I work for the Wounded Warrior Project, am a disabled Veteran myself and I am inquiring on group pricing rates for an introductory class for 10 Warriors.
Could you please provide me with pricing? I work in the Houston area, have done some fly fishing and realize the therapeutic value of our Warriors being exposed to fly fishing. If this is as popular as I believe it will be then I would want to host it as a reoccurring event to be held once quarterly. Thank you for your time.
Park Drive, Suite 100
