2009 Point Lookout Holiday Pint Fling        

The Striper Surf Club would like to thank everyone who attended the end of the season "2009 Point Lookout Holiday Pint Fling" held at Alice's / Capt. Joe's Anchor Inn, December 4, 2009.  The 2009 Point Lookout Holiday Pint Fling was a big success. The NY surf fishing community helped raise $1000 for the Kurt W. Stokes Memorial Trust. Mrs. Stokes and her children were present at the Pint Fling and she thanked everyone for their overwhelming generosity this Holiday season.

We would also like to thank all those surfcasters and friends who came out and brought a toy or two for the LIBBA Operation Holiday Spirit. And to “Bayside” Arty and his wife for their generous donation of 200 pairs of new children shoes for the needy and the dozen blue frog bucktails.

Many other sponsors of the Pint Fling include: The Long Island Outdoorsman located on Sunrise Highway in Rockville Centre, Zeno Hromin for his photo and book donations, John Niedzielski of J.N-SKI Custom Plugs, Jim Kerrigan of the Gateway Striper, Leslie Burleigh and Peter Jordan for their plug donation, the Mid Island Surfcasters club plug donation, Wille Young of the Montauk Surfcaster Association, Steve and Don Musso of Super Strike Lures, Armand of Rhode Island poppers and members of the Striper Surf Club. If I left anyone out please let me know.

Have a Happy and a Healthy Holiday Season santa
