Folks

 

A couple of updates from the club:

 

· Today the MV Surfcasters made a $1000 donation to the 7’th annual American Heroes Saltwater Challenge.  We’ve been supporting this event financially and with a large volunteer team at the East Beach outing for the soldiers and families.  The event takes place Oct 12-15 this year.  More details to follow re: the East Beach outing.

· Would encourage the club members to consider making a personal donation as well.  Please refer to the following link:

·  The Surfcasters and Larry’s Tackle got together and purchased a pier fish landing net for the new OB fish pier.  The net will be set up at the pier tomorrow and removed at the end of the Derby

· There was a typo in the recently distributed email version of the Aug newsletter, incorrectly listing the min striped bass weigh-in as 34”, it’s 32”. (The MVSA Newsletter in the BLOG section of the MVSA website has been corrected)

·  There are still several fillet shifts open during the Derby as follows: PM shifts - 9/15, 17, 22, 24, 29, and 10/1 & 8 (8:00-10:00PM) as well as AM shifts on 10/8, 9, 10, & 15 (8:00-10:00AM).  It’s a great opportunity to represent both the Surfcasters & the Derby.  If interested please contact Phil Horton or you can reply through the CONTACT US page on the MVSA website and Phil will be notifiedu.       

The grand prize Eastern boat arrived on island this AM.  Pictures can be found on the Derby FB page.  It’s a beauty.

 

Wishing you all an enjoyable and safe Derby, go catch ‘em Surfcasters.
