Hey Guys,

Mark Pastick has always done his best to provide us NorCal Kayak Anglers a derby to fish and a worthwhile cause to contribute.  :smt038

This upcoming event marks the 5th year, a mini-milestone and certainly the longest running kayak fishing event in NorCal.  :smt041

I'd thought it be nice to really turn it up and try to organize 'us' as a group to provide more food and prizes for such a worthy cause - us.

I'm going to donate:

Prize: Fish Easy 1 - New in Box, though an older model, maybe someone could use it.

Food: Appetizer - bacon wrapped asparagus

If anyone wants to donate items as well, please post on this thread so we can keep tabs to keep down on duplication or too much of one thing like - beer. :beer3

This is a good idea.  I hope to donate a 40lb halibut to the pot luck.  I think I have an unopenned VHF radio waterproof case to donate as a back up.   :smt002

I sent the e-mail to Pacific Coast Sportfishing to get a donation or maybe even a write-up. I know some of you also have written articles for other sites or magazines - let em know.

Dear PCS,

I'm writing to ask for a 1 year subscription to Pacific Coast Sportfishing as a prize for the 2005 Kayak Connection Fishing Derby. This contest is held twice yearly (in the beginning and end of the summer, around Father's Day and Grandfather's Day respectively) and is a benefit for the Monterey Bay Salmon and Trout Restoration Project.
This year is the 5th year running and is the oldest if not only, kayak contest in Northern California. As a subscriber to your magazine, I know that you frequently have kayak fishing articles which I thoroughly enjoy and thought that other <www.norcalkayakanglers.com> might as well.
I know that this is short notice, but I hope you would deem to give us NorCal Kayak Anglers a chance to win a subscription to your informative & entertaining magazine.
Please contact Mark Pastick of Kayak Connection if you would be interested in donating as subscription or in the very least, feature our derby in an upcoming issue.

Thank you for your time,

~Elric Leano
aka Hobi-Wan Kenobi

PS: I'm not affiliated w/ Kayak Connection, Ocean Kayak, but am a proud member of NorCalKayakAnglers.com

I hope they read it in time.

FYI: If you send a photo or two and a very brief report of the event (2-3 paragraphs) PCS may choose to publish it in their Tournament Lines section. The tournament reports are usually press releases written by the tournament organizers.
