Trip Participation and Refund Policy

With an expanded list of paid trips during 2022, we want to take this opportunity to reacquaint chapter members with our participation and refund policy.

 

Paid trips are open to Croton Watershed Chapter Trout Unlimited (CWCTU) members and their immediate family members. From time to time the trip coordinator may allow other TU members to enroll after our members have first had an opportunity to sign up. Trip participation is on a first paid basis.

 

Participants who cancel at least 30-days in advance of a trip will receive a full refund. The Chapter will also issue a full refund if the participant cancels less than 30-days in advance and finds a suitable replacement. Although the trip coordinator will provide assistance in finding a suitable replacement, final responsibility for finding a replacement is the participant's. Participants cannot cancel less than 30-days in advance of a trip and apply their payment as a credit against a future trip.

 

Serviceable Equipment Needed for Vets

 

A letter from Harry Kerrigan, our board member for Veterans Affairs . . .

 

For the past 12 years I've been volunteering with Project Healing Waters Fly Fishing (PHWFF), a national organization for disabled active military service personnel. Since its founding in 2005 PHW has become recognized as an innovative leader and model in the field of therapeutic outdoor recreation for the disabled.

 

As we approach the holiday season I want to ask for your help. Project Healing Waters can't work without a reliable source of good, serviceable equipment for our Vets including rods, reels, waders and boots. Those of you who attend our monthly meetings know that every month I ask that you donate your old or used fly fishing equipment. Instead of just throwing out your old equipment or stuffing it in a corner of your garage hoping it'll disappear please consider a donation. Our disabled Vets don't care if the equipment they use is new or used. 

 

I can't thank those of you who have donated equipment in the past enough. Your used equipment has been distributed among the Vets and they are very, very appreciative. Please don't hesitate to contact me with any questions or donations. The best way to reach me is through my email, tuharry@optimum.net .
