MSA 60th Annual Boston Dinner
Please join the MSA at the Miramichi Salmon Association’s 60th Annual Boston Dinner and Symposium on Saturday February 1st, 2014. This year they will celebrate the MSA capital campaign, “Campaign 60”, and honour its leaders, Manley Price and Bud Bird. The Boston Dinner generates operating funds essential for the MSA to meet its conservation goals, and is their only U.S. fundraising event. On Saturday afternoon, before the event, guests can attend the Symposium and receive updates about angling, and conservation efforts on the Miramichi and other important angling topics. The event will again be held at the Marriott in Burlington, Massachusetts (near Boston).

First Cast MSA
The Fifth Annual First Cast MSA program will be held on June 28-29 at the Atlantic Salmon Museum in Doaktown. It’s an outstanding, totally free two-day event that matches newcomers with mentors, bringing new individuals to the MSA cause. Participants learn about salmon conservation and fly-fishing, and spend a full day of supervised fishing on the Miramichi.
Please help support First Cast MSA by bringing donations of serviceable salmon tackle to the Boston Dinner and/or by signing-up to participate at the event this summer.
Giv’er Miramichi is about “What’s up, what’s new, what’s happening”. We are focused on building people up, supporting one another and celebrating our successes.
