On Monday, Sept. 8th, we had out first meeting of the new season.  Our Guest Speaker was Capt. Dallas Bengel, of DEC Law Enforcement. We discussed details of many of our upcoming events for the next three months.   We have a table at the IBEW Hall in Hauppauge on Sept 26-27, for the fall GUN SHOW. Please stop in and lend a hand at the table for a couple of hours.

Our Annual Duckboat Show and Waterfowl Festival is Set for Sunday, October 25th, a sign up sheet went around at the meeting for helpers on that day.  We need MORE HELP!  Even an hour or two is a big help. Contact Curt 661-0379 if you can help.

At the duckboat show, we are running a "Duck Calling Clinic".  This Clinic is not just for beginners, but for anyone who wants to polish their calling skills a bit. To guarantee a seat, you must pre-register.  The clinic is @ 35 minutes long, is indoors, and has a cap of 12 participants.  It will be run 2X, at 10:30 am, and at 11:45 am. E-mail to pre-register for one of the sessions.  Each participant will receive a free duckcall.

On November 2nd, we will be running a NYS Certified Waterfowl ID course at the Brightwaters Library on Montauk HWY at 5:30 sharp.  It is a 3 hour course which includes a state test. It will help you to ID ducks on the wing.  Passing the test earns you a NYS Waterfowl ID Certificate which is needed to hunt several State and Federal locations in NYS. The class is filling up fast, so if you are interested, e-mail to get on the list.

 Hope to see you at the shows!




The first meeting of the new "Duck Year" is this Tuesday, 7:30 p.m. Bay Shore/Brightwaters library. Hope all can make it. Have a happy and safe holiday weekend.

I found another ooops the printer made. A second business card was mistakenly removed from this newsletter. Peter Fazio is another supporter of the club. Peter donated the game dinner for 12 in your home for the feed fundraiser, which helped raise more money for the fund.

Once again I have to apologize to these two men for the error that occurred.

It is corrected in the newsletter section on this site. Check it out.

He will be hosting the Delta Waterfowlers dinner on Sept 20 at Bocce Beach. Call John Ferguson at 631-807-9251 for reservations.

Due to a mixup at the printers, one of the SSWA's special supporters was accidentally left out of the upcoming newsletter.

I apologize to Matthew for the mistake. Please go to his website and check out his calls. Matthew created the beautiful Duck and Goose call set with stand that was used at our Feed Fundraiser to help raise funds. Check it out in the gallery section. Once again I apologize for the mix-up.

Hey members, the SSWA is holding it's 3rd Annual BBQ and Pig Roast. Once again it is being held at WindSwept Marina in East Moriches. 215 Atlantic Ave. It is scheduled for SATURDAY Aug 15th - Raindate Sunday Aug 16th. It will start at 12:30

Here is what you gotta do.  1- Call curt at 631-661-0379. Give me your name and number of IMMEDIATE FAMILY members attending. 2- Mail me a check for $25.00 made out to SSWA and send to 32 Magro DR. North Babylon, NY 11703.  3- Show up the day of BBQ and I will give you back your check. That's right IT'S FREE!!  ( If you don't show up, we will cash the check to pay for the food we bought that you didn't eat).  Pretty easy right.

John Adams is having a pig roast from the marina, and SSWA will supply burgers, hot dogs, etc. We will have soda and water available. If you wish to bring your own "beverages", feel free or purchase them at the bar. Also if you have a favorite bbq dish, feel free to bring it to enhance the bbq even more. Also bring some chairs to sit on because I don't know how many are available and I don't want you standing all day. We have 2 shade canopy's that we set up.

Call me and I hope to see everyone there. A good time is had by all.
