Hi All,

The NorCal HOW team has planned our next event to be hosted at Kelsey Bass Ranch over the weekend of October 13-15. We plan to try and accommodate approximately 20 vets + family members that weekend.  Most of the vets will likely fish on Saturday, but a few may choose to camp and fish with us.

We will be needing some volunteers to take veterans out on the water as well as some to help with shore duty tasks such as prepping and cooking food, ensuring vets are rigged up safely with PFDs and rods, etc.  Some vets may need fishing help, and we could definitely use a few people on the water guiding the vets to fish.

Food schedule:
Friday night potluck/chinese food dinner
Saturday - Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner provided
Sunday - Breakfast provided.

Volunteers are welcome to show up starting on Thursday night and stay until Sunday evening.

Target fish species are Largemouth Bass, with the chance for other species such as Bluegill and Catfish. Please be aware that Kelsey Bass Ranch is a catch & release lake for bass, but other species may be kept if preferred.  We generally can cull a few of the smaller bass if we want to but generally do not.  The weather should be good, and hopefully the fishing will be great!

Rules:
1. No Alcohol is allowed at HOW events.
2. Please wear proper attire as it is possible that you will get wet. Preference is for base layer of non-cotton clothing such as polyester, nylon, or synthetic wool, with a top layer of something water resistant.
3. We expect the temperatures to be warm, but temperatures in the valley can be variable in October.  So be prepared for anything.
4. Please bring your own tents and camping gear - if you have extra gear that some vets may be able to use for the weekend if they choose to camp, let us know.

If you would like to attend this event as a volunteer or participant, please contact us by email at Communications.NorCal@heroesonthewater.org.

If you think you can help join us, please post in this thread.  If you know of any veterans or active duty military that may want to attend, contact Raydon.  We'll also post up the event details on our FB page at www.facebook.com/NorCalHOW.  Please follow this thread for updates on what we need from you guys as to timing of showing up, cleaning up, etc.

Thanks,
Ben

Hey All,

   I have ben letting Raydon and Ben handle this one since I have been  busy with work. Yes work!!

Lets start keeping track of volunteers here and keep this as the informational thread. I will update tis list as we go so everyone knows who will be in attendance.

We will be feeding at least 2vets and 30 family members at this point. That means that we will need volunteers if they are camping to be self sufficient with their own food on Thursday, Friday, and Sunday. We could maybe do a pot luck on Fri, but I don't have time to do anything for arranging that. I think we are still feeding everyone breakfast and lunch on Sat.

Volunteers:
Rob
Ben
Raydon
Jack
Tom-wormguy
James Snyder YAB
Matt Brannon
Amanda Brannon
TW
Will YAB
Paul Anderson + 4 YAB
Mike-Last Cast
Adam Baumbach YAB and vet with own gear
