OK, here's a fun idea.... I've a friend who does charter fishing on Martha's Vineyard. He has plenty of friends and Captains to take as many of us as we want.
We fly to KMVY in the morning and get ourselves to the docks.
Let's book them for a half day trip. Starting at 12:30 - 5:00. Cost per boat is $700, or $125 each. Everyone gets to fish at the same time and everything's provided. These are first class operations.
A deposit is required of half per boat to reserve the dates. $350.00. I'll need RSVP's and to collect half your monies by end of THIS WEEK to book the boats. $65 per person. RSVP's can be traded or changed among us, as long as we don't mess up the Captains.
Sounds like some betting and bragging rights from the FPA could be had.

Buddy knows where the fish are at!
