    Is that clear enough?

    The MLPA process is almost over and it’s not looking good for the fisherman by ANY measure. TO BE CLEAR, if you are a fishermen this IS going to change where you fish and what you catch for the WORSE. This WILL put landings, tackle stores, marinas and charter boats out business. This WILL take jobs from honest, hardworking people who do what they love for a living.

    What can you do?

    There are two more KEY dates left in this battle. It’s NOT too late. YOU can still make a difference.

    We need YOU. YES YOU! Plain and simple we need BODIES to win this battle.

    The first event you can attend is your local AWARENESS RALLY. There are currently three of these organized for this Saturday September 5, 2009. PLEASE come out and bring your trailer boat, kayak, etc. with you for a PEACEFULL drive around your local Marinas and Launch Areas. There will be flyers, stickers and banners available to dress your vehicles up for the rally. PLEASE make every effort to attend and GET YOUR BUDDIES involved.

    Here are links to the events:

    very clear message. :appl:



    WE NEED EVERYBODY!

    PLEASE dont fall into the "somebody else will do it" mode......because even tho there are others "doing it", we are grossly outnumbered..........at least if you look at the actual attendence from the meetings.

    I KNOW THERE ARE MORE OF US THAN HAVE SHOWN UP.......so how about it gang?

    I will rent a friggin BUS if I need to to get people up to this meeting........who is with me?

    Bring your posters signs and banners! Bring the kids and grandparents! Line the streets and cheer on those in the caravan. You don't have to pull a trailer to be part of the caravan. Drive a car with posters, or a car with a kayak! Get balloons and streamers on your car! GET NOTICED OUT THERE! GET the word out to the local media and ask if they know about this! Don't assume someone will do it for you!

    Sign up for the potluck too by location: http://www.bdoutdoors.com/forums/fi...159240-mlpa-event-tailgaters.html#post1467092

    Anyone with megaphones? We need a BBQ grill for the SD event too! THis is going to be fun!

    Huge thanks to those who donated funds or participated in the auction events. This money helped to pay the costs of flyers to hand out during the event and for bumper stickers and some banners for all 3 locations! Thank you to Chuck (PoolMan) for the huge work in fundraising efforts and to Ali for the work to print and get the message out!

    Just wanted to add that I know fishing is going off right now and I see posts talking about going out Fri night and Sat.

    This is no joke people !!! Please think about going out after the rally on Sat.It's just one more day. We need as many bodies as possible to make a strong showing for the media.

    This is it !!! Bottom of the 9th with 2 outs. We need the big bats now !!!
    If you don't step up now you just may find your favorite tackle shop out of business the next time you drive down to it or your favorite 1/2 day boat no longer around, etc..................

    Looking forward to seeing you all at these events.

    Thanks again Ali & Jason for keeping this issue in the forefront of communication on BD.

    Outstanding job by all of you who have worked tirelessly in getting the word out to the general public.

    Go to Kinkos and bring a CD with a copy of those pics of your kids fishing. Have them blow it up into poster size and use it as your sign on the caravan. For black and white, it will be about $8-$10 for a poster size printout and about $40 for color. Put a sign on it saying, "I just want to fish!" Save the future of fishing for future generations!

    Great pics, make them count!

    We don't have a headcount as this is posted on various sites and people will show up without notifying us. Bring everyone you can to cheer us on!
