For many years, usually around Memorial Day, New Mexico Trout provided lunch from Rudy’s barbeque as part of one of our volunteer events. That was a thank you celebration for our members that allowed us to get together in a beautiful place and hang out with friends and catch up with the latest fishing stories. This hasn’t happened over the past several years for a variety of reasons. There was COVID, then our SFNF partners left and weren’t replaced and a lack of suitable projects for such an event didn’t help. Most recently we have had forest closures because of wildfires and now the welcomed rains have created flooding and generally made things muddy.
Let’s do it!
What: Rudy’s BBQ (brisket, sausage, turkey) with side of cole slaw, potato salad, and beans. We will provide iced tea, lemonade, and water. Other drinks will be BYOB. Hang out in a nice setting. Practice your bow and arrow casts on the Guadalupe. Hike upstream on the east side of the Guadalupe that sees almost no human traffic. Games to include horseshoes and an accuracy fly casting game! Prizes to be given!
When: Saturday October 8, 2022
11:00 AM to 4:00 PM
BBQ Lunch at 12:00
Who: Members and their family only.
