THE SHORT REPORT - REFRESH (F5) OFTEN
Mar. 03, 2016. A bunch of good things are happening here - The Marine Vocational Program (MVP) is growing and gaining the financial support of the business community. The kids are progressing with their swimming skills and their PADI dive certification classes start on April 2nd. A retired friend is donating his 28' Cape Dory (we are accepting repair donations because it needs an engine rebuild) which when operating will be the perfect vessel for teaching boat handling and basic seamanship - naturally we'll be teaching them a little about fishing too! See the "Boat" webpage: Here
Plans for the summer's MarlinFest and tournaments are underway - BVI tournament licenses have been applied for and paid for - the 44th. ABMT (Aug. 15, 16, 17, 19) and the Wet N' Wild Center Console (Aug. 17, 18) are both a go. There are now two ABMT venues to choose from... hopefully the storms will leave us alone this summer and we'll catch a bunch of blue marlin. The boys are reporting seeing and catching them out there right now!
Feb. 20, 2016. IGY's "Give Back Day" was a huge success! Company and community volunteers were out in full force today. Wow... they hung ceiling fans, cleaned and painted at the Boys and Girls Club and then gave the STSA's pool a fresh new look! See Photos
