Title: Veterans Walleye Tournament needs boaters
Post by: Frank-o on February 01, 2011, 05:22:15 PM
Here is a great opportunity to take a military veteran fishing for a day in a walleye tournament. I know this a bass fishing site, but many of you are also avid walleye fishermen.  For those interested, please read the attached message copied & pasted from an email i received from Rick Briggs at BIAMI. Please do not contact Major Briggs at BIAMI, this is from Nels Larsen and he is the POC.
Thanks to all !

Need Boat Captains ASAP

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 Meeting”.  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
