Hello Ohio Members.

I have an event scheduled for this weekend.
It will be an afternoon of Trout Fishing on Friday from Noon until around 5 pm, then dinner (free), nights hotel stay (free), and then on Saturday morning until around 1pm is a Pheasnat hunt on a private hunting club. With free lunch.

This event is for either Combat Wounded Veterans, or Combat Vets.
I have 2 open slots due to some cancelations. I will provide them on a 1st come 1st reserved basis.

If interested IM me with your information and contact #.

If you do not fit the criteria above, but know someone that does, please pass this along.

The only out of pocket cost will be travel to and from the event.

I still have 2 slots open.

I will be on the road starting at 0200.
So if you want a slot, IM me with contact info, and I will give a call when I get up and running with directions/information.

Every time we do an event, I am always amazed at how humble each one of them is, and think they do not deserve what we do to get them out of the hospitals to get their minds off injuries and such.

Every one of them is a GREAT AMERICAN.

Well we made it back, and let me tell you it was an awesome weekend.

FlyFishing for Trout, and Pheasant Hunting over some AWESOME dogs.

The kindness, gratitude shown these deserving Wounded Warriors was unbelieveable.
The folks from Ohio made this weekend something these Wounded Warriors will remember for a long time to come.

Everyone told me they want to make it an annual event, and are already making plans for next year's event.
They said they were going to improve it, and I honestly do not know how that could be possible.
Both meals were fit for a King. The personal instruction on FlyFishing, then the fishing, clay shooting, and then Pheasant hunt was a BLAST!

Rained on us both days, but not one of the Wounded Warriors wanted to quit.
Final tally, A WHOLE BUNCH OF TROUT, 47 Pheasants cleaned and on way home with them.

THANK YOU TO ALL FOR YOUR KINDNESS SHOWN THESE GREAT WOUNDED WARRIORS.

No effort on my part.
This event could not of happened without the effort,support,donations, and volunteers that provided an OUTSTANDING weekend for these Great Wounded Warriors.

I lost count of the amount of volunteers, but I would say it was close to 100+ for the 8 Wounded Warriors over the 2 days.

I have had the pleasure to see a lot of things in this great country, but the Patriotism and Generosity shown was unbelievable.

I can only hope that every event goes like this one. It definitely set a Standard that others will be judged by.
