The Gaff Line
The Marlin Club of San Diego Monthly Newsletter
From the Bilge
By Wayne Slahor, Club President
The season is starting as seen by the increase in the number of boats at our docks and vehicles and trailers in the lot. Remember – call and let us know how long you will be at the dock – there is a 3-day maximum. Also if you are leaving your car or trailer be sure to contact us prior – we have events scheduled that will require the use of the entire lot.
And to officially Kick-Off the SEASON we’ve decided to have a Club Potluck on July 26, 2003. To add more fun we are also having a crazy shirt contest. See inside for more details. It would be nice to have old and new members get together and share experiences. So, come on over to the club and share a few…. We look forward to seeing you there!!
Recently, Don Blackman became ill - We send our wishes for a speedy recovery and hope to see Don & Shirley at the Potluck.
We have been catching up on our project list but still have a few to finish – come on down, get involved – this is YOUR club. I would like to thank everyone who has helped – we really appreciate your support!!
The ILTT Committee is meeting this week and will iron out all the gruesome details. As soon as we have finalized all the details it will be posted at the club, flyers will be mailed and the website updated. Thank you for your support and comments.
VOLUNTEERS STILL NEEDED TO HELP AT THE CLUB.

we want one bigger than we have caught before,
something just a little bigger than it’s reasonable to hope for.”
