With the 2018 event coming to a close, we would like to thank everyone that participated, donated, sponsored, or even just showed up to support the event.
We doubled the signups for both veterans and captains from last year and we needed every single one of you to make sure this event has become what it is. We also need to put a shout out to all our sponsors this year, big and small, because without all of your donations, monetarily and otherwise, this would just be another fishing trip, all of sponsors and donors help us take the event to another level that I feel really drives the point home we love and care about our veterans.
Extra special shout out to the American Legion post 568, auxiliary, and sons, Whirlpool, Mary from The Diet Center of St. Joseph, Pier 1000, and Veterans United Foundation for your unselfish donation and dedication to all that have worn the uniform both in peace time and at war. We appreciate your support and thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
To Jim Marohn, Coho Bob Lausman, Ryan McCartney, Thumper, Stacey Shaffer, Phil Schuman, Mike Bryant, Eric Conder, Reed Mann
If it weren't for your support, help, and dedication to this event, I wouldn't have much to look forward to each year, I want to thank you all for taking my idea and making grow beyond my wildest dreams and control. It really means a lot and I look forward to working with all of you for as many years to come as we can keep it going.
Thank you all and Semper Fidelis,
