OK, I know that some of you have been thinking of joining, but just were not sure, or keep putting off coming to a meeting. SO….. here are some reasons to join, and now is as good as any time to join.
It is the best value for your money you will get around here. First it is dirt cheep to belong to our club. Individual membership is only $40.00 / Year, and a family membership is only $50.00 / Year. That is for a FULL YEAR! There is a one time $25.00 initiation fee.
Here are some of the benefits:
For your $40.00 or $50.00 per YEAR, you get:
1 – 24 FREE meals for you and your family or any friends you bring to a club meeting.
2 – Your Membership card is good for 10% to 15% off your purchases at several of our local bait, tackle and boating shops around Jacksonville. ( Just pull it out and ask! ) Plus membership rights in the Jax Navy Federal Credit Union.
3 – You can always find someone that will help pay for gas & bait and go fishing with you.
4 – You will benefit from the security of having fellow members to call on in case of an emergency.
5 – You can find help working on your boat from several members.
6 – You will benefit from programs and seminars that bring fishing knowledge from area experts, revealing secrets they share only with JOSFC members.
7 – When you post a fish to the boards you get a $5.00 fish slip to spend at local bait & tackle shops or for club merchandise. Post 10 fish, and you have been paid back for your dues!
8 – You will be able to participate in a challenging and rewarding slate of tournaments open only to club members.
9 – You get a chance to win a board at the end of the year and get plaques and cretificates to show off your fishing skills.
10 – You will be able to help maintain and enhance the most prolific artificial reef program in the U.S. ( Over 270 drops in the Club’s 52 years )
11 – Last but not least, the CLUB is constantly fighting for your right to fish, and the more members we can say we represent when we get up to testify the louder our voice is to the SAMFC.
( This year we actually got a club member elected to the SAMFC Council! )
