We had another terrific Family Day which everyone seemed to enjoy. I’d like to thank all the volunteers who helped out, in particular Romel Notar for arranging the day and in fact did most of the shopping. Once again I don’t like to name names because I know I’ll forget somebody but thanks to all for volunteering and to the members that attended.
Once again this year we will be hosting the Quantico Marine Corp Band at Miamogue on October, 5th for drinks and bar food only after their performance at the Klein. Please come on down and support our military and meet some really great men and women who serve our country. Free tickets are available behind the bar for 2 performances that they will be conducting at the Klein in Bridgeport. It’s a great show and a must see.
Some members have already hauled their boats for winter storage and so the rush begins. Please contact your Yard Master with your haul form for placement in the yard. Haul forms are located behind the bar and will be given out by the bartender on duty. This is a very difficult job and we need your cooperation in this matter. If you have issues with your vessel, such as pulling a motor, that requires a particular location for access during the winter notify Bob Cole as soon as possible and he will try to accommodate you.
Upcoming events; Marine Corp Band on October 5th. Ladies meet and greet on October 10th. Month long Blackfish tournament starts October 10th. Friday night dinner on October 12th. 4 Club Bluefish tournament on October 14th. Bill Chapman Saturday night dinner on October 20th (details soon). Kids Halloween party on October 27th.

Good & Welfare
October is here and so is the start of the holiday season. Before you know it Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas will be rolling in. Personally, I think boating season needs to be extended a few more months. Who says you can’t celebrate Christmas on the boat???
Enjoy your time on the water whether you fish or are just out there to enjoy. There is still plenty of good days left. October so far looks like it will deliver some nice, warm weather. So get out & the most out of the boat.
Please continue to keep our friends that have been ill or fallen on tough times in your thoughts and prayers.
If you have any news for Good & Welfare, please contact me at 203-394-7122 or email@example.com.
