A Letter From The Commodore

Dear OCMTC Club Members,

     Yes it is only mid-winter, but I’m sure many of you are already looking forward to the upcoming summer at the Jersey Shore.  And the OCMTC Board is already planning the tournaments and social events for the 2017 season.  We are sending out a schedule early this year to encourage you to mark your calendar, and hope that you and your family will participate in as many social functions and tournaments as possible.  Please note that this is a schedule of the events to date.  Additional social events and tournaments may still be scheduled as our plans progress.  In addition, please make a special note to “save the date” to participate in the OCMTC Overnight Billfish Tournament on August 13th thru August 20th.  This years’ event is the 40th Anniversary of our signature event.

     I would also like to ask you to encourage your friends and neighbors to consider joining the OCMTC.  For over 57 years, the strength of our club has been our members and their families.  Whether your passion is offshore fishing, or just flounder fishing the back bays, the OCMTC has tournaments and social events that encourage fun on the water, friendly competition, and most of all family participation.

     On our Membership Page, please find your 2017 Registration.  Please follow the directions on the form, and either send your registration via email, or mail the registration to the address listed.  Be sure to fill out your registration completely, including your e-mail so that you will be included in important OCMTC announcements and communications.  And please register by April 30th to be included in the Club Directory, and help our Committee volunteers properly plan for the 2017 season.  Lastly, please consider joining a Committee to help your fellow members make the upcoming season another great year for the Ocean City Marlin and Tuna Club.   Come on Summer!

Best Regards,

Ron Gallagher
