    I should clarify. I am very appreciative for all the people who helped out. I did this post on here simply because I knew specific people were on here. So tried to name off as many as I could think of. But I do thank everyone who helped out.

    And no need to thank me. I do this out of the love for my country and those who help serve to keep us free. I do appreciate all the kind words on the food and camp setup. Chuck and I have planned, planned, and planned some more. By 2 Fly #3 we should get most speedbumps smoothed out. :)

    .....thinking of potential speedbumps........ya, I can't think of any either. You guys seem to have this pretty dialed down, especially for increasing the head/boat count from 10 to 20.

    Trust me. We had a few. But good planning made it unnoticeable. We have a few things to improve on. But was more behind the scenes stuff. Overall was a super success. :)

    Jerry--
    As we talked at the event, the only "possible" speed bump was that Jerry spent most of the weekend in a "full lather" rather than sitting in a comfortable chair with a cold beer directing traffic!! It was a well planned, well executed, and outstanding event. Thanks again.

    I know Jason said he was working on the pictures of the trip, where will he post them, anyone?

    He'll post some up here when he gets them out of that fancy image capturing device of his.

    LOL Dave. I gotta keep up quality control. Plus, my job for the event. :)

    Actually, may have to wait a bit before we can post up the pics. Have to get a copy of the pics to Chuck so he can get the ok from the VA and the WTB. Eventhough Jason owns the rights to the photos, the Gov't owns the rights to the vets/soldiers images. So have to get their written "ok" before we can post them up.

    I have a beef about someone, don't know who but it was very poor thinking on this persons part. The main reason for my beef is that it should never happen again to anyone.. Yes I was the one who got stuck but I'm not hurt. some one could have been. I was so pleased to find that when my name was called at the Raffle that the nice Simms foldup wading staff was still there. Any of you that have been around me see thas I have a wood staff when I walk and I'm not surefooted. Always have a staff when I wade. This Simms staff looked almost new. This week when I was packing things up I had it out and decided to open it up and look it over. It had been broken and would not work at all. used alittle and then put in the donated things on the table. yes I was up set but that soomeone would put a unusable piece of equipment out for what should mainly be for the troops benifit that could actually hurt some one was what really got to me and why I wote this. Thanks to whoever you are this group doesn.t need your help. From what I've heard of Simms and their rep for quality I would have thought this person would have retuned it for new one.

    Bob it was damaged in transport or was damaged leaving Simms. That was new stock donations we had received. So never used. Call Simms and send it back.

    The gift that keeps on giving!!! My vet just called to let me know the salmon are coming in on his home waters and he has some good access. Time to find an opening on my calendar and start making a salmon killer out of this trout boy. :D
