Fishing For Friends

Discussion in 'The Lounge' started by bubbahunter, Apr 6, 2004.

  1. Well as many of you know this years outing will be held June 5th. at Grand lake st. marys from 8am. till 1pm.This is a special needs outing just to get some of these folks out and to enjoy a day of fishing.last year was a great success. we had 26 kids and adults attend with about 30 volenteers.we are hoping to get around 40 folks signed up this year. so far we have 11 signed up with ages between 7 and 64.this year eveyone will recieve a medalion with a red ,white and blue ribbon. i`ll try to post a pic of it later.i have recieved donations from several members and alot more are going to bring and send door prizes. thank you to everyone for helping me do this.we could use some more help to help finish this up. if anyone would like to donate anything i`ll give my info at the botton of this thread.

    we will provide a continental breakfast to get things started and lunch to help round out the day.after lunch we`ll give out awards and door prizes with a few special awards going to biggest fish,smallest fish, most fish caught,and the most fun award. we`ll keep it going as long as anyone wants to fish. this thing could go on all day if they had their way.

    thanks,
    Bub

    You know I'll be there. Tell your wife I don't like continental breakfast. So, I like my eggs over easy,3 of them will do. Maybe a pound of bacon, hash browns, biscuits and gravy. Oh yeah, sausage patties too. And coffee with cream and sugar, maybe some o.j., freshly squeezed. Sounds good. Thanks

    Please keep Bryan away from the kids, you want them to maybe catch a fish!
     
  12. I think we`ll put Bryan on trash patrol, that way he can`t taint the bait or the fishin hole. lol

    Count me in. I tried awile back to get one started at americana and it fell through. But I would consider it a honor to help out. I dont know if you contacted zebco? But they were very helpfull and sent me special prices on fishing rods and reels. At the time they offerd me a chance to buy 100 z-glass rods with 202 reels loaded with fishing line for around a $1000. They even sent me 2 (Take a kid fishing banners) And all of this was done through there web site. One more thing sams/walmart loves to help out on things like this. Take your pics from last year to the store manager and ask him/her for maybe pop/hot dog/hamburger donations. If they wont help you up there. I know the local Sams down here will help. Its nice to have a wife that has work there for 15 years. So let me know. But If the date changes let me know and I will have to switch days with someone. I have off Fridays and Saturdays. And if somthing happens and I cant come I will send someone some King Island passes to be given to the winner/winners. Keep up the hard work. There are some kids out there that needs a smile put back on there faces.

    I'm really looking forward to this event. The award looks great Bubba !! And by all means, keep H2OMellon on trash patrol :D See ya all there. CATKING.
     
  17. Chris,Rick thanks guys i think there pretty cool myself.i think we better keep an eye on Bryan he may try to claim one of the fish as his own.lol did you guys see the picture of him last year holding the goodie bags? he looked so "cute".lol sorry buddy just had to remind you.

    Gunner-thanks for the help. i sent out letters to all the major tackel companies so hopefully we`ll get afew goodies.PM me your Phone # and i`ll fill you in on our wal-mart up here. i don`t think we`ll be going to them for anything, but if you can get anything from sam`s that would be great. the Kings Island passes would be just to cool some of the kids have DR. bills so high that this may be the only chance to get to go.i`m sure that will be a true high lite for them .

    thanks guys and look forward to seeing eveyone,

    Bub
