to my NAF brother & sisters,
this is my first Captains log for the new "NAF
Messenger" as our online journal "Smoke
Signals" has come to an end. I am going to miss
it but we could just not find anyone interested in
taking over the Editor position from Buck who as you
all know has been the Editor for longer than he
wanted, but never the less stuck with it for us.
was going to write up on our fall encampment and how
much fun we had, and as you know because of it being
so dry that the USFS put a shooting ban as well as a
fire ban at our Apache Canyon spot. It rained there
today and is supposed to rain on and off until this
Sunday 12/16. So I am hoping that they will drop the
bans after this coming weekend and we can get a
winter encampment going. I will send you out an
email when the bans are lifted and when a date is
set. I am also working on the date for a spring
encampment for the CA company. Because of the 2013
being held in June the CA company will not have a
"summer encampment" but may have a small
one if any one is interested in going to (2) NAF
encampment in the same month.
seems like we have quite a few canoe folks in the
NAF. I really hope that they get together and
arrange a few canoe trips in the near future. And
like I usually say lets get out there and get on the
ground and have some fun.
the old "Smoke Signals" sure went out in a
ball of fire, looks like its still smoking from what
our background shows !!!
is interesting, our Sect-Treas Report shows a grand
total of $1650.47 - that amount has stayed close to
this figure since the early 2009, we gain a little
with new members, pay our bills and stay around this
amount! Can't cry about that as long as we have
funds to cover our expenses.
ya down the trail,
