The CVTU family picnic will be held at the Carlisle Fish and Game Club property (1420 West Trindle Road, Carlisle) on Saturday, August 20st beginning at 3:00 PM. Dinner will be served in the air-conditioned barn from 5:00 PM until 6:30 PM. You will enjoy dry rubbed pulled pork, smoked chicken thighs with sauces, pork and beans, rustic chopped slaw, tossed salad and rolls along with cold beverages and desserts from our caterer, Smoked Trout. Kids 12 and under eat for free – it’s $20 for all others…the same price as it’s been for the past 20+ years!

During the picnic, CVTU will hold a bucket raffle for various items; fishing and non fishing items are welcomed!!! Here’s a chance to let someone else win your favorite fishing gear, kitchen appliances and gadgets, and other items of great (or not so ) sentimental value!!! We ask that you bring a bucket raffle item and cash for raffle tickets to help the cause.

Join us for the casting contests (accuracy and distance). Neil Sunday will officiate the contest and prizes donated by TCO and Precision Fly Shops will be awarded to the successful contestants!!!

Bring rods and bait for the kids so they can fish in the pond (barbless hooks – C & R please). Won’t it be good again to see old friends and to make some new ones? This will be held rain or shine as everyone can be seated in the air-conditioned barn.
