November Monthly Meeting

Our final meeting of the year is Wednesday, November 15th at 6:30 at Bill Jackson’s in Pinellas Park.

Our speaker will be Carol Reed, our resident artist. Just in time for the holidays, she will lead a class in glass painting.  Bring your own glass or glasses and Carol will have the paint, brushes, and supplies.  Please also bring $3 to donate to Carol for the supplies.

We’ll have a potluck so if you are so inclined, bring your favorite dish to share.

Have ideas for trips to do next year?  Bring those to discuss.

If we don’t see you on Wednesday, have a great holiday season and we’ll see you in 2019!

We had a full house at the August monthly meeting.   Our speaker was Dr. Stephen Geiger, a research scientist and the Molluscan Fisheries Subsection Leader at FWC.  He taught us all about scallops so we will be well educated for our scalloping trip to Homosassa this weekend.

As a reminder, if you are going on the scalloping trip, we have a FAQ for you and check out this post for a link to a trip report from a previous scalloping trip and a video of the late Terry Tomalin and his son Kai when they went scalloping for an ABC Action News story.

Scalloping in Homosassa

Our August trip will be our annual scalloping trip to Homosassa.  Planning to attend or going scalloping on your own?  Here is a FAQ we developed a few years ago with tips if your are new to scalloping or reminders if you’ve done it before.  You can read about one of our previous Scallop Scurry trips and here is a video of the late Terry Tomalin and his son Kai when they went out scalloping for an ABC Action News story.  Questions about the scalloping trip?  Drop a note to info@theadventurouswoman.org

We had a small turnout for our July monthly dinner but nonetheless we enjoyed the opportunity to catch up with each other.  We dined on a cheeseburger, a 4th Street Grill ( a hot pastrami and muenster cheese sandwich), a grouper sandwich and I forget what the fourth person had.  The service was great as was the food.  Summer vacations prevented some of the regulars from joining us. We look forward to catching up with the travelers at our August monthly dinner.
