Greetings to everyone,

The 2017 Fishing for Freedom Event is now history.  We had 226 Teams (+) family members show up at the banquet on Friday night.  Our guest speaker was Randy Howell B.A.S.S. Elite Classic Champion.  Gary Klein was there also representing Duckett Industries.   Not only did we have some Outstanding Texas BBQ served to us by Rudy's we also had a  raffle ticket drawing.  There was a live auction for some pretty nice fire arms and some Texas Outdoor hunting and fishing trips.  One of the sponsors even gave out a Guided Safari hunting trip over to Africa. 

Duckett Industries provided some outstanding gifts to our Purple Heart Awardees.  Gary Klein and Randy Howell made the presentation to the Wounded Warriors.  Below are a few pictures of the banquet.

Tks guys for all the comments.  Its truly a great event and it gets better every year.  This event occurs every year in Oct.  Sign up begins at midnight on Aug 31st morning of 1 Sept.  Its all done on line and its really hassle free.

It would be cool if we could have a group of guys from UB fish this event.
