Charity fishing tourney

Recommended Posts

Hi all

I hope this post doesn't rub anyone the wrong way, but here it goes.

Recently I've become very active with the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, as far as helping with fundraisers and other activities. Before my son was born I had heard very little about this disease, and if it's possible knew even less. CF is a genetic disease that is terminal and at this point incurable. But in the last 10 years they have been able to isolate the gene that causes it and have made great strides in the treatment of patients and as well as working towards the eventual cure of this killer. Most people don't realize that one out of every 30 Americans carry the gene that causes this defect. That's 10 million symptomless carries in the U.S. alone. This is what I'm asking help with.

We are having a fishing tournament at Ft. Peck Montana on August 7th. With all the proceeds going to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. Anyone who want's to participate I will get the information to you. Another part of the tourney that we are working on is a silent auction. If ANYONE would be interested in donating something for the auction I would be indebted. I hope this post finds you and your families in good health.

Maybe I could request one more thing from all of ya. After you read this... say a little prayer for my son and the 30,000 other kids in the U.S. who have got this disease that a cure is coming soon.

Thanks for taking the time to read this and God bless.

For those of you that do not know.

Cystic Fibrosis is a brutal genetic disease. Babies and children cannot put on weight properly, their lungs are constantly filling up and deteriorating. It's a daily struggle for these kids to survive and their families to cope. It has become better for those kids and families over the years and hopefully someday soon a cure is found.

Remember, 1 in 30 of you, who visit these forums, carries the gene and most likely do not know it.

It's a great cause Gusher, I wish you well.

    • Well Thank God for your wife. Shes a saint. 😇
    • 1 x 6 untreated red cedar bds cut to 15" for the weber has worked good for me. You can get lots of cooks on one board.  It's a lot cheaper than getting them at a grill store. The salmon looks good!
    • Yes, it's Food Grade cedar! 😋
    • Seeing the plank brings up a question.   Is that cedar that is sold as cooking planks any different than the stuff sold at the lumber yard for various purposes, like siding or roofing or docks?   
    • solo o... FALTA PESCAAA.. 
    • Last friday of lent and Coborns had a flash sale on fresh salmon so I put some on my overpriced pellet grill.   Good thing my wife talks me into sacrificing eating meat on Fridays of lent, you know, for Jesus.    
    • Got up early and put this small piece of brisket on my overpriced pellet smoker. I've never done one this small but my buddy who owns a meat market gave it to me at half price to get rid of it. It's  almost foiling time now at 10:30 am.
    • I’m in St. Cloud for Easter weekend, and decided to check out nearby Little Rock Creek. I had very low expectations. There’s a few easements, and a nice little wildlife management area, but the creek really isn’t very fishable. Water was pretty high, and banks were flooded. Overhanging brush would make fishing impossible in summer. Didn’t catch anything. Wasn’t disappointed though. Now I know not to bother again. Was still a nice morning for a walk in the country.
    • Haha. So, her boots kept falling off so much (several sizes too big), she eventually put them on the wrong feet. I tried telling her that, which is always a losing battle on my part. I thought maybe, that if they were on the wrong feet, they would stay on better. They did not.   This is the best time of year to take kids out trout fishing. No leaves on the trees, brush is still dead and matted down, so casting and walking are super easy.
