At Tuesdays open house event, we were advised that the North Myrtle Beach Police Division made a substantial donation of fishing rod & reels to the SCDNR Saltwater Fishing Instructors Program.   This all came about because on Saturday, October 2, 2021, Ed Skowysz, Skip Lisle, Brad Schenk and David Rapp SCDNR Fishing Instructors & GSSAA members worked the North Myrtle Beach Safety Forces, "Take-A-Kid Fishing".  This donation will allow us to use the rod and reels for teaching purposes.
