NOTE CHANGE IN MEETING LOCATION - Longview Country Club
LCFF Board voted to hold meetings at Longview Country Club’s Card Room.
Please feel free to “come as you are” as the Country Club has relaxed its dress code to welcome jeans and casual attire. About the only dress standard the Club requests is a collared shirt. Food and beverage will be from the menu and one can expect somewhat higher cost than the Carriage, though there are many options that are reasonably priced.
Address for Longview Country Club is a short road just off Pacific Way at 41 Country Club Drive. If you haven’t been there before, the entrance is first right after you cross 30th avenue interchange when coming from downtown or Kelso on Pacific Way. Keep going up to the end of the short drive (there are a couple houses on either side as you approach the Country Club). A large parking lot has both upper and lower levels - swing through the upper level and you will see the entry to clubhouse on your left, a set of large wooden double-entry doors.. Once inside the main door, turn and keep to the left. You’ll wind past the restrooms until you see the bar. Turn hard left as you get to the bar and the Card Room is down a very short entry ahead.
Hope to see you there, it really is a nice venue.

Swofford Pond Outing
Saturday, June 2nd
Water is at a good temperature, fish are ready and, I have heard the catching has been great. Fish areas of overhanging
trees, mud flats and shallow water (1‐2 feet) near the shore, where you may see Bluegill nestng. If you don’t catch them right off, move to a different spot. Bright colored poppers should buy you lunch.
Speaking of lunch, Jerry and Bob Buchman will be sponsoring the oung, with Jerry manning the fry pan. Remember to bring your fillet knife as you are responsible for cleaning your lunch.
Get out as early as you desire and put a few ‘gills into your pail, but be sure to get down to Tacoma City & Light, Mossyrock Park about noon or so to skin your catch in me for a fish fry lunch. Don’t forget the parking fee, $5/vehicle at my last recollection but might bring a couple more in case inflation hits the park. We will be meeting all the way down, near the boat launch parking area.
Directions are; US 12 (White Pass Highway) east from I5 to the town of Mossyrock. At the light (as you reach Mossyrock) turn right from US12 and go through town to a “T” in the road. Turn le at the “T” and go about 2.5 miles to Swofford Rd. Turn right on Swofford Rd. to the lake, about 3 miles. To get from the lake to the park for the
picnic, go back on Swofford Rd to the intersection (3 miles) and turn right rather than le to go back to Mossyrock.
Hope to see you there!
