An objective of our Chapter is to be more integrated with our local communities, i.e., Arvada, Golden, Idaho Springs, Lakewood, and Wheat Ridge. To that end, we’re beginning to engage in a number of quid-pro-quo arrangements with these communities—we help them with selected events, and these communities allow us to set up a booth to disseminate information about our Chapter in hopes of generating more angler interest in our organization, and possibly increasing membership.
On June 22 nd , the city of Arvada is sponsoring “Arvada on Tap”, a craft beer and BBQ fest. Breweries from all over Colorado will be present, offering 3-ounce samples and 12-ounce pours of their latest offerings. In addition, there will be live music and home brewing demonstrations. Our Chapter has been invited to provide volunteers for this event, which will be held at the Ralston Park Addition at 64 th and Simms Street. As a full-day event volunteer, you’ll get a free “volunteer bracelet” for beer sampling and a volunteer t-shirt to boot. Shift volunteers will get an entry bracelet which can be upgraded to beer tasting and a t-shirt.
We’ll have a 10 X 10 foot booth from which to “spread the gospel” about WDTU. Set up will start at 1 PM, so we’ll be meeting at 12:45 PM. The event runs from 2 to 6 PM. We’ll be asked to help with clean-up after the event closes. This should be a fun event (the free entry will help). Dan Pass is spearheading this activity for us, and he is looking for 5 to 10 volunteers. If you’re interested and/or want more information, call Dan at 303-877-5715.
