I need to give Emily a headcount by tomorrow. Please respond only if you are 100% for this Saturday 9am @ Morris Island. BYO lunch. If you want to be fishing down there earlier NP I will walk the group down to the bluffs.
There are 10-15 pairs.
Committed thus far:
(still waiting for other tentatives to confirm)
BB day plan:
(forum guys fish early in area - lighthouse or Morris Is)
08:45: Juro and (optional) late Forum Arrivals will meet Emily and BB's at Wildlife Refuge HQ
(some of you prefer to be down there fishing already so I will escort the BB group)
09:00: Group will walk down to Morris Island Bluffs to greet fishermen
(brief presentation on fishing and safety)
12:30: Lunch / Award Ceremony at Morris Island
13:00: Group will walk back to Refuge for National Park Staff event
(forum mentors are free to stay and fish the flood - also Keith can be hired to shuttle anglers over to SB / NM from 1p to 5p for those interested)
Look your best - there may be photo coverage by the Cape Cod Times.
If you want to be immortalized with a pink sluggo, that's totally up to you! :lildevl:

Juro..I am committing , but I will be there around 10AM....But I will be there...John
Just spoke with BB/BS -
Perhaps due to hard times we will only have 7 BB pairs + staff. So for the first time ever, the Forum mentors will outnumber the participants!
If anyone will have difficulty attending, I'd like to save your generous offer to be a mentor for next year when I hope things are back up to the high numbers we've experienced in the past for this event.

we can take turns fishing then, and if one of us catches a fish we can pass the rod to the shorts :chuckle:
Juro, I'll bow out this year, and save it for next year. An early rising tide with a couple of buds makes the decision more palatable.

Juro... I am suppost to fish from a boat in the area from 6am to 9....I am expected to be dropped off on the MI beach around 9:30am. I can still show up despite not having an assignment. Maybe take some of the kids for a quick ride around the tub.

actually, i'll bow out too - we are all set with the donation though, I can get the honey do list done and fish the early am tide tomorrow. . . .
I am glad I ws able to help in some way anyway.
