About Assateague Mobile Sportsfishermen Association, Inc. (AMSA)

The Following article was taken from an unknown publisher on Dec. 30, 1965

AMSA Spring Beach Clean-Up 2017 | Assateague Mobile Sportsfishermen Association Inc (AMSA)“A group of ardent fishermen, hunters and outdoor lovers has formed the Assateague Beach Buggy Association, the aims of which are to “join in the formal organization all persons interested in the natural beach resources of the state, and to work as an instrument to secure acceptance of certain beach rules which will benefit the sport of beach buggying and saltwater Fishing.

A membership drive is now under way and acting ABBA President Roland Wainwright presents the first membership card to Bill Scott of Berlin, an old-time and ardent beach buggier.

“There are probably a thousand beach buggy owners in the Berlin and Ocean City area”, said Wainwrite, “and we want to mold these into an organization that can get something done in the way of beach preservation and proper conservation of the waters, beaches and marine sport of this part of the state.

The formation of this organization takes on added significance with the arrival here of government agencies to acquire certain portions of Assateague and with the opening of the headquarters of the park superintendent, Burt Roberts.

Initiation fee and dues total $7.00 a year.

Among the benefits of belonging to the organization is that aid will be offered to any fishermen or beach buggy when he is in trouble, and to “fill up holes after becoming stuck.” Over crowding of fishing areas is also discouraged, so that anglers without beach buggy’s will be protected. All those who want to benefit joining this organization are asked to see or contact Roland Wainwrite or Bill Scott

Changes Since 1965

There have been many adaptations and changes to improve our non-profit organization since 1965. Our membership has grown tremendously and Assateague remains beautiful and maintained to this day. The AMSA still holds the same core values today that they did back in 1965 with many improvements to adapt to new laws and regulations. We are very active in our local community and host many events including an annual Camporee, Fishing Tournament, Take a Kid Fishing, & Beach Clean ups throughout the year.

We have also taken on a more proactive legislative role as we feel we must in order to preserve our rights to beach access for all and maintain our code of ethics. We have partnered with the
National Park service to aid and support Assateague Island in any way that is not a conflict of interest. As well as made numerous trips to Washington, DC to meet with members of congress in the interest of the General Management plan for Assateague Island.
