Guys I'm trying to help a captain here on 2cool, one of us. His handle is *******, remember the massive ling he posted a few weeks ago. His child 8 mos old is in Tx Childrens Hospital in a ferocious battle with leukemia, and has been there a while. We are setting up a fundraiser auction/banquet to help this man out on Aug 12th at the VFW at 290 and Telge, NW Houston, from 11:00am till 6:00pm.

We need as many 2coolers as possible. Please pm me if you have anything to offer. We were talking about a tourny with maybe triggerfish just to make it a blast. Can we get some blue water help, please.

I think a triggerfish Tourny is a helluva idea. Kids love catching them and seems appropriate under the circumstances. Why don't you post up what you need?

Thanks George and I got a pm for a new place for you, maybe. Now you mentioned youth tourney now I'm thinking. Would captains, (and by that if you drive a boat your a skipper) be willing to take some kids offshore and you don't have to go far, for a huge trigger or the most poundage of triggers. I guess I need someone in the tournament field to help. Is this a real possibillity. What would be the entry/payout? Calcutta? Can we do this big like a King contest? This will take some help. Can someone ring in with ideas?

Thanks guys I knew I could count on the blue boys to help. When can we do this? I would like to make it a smooth day, no storms. What to charge per boat of fisherman? Calcutta auction? Place to gather, like Bucees?, where? Don't stop now we're on to something here. I got a blessing from the big guy Mont. We gotta boat, we're in. Gas is high but the tears of joy out weigh it.

$50-100 per angler? adults on boat pay for gas/bait/whatever, with triggerfish, the ride should not be too far.

Maybe have a BBQ for all the fishermen. I would not mind bringing 30-50 lbs of chicken fajitas with me.

I will come with my 6 y/o (2 entries) but without a boat most likely being that far north.

That cool a lot of us northern guys would like to meet you. This is the perfect way to meet the other end of the phone line. I have not met anyone yet that I would not fish with. Should we try sooner to get the kids while summer break is stil kickin'? You think we can beat James Howell for the trigger bag? LOL J/K.

b4b - mirror the annual point drum tourney in galveston. it was a grand event and the participants had a fantastic time. a dinner followed the day of fishing. there was also a silent and live auction. awards were given at the end.

i think with some time and planning, we could make this event happen. let me know if you need any help. the idea is to get many people / sponsors involved, in an organized manner and it will be a success.

i have a waiding belt combo (new in box) that i would like to donate. let me know where to send it - mark
