Welcome to Valley Forge Trout Unlimited

The 40th Annual VFTU TROUT SHOW
has been postponed due to the Covid-19 pandemic

Dear VFTU Members and Friends,
For everyone that has enjoyed and participated in our annual Trout Show over the last 40 years, it’s disappointing to announce that we must postpone this year’s event till a later date yet to be determined.
The Downingtown Area School District is restricting large gatherings at its facilities because of the Covid-19 pandemic.  This is the right decision and already follows event cancellations and postponements across our region.  We had recognized the Covid-19 situation would undoubtedly impact our plans and were at present considering a postponement when the district contacted us.
The Main Raffle tickets we sent out, preprinted with your names and addresses, will still be valid, so please hold on to the tickets and bring them to the show when rescheduled, or you can mail in the tickets now. Tickets for the main raffle that any of you may have already sent in will be honored when we reschedule the Trout Show.

We will post updates and information about the Trout Show rescheduling on this web site (valleyforgetu.org) and by email (if we have yours). Rescheduling information will also be posted on our Facebook page and sent by our HipChime app.
