WOW a year has past so fast, Last August 29th My mother-in-laws birthday.My brother-in-laws was painting his rental apartment when something terrible happened. Robert is a single Dad raising his son the best he can on Long Island. Just making it and finally able to buy a house for him and his son. He was so Proud of what he was able to accomplish. Well that night in August he was painting and his son was watching TV Robert Fell down the stairs and passed away 14 days later. Robert was only 47 and his son is 12 years old. Now a year later and we have seen his son very little after seeing them every weekend. His son now lives with his Mom.

So this is where I look to all. Robert was a fishermen and I only wish that he had come with me that night when I stoped by his house to get the crap net. Things could be different today,but not so. I want to start a fishing classic in his name and proceeds would help his son.

I want to have a blackfishing trip Close to Roberts Birthday in Oct.
all are welcome and we need to pick a boat. Celtic Quest is the one I'm thinking of simple because it is the northshore were we all fished.

How would I set up the the trip?
Do I supply Food and soda?
No Beer Kids will be part of the trip?
Do I have a raffle?
Will the boat help me set this up?

Any suggestions on setting this up.

1. Pick a date and stick to it. Try to avoid conflicts with other
Nor'east Charters.

2. Find a boat that with availability on the chosen date. There are
several sponsors of Nor'east that can meet your needs.

3. Raffles work. 50/50 Raffles are simple to put together, and
will yield profits. A 50/50 pool will also earn $$$

4. Post your charter on the Charter board on this site, with very
specific details about the breakdown of price. (fare, pool,
raffles, etc...)

At this late of date, it may be tough to get your 1st choice of vessel, nevertheless, it's still worth a shot.

PS- as far as food goes, if I were the chartermaster I'd stay away from it. Have the group compile a food/drink list. It will make your life much easier.
