North Carolina Beach Buggy Association

 

 

 The North Carolina Beach Buggy Association is a non-profit organization established in 1964, dedicated to the preservation of and vehicular access to the natural beach resources of the Outer Banks through conservation, a code of ethics for beach behavior and support of local, state and federal officials and other organizations dedicated to these same goals.

 

The Association has grown over the years from a small group of dedicated individuals to over 3800 members in forty some states and Canada. All members subscribe to a strict code of ethics for beach behavior.

 

Our main focus is to work to insure that all people have pedestrian and vehicular access to the beaches of the Seashore Recreation Area as intended by the enabling legislation. The full legal name of the Seashore is “Cape Hatteras National Seashore Recreation Area”. That name was chosen by the National Park Service to distinguish it from a National Park.

 

A program called Operation Beach Respect was started in 1985 and has continued for thirty years. This Program consists of beach cleanups four times a year in conjunction with the National Park Service. An Adopt A Highway program was added a couple of years later.

 

Working with the National Park Service and the Dare County Crime Line the Association has offered rewards for information leading to the conviction of persons responsible for damage to Beaches, vegetation, dunes, wildlife and facilities in the Seashore.

 

The Association sponsors a Red Drum Tournament each year which is open to members and guest if openings are available. It is is our major fund raiser and is a fun time for all.

 

Over the years we have contributed to various projects on the seashore such as signage, ramp construction and repairs and various resource management plans and studies in cooperation with the National Park Service.

 

Our civic activities include a scholarship program which provides a 4 year scholarship to a graduating senior from each of the high schools on the Outer Banks.

 

We help with disaster relief and provide help to those in need through appropriate local organizations. We co-sponsor a youth fishing tournament and encourage the leaders of tomorrow to get outside and get involved.


In addition to the programs listed above members receive a quarterly news letter, electronic updates on the latest issues, fishing news, fishing citations, NCBBA apparel, a photo contest and a member discount program for purchases made at participating tackle shops and merchants on the Outer Banks.

 

The Board of Directors meets Quarterly and the Association’s Annual Meeting is held at the end of May each year.

 

Membership is open to all who support our mission statement and agree to abide by our code of ethics. You may join by completing an online application on this website.
