Judge John W. Tobin Award Presented to Dick Barnett in 2016 (Posted: August 31, 2016)
Each year a Chapter member is recognized for his or her dedication to the objectives of the Izaak Walton League and the operation of one of its local chapters. Who are the dedicated Ike’s who perform Chapter services for the community, show up for all meetings, sign up first for work crews, serve on committees, help maintain chapter grounds, and make the organization run more smoothly? They are our chapter's best members and they deserve a hearty "Thank-You.” Since 1976 this award, established by past IWLA President Judge John W. Tobin, has been a great way to thank Ike’s for their hard work. This year's Judge Tobin's award was presented to Dick Barnett. Dick is an active leader and member and is awarded for his many services to the Fred Rapp Chapter and for his untiring effort to serve our region's wounded veteran's through a theaeraputic program of fly fishing in a program known as Project Healing Waters Fly Fishing (PHWFF).. Congratulations to Dick Barnett for this well-deserved award.
Here is a photo of Dick pursuing his avocation in Montana a few weeks ago in mid-August 2016.
That is a nice fish, Dick!

If You Have a Problem with Your New Gate Access Card (posted December 27, 2015)Although the card issuing process has gone remarkably well, there have been a few "glitches." Some of you have had to sit for a photo when you should have had one on file because some of the photos were lost or corrupted. Several people have tried their new access card and it would not command the gate open. We have fixed any that were brought to our attention today and the cards now work. Today we also had a minor problem with writing changes to the common database and, in fixing the problem, we think we might have lost the registration information for as many as a score of members that were printed and issued cards on Wednesday evening. In other words for a few who paid on Wednesday evening, December 23 and/or sat for a photo, your card might not work. If you find your access card does not work for any reason or if you picked it up on December 23rd and would like for us to check to see if we have your card properly enabled, either send an email to email@example.com or to Jim Lloyd at firstname.lastname@example.org. Look at the back of your card and include in your email the last 3 or4 digits of the number in the upper right corner of the card and ask us to check your registration. We will check your database entry to make sure you are properly registered so that the gate will open.
Emergency Procedures Corrected (posted December 22, 2015)A few minor, but important corrections have been made to the range rules regarding emergency procedures, One change relates to the location of our Chapterwhich has been incorrectly identified as between Brock Road, on one end, and Old Plank Road on the other. Actually, the location is between Brock Road and Orange Plank Road. In addition, there are now 2 telephones for emergency purposes on the property. The one that has been there the longest is adhacent to the door to the Chapterhouse. A few months ago, another phone was installed on the Maintenance shed adjacent to the main parking lot. New instructions have been placed inside the cover of each of the telephones. These changes can also be found in a new issue of the Range Rules and on a single page information sheet that can be cut, folded and placed with your membership card for easy reference.
