I was asked to personally present the rod at the banquet on Sunday. My wife and I got up early to meet the river helpers, CFR folks, and the ladies. It was a great
experience. The lady that won my rod last year gave it back to be presented to another lady. She wasn't going to use it. I had the pleasure of presenting it also.
The lady who won this year's rod told my wife and me that, by all rights, she shouldn't be here. She was diagnosed with Stage IV cancer but was doing great. It was
touching as she said the rod would be a "memorial" as her father loved to fish. I have some pix of the rod that I will transfer to Photobucket and post real soon. All the
River Helpers (guides), my wife and me were given a treat- pink or lavender feather boas and gold tiaras and beads. I'm looking forward to next year.
