Thumbs up Big Brother Day!

I'll be co-meistering the Big Brother Day with Heather Coppock again this year and need a show of hands for those who can commit to spending the morning of Father's Day from 8am through shore lunch with a Big Brother and Little Brother in Chatham, Cape Cod. Father's Day is June 15th. Please do not reply unless you can absolutely commit to do it. We finish up after lunch so you'll have afternoon and dinner with your own family if desired.

We have currently confirmed:

Gregg,
Mike and
Papa Estey
Nick Svencer
Quentin
Adrian
Tim Watts
Myself and my son and daughter
Seuss and roomie
JimS and Son
TomD
Rooster and his sons
Jerry Fabiano
Bill
Michael
John Morin
CSJ60

We only need 3 more who can make an otherwise ungratifying day for a fatherless child one that is full of joy.

Thank you

Thumbs up

You better believe it, I'll be there! One of the best Fathers Days I have ever spent. This is probably because it wasn't centered around this old guy but a bunch of kids and guys who take the time to show them some of the good things in life. I can attest that this is one great day!:hehe:

I'm in. My roommate is planning on joining us again as well to help out with logistics.

What great fun last year. The look on my Brother's face when he hooked into a keeper

Is it possible some of the same kids may return this year? I know Heather had more interest than we could accommodate last year.

Just spoke with Heather... although we are just getting started it would be great to have the crew in place for June.

If there are other members who can participate in this amazing event for the kids, please put your hat in the ring. We need 20 mentors to make this work.

Thanks!

Following the threads on last year's event, I can unequoically place my name on the list of assistants for this event. Further, my son, 23 year-old Chris has involuntarily volunteered. Keep us posted on necessities. I've got lots of spare equipment, some of it can be donated for future outings with the youth.

Nick -

I think I have 20 left over, let me take a count in the AM and let you know. John, I think if each chaperone puts a couple of flies in the box for their pair the gesture will have a meaningful result.

Admiral Ed suggests that we get the Monomoy Wildlife Staff to make a presentation about the refuge as they do for all group visits. That's a winner.

We are still several mentors short - but with some time left to meet the goal. I understand it's not easy to block out the time, but if you can make it please put your name in... I guarantee there are few things you'll do this year that will give you as much satisfaction - and you will make a huge impression on a kid who can really use a joyful Father's Day despite the irony.

Ok Juro, sounds good. I have no problem tying up a few flies, we could even do a sort of fly swap for the kids. That way everyone can tye up one type of fly, and we can distribute evenly.

Great! Thanks for giving a little time to show these kids just how wonderful a fishing trip can be, and in the mean time they end up showing us just how wonderful discovery is all over again through their vibrant eyes and cheerful voices.

I hope we can find 8 more volunteers with a month to go until Father's Day morning.

This event runs in the morning so those who need to get home for afternoon barbeque will have no problem doing so.

Talking

I can be there also. Never did this before, but will be up the Cape with the family on this day. Do we bring extra fly rods to loan or is it best to bring a spinner or two? Let me know what to bring and where, when we meet up.
Tight lines.

I will bring my boys, also. They are 16 + 18 yrs. old. The 18 yr old is pretty good with his spinning rod and could assist other kids, if needed.
Where do we meet?
