Need Boaters to sign up ASAP


Recommended Posts

We are now starting to contact boaters to commit to June 18-19 at Veterans Park Bay City, MI to accommodate a couple Vets for a few hrs of fishing on the 19th. On the 18th in the afternoon we will have the registration and “Captains Meetingâ€. At the same time we will not only match up the Boater with the Vets they will take out but they can meet each other and discuss matters at hand. Please get your name and info to me as soon as you can. The number of boaters of course will determine how many Vets we can invite. About 70 boats is our goal. If we go over that great, means we can invite more Vets.

Some of you may belong to a fishing group or clubs around the state. If so would YOU please help us by spreading the word about this event to them. Even email this message around to buddies, groups and clubs. Fliers will be available very soon. If someone hasn’t heard about the event Google in Walleyes for Warriors or call me Nels Larsen 989 837 2681. Leave a message on recorder if I am not by the phone.

I would like to have the boaters send me an email with your full name, address, phone number where I can contact you as well as an email if you have one. After your name in parenthesis put Boater or tentative Boater

I know Frank. My wife told me that also but only 2 others said anything about it. I told her that one missed fathers day taking out a Vet that did so much for everyone of us isn't to much to ask. There were so many things to work around such as tournaments going on and other things. I wanted to pick a date early June so we could catch fish closer in. We will just have to hope for the best. The event is sure for a good cause. I guarentee that anyone who takes part in this event spending time with the Vets will be touched in a special way. Nels:thumb:

Thanks Dave for signing up. You will honestly be touched by spending a day with a couple of these Vets. They sure will appreciate you for doing it for them. We need more boaters but am sure they will come. :thumb: Nels
