 2018 Annual Meeting, Pig Pickin’ and Russ Privett Tournament

By Charles Lockett, Director #12383

Mark your calendars for the 2018 Annual Meeting and Pig Pickin’. The event will be held on Saturday, May 26, 2018 at “Klub Koru” in Avon N.C., next to the Avon Pier. They have a handicap ramp and a covered facility with lots of parking. The meeting begins at 3:00 P.M., with the Pig Pickin’ to follow.

The day will include great music and lots of prizes! “Topside” will be our caterer again this year and music will be provided by “Jus Chillin” (featuring our own Bill King!). You will have the opportunity to be introduced to our new Directors, along with our award winners for 2017/2018.

Be sure to bring your checkbook and/or your credit cards (yes, we can accept credit card purchases) for the many Raffle and Live Auction items that will be up for grabs.

As always, we are looking to increase our membership -- guests are welcomed! We would love to have others hear about our efforts and our goals and consider becoming a part of our organization.

We have lowered the cost of tickets for adults to $10.00 in advance, with the cost for children under 16 being $5.00 in advance. Deadline for ticket purchases is May 15th. A limited number of tickets will be available at the door so it’s best to get your tickets early! No tickets will be sold during the Annual Meeting.

Russ Privett Tournament

Please do not miss our 2018 Russ Privett Memorial Member/Guest Surf Fishing Tournamentheld on Saturday morning, May 26 just before the Annual Meeting and Pig Picking.

Trophies will be awarded to winners in two categories: Youth (under 16 years old) and Adult (16 years and older).

The tournament will be from 7:00 A.M. until 12:00 P.M. You must have your feet in the sand to be eligible for a trophy. All catches must be reported to an Official NCBBA Weigh Station by 1:00PM that day. Weigh Stations will report the results to NCBBA.

You will be fishing for Black Drum, Bluefish, Croaker, Cobia, Flounder, Gray Trout, Speckled Trout, Pompano, Sea Mullet, Sheepshead, Spanish Mackerel, Spot and Striped Bass.

Fish will be judged by weight. In the case of a tie, winners will be determined by length.

Be sure to adhere to all NC Fishing Rules and Regulations regarding minimum lengths. When reporting, please provide the shop attendant your NCBBA number. If the fish is caught by a guest, be sure to report their name and then your name and membership number. Be sure to provide the age for anyone participating in the Youth Division.

Make the tournament a Family Affair by encouraging your children or grandchildren to enter the tournament and the whole family joining us for the trophy presentations at the Annual Meeting, beginning at 3:00 P.M. Also remember to get your tickets early for the pig pickin’ and the fun times that follow!

Good luck!
