Hey Tim,

Welcome to SA and MACA. I probably owe my dues to MACA come to think of it.

I am familar with Valley Island, just north of Rose Island, right? I do some duck hunting up that way. Very nice!

Hello joe and Bulldog.
yep- right next to Rose island- quite the crew with boats on Valley. If you see a couple boats anchored in/near the marsh its usually one of us, just stop by and visit!

Yes I have seen that group of boats out anchored out in front of the houses. I was up there for the summer meeting at Dicks. Been pretty busy down here the last couple of years but hopefully I am going to try some bow fishing myself this year. Got the equipment, just got to find the time. I will have to try to stop by! :old_glory:

Doug,

That would be great! I looked at Alumitech boats before I bought mine. Very nice people and a good product as well. You will be very pleased. Hope to run into you.

I will try and put that into my schedule as well. I had to pull out early last year and really didn't hook up with everyone. Would like to do so this year.

I had a list of the members, etc but I can't seem to find it. Give me a bit and I will get back to you on that.

That sounds like a real nice boat! You should post a picture so we can see it!!!!

That is one sweet boat. Very very nice! MACA information. In regards to dues, you can contact Tim Winiecki 989-225-0127 car phone. He can get you the amount and address. I think it is 20-30 bucks for the year.
