Monthly Meetings

When:  GBTU chapter meetings are held on the first Monday of every month, from October till April.  All are welcome to attend and we encourage you to bring friends and family.  

Time: Meetings start at 6pm and typically last till 8pm.  However, with our new meeting location, many members show up at 5pm, grab a bite to eat, drink an adult beverage, tie some flies, and talk tall tales of their fishing adventures.

Where:  Roundabout Diner.  Rte 95 & Rte 1, on the Portsmouth Traffic Circle

Costs:  All of our monthly meetings are open to the public (TU members and non-members), and there is no charge for attendance.  However, in recognition of our efforts to host monthly meetings, and our continued efforts in the areas of local conservation-restoration-education, we kindly suggest making a cash donation (at each meeting we simply pass the hat). All cash donations are welcome, but typical donations range from $5-$10, per person.  In advance, thank you for your continued support of Great Bay TU.
