the Conway Boat Launch on the south fork of the Skagit River provides access to hunters, boaters, fishing and recreaƟon on the water.  Skagit County Parks and RecreaƟon provide    year‐round maintenance at this site including leveling, trash cleanup, silt removal and a Port‐a‐PoƩy during the high usage months.  When the river is high this area is prone to flooding so maintenance of the ramp is necessary throughout the year.  ss to the site is made possible through the vigilance of Parks department personnel like Mike McCutchin (lead) and crew.  Northwest Chapter members Rick Skiba, Rich Phillips and Rick Billieu recently presented Brian Adams (Skagit Parks and Rec Director) with a check in the amount of $500 for their efforts in maintaining this launch site.  The Northwest Chapter has agreed to include the launch site in their cleanup efforts in the region as part of the county’s Adopt‐A‐Park Program.

Cleanup Time      A soggy morning didn’t hinder the volunteers at our annual cleanup of the Skagit Wildlife Area    Samish Unit!  These 16 volunteers swept through all areas of the unit including the 12 blinds and the       surrounding dike, collecƟng plenty of trash, shells (spent and un‐spent), beer cans, boƩles and you name it ‐‐ discarded.  Drainage of the unit by WDFWpersonnel was well under way so access to all areas and a through cleanup was made easy.  Thanks to   these volunteers for their outstanding level of effort supporƟng this yearly cleanup effort ‐‐ Mike Rathvon, Steven Massingale, Chris MarƟn, Greg Huggins, Belin‐da RoƩon, Ethan Lehman, Jenny Barker, Chris Baker, Joe Molitor, Rick Skiba, Oscar Graham, Pat BunƟng, Greg BriƩan, EmmiƩ Roth, and Sabrina BriƩan‐Hughes. Sign them up      Get the word out! From April 15th through June 30th New WWA Members are entered into a drawing to win a hand‐built Hybrid Layout Duck Boat.  We have partnered with the experts at Fiberglass  Supply of Burlington, hƩp:www.fiberglasssupply.com to build this boat.  Fiberglass Supply offers FREE“How to Basic Build” demos each month at their facility.  Members of all chapters are welcome to join in on this Boat Build.  The build process is being documented on our Chapter Facebook page, Northwest Washington Waterfowl AssociaƟon at: hƩps://www.facebook.com/waducks.org/       So get with your friends, family members, ac‐quaintances and other hunters and let them know a one year membership puts them in the drawing for this bad boy boat.  Share the opportunity to own this boat and share our story on the Chapter’s Facebook page.

In archery we have something like the way of the superior man. When the archer misses the center of the target, he turns round and seeks for the cause of his failure in himself.

Some pictures from Twin City Sportsmen.  Cheap to join, I think it's only $20 a year.

Matt was the chapters guest and did pretty good for his first round. I belive he shot a 17.

My understanding is that the Seattle chapter meets at Kenmore each month, and several other chapters have at least the occasional meeting at a place to do some shooting.

While there was nothing that could be done to stop this from happening  WWC MEMBERS  helped secure some modification to the excavation plans. Some of the spoils will be mounded up to provide small island a and some low spots that will remain flooded on a low tide will be present. Keep an eye out on the progress to make sure the concessions are followed through on.

Meeting tomorrow evening.

Just thought I would share a picture of a great donation from our Friends at Woodenville Whiskey.

The founders are hunters and donated a customized bottle of Whiskey with our logo on it.

Perhaps a Hunt Wa Hunting party Table should be organized?
