Meeting Location Changed

To all BFF and WSA Members-

Following a serious fire at the Maple Tree restaurant in McFarland on October 5th, both the Wisconsin Smallmouth Alliance and the Badger Fly Fishers have located a new site for our monthly meetings. The Thirsty Goat restaurant, 3040 Cahill Main, Fitchburg, will be our new monthly meeting site. The Thirsty Goat offers a quiet room which will seat 50 people, excellent and affordable food, and a small bar in the room serving multiple refreshments. Meetings for both the WSA and BFF will begin with a social hour/dinner starting at 5:30 PM and the general meeting starting at 6:30 PM. Currently, we will be able to order off the menu and, as long as enough meals are ordered at each meeting, we will be able to continue this practice indefinitely. The alternative will be a buffet-style set up with fewer choices. Therefore, we encourage members to join us for dinner if it will work into your schedule. Except for the month of October, all WSA and BFF meetings will occur on the first Wednesday of the month as listed below. In October the WSA meeting will be at the Thirsty Goat on Tuesday, October 18th. Please note that the WSA and BFF meetings will alternate each month. We look forward to seeing you at our new home.
