The meeting was brought to order by Jim Van Daley, President, with a salute to the flag and a moment of silence for our troops. The minutes of the August 22 meeting were read and approved. The treasurers’ report was read and approved. COMMITTEE REPORTS:

TRUSTEES: No report.

SUNSHINE: No one reported sick.

FEDERATION: Tony Zachary has tickets for the Friends on NRA to be held October 1. Because the participation to the dinner was down there was a smaller donation for the FOD kids.

NJ MARINE FISHERIES: Mid Atlantic will meet in mid-October and decide fishing limits by December.

WEBSITE/FACEBOOK: Posted Day on the Bay pictures. Pictures from the picnic will be posted soon.

TOURNAMENTS: Land & Sea and the Striper and Perch tournaments are still on going. It would seem the cost to have the weigh-ins at Pitney tavern would cost less than the club hosting it at the legion Jim and Lou will meet with the owner soon.
