We need a few volunteers to take Vets kids fishing

8 posts in this topic

Hey All,

The Twin Cities Chapter of Muskies Inc is hosting a youth event where we'll be taking the kids/families of activated and recently returned vets out fishing. Right now we have 40 families signed up with the promise of more. Due to the awesome response we're in need of a few more boats to meet the demand. If we don't get a boat for each then we'll just shuttle them back and forth which is ok too, but not ideal.

The specifics:

Where: Lake Minnetonka, Maynard's Restaurant

When: Friday 21th August (this Friday) 6:30am-noon.

What we need: anyone who can take some people out multispecies fishing on Minnetonka. A boat is required as well as equipment to outfit a kid or two.

-There will also be kids fishing on the docks there and we could use a few people floating around helping them out.

Maynard's will be providing lunch for all those captains. If you're available I urge you all to help out in whatever way you can.

If anyone can help us out drop me a line:

Thanks,

Shawn

What a great thing to do. I don't think I can get out of work on such short notice, but I'll look at a couple scenarios. If I can just show up last minute, would that be helpful at all?

We can always use the help propster. Just drop me a line ahead of time if you can so I can fill you in on the program.

Thanks!

I would love to help out but we're leaving for a family vacation Friday at noon. It's been a while since I attended an MI event and I'm due. Next time I'm in.

Thanks a lot Shawn for setting this up, sounds like a great event, and thanks for all the work you do for MI, Vets and Kids.

See ya there Shawn; I cant thank those that have set this all up enough, these family's have earned a nice day on the water, I'm just thankful MI is looking to fill that need, out of all the things Ive seen done for the future and the betterment of fishing this is #1.

I'm confident these events will cover the state next year, this is what working together and Muskies Inc in MN is all about.

I finally got to read the full page color write up in the Outdoor News, you guys did a great job Shawn, this is something Muskies inc can be very proud of and I can see expanding across MN very shortly.

Hats off to all those that helped and brought boats, I'm sure it was a day these military family's will remember for along time.

Muskies Inc is more than just a fish with a fool chasing it.

    • Seen on the channel 5 news the other night, plans to remove a dam in River Falls. They didn't specify which dam, or if it would be both dams. The movement is gaining popularity, especially with residents. And more input meetings will be planned. However, if the project is ok'd, it doesn't sound like it will be in the near future. I'm all for the dam removal! Both of them!
    • Hey Dave, I am sorry to hear that. If you need anything you have my number.  Send me a PM or text and let me know whats going on. Recurring infection? Low blood supply?     
    • Yes. But he has a great plan to utilize the excess rail capacity in the country by relocating those who disagree with him. It's gonna be a real gas. 
    • 100% A-OK is how that's working out, but I'm not surprised by the continued confusion. Even beside Texas vs Johnson, the idea of stripping citizenship from people hasn't stood up in court.
    • You must have been on some sh*tty ice for it to do that... Love my heavy spud bar, if it doesn't go through in a couple wacks I feel pretty darn confident in stepping...Spud bar,picks,pfd,rope, common sense all ya need
    • Protecting the rights of the id-oits, for the purpose of teaching others how not to be an id-iot is paramount. It goes both ways.........
    • What? You don't like the 1st amendment?
    • there is a seat belt law, why not have a ice picks law? if you are caught out ice fishing before the 1st of the year without picks, you get a "stupid" ticket.
    • So burning a Quran, or pouring bacon grease on it must be protected as well?  And flying the Stars and Bars?  How is that working out?
