 Early Scale Certification Available
Posted on 01/19/2015

VAC Weighmasters Ryan Noland and Larry Allen want to reduce the number of scales they have to certify at the February Membership Meeting.  They are willing to do special certifications for multiple scales early.

If you and a couple of fellow Anglers can gather your scales together and come up with a group of scales for early certification, then please contact Ryan.  Ryan will work with you to set up a convenient place and time for your early certifications.
