 putting... the fairways were like greens at other courses and I dropped several ball in both Cupit's and Varden's Bunker on the 17th just to do it. Play it each year a couple times. One of the great plaques in all of Golf is the one in the men's locker room which lists all the winners of all the USGA events held there since 1913 Ouimet victory.

Last time I did curling was in Austria - apres ski in 1985 (ish). The stones were those that looked like granite loo plungers rather than the granite 'cooking pot' type which they use in the winter olympics. Needless to say it turned into England versus the rest of the world but the match was never decided since the snowball fight which started in the third round had everyone retiring to the bar - whence we had already been warming up ahead of the match. Our Austrian referee attempted to bring order to the proceedings - his last plea - "OK NO more snowball fight!" BIG MISTAKE - my last memory was of his feet sticking out, the rest of his body buried after a sudden sense of international solidarity fell on the assembled gathering and we decided he should be buried in his native snow.

John, I'm sure that decorum precludes such oafish behavior at your club.

John, my favorite memory took place before I even swung a club.

Being met at the swinging, saloon style doors, and climbing the stairs to the visitors locker room was great. The only thing that could top it, having the gentleman leading the way calmly explain that I would have to turn off my mobile phone and leave it in the locker.

Getting paid on a sunny weekday afternoon never felt so good.

Shot 92, the same score I shot at St. Andrews, Myopia,............
Many things went awry that day but I didn't care. Those scores help bring up my cap, but, the best part is seeing the guys faces at Braintree Municipal when I turn those cards in at the same time. :hehe:

SNOBS !


Well, I'll have you know, my evening activities, which kept me from attending UFT, were, shall we say, "unique" as well. However, I cannot divulge said activities, as I would then be forced to decimate the population of informed individuals.

Jared - guess what - I hadda do the same damn thing Friday in the snowstorm !!!

And here I thought that Curling pins were something used to style hair. You just never know what you will learn on the internet.

I thought you fired me and took Fred A on - besides, he's a
little taller and can see your errant fade just a little longer before it enters the ROUGH (and beside that, you don't take club selection or 'rub o' th' green' advice willingly ) (And, I still think you can buy those imitation cloissonne pins downtown )

If there was ever any doubt about whether or not it's the off season, it just went out the window.
