Hey I told you I sucked at this!
I was at the Calgary Fly Fishing Show for Jan. 22,23 and 24th.
Our goal was to raise awareness for Project Healing Waters Canada. Our hopes are to get the word to Canadian troops who are at home recovering or learning to deal with anything from loss of limbs to PTSD and everything in between. So hey if you have an avenue in Canada, to let people know we exist please do so. Our website is www.projecthealingwaters.ca
The show was a huge success for us! We found people who are actively helping already. One fellow a retired Lcol from Canadian Armed Forces is going to set up a trip for the troops in 2011. This will probably involve a combined Canadian/American presence like the one we are having in July that is organized by Project Healing Waters Inc. through Mark Snyder who has organized it for two years previously.
Another offer of help came from a rod manufacturer and many other people that we met and spoke to at the show.
There is lots to do between now and Spring that is for sure!
Tomorrow I am off to CFB Edmonton where I am teaching a couple of soldiers more casting. There is a desire in them to accomplish something. It seems to be ingrained, "don't just sit there do something, anything, but don't just sit."
Take care all, talk to you again soon.
