Subject: Volunteers Needed for Striped Bass Fishing Tournaments on Chesapeake

Every year, the Maryland Saltwater Sportfishing Association (MSSA) hosts two
of the world’s largest striped bass fishing tournaments on the Chesapeake
Bay.  These two tournaments take place in May (The Championship) and November
(The Fall Classic).  MSSA has been hosting these tournaments for 33 years and
both are recognized and sanctioned by the Maryland Department of Natural
Resources (DNR).  These tournaments help us in our mission to enhance
recreational fisheries and provide a voice for recreational anglers.

Hosting these tournaments requires a coordinated effort from all 12 of the
check-in stations throughout the Chesapeake Bay.  We offer interested
students an opportunity to work a check-in station throughout the tournaments
and gain firsthand experience.

MSSA needs:
-	Students interested in biology
-	Tech savvy(iPad or tablet) and understanding of basic scale operation
-	Two students per check-in station (24 total – we are requesting students
from numerous colleges)
-	Check-in stations are open Friday-Sunday from noon – 4:30PM
o	The Championship – April 29-May 1
o	The Fall Classic – November 18-20

MSSA provides:
-	Training and education on skills needed to work the check-in station
-	Hands on experience with field work, data collection, and technology
-	All expenses paid (mileage, lodging, and food)
