    I was searching the web for your Send A Kid Fishing Program to see if it is still in affect as we donate to it in our son’s name (Bryan Jones); Bryan was your Art Director. He died 8 years ago this month and would have loved the Kayak Fishing Classic. So glad to see that some of the proceeds from the classic will go to the Send A Kid Fishing program.
