September 14th - Firefighter's Fundraiser Tournament
« on: August 20, 2013, 06:13:46 PM »
As many of your know, on May 31st, four HFD firefighter died in a fire on the Southwest Freeway, not too far from where we have our meetings.  In addition, several firemen were injured and have incurred major medical bills, not to mention other family hardships. Prior to this,  the HFD Softball team had scheduled a fishing tournament to raise money for their team. After the tragedy, they decided that ALL funds raised would go towards helping these brave souls and their families.

Golden & I are trying to get at least a couple of teams, if not a whole division of fly fishers to participate in this event. The cost is $200/team of 4. We would also like to propose that the club consider helping to defray the costs of the teams.  I have attached the original flyer with the details (pre-May31). Remember, the money is going to help the firemen and their families, not the softball team.

Please post your thoughts/interest here. We will need to get the teams together rather quickly, so we need to get an idea of the interest ASAP!

With Jack's boat, that opens it up for more people.  I'll get more details posted in the next 48 hrs. Sorry I haven't been as on top of this as I s/h/b, but I've been inundated at the office. I s/b at Orvis tonight for a bit.

Looks like Team Texas FlyFishers be Joe & Mike in one boat and Jack & me the other. If 4 more get together between now & Sat, we can field a second team. I will call Mike, Joe & jack on Thursday evening to set up meeting places, etc.

Well, Jack, John, Joe & I got there around 7ish only to find out that the tournament was postponed until the spring! ???  We decided to launch anyways only to find that part of the bay was seriously kicked up from the NE wind. After about 10 minute, we bailed out and went over to Louie's to launch.  We tried the north shore grass flats of West Bay, but didn't see a thing. The weather morons predicted 10 mph NE winds. Let's try 15-20 instead! Finally, we decided that lunch at Louie's was a better proposition and pulled the boats. Tough day, but glad to get out on the water anyways.
