Congratulations to Cutthroat Chapter member Mike Nicholson who was recently named Volunteer of the Year by Colorado Trout Unlimited!  Mike was honored in recognition of the countless hours of time Mike has donated while serving for seven years as the Director of the Colorado River Conservation and Fly Fishing Youth Camp (“Colorado Youth Camp”).  David Nickum, Executive Director of Colorado Trout Unlimited, presented Mike with his award at CCTU’s May 20th meeting.  The Colorado Youth Camp, which was established by Sharon Lance (another Cutthroat Chapter member), provides coldwater conservation education as well as fly fishing instruction on everything from tying flies to casting for  14-18 old students from across Colorado.  The Colorado Youth Camp has served as a model for other TU chapters around the country.  Mike’s contributions to the Colorado Youth Camp have been invaluable.  Next month, Mike and Sharon will be at it again for the 2014 Colorado Youth Camp being held near Weston, Colorado.  Again, hearty congratulations to Mike Nicholson, Colorado Trout Unlimited’s 2014 Volunteer of the Year.  Atta Boy, Mike!
