April 7, 2012 – Rapidan Chapter Kid ‘s Day/Heritage Day at Grave’s Mountain Lodge

April 7, 2012

Our Kid’s Day/Heritage Day will begin at 9:00am and run until 4:00pm’ish on Saturday, April 7th, where we join up with Graves Mountain Lodge and the Virgina Department of Game and Inland Fisheries -VDGIF, along with other supporting TU Chapters, for a day along the section of Rose River at Graves Mountain Lodge.  This event will be open for kids 12 and under to fish for stocked trout in the Rose River there at Graves Mountain, and our event is accompanied by a multitude of other venues and exhibits.

In addition to our own TU Membership Table, we’ll have fly tying demonstrations, fly casting demonstrations and instructions, and and stream/aquatic educational demonstration.  Our Chapter originated the Kid’s Day event years ago, and have since joined it with the Virginia Heritage Day where we team up with Jimmy Graves of Graves Mountain, and the VDGIF for this annual family event – – so, for those of you not serving in the volunteer/support effort for this event, please bring your families and come join us for a great time!!
