At several of the last Board meetings the need for a dues increase was discussed. It is obvious that $15.00 is a real bargain for Club membership. While there was no decision made as to whether or not raise the dues the Board decided the membership should be consulted. In order to do that, there will be a discussion on raising dues at the March DMS meeting at the Frankford Volunteer Fire Company Hall on March 6, 2014.
If you cannot make the meeting you can comment by email, with the tagline “DMS DUES INCREASE” at email@example.com

DNREC is seeking input via a survey on the Delaware Bayshore Initiative, which, in DNREC’s words “…build on the region’s reputation as a unique and beautiful natural resource, and help improve the shoreline economy by encouraging … visitors to enjoy it through activities such as recreational fishing, hunting, boating and ecotourism.” Included in the Initiative area are popular - and currently accessible to the public - fishing and hunting locales, such as Cape Henlopen State Park (including Broadkill Access), Augustine Beach, the Prime Hook and Bombay Hook National Wildlife Reserves, to name a few. These areas have a strong and rich tradition of use by anglers and hunters.
Take the survey (included in the first link) and let DNREC know what you believe is best for you, the angler.
