Just wanted to put in a plug for the Joppa Flats DU Banquet, which will be held on Friday, February 1 at the Elks Hall in Newburyport. We had a skeleton crew this year, but the dinner is shaping up nicely. We will once again have the MoMarsh duck boat in the sponsor raffle, along with a nice duck gun, LL Bean gift card, a custom made striper rod w/Penn spinning reel, and other prizes. I am really looking forward to the banquet this year, and hope to see you there. Mary's Catering will be feeding us again this year, so skip breakfast and lunch and come hungry! Tons of food.
Good friends, great prizes, and a great cause. We will also be remembering our dear friend, Jim White. Jim passed away this last fall. He was a good guy who helped New England DU raise a lot of money for the ducks and wetlands conservation.

Moderator, could you leave this announcement on the main page for a day or two, and then move it up to the Ducks Unlimited page?
