THE SHORT REPORT - ST. THOMAS - REFRESH (F5) OFTEN
We want to let friends of Curt Scott know that he has passed. Curt was one of the pioneers in land development here in the VI and is known for the sub-divide "Scott Free" which overlooks the western harbor area of St. Thomas. We remember a time when Curt owned a trunk cabin Andy Mortenson named "Scott Free" which was often seen on the North and South drops. Curt was also an early member of the Virgin Islands Game Fishing Club (VIGFC). Wife Barbara and daughter Stacy were at Curt's side during his battle with cancer.

Contestants, we are needing to purchase t-shirts, reserve rooms for the observers, order prizes and put down a hotel deposit for the awards banquet. We ask those who will be fishing the 2015 ABMT "Boy Scout" (Aug. 26-30) to send us a $2000 tournament deposit. Make checks out to: Community Foundation of the Virgin Islands (501c3 non-profit). Be sure to put "Tournament Deposit for _ _ _ _ (boat name) on the sub-line. Send to: ABMT, 6616 Estate Nadir, St. Thomas, VI. If for some reason you are unable to fish the tournament... we'll return your deposit. If you are planning on fishing the 'BVI Open' (Aug. 1-3, 2015) we would also like to hear from you regarding your intent to fish that event.
We are busy distributing 'ON THE EDGE' magazines and we are also happy to announce that our 2015 MVP 'Learn to Swim' lessons have started at the STSA pool. We are now serving the kids of the Boy Scouts, Boys and Girls Club and My Brothers Workshop. The earnings of the magazine and our tournaments along with private donations help to support the cost of the lessons. Our fishing friends in the marine industry are invited to help us grow the program. See the MVP's webpage at: Here
We are marketing our summer 2015 'Live the Dream' adventure being planned for center console owners. Presently we are negotiating group rates with the shipping lines and discussing the offering of discounted rates by the marinas and hotels. We believe there will be an interest in this project if it can be turned into a simple "roll on, roll off" experience for the vessel owners. Our 45 miles of beautiful islands to explore and abundant blue marlin resource is the what we are promoting!
Center console owners... let us know if you are interested by calling us at 340-775-9500. Or email us: E-Mail Us! Plans are to ship the vessels for a 3 month period (July - Oct.).

"I fished for 20 years with Capt. Skip Smith, he is the absolute best at running a boat. Roy Merritt also fishes with us a lot. There is definitely nothing more fun than having Roy and Skip in the same cockpit."
