What fun the surfing event was. We had a lot of people, kids, and some great food. We took a group photo which included most of us. Some were still on the beach… Norm, of course, caught most of the fish and even let some of the kids reel them in. Curt caught a nice looking white perch. Of course, our president got skunked (must have been the bait).
Our Speaker for May will be Jim Holden

The Friends of Rollo is a non-profit educational organization named after Captain James “Rollo” Heyn of the long-range sportfishing boat Royal Polaris and dedicated to sending kids on marine-awareness fishing trips. Rollo was famous for his fishing skills and his life-long passion for the sport. As a youngster, Rollo worked in a tackle shop after school and on weekends, and then as a charter boat cook and deckhand during his teen years. He spent 18 years as a crew-member aboard the Royal Polaris where his reputation as a skilled angler and patient teacher grew. Rollo’s extensive knowledge of and tremendous sense of enthusiasm for the fishing industry earned him a special place in the hearts of those who knew him. It is in Rollo’s memory that the Friends of Rollo seeks to introduce children to the wonderful world of fishing that Rollo so loved.
We are planning a club picnic on Saturday May 16th from 10 to 3 by the Bahia Hotel on Mission Bay. As you turn in the Bahia hotel parking lot, we will be on the right. Alex will start set up at 9am (Just look for the SDRRC banners). He plans on bringing his trailer over the night before. The club will BBQ hamburgers and hot dogs, and will bring soda/water. It will be a pot luck style picnic, so bring your favorite dish. Bring the kids and fishing rods, it is right next to the water and we should have a blast. We will bring a soccer ball, and others will bring other recreational activities.
