I lived on Westover AFB, went to Bellamy JH and then half a year at Chicopee Comp., before moving. My brother and i used to ride our bikes out to the base lake by the gofl course.....had a ball fishing there, you name it, we caught it out of there. I stopped by there this summer for the first time in about 30 years on my way back home from boston. It's really changed, the lake looked awful.....brought back a lot of great memories though......

Could it be the Westfield. I hear you wanted some BoSox tix. I went up there last year and saw the 10.000 HR hit, also the 9.999 and the 10.001

Feway is a very nice ballpark, seat arent friendly, but youll have a blast, here I am 15 tellign you about it, im sure youve been to many games in your day

It was the Westfield...........I was able to get my hands on some tix this past summer when I was up there(the concierge @S. Station)..........took my 11 year old son. He's a big baseball fan, it was his 1st trip to Fenway........I've been there a few times, my 1st being in 1975. Great stadium! it was a lot of fun.

Yeah, I've been looking for some spots in massachusetts...Probably some of them up your way. I posted in here maybe a month ago, and Dfix was kind enough to help me, so search that post. I plan on trying all of them when there isn't 3 friggin feet of snow on the ground. I'm 16 and reside in North Attleboro, we should hit up some places, as I don't know anyone besides my father who is even remotely interested in fy fishing.

Cheers
