Hello everyone,

The NorCal HOW team has gathered and decided that our 6th, and possibly, last event for 2017 will be hosted at San Pablo Reservoir on Friday, November 10, 2017. This is Vet's day observed so hopefully we get a good turnout due to the holiday. We plan to try and accommodate approximately 20 vets that day. 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 carrying kayaks, prepping and cooking food, ensuring vets are rigged up safely with PFDs and rods, etc.

Few rules:
1. No Alcohol allowed at HOW Events
2. If you choose to bring your own kayak, it will be subject to inspection by the lake employees. They can be strict.  Kayaks must be clean and dry, no water at all and no damp seats!  We usually could use a few folks willing to take vets out on our tandems or your own as guides.
3. No SUPs allowed on EBMUD lakes.
4. Its technically a no water contact lake so just be aware of that. They haven't been too strict on us before though.
5. Please take pictures of the vets, but ask them if they're OK with it first.  Some are not willing to have their picture taken, but those that are usually really appreciate the pictures.

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.

I'm free that day and would be happy to do shore duty if needed. I don't know nothin' 'bout catchin' no bass in a freshwater pond so I'd be useless on the water, but let me know if I can help. I do know how to carry a kayak and cook.

I am working full-time for another larger contracting corporation now so there is a reasonable chance that I won't be able to make this one as it is on a week day.
