Hmm... 2002 is out there a bit but should be OK... if I gotta go out there to secure people's interests, so be it.

Perfect timing for stripers on Cape Cod! It will be an epic clave.

Brewster's Nickerson State Park, or Washburn Island Wildlife Refuge (requires boats). Nickerson has 5 trout ponds, some of the best in the state - in addition to the big game coastal fishing nearby. The "posher" can choose from a seemingly infinite variety of places to stay on the hotel / motel mecca known as Cape Cod. In fact we could all stay in hotels on a shoestring if we split rooms.

Of course.

60-70 people! Aye Carumba!
