Thank You Tiki BarSonney Forrest
The Captains of the Solomons Charter Captains Association (SCCA) would like to publicly thank The Tiki Bar owners and staff for supporting its neighbors of Solomons. This past year Joe Kurley, General Manager for The Tiki Bar, again worked with the SCCA in hosting their Halloween Party, “Lost on Tiki Island”. With his management skills and our support we were able to have the biggest party yet. Over 350 people attended, some coming from as far as Virginia to attend. There were some unbelievable costumes that won great prizes. The food was excellent and the oysters were a big hit. The event raised more than $7,500 for the SCCA to promote charter fishing in Solomons in 2011.
The Tiki Bar has always recognized the independent charter boat businesses and the SCCA as a valuable asset to Solomons and the economical impact they have on Tourism for this area. One charter boat in a season can bring over 600 people to the area to fish, eat and drink locally, stay overnight and bring back more people. With over 40 boats in this harbor that is 24,000 tourists a season and more. With the hard and difficult economical times many captains experienced this past season, they look to generate new interest in charter fishing and experiencing all that the beautiful Chesapeake Bay and Solomons has to offer.
