Swap Meet


Recommended Posts

In out sucks for fishing.  Leaving your gear out all night and having them put it away the next morning.  Or conversely leaving it out all night and picking it up the next morning.  If it's there when you show up at 5am with your crew.  Yep, drive 40  minutes to wait until 8am to be told "we did not have room to drop it last night".  Mine came with a year of in out paid in full; I used that time to rebuild the trailer and was done with that by July.

Thanks to you and your capable crew for putting this event on. Things were well organized as I knew they would be. Meeting up with old friends and making some new ones is the best reason to attend. The weather slowed us down on the trip over but it was well worth the effort. We had smooth sailing going home.

Thanks to everyone that showed up yesterday. We had a great turnout and things went smoothly with all the help from the youth,  my family and friends. 

All the money raised is going to cover some of the cost of our youth going to Honduras to help those less fortunate. And we thank you all for that.

We hope to continue to do this for years to come, we are looking to push the date back into February to stay away from the other things that are going on at the same time. Also we are looking for input on things we can do better, to bring in more people and to keep people there longer.

Please email me with your ideas and I will start putting them in a file for next year.

Thanks again
