We've ordered a bunch of 6' subs for lunch. I'm going to get some soda as well. It will probably come out to about $5 per person.
If this sounds good to you - say, "Im in."
We will have coffee
and dunkin donuts
for the morning as always!
I would strongly encourage everyone to get there between 9:00-9:15 am so you have time to check-in, get your name tag and grab a cup of coffee and a donut.

Let's make a difference!
I recently discovered that a fellow noreaster and surf fisherman (Wayne ? walrus22) received some very difficult news this past year. His precious 4 yr. old daughter Ariana was diagnosed with leukemia. As a father of four kids (two of my kids being girls - ages 5 and 4) this news really hit me and tugged on my heart strings. It has been a tough road for Ariana and the family. She has a long road ahead of her as it relates to chemo treatments and the side effects associated with chemo. The medical expenses that Wayne and his wife Giovanna face are very costly. After talking with others we thought it would be great to use all the proceeds from this NFSS surf fishing seminar to help out Ariana and the family. Wayne and Giovanna also have two other children?Matthew  and Justin . Please keep Ariana and the family in your prayers during this very difficult time.
Below is a picture of Ariana and Wayne while out surf fishing.
The second pic is more recent.
Martin (BennyBass) is a good friend of Wayne's and knows a lot more about all that is happening.
