11/27 Surf Day 2019 update: --- great promo by Todd Corayer in latest edition of Fish Wrap Writer. If you're not on the distribution, check it out at fishwrapwriter.com --- vendor tables - 22 tables sold (12 club members / 7 outside vendors), 7 tables currently open --- food - 1 volunteer to make chili, seeking a volunteer to make clam chowder. Also planning to have meatball grinders, hot dogs, drinks, etc
Any suggestions for new vendor contacts (and any other ideas for the event) would be appreciated (please call/text me at 401-330-0449). Past Surf Day events have set a very high bar, almost all of the contacts from past events have made unsolicited comments about what a great event this is and they are looking forward to 2019.
Happy to report that vendor tables are "Sold Out". Many returnees but a few new vendors also. It appears we'll have a good mix of both new and used equipment (as advertised).
Got to say, hats off to Cliff (and all those who also contributed to this event through the years whose names I do not know) for establishing the reputation Surf Day enjoys within the fishing community. Most people that I spoke with had nothing but high praise for the event AND the people who run it.
After New Year we'll be looking to line up some volunteers - set up/breakdown room, serving food (food prep already covered), greeting guests at the door/take tickets, etc. Goal is to get enough people involved so a few do not get stuck with an overwhelming task.
To Joe and his team great day yesterday. Had fun met new and old friends. Thank You.

Much appreciated Richie.....a bit reluctant to mention names here (except 3 I'll mention at the end) because I know I'll forget someone. Suffice it to say, several people contributed their time and talents to make the show a success. A well-deserved special shout out, though, to Dottie Vickers, Diane Durand and my wife, Brenda, for their work behind the scenes in the kitchen.
