as president, i thank everyone for supporting the club and contributing to making this year a successful one... i'd also like to congratulate frank for being elected new president.... the awards dinner was oustanding and i highly recommend J&R's Steakhouse in Stonybrook as a place to host your event... barry and frank came through big on that one!!!..way to go!...the food was very good and cheap and we kept an open bar thru the 4pm football games... sweet!... everyone left with raffle stuff and feeling good about the club... i'm looking forward to 2004!... nice to see yar and paul from ronkonkoma there... also thanks to all the ladies for supporting the club... hooked solid and theole34 made the trip, always great to see paulie and robbie...

paul - church will be in session soon. rev Frank presiding. alter boys nick and scott. the choir practice begins immediately.

the dinner was great! a great club you have lads. everyone walked away with awards... even scott.

nice trophies.. family atmosphere.. brown sodas.

i really think this club has built a foundation. there is a solid base for a club to grow on now. frank will be great as the head for the year to come and mike d did a wonderful job. craig did a great job picking the lakes, and keeping the txs clean. rob abd barry helped to keep it smooth too. great jobs boys.

i belv you are in need of a Jr division for the "littles" that were running around.

Question - What is the minimum age to join and fish ESBA? I am now 16 and will probally be joining L.I.B. this season now that I am able to. The age requirements limited me in the past to fish in most clubs. thanks - Pete

(I think I asked this question in the past but I can't find where I "filed" the answer)
