On July 22nd we celebrated the 50th Anniversary of the Mission Bay Marlin Club. We had approximately 30 members attend. The event was held at the Bay Park Fish Co. The venue, food and service was exceptional.
Thank you Paul Himmelberger for all your hard work in putting this event together. It was great to hear all the stories of the beginning years of the club. Boy things have changed . Thank you also to Bob Smith and Jimmy Valentine for sharing all your stories of the early formation of the club.
Thank you Ray Fear for putting on another great raffle. Almost everybody went home with a gift. Larry Oberti engraved a dozen commemorative 50th Anniversary thermal cups sporting the 50th Anniversary retro MBMC logo. Really cool. Thank you again Larry for your donation. The big winner was Dennis Ogden who took home a Shimano 16hg Reel.
The 50th anniversary tee shirts are pretty much sold out. If you are still interested in purchasing them please contact Jim Kelly.
It’s that time of year we ask everybody in the club to reach into their wallets and make a donation for the 49th Marlin Tournament. We are dedicating this years tournament in memory of Jerry Lively who passed away this year.
Thank you to all the board members who put in all the hours to keep your club one of the best clubs around.
