Okay, Ladies and Gents….
It’s that time of year again. For we musky anglers this has many meanings. Firstly, it is the best time of year to catch a giant, we all know this. Secondly, there are only nine days left in the season. Nine DAYS!?!?!?!? Yep, nine days!!! Thirdly, we are approaching our famous (at least a little bit (Scott says it used to be infamous)) Christmas Party!!!! Not only do we get an amazing buffet dinner at a majorly discounted price of $7 a head, but we also get to share warm stories from the 2013 season, and talk and generally catch-up with each other in a very relaxed setting. Let’s face it; December’s meeting is always the best of the year. Also, we give away our Jr. Angler awards at this event, so if your Jr. Angler has caught a musky this year, please bring them! The kids are always super pumped to receive their awards, and it is definitely heartwarming to see youngsters so excited about angling (please contact Scott M. prior so we can make sure to have their award ready. He informs me he hasn’t received any entries. )
The party is informal, but there are a few suggestions:
1.) Please make sure you pay $7 for your meal (CHEEEEAAAPPPP!!!!!!) (Trust me I did party planning, and this is the best deal in WNY)
2.) It is suggested that you bring a dish to pass…… preferably a dessert. (Not a requirement, but a suggestion that Scott hopes you follow, lol! He’s a bit of a sugar junky these days.)
3.) As in previous years, we are holding a food drive for the Food Bank of WNY. The first year we managed to donate 175 lbs. of food. (Not bad!) The second year we donated 258 lbs. of food. (Even better!!) This year I am posting the challenge to all NMA members that we destroy our previous totals. Scott and I are blue collar kids (he’s more of a blue collar middle aged man) and if we can manage to pick up $20 worth of groceries for those less fortunate than ourselves, I’d bet you can as well. Please, please help those in need and bring a bunch of non-perishable food items. I can’t wait to see you all at our fabulous Christmas Party, and I thank you in advance for all of your donations!
PS: Judging from our Web site membership, you are probably male. Let your wife or girlfriend know about our food drive, that way we’re guaranteed to break our record from last year! Scott would forget his head if I didn’t remind him! (Seriously, he would. Girls please remind your boys! And vice-versa!!!)
