The grassroots New Jersey Outdoor Alliance mission involves stewardship of the state's environment while championing fishing, hunting and trapping among policy leaders, opinion makers and the public. They have an online legislative action format from which anyone can participate, and I suggest you go to http://capwiz.com/njoutdooralliance/home/ and before you finish reading, click on and read the Chairman's message to get an idea of how politically effective as NJ outdoor participants we are.
And NJOA serves great food, an opportunity like I've never seen before.
On Sunday, March 13th, beginning at 4:00 pm, the Aichem family of chefs at the Black Forest Inn, 249 U.S. Highway 206 in Stanhope, is serving NJOA a feast of venison, wild boar, pheasant, turkey, freshly caught fish and more. This is an opportunity to meet pro-outdoors state legislators, officials from NJ hunting, fishing and pro-outdoors organizations which comprise NJOA Conservation Foundation, and to support the NJOA grassroots effort. Tickets stand at $100.00 per person.
Chris Lido sent us information, and I wrote back that I was thinking of coming. "Bruce, the food alone is worth more than the price," he wrote back. I told him I agree, but we're going to wait until next year--and I hope this event is hosted again--since, well, the economy just isn't as good as MSNBC sometimes makes it seem.
