Martha’s Vineyard Surfcasters Association banquet is Jan. 24


Fishermen who would like to shake off the winter chill by sharing fishing stories and hot chowder are invited to attend the Martha’s Vineyard Surfcasters Association annual meeting at noon Saturday, Jan. 24, in the Baylies Room at the Old Whaling Church in Edgartown.

The meeting will include a buffet lunch, a fundraiser raffle and silent auction, and an update on Norton Point and Chappy beach conditions by Chris Kennedy, The Trustees of Reservations island superintendent. New and prospective members are welcome, according to a press release.

The club charter states its purpose is “to encourage the sport of surfcasting; to gather for entertainment and good fellowship; to promote and uphold sound conservation practices and laws, and to see that these laws are properly carried out by members; to further good sportsmanship; and to seek and protect public access to fishing areas on Martha’s Vineyard.”
