 TU members and friends,

Trout Unlimited along with the New Mexico Wildlife Federation, Albuquerque
Wildlife Federation and others will be hosting Valle Vidal Appreciation Day
Saturday, July 21.
Congressman Tom Udall will be speaking at the Shuree Lodge at 4 p.m.
Saturday and it is important that as many TU members and friends as possible
attend. Protecting Valle Vidal from oil and gas development was a major win
for sportsmen across the west and Udall was key in that victory. Showing up
to this event would make a powerful statement and could go a long way toward
furthering Trout Unlimited's conservation goals in New Mexico.

There will also be a kids camp and casting clinic beginning at 11 a.m. and
continuing until 4 p.m. There will be a chance to see the ongoing Comanche
Creek restoration project for those who are interested.

This is going to be a fun-filled opportunity in a gorgeous setting. More
importantly, it is a good chance for Trout Unlimited members to flex their
conservation muscle.

Hope to see you there!
