41st Annual Dinner Set for September 24, 2021

Time: 5:30 pm -8:30 pm

Date: Friday, September 24, 2021

Place: The Pleasantville Country Club

         110 Nannahagen Road

         Pleasantville, NY

It has been a long time coming but the 41st Annual Dinner has been rescheduled for September 24, 2021. Tickets are $75 per person. Purchase tickets by Saturday, July 17 to be enrolled automatically in the Early Bird Raffle. CLICK HERE to purchase tickets.


The dinner in the only thing that pays for Chapter activities. Proceeds support Trout in the Classroom (TIC). Everyone expects schools to fully reopen in September so TIC needs to keep pace. The dinner also pays for our monthly speakers and meeting venue. Even Zoom presentations are expensive. And every year the Chapter contributes to Veterans activities, too.


We've made some changes due to Covid-19 concerns. Of course we'll have special raffles and bucket raffles for some great equipment. But we're going to skip the auctions and awards this year. Instead of a sit down dinner, we're going to serve buffet style. That allows more social distancing. We're also going to move the tables out to the terrace and eat under the canopy to take advantage of a nice September evening.


Can't make the dinner? Sign up for the pre-dinner raffle for a Sage 10ft 6in, 3wt, 4-piece Sense series rod with Redington Tilt reel and Cortland 2wt-5wt Euro Line. This raffle is limited to 75 tickets @ $30.00 each. You don't have to be present to win. CLICK HERE to purchase raffle tickets.


Have questions? Contact our dinner chair, Herb Brooks. We look forward to seeing you at the dinner!

May 2, 2021 - Amawalk Tree Planting with NYC TU


Time: 10:00

Date: May 2, 2021

Place: Wood Street Bridge


Below is a note from Conservation Director Roger Baumann . . .


Fourth annual Amawalk Tree Planting! On Sunday May 2, 2021, many from ours and the NYC chapter spent a couple of hours planting trees along the Amawalk outlet river in the town of Somers NY. This was by far our biggest turn out so far and we wanted to thank everyone for coming out to help plant trees for the good of the planet, river, and fish. 


Thanks again, and look forward to seeing you all next year!
