The annual  M/S Surf Club Tournament : Oct 17, 18, 19
Our Club has participated in this tournament for the past 9 years and its one of our favorite events as a group. Again this year we will participate and support the M/S Tournament and its cause with the donation fee. However as a club we have made a decision to not weigh in any fish and avoid the kill part of the Tourney. Two other teams, the Connecticut Surfcasters Club and the Stripped-Bass.Com Team have already committed to doing the same. So we will join them in a conservation effort to avoid killing any more fish.

So we will fish the tourney as a catch and release tourney. Please make plans to attend the breakfast on Sunday at 8:30 at the Andrea Hotel restaurant on Atlantic Ave, Misquamicut - Westerly.

Tourney starts:
Friday @ 6:00 p.m. and ends Sunday 8:00 a.m.. Fishing area is from the Narrow River to Napatree Point

Nominations for Club Officers will be tonight. If you would like to run for a Board position, now is the time.
