If any LICON members are interested in a book signing or seminar opportunity at the Suffolk County Boat and Sportfishing Show at Suffolk Community College (Brentwood Campus) please get in touch with Fred Golofaro at The Fisherman. The show is in late February and will also be the venue for our awards ceremony for the Youth essay Writing Contest.

LIOCN member Zeno Hromin has released a new on-line magazine - Surfcaster's Journal. Congratulations go out to Zeno and his team for a job well done. The E-zine is very much worth a thorough read - very nice images and visuals and some solid editorial text. It appears that the magazine will be produced seasonally each quarter. The current issue also includes a nice photo essay by another LIOCN member, Richard Siberry. You can visit the magazine at www.surfcastersjournal.com. AP

Thanks go out to the judges of the 2009 Youth Essay Contest. The process is complete and winners have been selected in each of the five categories. All that remains is the selection of the grand prize winner. The winning entries will be announced shortly followed by an awards ceremony. But in the interim, thank you to the following LIOCN member who assisted me in the final judging: Doc Muller, Bob Banfelder, Donna Derasmo, Fred Golofaro and Joel Lucks. My personal thanks for very objective and effective judging. AP
