2018 EVENT LIST

Fin Addict Military Vets on the Water

Military Veterans & Guest "Giving Back"

November 17, 2018

It's that time again folks!! Since 2011 Fin Addict Angler has supported fishing events honoring our Military Veterans. In 2017, we started the "Fin Addict Military Vets on the Water" at Calaveras Lake. This free event is for our military veterans and their dependents, these men and women are taken out on the water by a team of volunteer boat captains for a day of fishing and camaraderie. After all that fun, The Lone Star Grillers volunteer to prepare a hearty Texas Barbecue with all the fixings in honor of our Military Veterans. 

This is an awesome time devoted to giving back to those who served our country!

To make this happen, we need boat captains, some volunteers, and donations. For donations or to volunteer as a boat captain please contact (Oscar) Shimano Penn at info@finaddictangler.org or 210-643-3396, if you like volunteer around camp please contact Alizabeth at volunteer@finaddictangler.org. To register as a veteran, please click the "register" button and fill out the form to get on the list.

 

We need all the help we can get on this one.
