Hello All!

Ahhhhhhhhh the NJ Blow Boater Comm.......I mean NJ Recreatioinal Boating Commission...... just kidding!

We walked away from today's meeting feeling good about the meeting but also understanding that we have a long way to go.

Some positive points about the meeting:
* Everyone respected each other's opinions
* the commission members listened well
* we were armed to the hilt with letters and statistics
* only 1 tree hugger showed up
* no one lost their cool
* the commission admitted that they learned alot from our remarks, suggestions and factual data
* overall a very constructive meeting

Roger Brown openly admitted that the proposed speed limit is not the primary result of the tragedies that occurred this summer but because of complaints lodged this summer by Yacht Clubs and a few residents that live on the Metedeconk River (i.e. Mr. Verizon and his 17,000 sq ft yellow house).

The next step - the commission will review all of the facts, comments and suggestions that were made to them today. The have their next meeting in early January and we plan on attending to continue the fight. (the commission did not have any statistics to support their position - we did for ours! )

Now we move on the the Legislative front in Trenton where they are considering the same topic.

Keep the support flowing in the form of letters and we will keep everyone updated on our progress!

Dave, you know your being overly polite.

One things for sure, they were not concerned about boating safety. Can you say Hidden Agenda????????

Folks, send in your dues early to NJPPC as they are taking the bull by the horns on this one.

Be careful...that is exactly how they may want you to feel
You have to consider the fact that these people are no dumbies , and just when you leave your guard down , is when you get the knife between the sixth and seventh vertebra.
Another point...Yacht clubs and a few residents on the Metedeconk river complain and they're going to impose statewide speed limit
Either they have one HELL of a LOTTA pull or the commission is simply trying to leave you with a warm and fuzzy feeling. Why not institute a speed limit or no wake zone in that area. That was done in Cape May harbor a few years back.
Me thinks they're not being totally truthful But then our politicos wouldn't do something like that , would they
