Sorry Catman & Big Rad,

Allot of things to keep track of with this Boycott. Man I need to go fishin! If I forgot you, please remind me. Thanks for the support. We could use some more, jump on the bandwagon guys!....Tightlines


To all P&S members:

Heres the deal folks. The residence of North Beach are blaming the fishermen for the noise and trash problems on the pier and the boardwalk.

The fact is most of the noise and trash comes from their on people and children. They party out there all the time and race their cars up the strip at all hours keeping the waterfront residence awake at night and we are getting the blame.

Last month at a town meeting a motion was voted on and passed by the residence to close the pier from 11:00pm to 6:00am. On July 1st they will close the pier to fishing at these hours.

A petition is being passed around the pier to stop the closing but we need more help!

Below is a statment to boycott North Beach Md. if they close the pier. Please copy and paste this statment into your e-mail program. Add your name, address, phone number and e-mail address to the list and send it to Mayor Mark R. Frazer at [email protected] or print it out and snail mail it. Send a carbon copy to me at [email protected] In the next day or so I will do a (BOYCOTT NORTH BEACH) webpage and I would like to add your names to a list on the page.

When the page is completed I will send the URL to Mayor Frazer and submit it to all search engines. I've used this tactic before and it works well, there is power in numbers.

Thanks in advance for your help, we really need it...Clyde Blake (AKA) Hat80

Dear Mr. Mayor,

We the following will boycott the public pier, beach and all business in North Beach Maryland if and when the town of North Beach starts closing the public pier from 11:00 pm to 6:00 am, or any other hours. We will tell all our fishing friends and their families to do the same.

Furthermore we who possess a season pass want all paid monies refunded because the passes were bought before the public pier closing issue was brought up.

The town of North Beach Maryland is breaking the contract entered here into. The public beach and pier passes were bought with the knowledge that the entitled have the right to fish or use the beach 24/7 during the year.

It’s no secret the town of North Beach is more than 2.5 million dollars in the red. This boycott will have serious impact on the economic situation of the merchants and business in your town.

We would ask that you postpone the July 1st closing of the pier and look at an alternate solution. Closing the pier to night time fishing is not the answer to your problems...Thank You

How about a P&S get together at the pier? Never fished it and will have to get a pass (where and how much), but if we could arrange something in the evening, might be a fun get along.

It ain't just about the fish.

Hey Hat, talk is cheap and email is easy, but look at the clean-up Choptank thread. Everybody says they want to help, but only those in the minority do (you can't even determine how many will be there). I will just show up at the "Tank" out of spite (maybe too strong of a word but, I'm pissed), only fished it twice, I'll bring grills, I'll see if either of my daughters want to join and see just how many show. If they do decide to close the pier, then everyone will know why, and they won't have a reason to complain. But, on the other hand, I got to say, I'm looking forward to AI this fall, where if you talk the talk, you walk the walk. Gave it a shot, hopefully more will help at the Tank then NBP, and if not sorry Sand flea, it ain't just about fishing, it's about standing behind what you say and believe in.......:mad:
