MAD Chas 2016 - Operation "Sandspike"

thank you “cart captains” for your support.

I have found transportation for 6 “cart captains” and troops this year to Morris Island aboard the “Island Scout”. Captain Howie’s runs Adventure Harbor Tours out of Ripley Marina. he wanted to help last year but didn’t know how.

just as on boats, the cart captains will need to attend the captain’s meeting in order to pickup the " fishing license waiver" issued by DNR.

I realize that our event Nov. 12 is a few months away, but planning has started.

if you any questions, shoot me a message…

thank you again for supporting our Troops.

Mr. Morrison, thank you for giving us the opportunity to get involved and to take the troops fishing, they deserve a day of fun. You can absolutely count me in on this fishing expedition it sounds like allot of fun and Im willing to help in any way I can. Thanks, Pete.

Count me in as well. Hope to provide the guys with some quality fishing in the sand and sun!

A barrier Island…in November…in the low country? Could be very fun.

Can hardly wait! Feels good to be able to contribute.

And from me also, thanks Mr. Morrison for the opportunity.

“There’s a fine line between fishing and standing in the surf like an idiot.”

That’s pretty cool guys! If I wasn’t still learning myself I’d be up for it :slight_smile: have fun gents!

Papa a good heart and a good attitude goes a long way. They are looking for dedicated ,responsible folks that want to show the troops a good time. If this is something your interested in, I suggest you pursue it. You may just surprise yourself, don’t sell yourself short.:smiley:

^^^^^^ Roger that x10 Pete !^^^^^^^

“Pier Captains” now needed for Mt. Pleasant & Folly Piers.

CCPRC will let a paying “Pier Captain” bring Troops without paying. we will probably assign 2 troops per “Pier Captain”. the Troops will have a fishing license waiver, so don’t worry about that.

i will re-post about this closer to event time (Nov. 12).

please go to our web site for more info:
thank you for supporting the military Troops.

glad to see good surf fishing reports. we’ll be opening captain registration soon (by the end of the month).

we may be able to get 10 cart captains to Morris Island on the “Charleston Explorer”.

don’t forget, you’ll need to attend the Captains meeting Nov. 11 to pick up the fishing license waiver for the troops.

thank you for your support.

I am going to be out of town that weekend, but can lend my beach cart and surf rods, reels, if they are needed.

Hey, I’m willing to help out also. So just let me know what it is, cart captain, bait man, I have gear.

I will say all I can contribute as a captain or helper of any sort is three rods. But they can handle basically any fish hall get on them from the surf
