Sportsmen to meet Feb. 9
The annual meeting and dinner of the Territorial Sportsmen will be 6 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 9, at Juneau Yacht Club. Items on the agenda include the proposed new boat and airplane tax, cabin closures by the U.S. Forest Service and the 4-H shooting program.

President Drake Peterson said presentations will be made by members and local legislatures will be on hand to speak with the audience.

"It's just a good, fun time," Peterson said. "We'll have several presentations and updates about what we're doing."

The meeting is open to the public and a meal is served at 7 p.m. and is free to members and $5 for non-members.

"If you're concerned about an item, come and speak to one of the members," Peterson said. "Even though there's not a public speaking time in the agenda, it's a chance to meet the people involved and voice your opinion to the constituency."
