SSWA MEETING, BRIGHTWATERS LIBRARY on Monday the 3rd, November 2014 at 07:30 PM


THANK YOU
By: Curt

Thank you to All the members who came down to Cedar Beach Marina on Sunday and helped out at our Annual Waterfowl Festival. A beautiful day helped make the day a success. (A little breezy but what can you do). Without your help, I would not be able to keep doing the show each year. It is great to see that you value YOUR CLUB so much as to donate your time to help out. YOU ARE ALL THE BEST.


Thank you also to all who attended the show. Vendors, demonstrators, and supporters. It is your support that enables us to carry on the good work we do. Thank you Thank you!!!!



The SSWA's Annual Festival is THIS Sunday. Cedar Beach Marina is on OCEAN PARKWAY in Babylon. DIRECTIONS: From Eastern L.I., go south on Robert Moses Parkway to Ocean Parkway and then go east to the Marina.  From western L.I., go south on either Wantagh or Meadowbrook Parkways to Ocean Parkway, then go East to the Marina.  Remember to bring non perishable foods for our annual Food Drive to help out less fortunate Long Islanders. See you there.



Sunday Oct 26th 2014 is the 34th Annual Duckboat Show and Waterfowl Festival. Vendors interested call now to get a table. checks for the tables need to be in by Oct 15th. send them in NOW!!!!!


Members sign up to work the show. All hands need to be on deck. Please help out.




Our October general meeting was held on Monday, October 6th. Mike Babbish was our guest speaker, and he did a presentation on hunting wood ducks, complete with some candid video of his hunts.  He also included some video on Snow Goose hunting. Also at the meeting, updates were given on our buddy program, youth waterfowl program, the recent gun show, our decoy loaner program, and the handicapped blind project at Flanders. We made plans for our Duckboat Show and Waterfowl Festival on Sunday, October 26th, and a sign up sheet was passed around for members to sign up for the free duck calling clinic.  There will be 2 classes held, one at 11 am, and the other at 1 pm.  There are still a few seats left for the 11 am class, and some for the 1 pm class as well. If you are interested, call me to pre-register at 631-862-8518.  We are limiting each class to 12 students, and seats are filling up fast.


I hope to see you all at the duckboat show on the 26th.


Ron
