OUTING FOR THE DISABLED
Huge thanks goes out to everybody who participated in the 29th annual outing for the disabled. Thanks to the Bergen County parks department, particularly Todd and Vince for all their help. Thank you Tim with the Ridgewood parts department for having all the supplies ready to go first thing in the morning. I'd like to thank the food crew for keeping the burgers and dogs coming out as fast as that they were disappearing. I'd also like to thank the rod and reel crew... you were spitting out rods quicker than they were coming in. While our lakeside volunteers were slightly lacking in fishing skills, you turned over more than your fair share of rod and reels today. I'd like to particularly thank the Bergen members who toughed it out lakeside assisting as many groups of people as they could. This was the first year I truly realized how many people lack basic fishing skills. I'd like to thank Nick, Andy, Kim, Frank, and Alan for running out for last-minute items I also like to thank my wife Lisa for running all the way home to pick up the spatulas in tongs. I'm still planning on coming up for the classic at 1000 Islands on Thursday evening. I'd like to bring all of the leftover hamburgers and have a barbecue on Friday evening, I'll be the cook this time. I'd like to thank Greg and Dave for taking a few hours of footage.
