CT Council to meet at Legends

The Connecticut Council of Trout Unlimited will hold its July quarterly meeting at Legends Bed & Breakfast on the Farmington River on Wednesday, July 26, at 6 p.m.
Legends, located at 20 River Road in Barkhamsted, for the second year in a row has donated use of its property to TU for the July meeting. There will be a barbecue and chance to meet TU leaders from around the state.
The meeting will start one hour earlier than the usual 7 o’clock gathering. It will be a more informal meeting, with state TU leaders hoping to meet chapter members and officers, and talk about what is important to them.

Anglers may fish the Farmington River before and after the cookout and meeting.
Legends, which abuts the river, can arrange guided trips and fly fishing lessons. Legends also allows ready access to hiking, kayaking, mountain biking, hunting, cross country skiing and photography amid the scenery and wildlife of northern Connecticut. More information can be found by clicking here.
If you plan to attend this meeting, email John Kovach.
Important note about parking! You can park along the long driveway to Legends, but this means leaving sufficient parking spaces for his guests nearest the lodge.  Please note also that you should only park on the right side of the Legends driveway as you come it.  The left side has a sprinkler system vulnerable to damage if parked upon.
