GRTU COVID-19 Community Support
In light of the current global crisis, GRTU would like to do what we can to help! With the success of our recent Bonfire T-shirt campaign, we are using ALL proceeds through 4/30/20 to support local fly shops and the senior citizens in our home water area. With the proceeds through the end of March, we will be raffling off (4) $200 gift certificates we purchased to support our friends at Action Angler & Outdoor Center, Living Waters Fly Fishing, Gruene Outfitters, and ReelFly Guide Service and Fly Shop. We will have 20 raffle tickets available for each $200 Gift Certificate at $10 per ticket. Once those are sold we will raffle off the gift certificate and announce the winner on Facebook and Instagram.

All Proceeds from this raffle will go to support the CRRC of Canyon Lake Senior Citizen Food Bank.
