Then again on April 16 The Mr and Mrs Bass Club made another parade appearance only this time in Georgetown for its annual Red Poppy Festival.  Pete and Rose Trevino and Brent Parish along with step daughters Tori and Katlyn all showed up to participate in the event.  The bubble machine once again was a big hit and thanks to Glenda Summers, the Parish boat had a large stuffed bass on board which seemed to be quite the conversation starter.

Many thanks to everyone who took the time to participate.  It was a lot of fun waving and smiling to all the parade attendees.  I look forward to doing more of these in the future and hope that you do too.

One Hundred and eighty dollars was collected from our annual raffle and was donated to the Capital Area Food Bank; this provided 540 meals for Austin families.

Soldier on the water 2010Soldier on the Water 2010

By Pete Trevino

Soldier on the water was put on by Canyon Bass Club at Lake Bastrop and had many sponsors.

Tony Brawdy was the soldier in my boat, he’s from Oklahoma. (I didn’t hold it against him)

All of the servicemen and servicewomen that participated had been injured on the battlefield.
Most of them had walking canes, others walked with a limp , one was in a wheelchair (his legs had been removed).

It was truly awesome to be able to spend a day with one of our soldiers who had been over there “taking care of business”.
He used to be a 50 cal-gunner, is now recovering from is wounds and will be getting out of the service at the end of this year.

On the way home I couldn’t help to think of what the men and women in the service have to go through so we can have the freedom to go fishing and live the country that is so wonderful…

I hope next year more of the Mr and Mrs can participate in this great outing or one similar.
