Boating and Fishing Club:  What is the Boating & Fishing Club? It’s a social club that started out years ago and has kept its original name. However, it has nothing to do with or about boating or fishing. The objective of the club is to keep everyone informed of activities in Briny. Our members get together at our meetings to socialize, have free coffee, donuts or muffins and get to know each other. Looking forward to meeting the many people who have moved into our community as buyers or renters, and very happy to see all our repeat members back with us. If you have any questions about joining the Boating & Fishing Club, ask the front office for a form to join, or just look in the Bugle for the meeting date and you can join our next meeting. 

Everyone is welcome to join; membership is $4.00, and guests and children are free to come to a meeting and have a great time with their friends and neighbors
