From Outgoing President Joshua Rust:
Thanks everyone for coming out to our 2015 Banquet Saturday night! We had an amazing evening with over $20k in prizes! Bill Frank's presentation on the history of Cincinnati brewing and OTR was informative and fun. It was a great night as we came to celebrate our club and raise funds to support our efforts in conservation, preservation, and education.
Congrats to those who took home President's Awards: Ron Francis won this year's Impact Award, John Branam took the Leadership Award, Don Becher won the Advisor Award, and Josh Lillard won the Hal Burch Award (formerly the Exemplar Award). Congrats to Charlie and Sheila Meyer on winning the 2015 Michael J Arnold Fly Fisher of the Year Award. It was well deserved and thanks again for everything you do.
I want to say thanks for making my last evening as President so special. I look forward to Tom Bader's Presidency and want to encourage everyone to volunteer wherever they can to continue our club's tradition of excellence both in what we do and how much fun we have. Thank you too to all of our sponsors and the generous support of our members and friends. Here's to a successful 2016!
