Day 1 - Take a Vet Fishing - Fox Lake Event

***PLEASE READ***

Per our attorney and DUE TO COVID - AT THIS TIME - we are NOT allowed to have a "traditional" Take a Vet Fishing - Day of Giving Back - event. Instead, we will be hosting TWO DAY events with FISHING ONLY!

NO HOTEL ROOMS WILL BE PROVIDED FOR THESE TWO DAY EVENTS

Each day (Saturday and Sunday) we will take 20 DIFFERENT Veterans out on 10 guide boats (2 Veterans per boat + a Guide - NO EXCEPTIONS!) There WILL be at least 1 "pontoon style boat" per event for our disabled or elderly Veterans.

This will allow us to take 40 DIFFERENT veterans out - per weekend.

PLEASE NOTE! IF YOU SIGN UP FOR SATURDAY - YOU CANNOT SIGN UP FOR SUNDAY ALSO! - You can only sign up for 1 Day per weekend and 1 event per year (at this time).

Take a Vet Fishing will provide sack lunches on the boat while fishing, or feel free to bring your own sack lunch. Waters will be provided on the boats.

You will be required to sign a Covid release form the morning of the event, and you will be subject to a digital temperature reading on your forehead.

You WILL BE REQUIRED to wear a mask at all times (except when eating) while in the boat. We are ABSOLUTELY REQUIRED to adhere to all state and local guidelines - as it relates to Covid policies.

WE NEED TO KEEP OUR GUIDES AND VETERANS SAFE!
