Signarama Ventura will be donating a coupon for 2, 3' x 10' custom banners and another coupon worth $500, good towards a vehicle wrap (Boat, car, or vehicle you need wrapped.

I contacted Roger Larocque at Peregrine 250 and I'll be picking up product this Saturday at the NBW castaic event that he will be donating for this benefit tourney.

I'll let Jason H decide how he wishes to raffle the donations.

I would like to "Thank Everyone" for all of there "Support and Prayers" in this difficult time. Above all, Eric is doing good. It was touch and go for a while. We are taking it one day at a time. What I have noticed over the years, fishermen are a special group of individuals. We are a family. We are very competive on the water, but when the day is done we come together for a laugh and a joke. When the chips are down, the fish community always raises to the top. You have done it again. I would like to Thank Jason and ABA for putting on this Benefit Tournament for Eric. This is building up to be a awesome event. I would like to "Thank All" of those that have donated there time and some of the most incredible Raffle Prizes for this event. Take a look at the list of Great Raffle Suppliers we have so far:

I would be honored if you would add QuickDrops dropshot weights to the list. I am driving up from San Juan Capistrano to fish for this great cause, and will bring the QuickDrops with me. I hope everyone considers fishing this event, and I thank ABA for putting it on. I will also cover the event hopefully for a future story.

I would like to "Thank" Jason for his vision, and ABA for there support. With over a 100 fishermen and friends gathered together to support Eric was far beyond what we invisioned. Everyone had a great time and the lucky winners came away with some pretty impessive raffle prizes. I would like to say "Thank You" to "EVERYONE" that donated there time and the most imperssive raffle prizes I have ever seen at a single event. Eric was blown away by everyones kind words and support. He is doing and feeling good, but has a battle ahead of him. "Thank You Again To All" and Mike, what an awesome banner!! Hoplfully Eric can get back on the water soon!!! With all your continued "Support and Prayers", he will be there before you know it!!!
