LETTER FROM OUR PRESIDENT  8-23-18



Hello to all,

    I am happy to let you know we have an exciting year coming up but to get to where we want to go we need lots of help. Expanding our membership , building our web site, and having a successful show are all major objectives for this coming year. We can not do it alone and need all of you to pitch in and help in any way you can. It is our objective to build a membership of friends old and new that share a common interest in salt water tackle and salt water fishing. So please sign up. Join us, talk up the site, and share what ever you can with the rest of us so we can learn and appreciate the objects and history of our hobby. 

    Building our Website still remains paramount for us to go forward. We need your help. Anything you can contribute would be greatly appreciated. Pictures of lures, information on plug builders, old photos, artwork, tackle used and the people who used it. It is our objective to build a website that we can all go to that has captured the history of our hobby and sport.

    For the coming 2019 year we again are going to keep our membership dues at 25.00 per year. This year tables to our show are only 15.00 each.

    We also will be having a members only night on the Friday night before the show. Members can start moving into the show space at 12 PM. This is a members only buy, sell and trade session that gives all the members time to talk and mingle. Most of us arrive the day before the main show. This gives us a little extra time before the general public comes in on Saturday. Everyone seems to enjoy this. 
    
   Again we are going to keep the general admission to the 2019 show free. This is to give everyone a chance to come in and see what the club is all about. Attendance at last years show was great, lets do it once again.  We feel it will boost membership and promote the hobby.  Growing the hobby is what the club is all about.

     In the spring of 2018 we had a very successful show in Bourne, Mass. with 60-70 tables of vintage and contemporary tackle .This gave us all a chance to gather together to show some tackle, share information, develop friendships, and swap stories.

Due to the Trowbridge Tavern closing and no information on if or when it will open again we had to find a new location. After months of hunting for a new location we found a central location that offers everything our show needs. We decided to move the show to Whites of Westport in Westport, Mass.  Full details for the show can be seen on our show page.  


    It will be a great year and I for one look forward to seeing old friends and meeting and making new ones. Please join us and welcome to our club.

   Tight Lines,

Dave Dennison
President SWLCC
