Default SC You Getting Called Out

The list for the SC tourney is sad.
How many of you guys are soaking up the info and not even paying your $6 a month?
If you cant I understand. Family comes first. We all have to prioritize and make ends meet.
I've never fished a tourney(never caught a trout) but its gona be fun and a great cause.
Little Angels can have my $ no matter what happens to the tourney.


Step up SC................................................ .....

Y'all know i am friends w/ Bobby that runs little angels foundation. It would hurt me to the core to tell him that WE as a bunch of friends and a site couldn't garner enough interest to hold a tourney to support little angels. Not worried about a damn tee shirt or a prize. Just want to make a statement that we (all of us) at Salty cajun stand tall when we support something.

This disgusts me, honestly. If anyone has watched this site for the last several years, you'd know that I, along with others, have busted our butts to make a go of things charitable! I've headed up the Christmas families since 2010. My collision center has donated firearms to the auctions for the tourney whose recipients are unknown. I, along with friends have played music at a tourney, which cost me over $500 just to be there for the weekend, at which we did for free and donated all of the tips to whatever the cause was that year. I didn't even get to cast a line that year! I've signed up again this year and, wholeheartedly believe that we, as a site can make this deal huge! What I have seen thus far is dismal and, terribly disappointing!

Where are all those who cried about moving the tourney to July so that it wasn't so hot?! Where all of those who have walked away with way more in prizes than they did entry fees? Lastly, why didn't SC even make an official sponsor flier this year?...This one may get me a ban but, I'm alright with it. If WE aren't interested in doing this charity stuff any longer, let me know...It will save me COUNTLESS hours during the holidays!

I agree with Southern151. A flyer was used before and got posted on peoples facebook pages. It definitely gets the word out quickly. I guess this year only those who visit this site may know about it even happening.

Same here ! We have worked our butts off to do the christmas thing for the last few years . Not asking for any kudos, we just tell the recipients that it's from salty cajun.
Now that We ask the membership to support something we believe in and it falls out like a gut shot seagull? ***? If you can't do it Contribute . If You can't contribute entry fee kick in $10 . This is fixing to be embarrassing . Not only to corey and i but to the whole bunch that call salty cajun home.

As the new guy and tournament newbie this is my take. I've only been here (sc) a year but have seen what Southern and Eman have put into Little Angels.
I for one have never fished a tourney of any kind and also have never caught a trout before. Im doing it for a good cause and I'll be fishing with my friend Ace. Im going to have fun for a good cause. Don't care about the shirt or any of the trophies.
No shirts and bring your own lunch. Let all the money go where its needed. Some fish stories and a cold one with the guys. Do we need more?

There's a flier that the Little Angels Foundation made on their own but, it lacks sponsors. I'm not even sure who, if anyone, is sponsoring this year.

It's hard to get sponsors when when they get no publicity for their charitable ways.

I genuinely thank you! Anyone here who may not like me on a personal basis needs to put that aside. I've seen what this foundation does and, have put my blood, sweat, tears, shop and, materials into it. What these folks do is something that we never want to think about having to make the call on but, they are there if the need arises. It's a tough conversation and, even tougher to walk through their shop...I've done it! It will make your toes curl to see the sizes of some of those caskets!

I couldn't care less about a fish. I do, however, care about supporting a cause that supports a community!

If you need any more inspiration, here is a link to a recent article on the foundation...http://www.thecreole.com/?p=28272
