RSVP for Men's Fishing Trip by April 15


Ahoy, men of Immanuel Church-on-the-Hill!  The date of this year’s Annual Immanuel Men’s Group’s rock fishing expedition is Friday, May 6th

As in the past, our fishing boat(s) will be departing that morning at sunup from Deale, Maryland (about one hour from D.C./Alexandria).  Also as in the past, we’ll be gathering the evening before (Thursday, May 5th) at the Herrington Harbour Inn (located nearby the boat launch site) for our traditional “manly meal” and a good night’s sleep.  For those planning to car pool, we generally leave the Zabriskie parking lot at about 5:15 p.m. on Thursday and arrive at the Inn well before 7:00 p.m.  You should all be back in Alexandria by 4:00 p.m. on Friday. 

Please let me know by email by Friday, April 15 whether you plan to join us.

The shared cost per man for last year's fishing trip was approximately $180.00 (does not include the rooms at the Inn, which should be about $75 per man).  Scholarship funds are available.

Over the years, I think upwards of 100 "Gentlemen of ICOH" have made the trip at least once.  I would particularly encourage those who may be new or who, for whatever reason, have not joined us in the past to think about signing on this year.  No experience or particular skill necessary.  It is a great way to get to know one another better -- and it requires only one evening and one day out of your schedule.  It is also possible we may actually catch some fish (we got a boatload last year). 

If you have questions, you can contact me by e-mail, phone or in person at Church.  My home phone number is 703-751-9238, cell is 202--412-2138, and my e-mail address is djohn@jhenergy.com.  -- Doug John
